Today’s Newborn Photography Session Will Steal Your Heart

This loving couple and the new most loved member of the family came into Tracy’s Studio for a special Newborn Photography session.

This time, Tracy decided to take a very clean, fresh approach and the result is very heartwarming.

This picture intends to capture the beauty of the smallest feet in the family, it is a very special moment in their lives.

It was such a fun moment when Tracy wrapped him up with this soft cloth. You can see that little smile. Tracy always makes sure to  handle all babies with care and keep the environment very safe for everyone.

And last but not least, a very romantic picture of the new family. More photo sessions are yet to come and tell a new story.

Tracy’s passion for children and families dates way back before her photography career took off. Tracy started working in a preschool at age 18 while working on her degree in Elementary Education.

After directing and owning her own preschool for more than 10 years, she found herself still wanting to continue to work with pre-school age children. As she began to capture the precious beginnings   of her newborn son, she quickly fell in love with photography. Nearly 12 years later, her passion as continued to grow in learning and perfecting her craft of Newborn and Family portrait photography.

Today We Bring You A Colorful Family Story.

 

The first year has been the cutest photography session for this family.

Loving his full head of hair and creamy baby skin. Tracy chose warm colors that bring out his perfect skin tone. 

 

Such a detailed close up, showing his tiny feet and the resting position on a peaceful moment. Tracy has an special ability to calm down and keep babies in a great mood during the sessions. It takes a mother and a children oriented person to understand and manage such young tiny humans.

In this picture, Tracy wanted to capture the beauty in the difference of skin colors, and how tiny the feet are. It is one of the cutest parts of the body when they are so young, because you can feel how fragile and young they are.

We often show a close up of the mother and the baby, but this time we want to make sure you experience a close up with the father. Their bond is extraordinary. You can almost feel how smooth the baby skin is just by looking at the photograph.

We know its just early August, but we want to sneak a peak for the amazing Holiday Special Photo Sessions that are coming up these year. Stick around to check out more in the next few months.

 

Holiday Sessions are very limited and they are usually sold out really fast, don’t miss your chance once the time comes, contact Tracy for more information about this, specially is you are waiting for that special new member to arrive to the family this Christmas!

5 Reasons To Invest on Newborn Photography Today!

Becoming a parent is a blessing and a great time to celebrate life. One of the biggest reasons to invest in Newborn Photography is to take into consideration the fact that time goes by very fast and babies grow and change every day, so fast that we don’t even notice, you blink once or twice, and they are bigger, taller and you are left out wishing you had a better memory for the rest of your life.

1. The time that won’t come back:

Sure, you can take pictures with your phone or tablet, but no quality can be compared to the professional studio high-end quality photography that we can offer at our studio.

2. The value of an unforgettable memory that you can touch and feel.

One thing that a professional photo session can bring, is that incredible and perfect finish that reflects love and emotions captivated in one photograph. You will end up with a collection of incredibly beautiful pictures of your child and you can choose to hang them on the wall with beautiful frames, have a book with a collection of them, and many other physical forms.

3. Professional, stress-free delivery.


Especially for the mother, the first weeks after becoming a mom can be very tough on the mother, and dealing with stress, developing a new routine and life in general, can be exhausting. At the same time, your baby is still growing and changing as you go. Having a professional taking care of the memories is just stress-free and an overall warming experience.

4. Creativity


The beauty of Newborn Photography remains in the ability to capture the expressions of the baby and at the same time, mixing it with a theme or creative ideas. Not too long ago, Tracy had a beautiful baby whose middle name is Rose and of course, some beautiful pink roses were the best props for the pictures. There are simply countless ideas to make the photos unique and special.

5. Safety


It takes a mother to know how to treat a baby or children in general. Tracy is a mother of two, and it’s her passion to interact with the little ones. She takes care of them and makes sure the experience is free of stress for the baby, children as well as the parents involved. It is truly a unique experience.

Close Ups by TGP – Look At Those Eyes!

Grabbed some of my favorites!

Let’s talk about close ups!  At each photography session I always try to do a few close ups .  I love the way they capture the details of the eyes and for the little guys their little teeth (or lack of :)) It’s fun to capture silly faces and serious ones as well.  They don’t always have to be smiling to make an impact and evoke emotion.  Sometimes non smiling photographs end up being my favorites.  I love them for babies, kids and older children.  I reached back several years to grab some of my favorites!  You may have seen some of these before but a few of these kiddos are 5 and 6 years old already!  Time flies!  Do you see your little one (or older one :)) in these photos picked by me from the collection of Tracy Gabbard Photography Albums?

Baby's First Year Photo Album tracygabbardphotography.com

Baby’s First Year Photo Album – NBP

First Year Photo Album – Part of New Beginnings Plan

Look at all the gorgeous baby’s first year photo albums going out next week!  These are part of the New Beginnings Plan (NBP) of Tracy Gabbard Photography (TGP). These albums are amazing keepsakes that will be passed down for many generations!

Can you imagine having one of these to look at of your grandparent or great grandparent? What a lifetime keepsake! Digital images are wonderful for preserving and archiving but there is NOTHING like a quality printed print, wall display or album that you can touch, see everyday and/or share with loved ones. Sitting down on the couch with your child looking through an album is an experience that uses all the senses and that is priceless.

Flipping through some digital files on a computer is different. There is not an experience associated with that. Hence the families who have their baby’s first year photo albums are so lucky! They will all sit on the couch one day and share this with their children! 

Please visit TGP’s New Beginnings Plan (NBP) which includes Newborn Session, Sitting up Session, First Birthday Session and this lovely photo album. TGP will hand pick photos from each session for your baby’s first year album to create his/her 1st year story.  You can see some video samples by clicking on albums

If you have any question about the album, or want to join NBP, click on Contact Tracy to send your query or message.

One of Tracy’s Favorite Newborn Poses

One of my favorite newborn poses!

The tiny details of a newborn are priceless. I love to “freeze them in time” for mommy and daddy at each session.  Although there are lots of different ways to show off those little “parts” this is one of my favorite newborn poses.  I love how the tiny fingers are showcased but also those sweet cheeks, precious lips and even the itty bitty eyelashes. There is nothing more amazing than these little miracles!
