(clearwater children’s photographer) This family has been waiting for quite a long time as I fit their session right in the middle of the busy season and they knew it would be awhile before I could get to their birthday session. The smallest princess in these pictures was part of the TGP New Beginnings Plan and officially graduated with this session. It was so much fun to watch her grow throughout the year and she and her sister loved to “ham it up” for me at each session. Big sister turned 4 not to long before this session so it was only appropriate that she get in on some of the cake smashing fun! (clearwater children’s photographer)
(clearwater childrens photographer) Another graduation New Beginnings Plan member! 🙁 This little guy has been such a blessing and so much fun to watch grow throughout the year. His personality has helped make his sessions amazing. I have the hardest time narrowing down his images for a blog post and I always have a hard time with those smash cake sessions. The images from those are so fun and I always want to show them all. So, I did my best to make this a peak at his session but I think it’s more like a full view! Ha!

I was lucky enough to be able to photograph one of my favorite subjects again! She is a “blog post” regular… Enjoy! 🙂
Meet “Little Miss Thang” 🙂 She was so much fun to chase around at her house, which is, by the way, on the registry of historic homes in a local city! We played outside and inside and captured some great images for her two year old session. Enjoy mom and dad…. gallery is “in the works”!
This little guy was on the move and even though mom thought he was less than cooperative (getting pictures taken is not most two year olds favorite thing to do, until they visit TGP of course :)) the pictures turned out great! Here are just a few of the many favorites! If you are a TGP Facebook fan you already got a sneak peak with some different images but here are a few more for mom and dad before they get their gallery!
This next one is one of my VERY favorite images and I have already uploaded it to the home page of the TGP web site so that is cycles in the images when you log on! LOVE it! 🙂
Silliness was just how these kids were! They were full of energy and happiness (as you can tell) for the whole session. I was honored when this mom called from New York and asked if I could fit her in while they were here on vacation during Thanksgiving. Thankfully they came back down for the Christmas because our session was rained out for the first scheduling! 🙁 Anyway, these kids were a blast and kept me hopping the whole time I was there. Their images completely reflect the session and their little personalities, fun, candid and energetic! I love all of the images, it was so hard to choose which ones to post….
Ohhhh blog…. so neglected! Finally settling down form the holiday rush. I am working on a “recap” holiday blog post that will hopefully come this week! But here is a session I have been wanting to share for a couple weeks and just haven’t been able to get time to do it! I love when I get the opportunity to photograph my friends children! This little one was one of my first babies and she is now a busy two year old! She reminds me so much of my daughter with the curls and the *attitude*! I love being able to capture these images of her for her family!
This has to be one of the best editing sessions… I cracked up almost the whole time I was editing these! See that first image, how the little girl is a little blurry… well that is EXACTLY how this session was…. “on them move” she was a big blur in my camera lens but wow…. what a doll baby! I have to say, it was not the best time for her as it was the afternoon, right at nap time but these two were hilarious! We pulled out all the stops to get them together (hence the fish crackers all over the floor :)) and I think you can tell they had a little fun together and dont worry mom, all those crackers can be edited away if need be :)! There are some beautiful images also but there is no way to post them all so here is a great preview for mom and family….
These kids are great! I love getting see repeat clients each year and being able to watch them grow and change. I usually try to stay away from playgrounds for photoshoots because there are always so many kids playing around it can make it difficult to isolate the family/child that is being photographed. BUT going against my good judgment I found this beautiful park/playground that is very near this families home and I just couldn’t resist it. I figured Sunday morning… no one will be there… HA! Jokes on me! It was actually very crowded but we worked around it and got some great results! I think it was worth it! Thanks for a great session “P” family!

Last but not least I had to share this one… I always like images where the family is looking up at me so I asked the kids to lay down and look up at me… they were so funny! They just couldn’t do it because it was so bright, even though we were in the shade! So I said, “close your eyes and look at me on three, One….two…..THREE”! Oh well, it was a good try!
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!
These two were so great! Their pictures came out awesome (as you will see) and were very hard to edit down! Look how adorable!
So when working with children you have to have FUN! Here they are playing a little game… check out the second image… certainly not technically correct as they are all over the light zone but how funny is it!
