We turned Tracy’s Studio into a miniature Christmas pop for this sweet boy. It was such a fun Holiday Photography Session!
He is so small he fits this beautiful basket perfectly. Holiday Props can get very creative. Here, the predominant color is red and it really grabs everyone’s attention. It almost looks like a tiny Santa outfit with the buttons. We can safely say that this little boy is the actual Christmas gift!

This family got together in the studio to celebrate life and take memorable photographs of the entire family.
The little ones dressed up with their favorite fantastic characters. A cute aquamarine mermaid dress that fits her perfectly, while her brother is loving his “Cars” costume.
They are all celebrating their youngest daughter’s first birthday. They dressed her up all in red, to represent love and passion and included one balloon to represent her age.
Tracy loves Family Photography because it allows to bring together the family in the studio. This time they also adventured at the outdoors in the Tampa Bay area, for a very fresh vibe.
Also, featuring red attires, they set a Picnic scenario to capture the family in this very important milestone. These closeups with mom and dad are too cute. You can see her smiling every time they hold her.
This Family Photography session was filled with a lot of emotions, the youngest little one went through a whole lot of emotions during the session, but to show how much she loves mom and dad, she smiles the most in the photos where they are together.
It was definitely a fun session. Themed Family Photography sessions are always filled with personality, laughter and creativity. Halloween is a great time for this type of sessions, are a great idea to capture this time of the year and a great memory to look back to.

This time, we have one of the happiest families at the studio!
Tracy Gabbard and her photography studio in the Tampa Bay area bring you this super cute set from a very special Sitting Up session with this lovely family.
Mom, Dad, and older and younger brother are together in the studio and it was such a fun time. Tracy is one of the best photographers in the area for Family Photography and she offers a variety of services such as Newborn photography, Maternity photography and many more.
Our little one is captivating us with his beautiful smile on every photograph. We have the classic white charged canvas, expressing a soft, clean photograph that can make any room look wonderful with any of Tracy’s featured prints on floating or framed canvases.
Check out these classic and lovely family pictures where you can see them smiling and happy, it’s a picture that reflects one of those moments in life when everything aligns for the perfect photo!
And of course, older and younger brother with matching clothes, they look too cute! Tracy always makes sure to match and compliment the colors in the canvases, the use of gray here is important because it makes their skin tone stand out and the floor gets lost in the background, creating a very clean canvas.
One of the favorite pictures here, featuring the mother and younger brother, you can see her swinging and holding him right at the moment when he looks at the camera. The expression in his eyes denotes how happy he is, and you can feel how strong the love is.
And of course, we love to share all these adventures in the studio and the journey when babies are learning to sit up, one of the first achievements in any baby’s life.
The studio got filled up with cuteness to the very top when this little girl and her loving parents contacted Tracy Gabbard for a very heartwarming Newborn photo session.
They are a lovely couple who are very in love with their new daughter and decided that it was the best time to capture this beautiful time in their lives.
We gathered some of the photos from this session so you better be prepared to have your heart melted in 3…2…1!
The little girl was surrounded by a soft, pastel pink color and some warm tones to complement the canvas and her skin tone, it makes her skin look peachy and soft.
In this classic pose you can compare the fabric and her body and you can see how small she is, it’s just a beautiful perspective. The colors complement her skin tony and it’s just too cute.
Here we see her turned into a little pink teddy bear with the little ears, her little feet are almost the same shade of pink as the fabric!
The hand of a father and loving parent. He is holding her entirely with both hands and she is so small she fits perfectly.
This is one of the favorite photographs, she looks peaceful, trusting her father’s hands, you can feel how calm she is, probably taking a nap while they were at the studio taking all these amazing photos, LOL!
White, on white, on white! This is an example of Tracy’s favorite looks, she adores white and this photograph shows it at it’s best. It looks so fresh and clean!
Just for a change of scenery, this warm peachy color and the texture of the fabric are the perfect combination, matching with the two pieces she is wearing. She is so adorable!
You can see her parent’s love and affection through every photograph, they hold her softly between their arms and they look lovely.
Happy Friday, everyone! It’s that time of the week when we finally get off work and head home to spend our weekend with our family and loved ones!

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.
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.
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.
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. Don’t miss this opportunity, contact us now for a free appointment for more information about Tracy’s Photography services.
This family decided to break the routine and get outdoors with one of the top photographers in Tampa Bay; Tracy Gabbard.
This maternity session was so much fun with such a sweet family. They were so excited to meet their new baby but started early so they could capture the beauty of pregnancy. It was a beautiful day with just the perfect weather. All the way to the sunset, they went for a walk and found really beautiful spots for their photo session.
Beach maternity sessions create the most precious memories from that special time in their lives, they were so much fun to work with and laughed through the entire session in such a positive photo shoot. Tracy was very excited to capture all their emotions and the love between them.
The beginning of a new chapter in your life is always one filled with joy, excitement and most of all, anticipation. With the arrival of a new baby, chances are, you will spend hundreds, even thousands of dollars on baby furniture, clothes, and even toys. And while many of these things are necessary, almost all of them will at some point be re-sold, given away or even tossed in the trash. What will you keep forever? The priceless images you invested in throughout the years your baby grows. Professional, timeless, quality images are not something to be taken lightly. These will be your memories that will be passed down and valued for your lifetime and your baby’s.
Don’t miss your opportunity to capture these beautiful memories for your family, contact Tracy’s studio today for a free consultation.

In the next pictures we can see how he finally starts being more active and moving, crawling and developing flexibility as well as showing his eyes and expression, and finally getting super energetic in the sessions, at this point, it is the most fun sessions, since he is already used to the studio, and Tracy captures that important moment when he starts sitting up and holding himself on the chair, finalizing the session with a cake to celebrate that first year!

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!
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!

As a Tampa First Birthday Photographer, it is an honor to have an exclusive public feature on this blog! You won’t want to miss this session, Take a look at this adorable First Birthday session here. Tampa First Birthday Photographer
First birthday cake smash First I have to say, I absolutely love love love this family! As a Tampa first birthday photographer, it’s always an honor to work with a family that you’ve been with since their one-year old was in mommy’s tummy! Loved watching these little ladies grow up so fast! This was little lady’s first birthday cake smash session and it was tons of fun! These adorable sisters had similar outfits that were handmade at a local boutique and little sister loved playing with her dress during her first birthday session. She had the most fun when got the tape from the balloons stuck on her hand. As she tried to get it off, she was laughing the whole time! This fun first birthday cake smash session was one of my favorites! (first birthday cake smash)
(first birthday photographer) Seriously, the images that were created for this gallery were split seconds in time as this HAPPY little toddler RAN through the studio! Mom and I were out of breath chasing her around. So, if you look below and see her sitting….that is literally one split second, just long enough for the shutter to click! LOL! Truly, I have “standard” camera settings that I usually use in the studio…. I changed them for her to make sure I could actually capture some in focus! LOL! However, as busy as she was with her toddler “frankenstein” walk (you know when they hold their arms out in front of them to balance :)), she was truly the happiest toddler I may have ever photographed. There were hardly any images of her without a big smile on her face. That is until the smash cake part of the photography session- which she was not to crazy about. But that is okay it was a joy to meet her mom and spend time with her in the studio and I hope to see them again in the near future! (first birthday photographer)
(Tampa first birthday photographer) Oh my goodness! This sweet little thing was just adorable! We had so much fun at the park playing and then enjoying his smash cake/birthday cake to top it off! I got to see his sweet serious side for much of the session but dad hammed it up for him at the end we got some fun smiles to! Thank you to this awesome family for a fun night! Enjoy your sneak peak… I had a hard time narrowing them down to just a peak so there are a few extras as well! 🙂 (tampa first birthday photographer)
