I loved meeting this gorgeous family this past month. Lettuce Lake Park is actually one of my favorite Tampa photo locations. I love it in the morning and well before sunset, or even at sunset. It really was the perfect spot for this young man’s graduation pictures and Tampa family portraits. Getting photos done even when your children are grown is so important to your family’s legacy in photos. You can’t just stop at kindergarten. Family memories happen all the time, not just when the kids are little. I always welcome high school seniors to incorporate family photos at a portion of their photo session. It gives them the option to celebrate their achievements, but also have lasting photographic memories of this time before their adult lives really begin.
Here are a few of my favorite Tampa family portraits from this Lettuce Lake Park photo session:
One of my favorite colors to photograph families in is royal blue. Set against the greenery, the royal blue definitely pops. Whereas, I feel teals and turquois and any blue with green undertones gets lost againse the greenery. Even worse, it can really make your skin tones relfect all the greenery, too. However, every skin tone looks great in that jewel tone as well. The complementary blue and gold in the saris this lovely mother and daughter are wearing is about the most beautiful clothing I have ever been able to photograph as well.
This session was so fun and relaxed. While the wanted traditional portraits, the few images of them just connecting with each other have my heart. Even older children need to be photographed, so don’t stop the annual photo sessions after your kids are in kindergarten. Celebrate the milestones in between, too. What a treasure for this family and in particular for their grown children to have these Tampa family portraits to hang in their own homes some day, too! If you are looking to update your own Tampa family portraits, let’s talk. I am now booking August and beyond for 2021!
