Expressions Captured In Every Photo Session + The Cutest Photos

Today we have a special article and it’s totally focused on the beauty of expressions. Babies can be very expressive and their personalities show through every picture. Tracy is a photographer in the Tampa Bay area and she is passionate about the little ones and their families. 

We gathered a few photos for you to enjoy and you will see how much a photograph can express. All babies are different and unique in their own way, some are very quiet and peaceful, others are more active and energetic, others are playful and curious and all of them are interesting and amazing to work with.

In the studio, Tracy and the families get together to create a plan for every session and discuss what they would love to see in the final result. She provides every family with high end products and featured prints that will keep the memories alive and can be hanged on the walls or kept as cherished photo albums. 

Take a look at every picture and if you look close enough, you will spot every different expression and you can almost feel and hear their moods. These are very valuable memories and definitely a fun time in the studio.

Tracy is passionate about creating wall art, legacy albums and personalized keepsakes for her families.  Although she believes digital files are important for archival purposes her mission is to guide you through the process of enjoying your treasures in your home and not on your computer.  That is why she will assist you at your gallery reveal to help you design the perfect products for your home.

Please contact Tracy to start planning your investment in photography and an ideal session with her.

3 Caring Tips For Your Baby’s Feet Plus The Cutest Tiny Feet Close Ups!

As humans, one of our most important assets in life are our feet. We start from the beginning, crawling and sitting up until we are able to start walking and taking steps in life. And most of us are lucky to have two legs and two feet. Today we are grateful for that and we want to show you how beautiful these close ups can be and on top of that, some tips to keep your baby’s feet healthy!

According to the American Pediatric Medical Association (APMA), by the time we reach 65, she will have walked more than 100,000 miles. That’s why it’s important to take your baby’s feet care as a priority. Start them off on the right foot (literally) by taking proper care of their little feet and understanding the possible problems that can affect them.

Here are some tips to take proper care of their beautiful tiny feet from the beginning.

  1. Your baby’s new feet may be blue, wrinkled, and peeling like much of the rest of his body after nine months in a cocoon of protective fluid. Be assured, however, that his feet will recover the normal tone and fill out as soon as he gets warm.
  2. Before they take their first steps, babies need to develop proper strength in their legs to carry their own body weight, as well as the confidence to stand on their own two feet. While many parents look to the first birthday as the target date for this major milestone, the average age when children begin walking closer to 12 to 15 months.
  3. It can be very difficult to resist the temptation to put cute little shoes on your baby’s feet, but they can be an obstruction to growing feet properly. Shoes that are too restrictive don’t allow for normal toe and foot motion.

And of course, Tracy will be more than happy to invite you to her Studio in the Tampa Bay area for beautiful sessions where you will be able to capture your child’s feet while they are still tiny and fuzzy.

Time To Sit Up! These Babies Will Melt Your Heart

Babies are capable of doing many things on their own, like learning to sit up. When your baby sits up depends a lot on your baby and how their motor skills are progressing. Scroll down for your daily dose of cuteness overload!

Ready…

Set….

Sit Up! + Best Friend, Of Course

His dog is absolutely proud, look at those smiley faces. Absolutely adorable. When a baby can hold their head up and roll from front to back, sitting is definitely on the horizon. However, some babies get the crawling (army crawl) bug before the sitting bug. 

Each baby is different, but typically babies learn to sit up between 4 and 8 months, some babies take as long as 9 months to fully get it or more. It sometimes seems like your baby will never stop needing an arm to hold themselves up and then all of a sudden they are sitting up perfectly!

Look, mom! No hands!

Watching a baby figure out sitting up is wonderful to watch. Because every baby is different, there is no standard position a baby uses to sit up. 

And by the way, that’s enough sitting up for the day, he is now busy playing with his favorite toys. Happy Friday!
