The H Family

Oh my lanta, aren’t they just delish? Pretty much! This sweet family contacted me a few months ago. We were so fortunate they waited until March so we could do their family session among the flowers. As a Riverview family photographer I am so lucky to have this location so close to my house. I have been super busy with sessions this spring, even between taking some time off for spring vacation. I adored our time together. Their twins were so full of energu and they clearly adored their gorgeous big brother. They were so funny with each other because almost every sibling shot ended with a few of them on the ground, which absolutely reminded of my own kiddos!  I love the mama’s real expressions and love for her kiddos, too.

 

Can we just talk about the amazing light for their session, too? Wow! The light was magic. I loved the light playing on mama’s tulle skirt and lighting up the dust in the air in many of the shots.  If you are looking for a Riverview family photographer, I am your girl. We are so lucky to have so many fun locations around the area. I can’t wait to get back here soon!  There is one more morning spot open for the motherhood mini-sessions if you are looking for a fun morning with your kiddos – read more HERE (http://hamiltoncreekphotography.com/motherhood-portr…pa-mini-sessions/).

 

This was a full family session; therefore, the images are much more plentiful and varied. A full photo session works better for many families. This is especially true for families who have little ones that may be shy. Or if your kids just take a while to warm up. It is also good for littles like mine who need breaks from the camera in their faces. When booking, it is good to talk to your photographer about your kids and their personalities to make sure you get the right fit for you. I don’t offer mini-sessions year round. However, many clients do take advantage of the shorter sessions when I do offer them. Sometimes a mini session is all their kids have the attention span for. Othertimes, kids take more time to let their true personalities out.

 

So make sure you think of these things before you book your next session!

Love the kids making their way under mom’s skirt and mom’s face. Such a mom moment, am I right?

Tampa Motherhood Mini Session: W Family

Yellow Flower Field Mini Session

Meet the sweet W family. How adorable are they? I wish I looked this good before 8 am! We captured their Tampa motherhood mini session amongst the yellow wildflowers this year. What a perfect backdrop for their gorgeous, more traditional and classic outfits. I loved that this session captured the sweet moments of snuggles, some fun and independence, and particularly, details of toddlerhood in such a beautiful setting. We met in the morning, which is different to my norm, but the flowers bloom with a lovely tree line behind them to give that gorgeous bokeh, so the early start was worth it!

I don’t know how long these “flowers” will last, but man, I wish I could just do every session here. I have another session set for morrow morning and I can’t wait! A first birthday session among these flowers will be just perfect, too! Don’t forget I have a motherhood mini-session offer running right now. I can’t guarantee the flowers will last forever, but moments with your littles we capture certainly would! More details about the Tampa motherhood mini-session are listed HERE.

 

Is it just me, or does this little one’s smocked dress and bow have an “Alice in Wonderland” feel to it? I just loved the magic of watching her explore the flower field.

Riverview Senior Pictures

In the Flowers

If you are looking for Riverview senior pictures –  I am here for you! I am also up for any of the high school seniors around Tampa Bay, as I love to set out for new session locations! I loved meeting this sweet Senior a few weeks ago. We have been planning her session for months, and it just so happened these gorgeous wildflowers, or weeds you may say, popped up right at the perfect time! How fun and stunning does she look in amongst the wildflowers?  Her smile and giggles were infectious, I found myself smiling the entire time I was taking her picture and editing all these lovely images, too. There are a few weeks left, and there is no time like the present to schedule a fun senior session before the end of the year!

The pink of her dress perfectly popped against the warm yellow flowers and lush greenery. I loved “shooting through” the flowers to give that awesomely yellow “flare” on a couple of the images! I always think I must look nuts doing it, but the results get me every time!  With a quick changes we were able to document another side of this high school senior in a more urban location around the always fun Winthrop Town Centre! I loved her energy and the movement the longer dress gave, especially with the shorts built into the outfit! If you are here for Miss S, leave a comment below to help her earn a gift 8×10 print on me! I wish her all the success next year!

Calling all the mamas! You know Mother’s Day is right around the corner. The best gift you can ask for is the gift of sleeping in and coffee in bed, and then second is a photoshoot capturing your bonds with your children, or child. Announcing the motherhood portraits for 2018 for Tampa Bay!

I cherish the motherhood sessions I am able to document every year. There is just something so beautiful of capturing moms and children; all the snuggles, the fun, smiles and love you have for each other. Girl, you know the saying, “I know the days are long, but the years are short” – I know you do. I feel you, I see you. Those long days, I get it.

The days may feel sleepless and you may not always feel pretty and want your picture taken, but trust me. You see, not only are you going to want those pictures to look back on, but your children will cherish them just as much one day.

South Tampa Engagement Pictures

Three locations for one engagement photo session? Yup, we sure did it! Check out how we got to three locations for these South Tampa engagement pictures.

What a lovely couple; inside as much as outwardly so. They met me a month ago to discuss wedding photography needs and I immediately felt like I knew them for years. They are so down to earth and so in love. Like so.in.love. I loved watching them talk and look at each other. It reminded me of when I met my husband so many years ago. We talked about “just knowing” it was going to be for forever almost immediately. I felt the same with my hubs, too.

 

We started at Fred Ball Park just off Bayshore Avenue. I knew the light would be perfect for starting a bit early and then we could quickly walk across Bayshore Avenue for the quintessential “Tampa Bay” shots on the bay and the gorgeous backdrop of the city.  I loved their clothing options so much, it worked so well for the city vibe and then beach, too. Shortly after Bayshore we headed over to Davis Island Beach. This is one of my favorite Tampa photo locations ever. I wish I would have started going their sooner. But I also wish I could keep it secret for forever! I don’t ever want to show up and be fighting for space like we photographers have to do at Redington Pier!

 

Lastly we finished up at dusk down in Hyde Park Village. They met close by and it was great to do a quick change and a wrap up with a few more South Tampa engagment pictures in a location that work great for evenings.
