Double Trouble! 5 Beautiful Siblings from Family Photography Sessions

What’s better than one baby? That’s right! Two babies. Family Photography Sessions are always better when there are two babies!

At Tracy’s studio, Family Photography Sessions are filled with laughter and fun. Sometimes, we are lucky to have beautiful twins and siblings with some small or long age gap that makes every session very special. 

Even though babies grow fast, their age gap can be noticed a lot more when they are younger, especially during the First Years.

You can definitely see their expressions and capture their personalities on these special occasions. The older siblings are always loving and protective towards their younger brother or sister. Tracy does an incredible job at capturing this with a high-end creamy and soft finish, keeping sharpness and quality in every photograph.

Tracy finds it interesting, and she likes to play with this characteristics as they become possible. For example. In this photograph, you can see these two little ones have a big age gap. It was a great opportunity to create this heartwarming canvas.

Family Photography is Tracy Gabbard‘s passion. She loves having families coming to her Studio in the Clearwater area and creating different concepts to portray their client’s memories. 

It is also very commonly desired by parents, to use the same outfits and match them just for fun. Sometimes they would do it for twins but other times just because it’s a fun thing to do. With this white background, Tracy created a very smooth and refreshing look on these siblings. 

Sometimes, Tracy loves getting out of the Studio and shoot at special locations. Some locations have a special place in the client’s hearts or are simply stunning, Family Photography can be shot either at the Studio or Outdoors as well. 

Last but not least, sometimes everything is even better when there are three! We want to wish you a great weekend! Thank you for reading!

Happy Thanksgiving from Tracy Gabbard, time for Family Photography ♥

First and foremost, it is Family Photography time, whether you take them with your family or you book a high-end photo session with Tracy Gabbard.

The weather is gorgeous and it is the perfect time to get together and bond as a family. Maybe it is just you and your baby, you and your spouse and kids or the whole family. Family Photography is one of the most classic forms of photography and for a good reason.

Family comes first. With them, you grow, you evolve and you learn every single day. If there is someone who is always going to be there, that would be your Mother, Father or those who raised you. 

Sometimes, life makes it hard for the family to get together. And since most people have the opportunity, members of the family will travel across the globe to share time with you.

Maybe you are even luckier and are expecting a baby. This would be just the perfect time to book a Family Photography session with Tracy Gabbard.

We encourage to pay special attention to your family these days. Make memories, have conversations and make that bond even stronger. 

In these modern days, we celebrate Thanksgiving by spending time with our family. Don’t forget to make sure you express your love and affection.


Every year, families join Tracy at her studio in Clearwater, Florida for a special Family Photography session. She is devoted to her clients and enjoys bonding all the way through the sessions. It soon becomes a tradition. 

These special moments are valuable and won’t come back. Book a high-end photo session with Tracy Gabbard before the year ends. Make sure to ask for the special custom products she offers besides the digital files. There are beautiful products such as canvases, high-quality photo albums and many more options to display.

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. Don’t miss this opportunity, contact us now for a free appointment for more information about Tracy’s Photography services.

Today We Bring You A Colorful Family Story.


The first year has been the cutest photography session for this family.

Loving his full head of hair and creamy baby skin. Tracy chose warm colors that bring out his perfect skin tone. 


Such a detailed close up, showing his tiny feet and the resting position on a peaceful moment. Tracy has an special ability to calm down and keep babies in a great mood during the sessions. It takes a mother and a children oriented person to understand and manage such young tiny humans.

In this picture, Tracy wanted to capture the beauty in the difference of skin colors, and how tiny the feet are. It is one of the cutest parts of the body when they are so young, because you can feel how fragile and young they are.

We often show a close up of the mother and the baby, but this time we want to make sure you experience a close up with the father. Their bond is extraordinary. You can almost feel how smooth the baby skin is just by looking at the photograph.

We know its just early August, but we want to sneak a peak for the amazing Holiday Special Photo Sessions that are coming up these year. Stick around to check out more in the next few months.


Holiday Sessions are very limited and they are usually sold out really fast, don’t miss your chance once the time comes, contact Tracy for more information about this, specially is you are waiting for that special new member to arrive to the family this Christmas!

They are a very loving family, they enjoy playing together and thought it was the best idea to show a playful pose. You can feel the adventure and active side of the portrait in the father and son pose and you can see the more loving and caring side in the pose the mother and daughter hold for this particular photograph.

He loves playing with cars and it’s becoming a big collector of them. Tracy thought of it and decided to take a photograph of his favorite cars and as the years go by, he can go back and remember his first collection. It’s an unforgettable memory.

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!



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!

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.  Individual products start at 150.00 and the average client invests around 750.00 to 3500.00 on their forever keepsakes.

I was so happy that the weather worked out for us! We were at a local park for this one and the sunlight was awesome! As a tampa maternity photographer,  I can still remember how thrilled mommy and daddy were for the soon expected arrival of their sweet bundle of joy.

Fun in the Sun Beach Maternity (tampa maternity photographer)

(tampa maternity photographer) This awesome couple was lots of fun. They traveled from Plant City all the way to Clearwater Beach for their beach session. Their love for each other was totally obvious during their session and as a Tampa maternity photographer I love being able to capture that for them. The pure joy for their new baby truly makes the images so real and meaningful.

     It was an absolutely beautiful night (as you can see). We thought it might be chilly but it turned out to be gorgeous. The wrap material on the beach was all Mommy’s idea. She braved changing on the beach (thankfully it was not to busy that night) and we even thought the “beach police” were headed our way at one point as she was changing! She was covered with a towel but we were all like nervous teenagers! LOL! We had tons of fun and captured some really great images for their maternity session. The couple’s newborn session was just as awesome and I look forward to sharing their precious baby girl soon! Stay tuned! (tampa maternity photographer)

Beautiful light, Beautiful Beach Maternity (tampa maternity photographer)

(Tampa maternity photographer)  Scheduling a beach session at this time of the year is always challenging with the unpredictable weather.  Well, who am I kidding- scheduling a beach session at anytime of the year is challenging in Florida as we NEVER know when a rain shower could arrive but during this time of the year there are other elements to consider as well.  Wind and cold temperatures are at the top of the concern list for this time of the year.  It was not different for this tampa maternity session.  We had it scheduled for just a little bit later but this smart mommy to be was watching the weather and contacted me to see if we could move it up a few days since a cold front was expected our our originally scheduled day.  It was  GREAT move (as you can see) since we had amazing light, beautiful temperatures and only a little breeze!

I am really looking forward to getting to know this couple this year as their next session will be their newborn session (delivery expected in just a few short weeks) as part of the TGP New Beginnings Plan.  They choose to add on a maternity session to the plan and I think it was a very smart move considering how their session turned out!  They will have amazing images to look back on and remember this special time of their lives!  This will probably be their last “easy” beach session as I am sure any that they consider in the future will include an adorable child! LOL!  (tampa maternity photographer)

To go to not to go…. (tampa maternity photographer)

(tampa maternity photographer)  To go or not to go… to the beach for this maternity session….it was literally up in the air as I was driving to meet them.  This mommy to be joined the TGP New Beginnings Plan had her heart set on a beach maternity session but the weather was NOT cooperating.  This couple went down early to enjoy a bite to eat before our session.  So they were there watching the clouds pour in (literally!) 🙂 Her first phone call was…. “I know it’s cloudy but I think it will be okay”.  So, I packed up for the beach.  On my way down her second phone call was “It’s raining, I think we better switch to the studio”.  So, I slightly changed directions and headed there.  Her third phone call was “I think it’s clearing up.  Let’s try the beach”!  So, I headed to the beach (which is one of my favorite places to shoot)!  Well, as we all know, Florida weather is SO unpredictable and as it turned out, it ended up being windy, cloudy, cold AND rainy.  But we made the best of it and I must say we captured some of my favorite maternity images ever!  The weather made it a truly unique session and we were able to create some images that could have never happened with a perfect sunset.  (tampa maternity photographer)

So, I am such a bad blogger, especially during the busy season. But I love to share special sessions and families that I get to meet.  I am going to go back, pick a few sessions and share their stories and images.  Tomorrow you will get to see this couples newborn session.  He is SUCH a doll baby.  I can’t wait to see him at his next session.

I heart them so much! (tampa maternity photographer)

(tampa maternity photographer) Oh blog…. I am sorry you have been so neglected lately!  I am as backed up blogging as I was over the holiday season.  Lots more to share and I will try to get caught up soon!  Anyway,  my soon to be niece is in that tummy and I can’t wait for her to arrive (which we are hoping any day now (she is due on 9-10-11… isn’t that cool?  Especially since it is my husbands bday) we are hoping she will be early… of course!  I am so excited to get my camera lens on her and snap away! 🙂  Anyway, I am so luck that my sister in law is truly one of my closest friends and I have NO idea what I would do with out her and her family!  Since she has already seen these, it is not really a sneak peak for her but just a fun share for me.  Enjoy!  (tampa maternity photographer)

They are part of the TGP New Beginnings Collection so I am lucky enough to be able to photograph them this whole year and watch them grow as a family!  (tampa maternity photographer)

Maternity…. (tampa maternity photographer)

I love the maternity sessions with my New Beginnings Collection members.  It’s great to finally get to meet them (if we haven’t already) and spend some time getting to know them and maternity sessions are just the time to do that.  The next time I meet them they have a baby and we all know how the rest of the sessions go from there  🙂  Personal, “getting to know you” chit chat is VERY minimal as EVERYTHING is now about that precious little life!  Its fun to watch these couples grown with their babies through out the year.  This couple was special in many ways but one of them is that they have chosen to WAIT (yes, I said WAIT) until the baby is born to find out what it is!  Okay- that tells me they will be amazing parents, to wait for that bit of news tells me that they have amazing patience! A trait we all know is a must have for kids!  Anyway,  I can’t wait to find out what they are having but I will have to wait with everyone else.  At least I am on their “Call list” when the baby is born so I can find out right away! 🙂

Stunning! (tampa maternity photographer)

Wow… I had the most difficult time trying to decide what images to blog from this Tampa maternity session!  This special mommy to be is a member of the exclusive TGP New Beginnings Plan.  Maternity sessions are so special and each one is unique to the new mom.  This Tampa maternity session was no different!  This couple was amazing to work with and so much fun.  We had perfect Tampa weather for this maternity session(okay, well maybe there were just a few drops of rain but they were quick to leave us).  In order to make a really great maternity session it is always good to have a few changes of clothing.  I have a few things as well that I always bring, just in case.  I also LOVE when my families, pregnant mommies and high school seniors incorporate personal items into their session.  This maternity session included a pair of baby shoes (shown below) that “daddy” wore as a little guy.  As a Tampa maternity photographer I love to have sessions all over the Tampa area.  The Tampa bay beaches always provide us with beautiful images but other fun “Tampa” places are Ybor City (or any local downtown area), local parks and many families choose their own homes for sessions.  That makes it really personal!  Anyway, here is  a big ole’ sneak peak for this couple as I could not choose any less images to share.  There are so many more great ones!

Baby Bump! (clearwater, tampa maternity photographer)

I often say, one of the best parts of the job is meeting new clients. And it was such a pleasure to meet this “mommy and daddy to be” after several phone conversations and lots of emails!  She owns a great local florist shop in Dunedin so we of course had to incorporate lots of flowers into her session…. to many to blog!  But check out her web site and stop by her shop in Dunedin sometime  wwww.floristofthenorthwoods.com!  For now, enjoy a sneak peak!




Whats a maternity session without some the fan and some glamour to make it just that much more fun????


How cool is that to incorporate your logo into your session?

Marvelous Maternity… WOW! (tampa, clearwater maternity photographer)

This awesome couple came in for a maternity session with an open mind and willing to try anything! Check out these awesome images that we were able to capture!  AND can you believe, mom is only two weeks away from having her little one?!  Just a quick tip for any mommies to be that are considering a maternity session with any photographer, usually the best month to have your photos taken is right about 8 months but this couple “rocked it” anyway!  Anyway, enjoy these stunning images!
