(tampa baby photographer) This sweet bundle of joy has only been in the world for seven days and he’s already melting hearts. I was lucky enough to get together with my close photographer friend and spend the evening with this little bundle of joy. We had an absolute blast with playing with him and although he was hungry at sunset he was the perfect model for the rest of the session. The lighting was perfect and so was the company 🙂
*Disclaimer- baby was safely spotted for all shots and specifically on the swing, the baby had hands on him at all times the rest was done in photoshop. 🙂 (tampa baby photographer)
(clearwater baby photographer) What a super fun session in the studio! These 2 cuties cracked me up. Their personalities just shone through in their images. I hope to see them again for a double smash cake session… can you imagine the awesome fun and MESS 🙂 Can’t wait! It’s the kind of thing a family photographer lives for!
(clearwater baby photographer) Another brand new little guy in the studio! Mom and dad were awesome and brought so many props and fun things to try to use. He was wide awake in the beginning of the session which is always good so that we can capture those beautiful, sparkling newborn eyes. I love this first one… if you look closely at his little lips it looks like he is trying to kiss his mommy…. :::pitter patter::: (clearwater baby photographer)
All of the following were mom’s props… I love to try to work them into a session if the baby lets us and this little champ was more than happy to accomodate!
(clearwater baby photographer) This little bundle of joy was just that “a bundle of joy”! She just completed her second session of the exclusive Tracy Gabbard Photography New Beginnings Plan. She was so much fun! Her big sister didn’t get left out either as we captured some great images of her as well. Check out the eyes on them… beautiful blue and brown, just beautiful! I can never decide which of the 3 sessions in the New Beginnings Plan I love the best as they all offer something so precious and different as each one. The newborn session is of course “one of a kind” as those first couple weeks go by so fast and are such a blur. Those little toes and faces are never that little again (or quiet :)). But the sitting up session is such a blast as they are always sitting up and full of smiles and sometimes they are even crawling (like the little one below). And then there is the one year old session with the smash cake. Now, there is NOTHING like a smash cake session! SUPER FUN and SUPER messy! 🙂 I truly enjoy them all and can’t wait for her next session coming up in the fall. Well, enough chatter…. enjoy these precious smiles! (Clearwater baby photographer)
(clearwater baby photographer) Oh MY goodness! This sweet thing turned on some serious personality for her first birthday session! She was SUCH a blast to have in the studio! I am sorry that this is her last session of the popular TGP New Beginnings Plan but I am sure (at least I hope) I will see her for many more sessions to come as she grows through the next few years. Smash cake birthday session move quickly as we usually have a couple outfits to get through before the smash cake. Every toddler is different…. in their reactions to the cake but must say, she wins the award for loving her cake the most! I think she would have sat infront of her cake all day if we would have let her. The mess did not bother her at all and she kept gobbling pieces of cake and frosting through out the whole time. I was cracking up as she never got tired of it. So, can you imagine all the pictures there are? I tried my best to narrow it down but just couldn’t stop sharing. There are so many more but I had to stop at some point. To mom and dad- I know you will miss this post until later in the week but email me for you gallery when you are ready! 🙂 Enjoy!

(clearwater baby photographer) I have been in first birthday/cake smash heaven lately! SOOOOO many one year olds in the studio lately! And they are all so much fun. This little one was no exception. She hammed it up for in all her birthday glory. (clearwater baby photographer)
(clearwater baby photographer)Oh this little guy was SO funny! I photograph many babies and at this age most of them do love to eat their feet (which I LOVE) but this little one…. he REALLY loved his toes! In fact, we could hardly keep his feet out of his mouth. It was so funny I had to share more than usual amount of pictures. You can just see him looking at those adorable toes and then the urge to get then in his mouth. At one point mom held him back so he couldn’t lean forward to eat them so as you will see…. he just brought them up to his mouth! Don’t worry mom and dad… there are MANY with out toes in the mouth (all though I adore these) and your gallery will be headed your way very soon! (clearwater baby photographer)
Amazing is what this little guy was! He was such a trooper through the whole session! I must say, I love my job, but getting to photograph these precious miracles is definitely at the top of my favorites list!
Oh…. 3 month olds are one of the hardest ages to photograph. They don’t curl up and sleep like newborns but neither do they sit up or have much control over their limbs. They are SOO smiley and happy right up until they see the camera, then they are mesmerized and the smile disappears behind a curious stare. All that being said….. look at this 3 month old! I was told during the session that a very special “Aunty” had been prepping her all week and discussing the importance of looking at the camera and smiling! I think it helped! 🙂 She is absolutely adorable and there are just too many cute ones not to share so here is a bunch!
Okay- so she was a little “drooley” (is that a word?:)), as most babies are but this next image is a great outtake! Yummy mom! How did that taste???? Not that any mommy really cares but it sure does look funny!
Take a look at these two precious siblings! They are only missing their older brother who has red hair… can you believe that! I can’t wait until our next session as I am sure he will be included! Daddy better be teaching him to protect his little sisters as I am sure, with their big blue eyes, daddy might need help beating off those boys knocking on the door! Ha Ha! Thanks for a great session “C” family, enjoy your sneak peak!
What was the most difficult thing about this session? Trying to narrow down the images and choose a just a few to blog! This little guy is the big ONE and he and his precious sister joined me for a fun smash cake date! Some of you might remember him from his newborn session. He has officially competed the New Beginnings Collection and has grown more than enough to prove it! Here is one from his newborn session just for fun and then a few to “oh and ahhh” over from his one year old session! Enjoy mom and dad…I am glad it is not me choosing from this gallery! 🙂
