What To Wear Wednesday: Fall Plum

Okay, is anyone else starting to stress out about what to put their family in this year for the annual family photos and holiday card photos?  As a photographer, we have to do our own family photos early since October and November and sometimes even into December I am swamped taking everyone else’s family photos.  I am knee deep into decisions of what-to-wear right now. I think I am 99% done though, whew, what a relief.  With that in mind, I wanted to share some of my own ideas and inspirations with you as you get ready to do your family photos this year.  If you find this helpful at all, leave a little shout out below, I would love to hear from you.  Do you want to see a particular color inspiration board, leave a note below and I will try to work on that next week.  The clothing this week are from The Loft, Target, The Children’s Place and H&M and are all current styles available now for fall 2013. Also, Design Seeds is an amazing place to start working on color palette inspiration. I love the idea of plum, gray and a little sparkle of metallic in the sweater.  You could certainly add mint to help pop a bit more.  Dad’s sweater could be paired with a mini-button down or polo, and Mom could wear some mint jewelry, even the little brother could throw on mint jeans with all the color jeans out there right now!  Feel free to find some of my what-to-wear boards on Pinterest as well! Enjoy!!!

Philippe Park Safety Harbor – Family & Twin Photographer

I love repeat families and this family has been with me from the very beginning! I love seeing their twin boys blossom and catching up with this fabulous family.  Photographing twin boys, especially as toddlers can be particularly challenging, they are generally full of energy, but these boys’ energy really worked for us!  We had a great night at Philippe Park in Safety Harbor, a park I don’t get to often, but when I do, I am amazed at the natural beauty all around us in Tampa Bay.  This session was all about the brothers and the fun they were having.  They were making me laugh so hard, I am surprised I did not have more camera shake going on.  I hope they can look back on these silly and fun photos later in life and know they were so loved and I hope their grandies who live far away enjoy seeing a glimpse of a moment in their daily lives! If you are here for the V family, leave them a note to let them know you stopped! Thank you for visiting! ~Brooke

Tampa Family Photographer – Curtis Hixon Park

Look who is going to be four!! It is amazing how big both these kiddos have gotten in the last year and a half of photographing their family.  I loved their look for this more urban and bright session downtown in Tampa’s Curtis Hixon Park. Mom really popped with her bright pink hair accessory, and M was ever the diva, love it! But this session was more about big bro J turning 4.  He was a right to listen to and watch jump and be a fun loving big guy! What a lovely family, I cannot wait to see how much they have grown when I get to see them in a few months. Something fun about milestone sessions is certainly watching you all grow along with me!  If you are here for the H family feel free to post a comment below; I thank you for stopping! ~ Brooke

Riverview Family Photographer – Pregnancy Announcement

Guess who is preggers?  This gorgeous lady, who happens to be a dear friend, a fellow photographer, and just an all around ball of awesomeness!  I am so happy for their little family of three becoming a family of four around St. Patty’s Day next year.  I really thought she was having twins when I found out, poor girl has been so sick…but there is just one in there.  I cannot wait to find out if it is a boy or a girl, but for now, they can sit back and enjoy not knowing and wondering all about that baby inside. Big sister is heart-set on a baby sister…but whatever baby is, I know they will be loved!  I was so honored to be asked to help announce their pregnancy to the world!

I also had to add two images from one of my adventures with these ladies, on the very morning they shared the news of their newest addition-to-be!  I love being able to scout locations with other photographers, especially ones who are so positive, supportive, fun and her daughter is about the cutest thing ever, seriously her love of life just exudes from every part of her being!  Enjoy!

Medard Park – Brother & Sister session

This family found me through another family I have done sessions with, and I am so thankful when you all recommend me on to your friends and even strangers looking for a photographer recommendation! I feel so lucky to have photographed this family on such a lovely night, again at one of my favorite places to photograph in Tampa, Medard Park. Yes, technically it is all the way out in Plant City, but it is a pretty quick drive to the park even from downtown Tampa.  This session was for C’s 16th birthday.  Her brother came along for some great brother and sister moments and what 9 year old does not want to get in the fun of being photographed, too.  Enjoy the images and if you are here for this lovely family, please leave a comment below so they can get a gift print from me! Thanks for stopping, Brooke
