(tampa childrens photographer) Oh my goodness…. I love this little guy but I am not sure how much he loves me! 🙂 I have been photographing him and his family for several years now and I look forward to our sessions each time. His siblings are just as precious but he just has SO many other things to do other than take pictures (like most little boys his age) with me. He loves outdoors and the freedom it brings so hanging with me is a short lived occurrence and I better snap that shutter quick or he is GONE! 🙂 What I love is that I get so many fun expressions from him, he just lets it all out, no holding back his feelings. As I edited this summer session I was inspired to create this collage of just him. This session with his family is one I will always remember because as the kids neared the end of the session we all went out on the golf course and the kids took out their nets to catch fish in the ponds. Well, Michael and I went off on our own for a little bit and just as the sun was setting he caught his first fish! It was so exciting for both of us! Here are few from our excursion! Hope you enjoy the fun this little guy brings to our sessions…. (Tampa childrens photographer)
(tampa childrens photographer) I can’t believe one of my favorite little girls is already 5 and headed to Kindergarden! She has been with me since I started this amazing journey, being one of my first sessions way back when! She is always so much fun and gets easier every year! Her images have been (and still are) on the web site and they have “graced” the blog and facebook many times! Her mom swears she only “works it” for me but I find it hard to believe that adorable face isn’t cute in every picture taken! I heart her! (Tampa childrens photographer)
(tampa childrens photographer) Ohhhhhh…. I am SO glad I do not have to choose images from this session! This little guy was so awesome I could have spent the whole day with him. I love smash cake sessions and this one was certainly NO exception. As long as the birthday child is fine with getting a little messy, the images are just priceless and completely IMPOSSIBLE to narrow down to a reasonable number for mom and dad. There are so many more great images it was hard to choose for sharing. His first birthday party is coming soon so I wanted to get few up for his family to share. Happy Birthday to a special little guy! (tampa childrens photographer)
I’ve been photographing this little on since she was a baby and she “graces” the galleries on the TGP website frequently! Infact, there are usually so many great ones from her session I just switch them out now and then when I update the galleries. I LOVE getting to see her every year and watching her grow. She is hilarious and kept me chuckling the whole session. We called our session an adventure and walked the streets of downtown Dunedin until she started to throw her candy at me! Ha! I think at that point she was done but what a trooper and she was a blast! We were lucky enough to have that perfect weather that has been blessing the Tampa area right now and we found some great spots for some fun pictures. Being a tampa and surrounding areas childrens photographer is a blessing and I am so lucky to have clients that trust me to create priceless images for them. I can’t wait for next year (or sooner) :)!
I love being a Tampa children photographer and I am so sad that this precious little girl is graduating from the New Beginnings Collection! It has been a great year watching her grow into the little toddler that she has become. We celebrated her birthday in first class style with cake and balloons. She was so fascinated with the balloons that I think I she must be looking up in half of the images! She was less than interested in her cake but she played in it long enough for some really fun pictures. I will miss this Tampa family but I am sure I will see them in the near future for some more fun sessions.
Mini Session update- The date for the Sneak Peak of Santa mini session has changed to November 13th. There are still some openings. More information here…. Also there are a few openings left for Holiday at the Park mini’s.
Now for the fun stuff….
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….
This was a great session in a small downtown area! This “little man” has been modeling for years and has even been in a national commercial (you can see why!)! Mom needed a few updated head shots and wanted some “mom and son” pictures as it is SO rare for moms to actually be in the pictures (I totally get that one!). I love the setting in these and the night was so beautiful if it wasn’t for the sunlight getting low I could have kept this session going for a long time! Its so easy to work with older children and adults! 🙂 I forget that sometimes! Enjoy your sneak peak mom and your gallery will be there by the end of the week!
Last but not least…. we played a little trick. I counted to three and mom splashed him…. he was a little surprised to say the least! 🙂
I love it when clients bring in something special from home to use as a prop in some of the images. This family brought in a blanket that great grandma made. How special is that? These types of portraits always make such special portraits for the family also. Here is a little preview for mom and grandma…. gallery coming soon girls! 🙂
This last one is my favorite… remember the days when your “baby(ies)” were really babies and they used to just “maul” your face when giving you kisses? Look how adorable! I miss those big open mouth kisses…. priceless!
**Just as a side note… I filled two more Sneak Peak Of Santa Mini sessions times today, only a few left! It is such a FUN session for families I can’t wait! Call or email soon if you are interested! If you check the blog post below there is a little bit more info on it.
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!
