Pet Photography

Yes, you read that right, pet photographer. Why not, kids love me and pets are really just like your children for a lot of people! Amigo is certainly one of the most well loved dogs ever.  How amazingly sweet is he?  I was honored to capture Amigo and his “dad” this past week.  They have been best of friends for a long time.  I have been lucky enough to do this for families in the past and a few families have lost their precious dogs after our sessions and they were all so thankful for the memories we were able to document.  I hope you enjoy these amazingly adorable photos of Amigo!

What-to-Wear Wednesday – Traditional Holidays

What-to-Wear Family Pictures

I am not going to lie, red is not my favorite color. There, I said it, but it is one of my boy’s favorites, and I know a lot of people are drawn to red for the holiday season, so here is my take on the “traditional” what-to-wear.  All of the looks are from one store, Target! This look also shows three kids, two little ones and a bigger sister look.  If you had an older boy, then just stick to gray and black and maybe a red tie or bow tie for a little fun! The Baxter Boy’s Etsy store is where I got my son’s orange bow tie this year and I loved it! For accessories for the girls, I love Sassy Sweethearts Boutique  and Birdie Baby Boutique,  both local shops to the Tampa area!  Don’t be too simple even when dressing in traditional colors, get some different patterns, just not all in pattern or all very large patterns, and even different fabric types for layering.  Jewelry and accessories also make the session and pop in photos, so plan ahead, and remember, this does not need to be every day jewelry or hair accessories! Just stand out a little more, you can use the accessories again for dress up or holiday parties and being a traditional color, means you should be able to wear it again and again!  Imagine these outfits in a green setting, and voila, you are certain to stand out!

What-to-Wear Wednesday Non-traditional

fall non-traditional-what-to-wear-hamiltoncreekphotography

 

Yes, I missed Wednesday! I know, but that is what happens when you have a bit of the nasty cold going around. I am still getting lots of questions about what-to-wear for photos this year, so I did not want to wait until next Wednesday, so we’ll call it WTW Thursday for this week!  How about a little outside the box clothing options for you.  Fall is full of rich fall colors like orange, maroon, navy, reds, and holidays is definitely full of red and green options, but how about the families who want to stand out? Well, this bright yellow and blue combo will definitely do that! If you are doing  a session outdoors right now, the grasses in Florida are still bright green, so you will want to stay away from the traditional green if you want to stand out in that setting.  Your family should not blend in to the background in your family photos, so how about a fun color to make you pop.  Yellow does that, certainly fuchsia would do the same. Even red would in a green setting, but then you definitely look like the traditional holiday color combo!  Don’t forget your accessories, too, so even if this is too bold for you, go with neutrals and think of jewelry or scarves or a sweater or jacket with a pop of color instead!

Oldsmar Family & Newborn Photography

Meet the sweetest little one and her adorable family. There is just something so magical about your first baby, right? For us, we had two at once, so I can only image how it is to welcome a new baby home, so completely yours, you are forever under their spell, those first few weeks with your undivided love and attention getting to know each other and creating new routines and new family memories.  While baby L did not want to sleep much at our session, she did give us a few brief moments of sweet sleep for some cute posed shots with lots of personality and facial expressions, but still, my favorite shots have to be those sweet new parent shots of life together at merely eight days new.  Some of her images are surprises for her baby announcement, but I did get the okay to share some of the images with you all.  Thank you C family for letting me document your newest love of your lives!

Davis Park – Family Portraits

Family Portraits

Davis Park, Brandon, Florida

This family is one of the sweetest families I have ever photographed.  Not only that, but clearly they have mad style, right?  They practically wrote the what-to-wear for family pictures guide this year.  Even their adorable puppies were perfect for the family photos! We had the most amazing sunset and fun backlighting at Davis Park in Brandon for pictures.  It is clearly becoming one of my favorite places to do sessions, particularly for that great Fall feeling! In fact, I put together two quick mini-sessions for families next week, so if you are looking for holiday pictures this year, I am honoring my “early bird” pricing for next Wednesday October 23rd in the evening at 5:30 pm, or next Thursday, October 24th, for 5:45 pm!  Email Brooke@HamiltonCreekPhotography.com to book your spot, and find more about the early bird pricing at www.HamiltonCreekPhotography.com/Holidays! These would also be a great spot to get the perfect Halloween shots of your little ones!!! I also have availability on Saturday, October 26th at Medard Park due to some schedule changes if you are ready for holidays early this year!
