(clearwater beach photographer) Not only was this family super nice and fun but beautiful as well! They kids were just darling and I had a blast chasing them around the beach with my camera! Beach sessions are such an amazing way to not only create beautiful portraits but also to capture timeless memories. Making the session fun and interactive for the whole family is a great way to get the kids and parents relaxed and feeling at ease infront of the camera. Of course we always work to get the classic smiling portraits but my favorites and many time my clients favorites end up being the ones that show true personality. That may include giggling and tickling pictures or even a serious expression that tugs at moms heartstrings. It’s those faces that only moms (and sometimes dads ) know and love. This family was vacationing here and I hope that our session together was a highlight of their trip and one they will not forget. I know it was a highlight of my week! Their next big challenge will be when they receive their gallery in the next day or so and have to make decisions on what to invest in! Believe me when I say it will be a tough choice! LOVE this session! (clearwater beach photographer)
(tampa bay beach photography) Yes, these two adorable twins left me breathless as I chased them around the beach! But seriously, how cute are they? These pictures are a true representation of them and their little personalities at this age. They were so much fun and I hope to be able to see them again when they visit Florida another time!

(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.
(clearwater beach family photographer) Seriously, I am so lucky to have the most beautiful families as clients! I think one of my toughest jobs is narrowing down images for a blog post! There are SOOO many great ones of this family that I could post their whole gallery! These precious children were so much fun. The best sessions happen when a family is happy to be together and everyone (including dad ) is able to enjoy the moment. A photo shoot should not only create great images but also create a wonderful lasting memory for the family. Many families enjoy ice cream or dinner afterwards making the whole evening a fun event instead of a “the dreaded photo session”. I love to keep everyone moving and busy with “posed” pictures turning into fun candid’s that turn into giggles and snuggles. This family was amazing to photograph and they truly made the evening a fun event! Thank you “J” family! Gallery soon to follow! (clearwater beach family photographer)
(clearwater beach photographer) Yes, it was windy, yes it was slightly chilly and yes, it was cloudy BUT what a great session with this awesome family! I LOVE being able to document families at the beach. Especially when it is the kids first experience! Little kids have such a difficult time in the evenings (especially when on vacation) but these kids were such troopers! They played hard in the sand and water during our time together and I couldn’t have enjoyed watching them more. Thank you to this great family for having me capture such special moments for you! Gallery SOON to follow! (clearwater beach photographer)
Happy 5th Anniversary to this great couple! We actually had their session on their anniversary, they were so awesome and we had a blast! There was lots of kissing and I love how their images show so much emotion, you can “feel the love”! I hope your anniversary dinner was wonderful, enjoy your sneak peak!
Wow- what a session or half of a session I should say! After a mushy, mucky beach, gathering dark rainy clouds, a nice but graceful (ha!) fall from the photographer (yes, thats me!) and then some serious technical difficulties that actually ended the session early and caused us to schedule the other half another day…. I thought this awesome family deserved a quick post of a few of the images we did manage to get!
Wow- This was such a great session. This totally in love couple joined their families together on the beach one gorgeous morning. The ceremony was so simple but SO touching! It was just them and their closest family, the minister and me. Their love for their children and each other is so obvious to anyone that is lucky enough to spend any time with them. Not to mention their glowing “beauty” …. I could have photographed them all day if they would have let me but for whatever reason the kids were not up for a full day of pictures…. imagine that! We had lots of fun though for the time we did spend together. Enjoy your sneak peak “L” family…. I truly enjoyed our session and can’t wait for you to see your gallery. It will be ready soon, I promise!
Nothing like being shot a by a flower! He was so funny the whole time and even ended up in the water up to his head by the end of the morning!
Ahhhh… weather, the topic of conversations these days! It is finally warming up but it wasn’t quite soon enough for this family. It was SUPER windy and cold for these “troopers” but they hung in there and kept it going until the end! I thought about blogging a few outtakes with everyone’s hair in their faces and the kids teeth chattering but I decided to spare the family the painful reminder Thankfully we did get lots of great photos and we will just pretend the like the wind was a fan blowing to make everyone look glamorous! Enjoy!
Stunning…. the only words to represent this maternity session! See a few more on facebook by clicking here…….
