This sweet family is welcoming a baby boy in a few weeks! Catrina, Paul and big sister Ellie, can’t wait to meet their newest little family member, JD! We met up at Philippe Park for their maternity session and they did so great!! Ellie was so well-behaved and did great in front of the camera. Catrina is a glowing, beautiful mama and Paul is a proud Dad! Check the blog in July for newborn photos of JD after he makes his arrival! Can’t wait!
Happy ONE year anniversary to Mr. and Mrs. Peterson! Ashley and Devin said “I do” one year ago at SeaScapes Beach House at MacDill Air Force Base. Their wedding will forever be one of my favorites. Click here for their wedding blog post. I will always remember Ashley’s extra sweet spirit as a bride, the rain drops that fell during their ceremony that were quickly replaced by sunshine, Ashley’s brother officiating the wedding, Devin’s joy as he married his beautiful wife. It was the PERFECT day. In honor of their anniversary, I asked Ashley and Devin to look back through their wedding gallery and select a few photos that are most meaningful to them. I’ll share their responses under each photo. Happy first anniversary, you two! It’s been quite the year for your family… so excited that you’re now a family of 3!! Baby Jack is adorable!
“The picture of Devin and his Best Man is so special because that’s the moment he saw me and having Kapil’s support for that meant the world to him. The picture of me crying during the ceremony brings back all the feels for me. I was truly pouring out my heart reading my vows I had written him. I also love that you can see all my girls.”
Congratulations to all of the 2019 high school seniors! Such an exciting time! I photographed this beautiful lady a few weeks ago at the gorgeous Philippe Park in Safety Harbor. Ellie is a talented singer (she is one of the worship singers at our church!), super strong (she does crossfit competitions!) and will be graduating soon and heading to Florida State University in the Fall. Congratulations, Ellie!!
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!
I am so excited to introduce you to my friend, Jayme!! We met at a play date in our moms club last year. Her daughter and my son are less than one month apart! Jayme and I are both former teachers. I taught Kindergarten for five years and Jayme spent her teaching time in 1st grade. She creates helpful and creative products for teachers on her Teachers Pay Teachers site (she has over 120 products!). Since transitioning from being in the classroom to a SAHM, she shares helpful tips on motherhood, home life and classroom ideas on her blog – Teach Talk Inspire. I recently had the opportunity to capture some updated head shots and lifestyle branding images for this sweet mama. James and I had such a great morning with Jayme and her Little Miss. Scroll to the bottom for a few cute photos of the kiddos. If you’re a teacher and/or a toddler mama, I know you’ll love following Jayme! Her instagram stories are my favorite!
You can follow Jayme on her Teach Talk Inspire Blog and on her Teachers Pay Teachers site and on Instagram.
