The First Year Trending Cake Smash Photography

This trend has become a tradition now, Cake Smash Photography is a must! 

We teach our kids not to play with food, but for only ONE day, this rule is meant to be broken. During the First Year, babies are growing at the speed of light. And to finish with style, booking a fun Cake Smash Photography Session is the best idea.

Tracy Gabbard is one of the top Professional Photographers in the Tampa Bay area. She offers these creative and colorful Photography Sessions to celebrate the Baby’s First Birthday.

Today we brought you a compilation of the sweetest (literally) photographs captured in Tracy’s Studio. Balloons and colorful outfits are the best props to contrast the white background and natural lighting at her Studio in Clearwater, Fl.

For the Cake Smash Photography Sessions, parents pick the colors to use. Usually going as blue for boys and pink for girls, but some other great options go from blue to purple and orange.

Besides being colorful and fun, it’s a great way to capture their smile. Most babies enjoy smashing the cake and eating it during the Cake Smashing Photography Session, babies love sweets and treats, so this themed session is definitely the most fun for them!

These Photography Sessions are the complete contrast of the usual sessions that Tracy offers. And this is because it’s a very special occasion, especially when it is their first time. It brings a beautiful, organic chaos of sweet cake! It’s messy but fun and memorable.

As you can see, it’s so easy to capture their happy faces, all covered up with cake and icing. It’s almost therapeutic! The babies get to experience a time when they are free to play with their food and have fun with it!

To this day, we have not found a baby resisting the temptation of eating that cake!

7 Puppies Invade One Of The Top Best Tampa Photographers!

Tracy is a Tampa Photographer that focus her majority of her work on Babies, Newborns and Families but today was an extra busy day at the studio! 6 beautiful Golden Retriever Puppies are much like toddlers… Absolutely adorable but always on the move! All of them are fluffy and playful and they love everything! It was soooo much fun to have this special photo session with all of them! The only time they were all together in one place was at the very end of the session when they were totally exhausted from all the play time and they all fell asleep. Again, just like a toddler! LOL!

They all have different personalities it was very fun to admire their behavior, who was curious, more laid back, calm, and active. 

Take a look at this special session, these adorable puppies were only 6 weeks old and they already have a new home. We just want to brighten your day, scroll down to see more! There puppies are incredibly adorable, it’s a guaranteed “awww” for everyone. We even got the mother to be present and it was too cute. 

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.

As a Professional Tampa Photographer, Tracy’s main goal is getting to know her all about her clients and helping make their photography vision a reality.

These sessions have been designed to be interactive and to capture sweet moments between mom’s and children. Moments that will be remembered through portraits that are looked at and enjoyed everyday.

These captured moments are meant to be professionally printed and proudly displayed for enjoyment. They are meant to make your heart “pitter patter” each time you walk by and look at them. They are to create keepsakes that will be passed down to children and grandchildren.They are special, they are priceless. They are for all ages from babies to grandma’s but they are for mom’s and children only. The goal is for all products ordered to be back in time for Mothers Day.Please don’t let this opportunity pass you by. If your babies are little you know how fast time goes and if your “babies” are big, you understand that even more!

Mothers Day Photo Session

Here’s how they work…

You will choose 2 dates.  One for the session itself (i.e. Saturday, March 24th) and the other one for your selection/viewing appt (there will not be any on line galleries).  At that selection/viewing appointment you will see all of your images from the session and you will order your products at that time as well.  You will be able to see all of the products offered at your actual session so you will have a good idea of what you would like from the session at your appt.  I will be there to guide you through the process and help you select the products that are right for you.  Click on Product Guide to view details.  There will be a few other products offered but these will be exclusive just for the Mothers Day Sessions.

Leslie!  I have been getting my hair done by Leslie for many years now.  I don’t know why it has taken me so long to tell everyone about her.  Her salon is awesome and she has the best web site  I mean really what hair stylist has their own web site.  There are few coupons on it under “specials” .  Anyway, she is AWESOME with color and styling and is always on the “cutting edge” (like that:)) of all the new styles, colors and products!  Make an appointment and tell her I sent you!

Late Night Blogging! (Tampa, Clearwater family and children’s photographer)

I don’t usually blog these Sneak Peak of Santa sessions because they are usually a surprise for the families Christmas cards.  But this mom said it was fine so I wanted to make sure to do that for her! This Sneak Peak of Santa was an add on to a regular family session.  I am still scheduling for the mini session’s on November 14th so if you are interested or know someone who might be send them my way!




Mini Session Update! (tampa, clearwater family photographer)

Sneak Peak of Santa mini session update!  I had 2 families change from a the Sneak Peak of Santa mini session to full family sessions.  That opened up a couple of spots for it!  If you are interested or know a family that might be please let them send them my way.  These are so much fun and are really a great deal for everything you get.  Take a quick look at the details and if you need more call or email.  I don’t expect the openings to stay open long! There is also a sample card (each session gets its own custom created card) and a few images from previous sessions to see for an idea of what Sneak Peak of Santa is!  It really is one of a kind and as far as I know Tracy Gabbard Photography is the only local photographer doing it!

Sneak Peak of Santa Questions (tampa clearwater family photographer)

I have had a few questions about the Sneak Peak of Santa mini sessions.  So, I thought I would go ahead and answer them here for everyone in case others had questions also.  Sneak Peak of Santa is GREAT for families with young children (and fun for older ones also).  It accomplishes many things all in one quick 30 minutes or so.  Basically this session works best if Santa is mom, dad or someone familiar to the child.  The Santa suit is provided but we never really have to put the full beard on.  If we do any head shots of Santa it is usually the back of Santa which only requires hat and hair.  Remember, it is a SNEAK PEAK of Santa!  This is great for many reasons.  First, young children are often scared of Santa and will not usually interact with him at all.  Second, children interact so much more naturally with their parents or a familiar person.  This helps create priceless images!  It is a great way to get Santa pictures and these images not only make great holiday portraits but are perfect for fun holiday cards.  If you do not have anyone that can or will put on the Santa suit we can provide someone for you if you need it.  It works for multiple children and just one.  Babies are precious in these images also.  Here are just a couple of last years and a sample custom created card (front and back) that was ordered.  If you have any other questions please call.  Also- if you know a family that you think would make a great fit for this type of session send them my way.  This is a ONE of a kind session that I have not seen done anywhere else in this area (until another photographer steels it :))!  Just a reminder these mini sessions will only be held on Saturday, November 14th so space in limited.  It seems far away but it comes up so quickly!

First Post on new blog! So excited! (Tampa, clearwater family photographer)

I am so excited about my new web site and blog! Bigger, better pictures… more options…more FUN!  Make sure you go check out the web site!  There are new pictures (maybe you will see someone you know or love :)), bigger pictures, and awesome “boutique” with all kinds of new products!  Don’t forget holiday shopping is coming up!   Shopping… that brings me to Holiday sessions!  I have been saving this post for the “new blog” although it should have been posted a long time ago but I just couldn’t bring myself to post it on the old one with the old “style”.  Yes, it is only August (almost September :)) and I am already talking Holiday Sessions! I will be having two sets of mini sessions this year.  “Pictures in the Park” and the annual “Sneak Peak of Santa” mini sessions.  “Sneak Peak of Santa” has availability for 10 sessions that day and 2 are already scheduled, leaving only 8 and I haven’t even advertised yet!  Call the studio for more details on each session.   If you are interested in regular family sessions for holiday or just because 🙂 make sure to call soon as dates are filling quickly.  Several weeks in September and October are already fully scheduled and there are limited dates available through out other weeks.  Orders for products (ie; leather products, jewelry, etc…) must be in by November 7th to guarantee holiday delivery.
