Do I say this about every post? It was SOOOO hard to choose what images to post! This family was so much fun and made my job super easy! I have photographed lots of tampa/clearwater familes and older “kids” lately and I just can’t believe how they stay where you put them! Being a family photographer is so much fun but I am usually running around like a crazy person trying to keep kids attention and keep them engaged with me. With “older” kids I just run around like a crazy person for no reason! I must say, the weather is also getting better for the earlier morning and later evening sessions. They are not so hot. Here is a little peak for this patient family! Gallery is following up really soon!
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!
Fun is the word for this session as you can probably tell! This little guy (well I guess he is not really that little) was such a crack up! Being a Tampa family photographer and photographing lots of families I love it when the children are easy going and interactive. They often times are the heart of the session (as children often are the heart of everything!), helping to create timeless portraits. There are so many great places in Tampa for families and this session had sentimental value for the family. That makes the portraits even more meaningful. I met this family when searching for health insurance for my family. Sam has been terrific! I highly recommend him and his services. He is easy to work with and has a wealth of great information for his clients. Check out his web site at http://www.healthlifenetwork.com/. For a little bit more TGP information I am trying to get holiday mini sessions organized so look for that coming soon. And have you signed up for the Tracy Gabbard Photography newsletter? If not, be sure to go to the home page of the web site and sign up! Great stuff in there! Now for a sneak peak for this Tampa family before they get their gallery….
I love photographing all high school seniors this one came from the tampa/dunedin area! As much of my photography is family and children (which I of course love as well!) it is fun to have a “subject” that actually stays where you put them! This senior from Dunedin High School is an awesome baseball player with a cool car! We had some fun at a local baseball field and instead of trying to change locations we made the most of the area we were at! I think we accomplished lots of different looks and fun images. Tampa high school seniors DO have a choice for senior portraits. Yes, they MUST go to the contracted photography company for the yearbook picture BUT there is NO obligation to purchase. Save your money and choose a custom tampa photographer (preferably TGP of course!) that can offer lots more choices and time so that each senior can be themselves and have images from this special year that they can be proud of and that represent who they are. Being a tampa high school senior photographer, I always encourage seniors to bring things such as clothes, hobby items, pets, etc… that they love. These make the photos more personable and unique. It’s also fun to have some changes of clothes. Even a school t-shirt of their high school or the college they will attending. TGP offers amazing Senior albums that combine images from the whole session. They are wonderful keepsakes that will last a life time. Check out a sample album HERE. On another “note” have you received the new TGP “E” letter? It is full of great information, upcoming specials, reminders and soon Holiday Mini sessions and at times info on high school senior photography to! Yeah! If you haven’t received it sign up at the bottom right hand corner of this page and you will be added to the list. I am even going to start adding a section on how to take better pictures with your own camera! Lots of “chit chat” in this blog post about tampa, dunedin high school senior photography, and other things, now lets get to the fun stuff…. great tampa, dunedin high school senior pictures!
