Newborn Photography – Worth the wait

Newborn Photography

This little guy decided to make his way into the world a little earlier than expected and decided to have a nice hospital stay!  BUT he was soooooo worth the wait! His little rolls are so yummy and those lips….. I loved each moment at this early newborn photography session. Early Newborn Photography by TGP

I love all his hair!  You never know how long newborn hair will stay but I was so happy he had so much for his photo session!  Especially since we scheduled his session much later than I normally schedule newborn sessions. 

Newborn Session when?

Newborn sessions are usually scheduled between 7 and 14 days after birth but this precious baby was several weeks old before he was able to come in to the studio for his session!

Big Sister at his Photo Session

His big sister had a special dolly that she brought with her to every session (and still does) so this special giraffe will be what he brings to every session. I can not wait to see how he grows with this special toy by his side!

He is so loved by his family!  His big sister will be the best sister!  I can already tell how much she loves him! She was such a big helper at his session and always ready to take pictures with her special new baby!

This newborn was such a great sleeper but I loved that he gave me just enough awake time to capture his eyes! He was so comfy all wrapped up and warm and was staring right at me!

I am always excited when a baby gives me lots of good sleep during their session but also a little bit of awake time so that I can capture them awake.  Awake newborn images are some of my favorites!

If you would like to schedule a complimentary consultation for a newborn session I would love to hear from you! Contact the studio at (727) 491-6476 or fill out the contact form.   We take a limited number of newborn sessions per month, it is really never to early to get your scheduled!

5 great tips for parents with twins!

These beautiful twins we bring you today are just the cutest duo in the studio. They are identical, it’s like someone copied and pasted one of them into the other!

Having twins is a magical experience and can also be very demanding and a stressful journey the first years, but it’s also rewarding, just like any other pregnancy. Check out these beautiful photos from Tracy Gabbard’s Photography Studio below.

  1. Definitely Sync Their Schedules

Getting your twins on the same eating and sleeping schedule is essential. Otherwise it will just be double work for you.

  1. Don’t Separate Older Twin Babies

When your twins are sleeping through the night, you might want you to put them in separate rooms, so they won’t wake each other up. But that will only teach them to rely on total silence to stay asleep. They need to learn to sleep through everything, even their own crying.

  1. Meet Other Twin Parents

There are multiple social groups that you can find around you and it could be helpful. Visit the National Organization of Mothers of Twins Clubs.

  1. Don’t Double Up on Absolutely Everything

Of course, you will need two car seats, cribs and other essentials, but having twin babies does not mean that you must buy everything twice, mix it up a little bit too! They probably have different personalities and like different toys.

  1. Buy Your Baby Essentials Online

Twin babies go through diapers, wipes and other everyday items at the speed of light. To help with your everyday life, you could use great online stores like Amazon, Ebay and others that will deliver everything to your doorstep. And that’s a huge advantage!

Newborn Photography is unique in a way, that cannot be replaced by anything else. You can always have a Family photo session, or a Maternity photo session, but the magic of the Newborn photo sessions resides in that small window of time when the baby is its tiniest size.

It’s a time that parents and family want to remember forever.

Tracy Gabbard has a special love for the little ones,  they are so soft and fuzzy, they must be treated with care. There are special safety procedures that not all photographers are aware of, but she knows all of them. Your baby will be  in the best hands.

She loves having fun at the studio, moving them into heartwarming poses and even into funny and creative ones with props and a variety of furniture and even costumes.

Sometimes families have special stories to share with Tracy and she helps them portray them into the photography session so that later in life, they can tell a story. Even when she uses some soft pieces of cloths with different textures, the newborns are so tiny, you can see the details in the fabric and it’s just captivating.

Newborns are her absolute favorite little ones to work with and she can create an artistic canvas with different objects and props.

Everyday, couples who are expecting the arrival of the new member of the family, come to her with creative ideas for their first photo session.

They often do what we call the First Year Plan, and it’s dedicated to capture the growth process of the newborn from the very first days of being born to his/her first steps.

The first days, it is indispensable to photograph the cutest closeups of the baby’s hands and feet, they are at the tiniest size they will ever be and it’s a valuable memory you want to keep forever. Slowly progressing from them having their eyes closed to finally being able to see their eyes and their expression.

It is truly an amazing journey, not to mention how some babies start crawling all the way to sitting up and taking their first steps on camera. It’s a transition that every parent wants to have to be able to keep forever. It’s such a priceless moment in life. At the end of the year, the baby’s personality starts to flourish and Tracy makes sure to capture that as well.
