Riverview Senior Pictures: Family and Senior Photos

Riverview Senior Photos: Family Welcome

How adorable is this family? I love when Riverview senior pictures becomes a family affair. In reality, this may be the last time you take family photos for a few years. Maybe even until you are celebrating their wedding day! So, I always encourage my families who come to me to document their senior graduating to do some family pictures at the same time. There is no need for additional time for most kids. We do a few outfit changes, or in this case, just a couple simple shirt changes, and voila, they are done!

 

Honestly, as long as you pick a senior picture location around Tampa that is pretty diverse, you don’t need a ton of time. Just a few different options for a vareity of backdrops. I love using environments as my backgrounds over stuffy indoor senior photos! This Riverview senior pictures session was set in Winthrop Town Centre, which definitely has a lot of backgrounds to work for most senior outfits. We even snuck over to my favorite backdrop of full on sunset and greenery to really make the location not all urban! Plus, we ended up with a few of my favorite images from the session with the siblings just having a great time and we would not have captured their bonds without welcoming the whole family to the senior photo session!

These last images just have my mama heart exploding. I love how these boys loved on their beautiful mama and each other, and even little sister. This family is obviously doing something right in raising some sweet boys! Oh, and that shot of dad with his daughter, I mean, how can that not make you happy, too! If you are looking for sweet, real, and relaxed family photos, you know who to call!

Valrico Family Photographer: Field Session full of Light & Love

Valrico Family Photographer

Oh guys, as your local Valrico family photographer, I am so lucky we have so many lovely locations so close by! This one I have had my eye on for a while. I finally found the perfect family to test out the field at recently. They had booked a flower field session but alas, our yellow flowers got mowed.  I love seeing families come back year after year but the challenge of coming up with new locations can be daunting.

 

Just like getting new outfit ideas can be daunting for famlies who do come to me annually or semi-annually. I love that this family drew from their own closets and kep things simple this year. We let the environment being our biggest “prop” to set their photos apart. They also wanted to document the girls’ biggest phases right now.  I really thought was a fun way to bring movement and personality to their session. I am not a big proponent on props, but meaningful items for your family are always welcome.

 

However, rest assured, the biggest thing I want you to see when you look at your images when we are done is “man, I was loved.”  Therefore, connection and love will still be the first thing I capture. Add some beautiful light and magic fields, well, the rest is easy. Plus, this family is just stunning to look at. Honestly, even if you put them in a fluorescent light box, they would look great together! But no fluorescent lights needed when are lucky enough to be outdoors for family sessions this spring. I am so grateful to live in Florida when I see snow still haunting other photographers across the country!

 

Are you looking to capture your family in this location. Don’t delay. The light is perfect right now and I am offering weekday specials, so email me for more details! This is perfect for my clients or hopefully soon-to-be clients living in Brandon, Valrico, Fishhawk Ranch, Riverview or LIthia! Email me at Brooke@HamiltonCreekPhotography.com.

I have been dm’d on Instagram a few times about this mama’s hat. It is actually mine, so I can always bring it for your session (after I spray it down with some oils to keep it fresh & clean of course), but you can also find a similar one from The Buckle by Billabong here.

Tampa Photographer: Spring Motherhood Session

Motherhood Mini Sessions

Oh my lanta. The best part of being a Tampa photographer is enjoying this amazing Florida springtime weather! While the rest of the country is under snow or freezing, we are enjoying the wildflowers popping up all around. Achoo…well, except for all the pollen that comes with the amazing springtime weather, right?  This family has been so good to me. Their dad gifted his lovely wife a session last year in the flowers. Then, again we got together this fall. Honestly, they had one of the most spectacular sunsets of record this year. Now, we met to do their spring motherhood session this past week and were graced again with the most beautiful sunset and one day of cooler weather!

They hit it out of the park with styling again, too. Again, this family kept things simple, just a few t-shirts for the boys, in neutrals, and a main pattern for their littlest babe in a great flower dress that tied in the boys colors and their mama’s dress. Don’t they looked great together? Honestly, it is just right because it is not too matchy! Plus, it let the light and setting among the flowers stand out more than their outfits. Dad even popped in for just a few shots and his neutral clothing didn’t take away from their outfits either. Just an overall style win!

 

Don’t forget, March is for mamas, and I am running springtime specials and a studio session date for mini’s as well. These are great for getting family portraits and celebrating motherhood. You don’t have to wait until the fall to do family pictures. You can do them now and not stress or add to your “to-do” list in the fall when the holidays hit one after another. Before the humidity hits, too! More on the blog post here about mini’s – http://hamiltoncreekphotography.com/spring-2019-motherhood-portraits-tampa/. Trust me, this was a mini session and it is plenty of time to capture a few posted shots if that is your goal and then let the kids play so we can focus on what matters. Your love for each other and hopefully a bit of your children’s true personalities in the photos as well!

Valentine’s Day Fun: Riverview photographer Valentines Day

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Here is my Riverview photographer Valentines Day post. Just a fun post celebrating all the corny things that this commercial holiday brings along with it. Give me all the cheese! All the fun! All the glitter, all the hearts, all of it! I love that these two can entertain each other, even when they are less than enthused with listening to me. They certainly bring their twin-dom out when they are on the same “team” and these images capture that perfectly. So, happy Valentine’s Day to you all. May you get all the chocolate and flowers you can handle! Oh, and details about a session of your own at this special location is linked at the end of this email.

Tampa Family Photographer John Chesnut Park Pictures

John Chesnut Park Pictures

This family’s session at John Chesnt Park cannot help but make you smile. I giggled and squealed the entire time, too. You know when you meet people and just know they are going to be “your” people? This family was like that from the start. Being relaxed and trusting that I was going to get the details important to them is critical for a successful family session. Our focus was just to let them all have fun together. All while I easily documented their family. I find that if we let little kids lead the way, we can all have fun just watching them be themselves. That is part of the relaxing part. If there is one thing they can take away from this photo session, it is that they love each other very much. Plus, give me a dad to photograph with the most expressive face ever and I am feeling like I hit the jackpot!

Also, John Chesnut Park pictures are also awesome. This was my first time making the trek over to this park but I can tell you, I will be back 🙂 With my own family and likely a new spot for holiday mini’s this fall! It was magical and so many greenery, with light filled spots.

I love that they requested to recreate their engagement photos with their kids. We did a few shots taken at the same location as their engagement session. Just, this time with their kiddos at their feet. What a difference a few years makes, right?

Of course, the dramatic light screams for black and white edits, too.
