I mean, does it get any sweeter than these two? I can answer for you, nope! Here is a throwback to where I met this couple a few year’s back – http://hamiltoncreekphotography.com/traditional-brandon-florida-wedding/. A mini-session to help these two announce they were expecting a little one was a fun way to end December.
Ironically, their session got swapped when my newborn client decided to stay put a few extra days in their mama’s tummy. The weather looked better this particular night and the stars aligned that hair and make up could be done the day before, too. I say, we lucked out. The weather was absolutely perfect. Not too hot, not too cold, and the light, magic! Tampa pregnancy announcement pictures and a sweet couple session to ring in Christmas was a sweet end to 2020!
I loved the colors this couple picked out for the winter photo session here in Florida. This is about as “winter” as we get. Maybe a the grasses and brush will be a little less green as the weeks go on, but the maroon always pops against greenery a little more subtle than true reds do. Plus, navy and maroon is a classic combination. The color combo for family pictures go together without matching too much. I will be sharing more and more of my family sessions I did this fall. I saw a ton of maroon and navy combos that work so perfectly together!
Plus, as you may know, this location is one of my favorites to do Tampa photo sessions at. This year in particular, with Covid and taking on less sessions to hopefully have less exposure in our community, this location was a perfect spot for mini-sessions in particular. The variety of Winthrop Town Centre for family photos around the holidays means some Christmas decor. However, what I love is that a couple blocks away we get a totally different look. The green space options for pictures will last the whole year without Christmas in the background.
Are you expecting for 2021? I offer both mini-sessions for pregnancy announcements and maternity sessions. Let’s talk about your Tampa pregnancy announcement pictures soon.
If you go to their wedding blog linked above, we recreated a few of our favorite moments from their “reception” shots in the dress change.
Probably my favorite series of shots are these three below. I love incorporating movement into my sessions. A little walk can do just the trick for getting movement. Plus, the light flare was perfect for added drama. Then, as the couple walked toward me, I framed them shooting through a tree brach that was where I was standing. That little extra sun flareon the bottm of the right two shots is from the sun hitting the leaves. Not to be braggy, but using light like that is what sets me apart from other photographers. I have had clients specifically reach out to me year after year to get that light. If you want that yummy light, too, come on over!
Let’s set up your session this spring when the weather is cooler and the sun sets early enough to get home in time for dinner. Even better, stop at Winthrop Town Centre for some yummy take out! I mean, Cappy’s or Datz? You can’t go wrong!
