Lettuce Lake Mini-Sessions

Holiday Mini-Sessions by Hamilton Creek Photography

Lettuce Lake Park, Tampa

This family has been such a fabulous fun family since I started my business almost three years ago, which means this is their third year doing holiday mini-session photos with Hamilton Creek.  I am so honored they have continued to come back.  I started to freak out when I read their ages in the questionnaire because it seems like these girls should still be three and five…and I had a slight flash of my boys getting to be seven sooner than later, too and it starts to make me panic.  Anyone else get like that at the end of the year?

This family always does the best with their outfits; every details is taken care of.  Even one of the pair of boots was pink on the bottom, so it matched their scheme.  You know I love non-traditional holiday colors every now and then for your holiday photos so that the pictures last the year and don’t look like just Christmas photos.  I know they will enjoy the canvas they got from this session for a long, long time!

Tampa Family Photographer – Lettuce Lake Park Pictures

Tampa Family Portraits

Lettuce Lake Park, Tampa

Meet the F family! I love meeting new families this time of year, especially fun and sweet ones who are referrals from another of my favorite fun and sweet families! How gorgeous are they?  You know I am a total pink girl and loved what they wore.  It was a great pop against the natural setting of Lettuce Lake Park. I know most people want red or green at Christmas, but I get overwhelmed with red, and am such a sucker for pink.  And all that hair?   Photographer’s heaven, I tell you, gorgeous setting, gorgeous family and gorgeous weather! Kind of a trifecta.  Happy Holidays F family! If you are here for them, please feel free to show them some love with a comment below, they can get a gift print from me when you do.  Thank you for stopping!

Brandon Wedding Photographer

Weddings are not my niche, but every now and then you have to try new things, and this lovely young couple trusted me and a few colleagues on their special day.  I am so thankful that other photographers in the past have let me second shoot weddings with them so I have been comfortable enough to do one or two weddings now on my own. I was so happy to have two photographers willing to do the same for me during the ceremony and first dances. A big thank you to Reilly & Patricia for helping me capture some treasured moments of B&P’s big day!  Most of the time photographing their day was at the reception, which was a lot of fun and full of some serious dance moves.  Hello, I almost dropped my camera when they started the “Harlem Shake” – literally! It rained most of the day, but for stayed dry for enough time to get some of the couple before sunset at the reception, which was perfect! B’s dad’s umbrella was perfect for a few dramatic shots.  I wish the happy couple nothing but love and happiness and thank you for letting me help document your day.

Enjoy, and if you are here for the happy couple, don’t forget to comment below to help them get a gift print from me as a thank you!

Largo Photographer: Beach newborn pictures

Largo Family Photographer

Newborn Beach Pictures

Meet baby M, she was just six days fresh when we met at Sand Key, to do a portion of her newborn photos.  Newborn pictures outdoors in November can be amazing.  Her grandmas, big brother and mom and dad were all there to keep her warm, safe and enjoy the gorgeousness that they are blessed to live close to. I have to say, I wish I would have been able to do this for my own little beach bums when they were newborns!  What a lovely little mermaid and a story to tell her for a long time about her newborn photos!  Her brother was so in love and so well behaved, despite having to share a lot of attention with his gorgeous new sister.  Hamilton Creek- Photography-newborn-pictures-at-the-beachblog-hamilton-creek-photography-newborn-pictures-at-the-beach-2

Extended Family Session Curtis Hixon Park

Large Extended Family Photographs

Tampa Photographer Curtis Hixon Park

This lovely family has been in my life for a long time, and helped support those early days as only other twin moms can.  They are as kind and generous as they are beautiful.  This session we did an extended family session, always a favorite of mine to photograph.  We had limited time with family from all over only in town a few days, but thankfully we scheduled this because I think these types of memories are priceless for everyone involved! Curtis Hixon Park is getting ready for the holiday ice skating rink, so we stayed mostly in the treelined area up by the river and then on the top of the park area with views of the city and it was just gorgeous up there.  I even had a bit of fun with the family near the end and loved the result of getting that big of a group to jump together! The anticipation of the jump is as priceless of the jumps themselves! Lots of smiles and giggles just waiting for that moment!  We had fun discussing ideas for their colors for the group clothing, a challenge with a family of three let alone 10 people.  I loved the punch of color form the orange in particular on the little ones, and of course, when I saw S’s dress, I was singing “What does the Fox Say?” the entire session…in my head!
