How blessed are these two families to welcome two babies into the world within days of each other. These cousins are just going to be the best of friends! Both of these sessions were also gifted by a wonderful friend for these special mamas! They were also my first newborns of 2015 (yes, I am still very very behind in blogging!). The were both just the sweetest babies and I was so honored to be chosen to photograph them at just a week old! I’m telling you, newborns just melt my heart!!!
It’s probably not a surprise that I am way behind in blogging my sessions. It’s June 2015 and I still have sessions from October of last year that I haven’t blogged! There are so many adorable families and babies that need to be shared! I had quite my share of family sessions last fall. Too many to post them all but I need to post more of my favorites! I used to take on family sessions throughout the year but this year, I am limiting family sessions to just the fall. I have just been so busy with all these babies being born all year round. I have already had many requests for family sessions so be on the look out for announcements for dates in October and November! The fall season is such a great time for family sessions in Tampa, the weather definitely is much nicer!
Here are just a few of my favorites!
Fall family sessions were in full swing last October and we just had awesome weather and amazing families to photograph! And yes, I realize it’s the end of February and I’m just now getting to blogging these! Better late than never! Redington Beach Pier is one of my go to location for beach sessions. Check out some of my favorites!
The J Family welcomed a baby boy to their family a few months ago and I knew he was going to take after his big sister in the sleeping and cooperation department. I photographed big sister’s newborn session last year and she was one of my best newborns! Little brother was just as perfect and could not be any more adorable. I am completely in love with his gallery! The sibling shots came out just as I had hoped as working with a 12 month old sibling isn’t always the easiest.
Today’s post is part of a monthly blog project where I share some personal photos along with a group of fellow photographers across the country. It has been such a great way to keep me inspired and remember to capture those fleeting moments of childhood! Don’t forget to check out the link below to see what my talented friends have been up to!
Brandon has been getting swim lessons at our local Y for the last few months and loves going underwater! It was fun trying out the GoPro under water and capturing some fun photos! We are trying to enjoy the pool as much as possible so lots and lots of water photos this month!
Brandon also turned 7 this month and we celebrated with ice cream cake and a special trip to Legoland (sorry no pictures since I didn’t want to make the day about photos, he gets enough of that already!)

Get ready to see some photos from a little heart breaker in the making. He sure did charm me with those lips, beautiful blue eyes and cool personality. Mr. Caleb is such a sweet little guy and gave me so many adorable smiles. I just can’t take the cuteness! I can’t wait to see him for his cake smash session in a few months!!
The most beautiful light for photo shoots is an hour before the sun sets but that’s usually when Tampa gets our daily dose of afternoon thunderstorms. It never fails, 5 o’clock comes around and the dark clouds roll in and down comes the rain. It usually puts a damper on a lot of sessions! We completely lucked out on this maternity session. It had rained all day and stopped right before it was time for the shoot. This mama is seriously stunning and just glowing at our shoot and 11 month old big sister who I photographed as a newborn, did so well! I can’t wait to meet her little brother!
It’s that time of year again for my Fall Mini Sessions! It’s a great opportunity to have photos taken for holiday cards and get updated family photos! With a busy fall schedule filled with itty bitty newborns, these are the only family sessions I will be booking. I will be doing something similar to last year where you can choose either a beach or park location. On Saturday October 4th, it will be at Redington Beach Pier and Sunday October 5th will be at a park near Westchase. Times will be 6:00, 6:30, 7:00, and 7:30pm.
What do you get when you combine a beautiful evening, pretty light, and a super adorable baby? A beautiful session, that’s what! If you recall, I photographed Miss McKenna when she was 7 months old. One of the sweetest faces I have ever photographed! She again was nothing but smiles and adorable expressions the entire time. She was also turning the big ONE a few weeks after the session and celebrated with a cake smash session as well. Little miss was not impressed with the cake and barely wanted to touch it! I’m sure there’s a sweet tooth coming in soon though. Thank you to the P Family for choosing me to capture your beautiful family!
