Valrico Maternity Photographer

Family Photos & Pregnancy Portraits Tampa

Being a Valrico maternity photographer, I truly love to incorporate families into these pregnancy focused photo session as much as possible. Plus, when you have an adorable little one to capture at the same time, it is always more fun! This gorgeous lady is an amazing person who touched our kiddos lives and I was so thrilled to capture her in her pregnancy glow. While pregnancy isn’t always easy, it is nice to document that adorable baby bump before baby arrives. Because we all know, that after they come the real chaos comes.

Speaking of chaos. A lot of moms are hesitant to do maternity photos on their second or third child. Or course, it doesn’t matter what baby number you are on, each bump is special to document. I love to also focus on the family dynamic you currently have before another member of the family joins in. Plus, it is a great way to get a few updated photos of your other children, too. I don’t only photograph mama, it is everyones turn to be photographed. Perhaps with baby number two, or three, or four, just set up your session a little earlier in the pregnancy. Your energy can sometimes get zapped a bit quicker if you have other toddlers toddling around!

Or, if you are expecting in the heat of summer, again, I would recommend setting up your maternity photos a bit earlier than normal. The heat can just zap your energy. My other maternity photo tip is to drink so much water the week of your session. Well, that actually goes for all photo sessions. Trust me, your skin will thank you! Make sure you moisturize your hands and arms more than normal, too. Your hands are usually photographed a bit closer up during pregnancy photos. Schedule a manicure or maternity massage. Both are a great way to feel pampered before your session!

Oh, and yes, this Valrico photo location was phenomenal. How gorgeous does this mama look, bathed in sunshine and surrounded by beautiful landscapes and love from her family? I mean, I could photograph here every day! . I know my most commented question on blog posts is “where were these taken?”  It is a private location, so alas, I can’t give the location away. However, for this family, it really worked so perfectly!

Riverview Senior Photos: Winthrop Town Center

Stylish Senior Session at Winthrop

Riverview senior photos at Winthrop Town Center is definitely a trend for the class of 2019. I have one more that we had to reschedule due to this crazy rain and I can’t wait. This senior was special because I have known this guy since he was about the age of our own boys! I seriously can still see his little boy face, but don’t tell him that! It really is surreal to see him about to graduate. I can’t even imagine what his parents are feeling right now. Seriously, I know how much I am freaking out about having almost middle schoolers!

This guy has his own style and I love that. Much like our own boys. Our kids will most certainly have all the input into what they will wear for senior pictures some day, too. His high school senior session was even more personaly styled with his own custom shoes. I mean, I am so lame I didn’t even know this was a thing. Maybe he is a trend setter for Riverview senior photos? So enjoy these photos of this handsome, happy, and kind young man. Supposedly he is loud, like that was his senior award, and that he gets from his mama.  I love his personality comes through in these pictures.

If you are here for this guy and his family, don’t forget to comment below on the blog post to help them get a gift print from me. After all, the best part of getting the photos done is printing them so you can enjoy them as you walk by the photos on your wall every day! Do you have a soon-to-be high school senior? Contact me to start planning yoru Riveview senior photos for 2020!

And as you can see from the above shots, this guy is a model. He was one of the easiest seniors I have photographed to date. But that smile, that real laugh smile, I mean, my mama heart about melted, too!

 

The best part of senior pictures to me is having the parents join in the photos. I mean, this is a big deal guys! Why wouldn’t you want to celebrate your child’s graduation with them!

Family Vacation Beach Photo Session

Sandpearl Resort Clearwater

There is just something about being there to document your vacation with a family vacation beach photo session. When families travel together, there are so many moments to capture. Taking an hour out of the vacation for priceless family memories is just about the sweetest way to make sure the vacation never ends. Cheesy? Probably, but I really do love documenting families who come to visit Tampa Bay!

I loved meeting this sweet family while they visited Clearwater Beach a few weeks ago. The weather was perfect. Not too hot, not too cold, just right. As my other family knows from that same week in a different beach location, we were so lucky the love bugs were not in full force yet in Clearwater! We met at the gorgeous Sandpearl Resort on Clearwater Beach. I have done a couple of photo sessions here and it really is beautiful. The public beach access is close by, but honestly, the beach wasn’t too full of people at all. Even during spring break time for much of the country!

This family kept their beach wardrobe simple with creams, whites, hints of blue and even a bit of pink. They all had different bits of texture to really stand out even in their perfect beach simplicity. The eyelite lace details, linen shirts and stripes and tiny  details on the babies outfits were not too matchy-matchy. Just the right amount of cordination, in my opinion. They all worked together for some group photos, but they also looked great in their smaller family units.

Sisterhood Portrait Session: Tampa Family Photographer

Sisterhood Portraits Riverview, Florida

I have known these little ones for quite some time. It was so great to see them and photograph their sisterhood bonds again. The field and their darling dresses were a perfect match, right? I love the bold patterns among the nature. As a Tampa family photographer, the environment I shoot in is always a big part of my photography. The first thing I want to focus on for my Tampa families is the connections I can capture. Secondly, I want my clients to wear something that is their style, clothes they are comfortable in, but also photographs well.

The other thing to think of when choosing clothing is where you want to hang your pictures when you are done. If you have bright colors in your house, maybe find clothing that matches your happy style. If you are in a house of neutrals, then you cannot go wrong with planning photography outfits that are neutral as well. The last thing that really helps bring all of these other things together is the location of your session.

This was definitely a fun Tampa family photo session for sure. The girls even enjoyed my hats as much as I do. Somehow, I think they make look cuter, but I still love them for bad hair days!  Want your own family photo session among the field to celebrate your daughters? Call me today, I am starting to book sessions for the fall already! This location will hopefully be available for full sessions and weekday evenings sessions, too!
