Where is one of the most fun places that a two year old can go to?  The playground, of course!  Shooting a mini session at the playground is genius in my opinion.  Busy toddlers don’t want to be standing still, looking directly at a camera lens.  They want to be running, swinging, sliding, and playing with bubbles!  Well, that’s exactly what we did for Grant’s two year mini session.  I think you can tell by the images we captured that he had the best time!  Candid images of little ones are my favorite.  They capture genuine emotion and show kids doing what they do best: exploring and playing!  Grant, I truly had a great time playing with you on the playground.  I love watching you grow up before my eyes!!  I hope to see you all soon 🙂

Sometimes a mini session can go a long way.  So much fun can be captured in just  3o minute session.  I met up with this sweet family at Fred Howard Park in Tarpon Springs and we got started right away.  The sky was already starting to put on a dramatic show for us, so we walked around the park and just had fun together!  Miss Londyn was wearing a twirly dress, so of course we had to do some dancing in the sunset!  We capped off our session by feeding those crazy seagulls some bread crumbs and Londyn just loved it as you can see!  I’m looking forward to seeing you all again this summer!  Enjoy your pictures!

I have been photographing these lovely clients of mine since Miss Liliana was still in her mommies belly.  You might remember that epic maternity session that was shot the night before a wicked tropical storm?  Yep- this is that mommy!  We returned to the same location at Redington Beach to shoot Lily’s 6 month session and were greeted by the same dramatic sky!  What great luck!

And I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, babies that are 6 months old are my favorite!  Still young enough to stay put, but old enough to have the best personalities!  I don’t think I could ever get bored photographing babies.  It’s impossible hold be in a bad mood when you’re around their bright, happy faces- watching them discover the world around them. Liliana was all smiles for me while we walked up and down the beach at low tide.  Have I mentioned that low tide is my absolute fave?  Those reflections are just to die for!  Pair that with a dramatic, colorful sunset and you have all the elements for a drop dead gorgeous session.  Enjoy these images B Family!  I know you will print them and cherish them forever 😉

I’ve got some more beach goodness to share from your favorite beach photographer!  The C Family came to vacation here on our beautiful beaches all the way from Canada!  The wind was pretty heavy, but that didn’t stop us from enjoying ourselves!  Little Abbie discovered how much she loves playing in the water.  In fact, mommy told me that while she was at the beach earlier in the week, she basically just stayed in the sand.  Well, that was the complete opposite for our session!  It was low tide, so the water was very shallow and Abbie just loved splashing in it!  And I loved snapping her cute little overjoyed face 🙂

Not only did we get some amazing family images, we also had to focus on mommy’s belly!  She’s due with a little boy very soon and Miss Abby will be a big sister.  I think she’ll love her new role.  Enjoy these images of your first beach vacation, C Family!

Anderson is 7 months old!

When Anderson’s mommy contacted me to do a child photo session for her 7 month old son, I got so excited!  I’m a Tampa child photographer, but I haven’t had a 6-7 month old child in a long while.  It’s definitely my favorite “baby” age to photograph.  At this age, their little personalities really start to bloom!  I think it’s the best of both worlds really.  They are little enough to stay put, but old enough to look at you and smile.  And boy, did Anderson smile!  I mean, he was honestly one of the easiest babies I’ve ever photographed.  He has such a calm, go-with-the-flow demeanor.

We ended our session with a few family shots with little Anderson.  If it weren’t for the sun going down, I could have easily kept photographing him and his cute smile.  He didn’t get cranky one bit!  Enjoy these pictures because as well as know, babies don’t keep.  I hope to see you all again soon!

I have been excited for this family session at the beach ever since it was booked a couple of months ago!  This beautiful came to me all the way from Kansas to have their first experience at the beach captured.  For these little girls, it was their first experience at the beach!  Sometimes this is so hard for me to believe, being that Florida beaches have been my second home for my entire life.  And of course, I’m a beach photographer so I’m here all the time! When we arrived and stepped out of the car, we were greeted by a blast of wind!  Honestly, it was the windiest beach day I’ve ever encountered!  But being from Kansas, they’re used to a little wind, right?! (Obligatory Wizard of Oz comment!)

Well I was determined to make the wind work in our favor and that we did!  We sang Moana songs and the girls had fun dipping their toes (ok, their whole bodies!) in the ocean and loved having the waves wash over them.  But the end of our session, the girls were drenched from head to toe!  That didn’t stop us from getting one last sunset image though and it was a gorgeous one!  T Family, I know it was super windy, but I hope you thoroughly enjoyed your first experience at the beach!
