Safety Precautions for Covid-19

Safety Precautions for Covid-19

I want you to know that we take the health of our families very seriously.  We are taking all precautions possible to make sure the studio is safe from Covid-19 for all families.  Here are just a few of the things we will be doing to ensure safety for our families …

Communication

covid-19 safety

We will communicate before your session about your feelings moving forward with scheduling.  We will talk about the below safety precautions in the studio or on location.  I will confirm that no one participating in the session as had any viral symptoms in the last 14 days.  Upon entering the studio, each family will be asked to sign a form that says they have not had any symptoms of Covid 19.

Hand Washing

The Importance Of Global Handwashing Day

 Upon entering the studio all family members will be asked to wash their hands.  There will also be hand sanitizer readily available to be used at anytime during the session.  I will also be washing my hands thoroughly before, during (if needed) and after each session.

Masks

covid-19 safety

You are welcome to bring your own masks but Tracy will have them also.  She will be happy to wear one during your session if you prefer.  She will also have them available for you if you prefer to wear them.

Gloves

Clip Art Medical Gloves Clipart

Disposable gloves will also be available.  Tracy will happy to wear them if you prefer.  You will also be welcome to use them if you prefer.

 

Shoes

You will be asked to remove your shoes while in the studio.  If you will be wearing them for your session, you will put them on to wear in the shooting area and then asked to remove them for the other areas of the studio.  The floors will be disinfected after each session.

Family and session frequency

Safety Precautions for Covid-19

Until further notice, only immediate family members will be allowed in the studio.  Only those participating in the session.  ALSO-  for now, sessions will be scheduled every 3 days.  Although the studio will be disinfected thoroughly after each session this will ensure an extra measure of precaution.

Studio Cleaning

covid-19 safety

 After each session the studio will be disinfected with medical grade disinfectant and all wraps, props or wardrobe clothes borrowed will be washed and disinfected.

 

I hope all of these precautions will help you feel safe and comfortable before, during and after your session.  If you still have concerns and would like to chat about covid-19 or anything with Tracy you are welcome to reach out.  She is happy to address your concerns and reschedule or postpone your session if you are more comfortable doing so. 

A peek inside a session with Tracy Gabbard Photography

Peek Inside TGP

I am so excited to share a real sneak peek inside a session with ME at the Tracy Gabbard Photography studio! It showcases what the real experience when you choose Tracy to capture the most important time in your life.  Wether a new baby, a milestone session or a family session Tracy strives to give you not only custom created albums and wall art that will last a life time BUT ALSO an amazing experience.  She wants you to walk away with your heart full and with your home full of the joy of your family.   It took many hours of hard work, a WONDERFUL family and a talented videographer Shannon Kelly to pull it all off! It will now grace the home page of my website tracygabbard.com. Check it out when you have a chance! But for now… here it is!

*Disclaimer…. we did this peek inside video BEFORE social distancing. So, if you are uncomfortable meeting in the studio for consult we can do it via video until this all passes! :). We are enrolling families, children and babies for summer months. If our situation does not change with the virus dangers all prepaid money will be refunded if cancelled because of COVID-19.

NO Corona Virus at the Photography Studio

NO Corona Virus at My Photography Studio

It’s crazy out there!  We all want to say “NO Corona“. I understand, we are all concerned about so many aspects of this new virus and how it might effect our lives, health, finances and even on an entertainment level as more and more things are being cancelled we worry about tickets we have purchased and vacations we have planned. 

For those mommy’s expecting a baby or with small children they have even one more worry.  BUT I am here to tell you… “Don’t worry TGP mommy’s, I have you covered in at the photography studio“!  We are taking ALL precautions at the TGP Photography studio. We are stepping up our game even more that normal to make sure that if your baby or children are in the studio we are PREPARED and doing everything possible to ensure your families health. 

To Stay Safe

Here are a few things that we are doing (some of them we do anyway, all the time) to help make sure we all stay healthy!

  1. LOW volume!  My studio is ALWAYS a low volume studio.  I choose to not take on too many sessions per month to make sure I have enough time to devote to my clients and my family at home.  I DO NOT have many families in and out of the studio ever!  and rarely have 2 sessions in one day (in the studio at least).  Right now I will GUARANTEE at least 3 days between studio sessions in order to keep TGP photography studio sessions health.  Even if that means pushing a newborn session a couple days past when I would normally schedule them.  It looks like many news sources are sharing that this virus lasts up to about 3 days on surfaces.  So that will hopefully ensure that any germs that may have been left after disinfecting will also be gone!

2. DISINFECTING everything after every session!  We always do this anyway but we will be much more vigilant now.  Wiping down furniture and disinfecting floors.  Thankfully the studio is VERY simple so there is not much to disinfect!  We also use safe disinfectant that is not harmful to the environment to say “No Corona” to the virus!  BONUS!!!

3. WASHING all laundry!  Again – this something we ALWAYS do after every session.  Anything a baby or anyone uses gets washed.  We also use safe, non toxic laundry detergent to ensure your baby doesn’t have any reactions to any blankets or wraps that their delicate skin may touch.

4. DOGS – We love to welcome dogs to sessions with their new babies but at this time we will not be able to schedule any sessions with fur babies!  It is just to risky to any other families that may be headed into the studio, even if it is 3-4 days later.  We will let you know once we are able to welcome them back!  We will certainly miss them!

5. PLAY AREA – We have a nice little area with toys and things for children to do in the studio.  Until further notice we will remove the toys from this area.  We will ask families to bring in some small baskets of toys from their home to help keep the kids busy while they wait.  This is just to ensure that children are not playing with toys that other families children have played with.  This will also keep us from worrying that we missed something when disinfecting them.

6. GLOVES AND MASKS – We always have hand sanitizer out in the studio and I use it frequently when working with newborns but I will also have gloves and masks (until they run out LOL!) available for myself and any moms and dads that would like to use them.  I will also use them during your session by request.  I have NO problem doing this to help ensure your confidence!

7. SCREENING.  All clients will be contacted with in 24 hours of their session to make sure no one is exhibiting any symptoms of any type of sickness.  Most families are very respectful of this normally and reach out to let me know if they or their babies are not 100%.  However, I will be reaching out personally just to make sure we are all on the same page.

8. CHANGE – you are welcome to change your studio newborn session to an in home session!  This may give you a different look and feel to your session but we can do so and it will be just as beautiful as a studio session. If that is something you are interested in just let me know and we can talk about it!

I hope this helps reassure any families that already have a session scheduled or are thinking about it but are unsure because of any reason or particularly the corona virus that we are taking every precaution to say “No Corona” to the virus, and more to keep our studio a HEALTHY studio!  Please reach out if you have any questions!

New Beginnings Plan (NBP)- A baby with her best friend

New Beginnings Plan (NBP)

I have been blessed to see this family for the entire year!  They are members of the popular New Beginnings Plan (NBP), the TGP’s 1 year baby plan.  We have planned their session for the entire first year.  Each of their sessions will be unique with each one including something different.  Their fur baby, each set of grandparents at different sessions and I “think” the fur baby will come back for the first year session!  The New Beginnings Plan includes a minimum of 3 sessions but more can be added for no additional session fee.  They chose to add a 4th session.  This session is what I call a “heads up” session.  It happens around 3-4 months of age when they are holding their heads up really well on their own and smiling at their favorite people. 

They have chosen to do the New Beginnings Plan album.  An album that will build throughout the these sessions and will be printed and delivered after the last session.  They are also building a wall gallery that will include a favorite wall print from each session.  We have 1 more session left and I am excited to design their album!  I will make sure to show it to you when it comes in!  

Here are some favorites from her newborn session with her best friend and a few more I couldn’t leave out!New Beginnings Plan - TGP's 1 year baby plan  New Beginnings Plan - TGP's 1 year baby plan  New Beginnings Plan - TGP's 1 year baby plan  New Beginnings Plan - TGP's 1 year baby plan 

Here are a few favorites from her “heads up” session.  I am so jealous that I did not get professional pictures of my babies with their grandparents!  What a special memory for not only mom and dad but baby too!

Families come back all the time to capture the different stages. Tracy usually offers a special package that is only available for local families in the Tampa Bay area. The First Year photography sessions.

 

With this plan, families have the opportunity to capture photos of their babies during their first year of life, and the results are amazing.

It’s impressive how much they change in a single year.

Sometimes, families have their best friend in the studio as well. This lovely dog matches the set. They bring a warm touch to the canvas and overall laughter to the sessions.

Newborn Photography is an investment for your family.

Tracy not only offers digital photographs but also, custom-made products such as framed canvases, floating canvases, and high-quality albums to keep those valuable memories for a lifetime.

One Of The Cutest Family Photography Sessions In Tampa Bay With Tracy Gabbard ♥

Oh my goodness!

These babies are the happiest babies in town.

 

 

This time, we have one of the happiest families at the studio!

 

 

Tracy Gabbard and her photography studio in the Tampa Bay area bring you this super cute set from a very special Sitting Up session with this lovely family.

 

 

Mom, Dad, and older and younger brother are together in the studio and it was such a fun time. Tracy is one of the best photographers in the area for Family Photography and she offers a variety of services such as Newborn photography, Maternity photography and many more.

 

 

Our little one is captivating us with his beautiful smile on every photograph. We have the classic white charged canvas, expressing a soft, clean photograph that can make any room look wonderful with any of Tracy’s featured prints on floating or framed canvases.

 

 

Check out these classic and lovely family pictures where you can see them smiling and happy, it’s a picture that reflects one of those moments in life when everything aligns for the perfect photo!

 

 

And of course, older and younger brother with matching clothes, they look too cute! Tracy always makes sure to match and compliment the colors in the canvases, the use of gray here is important because it makes their skin tone stand out and the floor gets lost in the background, creating a very clean canvas.

 

 

One of the favorite pictures here, featuring the mother and younger brother, you can see her swinging and holding him right at the moment when he looks at the camera. The expression in his eyes denotes how happy he is, and you can feel how strong the love is.

 

 

And of course, we love to share all these adventures in the studio and the journey when babies are learning to sit up, one of the first achievements in any baby’s life.

You’ll love these Beach Maternity Photos but #15 will Steal Your Heart!

This family decided to break the routine and get outdoors with one of the top photographers in Tampa Bay; Tracy Gabbard.

This maternity session was so much fun with such a sweet family. They were so excited to meet their new baby but started early so they could capture the beauty of pregnancy. It was a beautiful day with just the perfect weather. All the way to the sunset, they went for a walk and found really beautiful spots for their photo session. 

Beach maternity sessions create the most precious memories from that special time in their lives, they were so much fun to work with and laughed through the entire session in such a positive photo shoot. Tracy was very excited to capture all their emotions and the love between them.

The beginning of a new chapter in your life is always one filled with joy, excitement and most of all, anticipation.  With the arrival of a new baby, chances are, you will spend hundreds, even thousands of dollars on baby furniture, clothes, and even toys.  And while many of these things are necessary, almost all of them will at some point be re-sold, given away or even tossed in the trash.  What will you keep forever?  The priceless images you invested in throughout the years your baby grows.  Professional, timeless, quality images are not something to be taken lightly.  These will be your memories that will be passed down and valued for your lifetime and your baby’s.

Don’t miss your opportunity to capture these beautiful memories for your family, contact Tracy’s studio today for a free consultation.

Tracy also provides photography services in the studio and offers a variety of packages for families, newborns, babies, children, and families, including her First Year Plan which captures the first milestones of the first year of a baby.

The Beauty Of Pregnancy

One of the most beautiful stages in the cycle of life: Maternity.

When two humans decide to become one and fusion their love and passion into a new soul, bringing a fresh, beautiful and young creature to the world we live in. 

This beautiful family joined Tracy at her studio to capture the magic that takes place before the new family member arrives.

Deeply in love, they showed their most romantic poses in front of the camera and captured one of the most important moments in their lives.

She feels happy and excited, waiting for her baby to join the family. It’s one of those experiences that can only be explained once gone through it. The majestic gift of maternity.

Mother and daughter don’t hesitate to show love and affection, proving that their bond is strongest than ever.

Even before being born, it has been proven that babies can feel their parent’s vibes and emotions, so parents can start showing their love and even talk to them from the very earliest stages in life.

Love is a beautiful bond to celebrate. For those who find their other half and that person who compliments their lives, we invite you to come into Tracy’s studio and capture that magic. It is special and you can make it last forever.

This plan is exclusive to the Tampa Bay area and provides families with priceless memories during that treasured first year. Everyone knows how fast that first-year flys by. The New Beginnings Plan makes it easy to capture those precious milestones during that first year. It is exhilarating, amazing, exhausting but yet cherished and wonderful. The New Beginnings Plan makes it easy to capture those precious first milestones during the first year.

This plan puts families on VIP status guaranteeing sessions to capture the precious newborn stage (between 5-14 days of birth), the sitting up/crawling milestones (usually between 7-9 months) and the very important first birthday session (during child’s birthday month).

Top Reasons Why Summer Is The Best Time Of The Year To Invest On Photography

It’s that time of the year to get your summer dresses on! 

Summer is for many reasons the best time of the year. It’s warm outside, the school vacation, and the endless fun. You are able to enjoy the warm weather because it’s the perfect atmosphere to do outdoor activities.

During summer, you’re free to do whatever you want, not worrying about curfew or waking up early for school.

Summertime is a great time to relax with friends and family by soaking up the sun at a beach or simply having dinner together, it is also the best time of the year to take beautiful pictures at the park and around nature in general.

I love the hot and humid days that makes you want to dive into a fresh and cold pool. When summertime starts, you can wear lighter clothes, which are much more comfortable. 

And even if you really don’t like the summer, you can always join Tracy at her wonderful studio, where you don’t really have to deal with the sun and the warm weather, but you can still enjoy a summer themed photoshoot if you like.

Tracy is passionate about creating wall art, legacy albums and personalized keepsakes for her families.  Although she believes digital files are important for archival purposes her mission is to guide you through the process of enjoying your treasures in your home and not on your computer.  That is why she will assist you at your gallery reveal to help you design the perfect products for your home.  Individual products start at 150.00 and the average client invests around 750.00 to 3500.00 on their forever keepsakes.

OMG! Puppies Galore!

Puppies Photography

TEN puppies in the studio!  It was SO much fun to play with these little ones and doing puppies photography in the studio!  We had a great time watching them try to sit and walk.  I LOVE how all their eyes look so blue and they absolutely LOVED to snuggle with each other!  They continuously would dig their little heads into each other so they could snuggle, stay warm and sleep.   I was even able to use some of my newborn session tricks to get them all to sleep at one time. 🙂 . There were lots of hands on deck to help corral them all together and keep them comfy. 

In this litter of puppies there were 4 sets of twins and 5 boys and 5 girls.  A perfect littler!  I love the second picture as the middle puppy yawns and the other one tries to eat it’s siblings ear.  There were so many fun pictures to post it was hard to decide but here is a few of my favorites.  They will all make you smile.

Very similar to newborn sessions

This session was similar to an actual newborn session.  We kept the studio warm, tried to keep quiet, relaxed the puppies by rubbing their little noses right between the eyes and evened “shushed” them a few times with the “shhhhh” noise.  If you have ever had a newborn session with me, you know those are all things I do with the babies to keep them sleepy and relaxed.  

I thought it would be fun this summer to photograph a few other things that I love besides all my babies and toddlers. And, of course puppies was at the top of the list!  I had a great response to my shout out for a litter of puppies and it looks like I may have another set at the end of July.  There might be some other baby animals in store for fun this summer also so make sure to keep your eyes on social media and the blog!

Moments that will be remembered through portraits that are looked at and enjoyed everyday.
