Clearwater Newborn Photographer

What can I say… I was so honored to photograph this little guy and he will hold a special place in my heart forever. MANY years ago when I was 18 I started working at a preschool as a one year old teacher.  The first little face I saw was quite possibly the cutest little girl I had ever seen in a yellow tutu. Oh how she captured my heart!  I became friends with the little girls mom and stayed close to the little girl throughout the years.  Our families shared many memories as the years went on, weddings, celebrations, birthdays, etc… Those memories hold a special place in heart and when the little girls mom passed away many years later I was heartbroken not only for the loss in my life but for the little girl as well.  But NOW, the little girl in the yellow tutu has her own new baby and I was honored to capture his first few days of birth for her.  He was truly so precious and I know his grandma is looking down from above with the most love in her heart keeping watch over him and his mommy.

I love when clients can incorporate special “props” into their sessions.  Mom made this blanket (below)…. how awesome is that?

I never know what to expect when walking into a session.  So, predicting what a session with triplets was impossible since I have never photographed triplets before!  I must say it was MY PLEASURE!  These babies were amazing!  They were 8 weeks (which any photographer will tell you starts the beginning of the hardest age to photograph) and they were awesome!  Yes, there were tears, breaks and heat but the babies were such troopers.  They have been down a long road since the beginning of their little lives but they are happy and healthy…. little miracles!  I am so happy to give mom, dad and family some quick sneak peaks here….

Amazing….. (tampa, clearwater, newborn, 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!

Preciousness! (tampa, clearwater newborn photographer)

Okay~I had the hardest time narrowing down these images for a blog post but considering what happened on our first try at the session I am adding in a few extras for mom and dad!  What happened you asked? 🙂  Well, while holding this precious baby I reached into my car and dislocated my shoulder (old injury)!  I had not even taken any pictures yet!  I did however, keep the baby safe in my other arm! The worst part… I could not get my shoulder “back in” so I had to drive myself to the ER for a little help!  Yes, embarrassing!  I guess it will be a good story for her baby book!  We did get in a VERY successful rescheduled session as you will see and this family is participating in the TGP New Beginnings Plan so I will be lucky enough to photograph her several more times throughout the her first year!  I already can’t wait to see her next time!
