I think it might be the holidays, but I’m totally in love with the little things for anything nostalgic. That super cute little dress was one that Marissa wore she was a baby and that rocking chair was Scott’s. I love that they included such special things. Little miss Lucy was very serious about her 1 year old portraits:-) I think my favorite thing about sessions with babies and little kids is being able to see how much they adore their children, exactly like this one. What a doll!
Ghaly, Natasha, and their 3 beautiful girls are from the Bahamas! Natasha and the girls are living here in Tampa just while she is getting her PhD in literacy at USF and Ghaly travels back and forth between Nassau and Tampa. Ghaly told me he wanted to capture the love and kindness of his family in a natural and stylish way. What a great description of who they are, I think we nailed it!! These 3 girls reminded me of my 2 sisters and I growing up:-) Such little beauties and so full of life and fun. Here's just a few of my favs!!
I photographed Katie & Ivan's gorgeous wedding in Maine 2 years ago and I was so excited to see them again as a family of 3! Drew is just the prettiest little doll with the best smiles and awesome hair:-) Makes me smile looking at these!
A pretty field, lots of laughs, and beautiful lighting was perfect for the Cuccio family session!
The last time I saw Megan and Joel was while they were waiting for miss Emma to arrive:-) I always take tons of photos for baby sessions because sometimes you get these random expressions they do and I happened to get the little "Elvis" face she makes sometimes. She is just a little doll and so full of smiles already! Merry first Christmas to you 3! xoxox
Here's a few of our favorites from the Hackney's Family session. I love their choice of colors and outfits:-) Just a fun, outdoor, natural setting!
Some of our very good friends, Faith and Stanton came in town for the Saints/Bucs game and also a family portrait session:-) Their little girl Lizzie is such a little doll baby! She's 9 months only and is just about ready to walk but not quite yet! She loved our little dog Abita and the stairs. How can you resist that sweet little face!
Here's a few little sneaks of our family portrait session with Pete, Andi and Ethan. Little Mr. Ethan is 4 and a half years old so he's at the stage when you never know what he's going to do next:-) Andi happens to also be a photographer Andi Diamond Photography, and a fabulous one at that! It's always an honor to capture the life of another photographer and I really have enjoyed getting to know her and her family!
Grethel and Stephen have become some of our closest friends in Tampa, which made our session all the more fun! Their little boy Tristan is one of the most smiley little boys. He's almost 2 and loves to run, play, and mow the lawn:-) I so enjoy capturing families just enjoying life and doing the things they would normally do to spend time with each other. Here's a little sneak of our session!
Here's a little look into our session with the Diotelevi family. Little Mr. Alex definitely is a ball of fun and energy:-) Natural + great colors + textures = fabulous!
