Tampa Family Photographer

OMG!  These 2 are hilarious! As a Tampa family Photographer I have been SO lucky to photograph them since the they were both newborns.  I don’t think we have missed even one year.  They are both crazy, funny and SO much fun!  After 8 years of following them through their little lives I have literally watched them grow up before my eyes.  It is fun to find new places to have sessions… we have done local parks, clearwater beaches, Tampa universities, the TGP studio and now downtown Tampa.  We just did a little story on their session from last year here.… My heart is full when I get to spend time with them and mom gets a break since I take them off on my own.  Their personalities crack me up and I LOVE that they know me and are comfortable with me.  There is always lots of laughing and giggles throughout the time we spend together and you can see how fun they are in this picture as he reacts to a silly secret his sister told him!  


During the session, unprompted by me, big sister asked me to take a pretty picture of the flowers she picked…. how perfectly girl like and sweet… 

Now for the funny part….. a little later in the session, Mr “C” asked me to take a picture of….

yes…. the ANT crawling on his arm! LOL!  TOTAL girl and boy representation there!  I am fairly sure that the picture of this ant will NOT be a large portrait above the fireplace BUT I bet it makes it into and album page because it is SOOO him and shows exactly what both of these awesome kids are like at this age!  And after all, isn’t that what portrait sessions are all about?  

I am so lucky! (tampa baby photographer)

(tampa baby photographer) How could I ask for anything better than being able to spend time with these little ones.  They are precious, so innocent and so tiny.  Definitely one of the best parts of my job!  This newest member of the TGP New Beginnings Plan was an absolute dream!  Even with his big brother (who is by no means big… under 2 himself) who was very hesitant to be to close to him,  this little guy was in sleepy dreamland.    Both of these children are beautiful…. mommy and daddy make beautiful babies!  

I often joke with my clients that for me, capturing, with photography, that rare newborn smile is SO hard.  I swear, those smiles always happen when the camera is NOT close to me and I rarely get to capture them on the camera.  This precious bundle of joy gave me MANY smiles though and I did capture some.  I am not sharing here because I know birth announcements are yet to go out and I am sure mom and dad want some surprises for that.  Here are just a few of this amazing session with many surprises left for the full gallery!

Double cuteness (clearwater 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!

So blessed (tampa newborn photographer)

(tampa newborn photographer)  Ahhhhhh… I really wish I could share all the images in this families gallery.  They are beyond beautiful.  This darling little baby girl was so amazing for her session and I have a feeling she will continue to amaze her family everyday for many years to come.  I feel so blessed to be chosen to capture her first year for her family and to watch her grow this year as her family has chosen to participate in the TGP New Beginnings Plan.  I seriously can not wait to see her at each of her sessions and hope maybe mommy will plan a couple extra in there so that I can see her a little bit more 🙂  Hint, hint, mommy!

TGP Sitting Up Session from New Beginnings Plan (tampa baby photographer)

(tampa newborn baby photographer)  Oh what fun this busy little guy was!  When doing family photography, I can never decide which of the 3 sessions from the New Beginnings Plan is my favorite.  I of course love those newborns and at the “sitting up” sessions the babies are usually so happy. Then there is the forever popular smash cake sessions which are hilarious!  Instead of the traditional 6 month session I recommend doing a “sitting up session” when the babies are usually 7-8 months and you can really capture that next stage from the itty bitty baby they were just a few short months ago.  It is a really fun session.  Enjoy a sneak peak of this happy little guy!
