BRRRR! But she ROCKED it! You would never know that it was windy and COLD on the beach this night! This high school senior was SO much fun and so was her family that joined us to keep us company! She was willing to do anything and in between warming up in a jacket braved the cold in short sleeves and tank tops! She even got a little wet in the water… just a little but I know it was SO cold! And a shout out to the class of 2011…the end of the year is fast approaching so if you live or travel to Tampa, Clearwater or surrounding areas…. get your groove on and schedule your Senior sessions with TGP NOW!
So, when this tampa mom called me to chat about a newborn session these were a few of her questions… “can you come to my home on a ranch?, can we incorporate a saddle?, can older brother be in a few images because they have matching wrangler shirts?, I have some newborn hats, can we use them? I love the outside images, can we use the ranch land?” ….. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? YES, YES and YES! I LOVE outside newborn sessions, I love beautiful land (what photographer doesn’t), I love family props (especially saddles ) and I love newborn hats and accessories! Dream session….. So, how did this session go? Well, we had a baby that just WAS NOT tired which makes for a much longer session for family, it was chilly outside so we could only shoot a couple outside, newly older brother would not participate in ANY pictures unless the saddle was involved and his brother was NOT in them (typical two year old) so, dream session…. STILL came out dreamy! LOVE these images and although it was impossible to create all the ideas I had for all the reasons above it was still a wonderful experience meeting this family helping to create lasting memories. To this special family- I hope you enjoy your sneak peak…. I know your little one has already changed so much in these couple short weeks!
I try not to blog to many holiday sessions since I know many of the images end up on Christmas cards and I certainly don’t want to spoil any of those surprises. So, after I am sure everyone has received their cards I like to post a little preview of some of the holiday sessions I was lucky enough to photograph. There were lots of mini sessions and full family sessions and there is no way to share all of them but here are some fun ones that I thought you might enjoy.
