    Kate and Rowan  – A Special Mommy and Me Session

    This!  This session set my soul on fire.  Kate is a fellow photographer and friend who asked me to shoot a special nursing session for her and her sweet little babe.  Now when a friend who also happens to be a photographer asks me to shoot a session for her, I don’t take that lightly.  I take it as an honor and a privilege!  It was a gloomy, chilly morning but honestly I loved how it added to the mood of this.  We met in a…wait for it…parking lot!  But with the right angles and lenses, you can make anything look magical: including a field in a parking lot.  You guys, we made MAGIC in this field.  Motherhood magic.  Raw, organic, and intimate without the cheesy smiles.  I wish I could share all the images with you, but in the interest of not putting it allllll out there, I’ll leave these favorites here.  I need more of this in my life!  Now who wants to schedule a mommy and me session?!   I need to shoot another one…like yesterday!

    Ladies and gentlemen…this is unconditional love.  Pets hold such a special place in their owners hearts, so why shouldn’t we document that with a photo session?  Kris and her pal Levi came to Philippe Park to play, run, and wag their tails (ok, only Levi did that).  I instantly fell in love with Levi because he reminded me of my husbands dog that he used to have when we were teenagers!  Labs are such amazing dogs.  They demonstrate immense loyalty and offer a one-of-a-kind friendship.  Kris really wanted to got some images of Levi being Levi and I think we did just that.  You can tell through these images how much love they have for one another.  I truly enjoyed every minute of this special session and hope to do another one soon!

     

    Kris and Levi, I hope you frame some of these and put them in frames next to your respective beds!  Enjoy!

    I absolutely adore this family!  They’ve been with me ever since I moved to Tampa and I have loved getting to know them so well and watching their family grow!  We met at Waterworks Park in Downtown Tampa this time around and I must say I love it!  The light there is so pretty and honestly theres not so many people there that I have to work around!  Bonus!  LOL  This session was extra special because we celebrated not one, but two important milestones.  Ben was turning 5 and Madeline was having her first birthday in a few days!  Doesn’t she look thrilled?!  Haha, the truth is that I get this a lot when it comes to cake smashes.  Parents think that their kid will totally devour the cake, but most times they don’t end up liking it AT ALL.  I think Madeline was passed the point of not liking it though.  I’m pretty sure she hated it! Either way, I got a cute picture out of it.  What?!  It’s her birthday and she’ll cry if she wants to!  Until next time, B Family.  And hopefully there won’t be as many tears!

    Enjoy these chilly beach memories, F family!  Until next time…and warmer weather!

    I absolutely adore these moments.  The moments where you just sit and stare at your new baby.  Her tiny hands, toes, and belly button.  The smell of a newborn baby is intoxicating.  Add a new big sister to the equation and watching them interact with one another just takes this special time to a whole different place. We spent this entire session in babies new nursery!  Did you see those signs hanging up on the wall?  Mommy makes those herself!  Big sissy was taking her role very seriously as she held her and gave her gentle kisses.  And how about their matching shirts?!  Too adorable!

    Thank you for having me in tour home to document this very special time wither new family of four!  I can’t wait to watch her grow!
