I loved photographing Catrina and Paul’s maternity session at Philippe Park a few weeks ago and now baby JD is here! Ellie is the sweetest big sister and I know she’s going to take great care of her little brother! JD was a model baby during his newborn session. We got so many great photos!
Do you have a longtime friend that you may not see for a year or two but then when you do, it’s like no time has passed? Kara is that person for me. We first met in high school when I was 13. She has the kindest, most encouraging, gentle heart with a side of sass and humor. We spent our high school years (only 3, since she’s one year older than me!) laughing, creating yearbooks, having sleepovers, going to youth group, and making so many memories together. Kara moved to Fort Myers after high school graduation for college and later met her future husband, John. They now live in beautiful, sunny Fort Myers with their handsome little man JJ and their newest addition, Emmett. Two beautiful boys under two! Kara is supermama! I wish we lived closer so that our boys could play together more but it was such a treat to go on a little road trip last month so that I could photograph this sweet family. Congratulations, Kara and John, your family is perfect and we are so excited for you!!
Dear world, meet beautiful little Molly! Her parents, Kristen and Joel, are smitten with this beauty!! I was so, so excited when I got Kristen’s email shortly after Molly was born. I typically get my newborn clients from referrals, past clients, and google searches for Tampa newborn photographer. Kristen’s inquiry email was unique.
She wrote, “Hi there! I am interested in learning about your newborn portraits. I initially found your blog when I was googling frank breech csections since I found out our daughter was frank breech. She ended turning at the end so I could deliver her naturally but I loved reading your story, and hearing about your experience.”
Ah! I shared our birth story on my blog after James was born and I never thought I’d meet a new local friend/client because of it! It was so heart warming to talk to Kristen and share our experiences of trying to flip a breech baby (chiropractor, swimming, laying upside down on a stiff board, yep…). Her efforts were successful and she was able to deliver her sweet Molly. And sweet she is!! Look at this little lady. She SMILED when I took their family portrait! Adorable. Kristen and Joel, I am so excited for you two and am so thankful that you invited me in to capture this most special time in your family’s life. Molly is perfect!
Welcome to the world, baby Noah! Ohhh, this newborn session was such a treat! I photographed Lisa and Brandon’s wedding last May and less than a year later, I was in their new home, photographing their brand new baby boy! I love photographing growing families! I’m so thankful for every opportunity to have my clients in front of my camera again.
Congratulations, Lisa and Brandon. Noah is perfect!!
Lauren and Jarrod welcomed the sweetest baby boy a few weeks ago. Welcome to the world, Calvin! I was so eager to meet this little man after photographing his parent’s maternity session in November. At the time, they didn’t know if their growing baby was a little boy or girl. Once Calvin made his entrance, they were so excited to hear IT’S A BOY! I went over to Lauren and Jarrod’s house for Calvin’s newborn session when he was just seven days old and he slept the entire time! Calvin was a dream baby to photograph. So excited for this sweet family!
