Valentine Minis were so fun this year! I had some adorable kiddos come into the studio, and we made some magic ;) Check out some faves….
I made my way out to Riverview this week to meet this beautiful baby girl! I had the pleasure of meeting her Mom and Dad at their maternity session a few weeks ago. They were the sweetest, and so excited to welcome Baby B into this world! Her nursery was GORG, by the way… so we did the majority of her session in there. She was so easy peasy, slept like a champ, and made my job a breeze ;)
Congrats, guys! I can’t wait to see this beauty grow!! <3
I say it all the time… but I love when my families come back to me every year. Once these babies start to hit toddlerhood, they get to know me as Miss Katie and we build such a bond! The smiles come easier and easier with every passing session. I get to know their quirks, and what gets them hammed up for the camera!
I took the C family to my favorite forest in Land O Lakes, and had so much fun! Here are a few of my favorite frames from their session!
2018 year in review!
When was the last time you had a picture taken with your parents? Your siblings? That wasn't an iPhone shot from Thanksgiving dinner?!
I LOOOOVE when people contact me for extended family sessions!! It's such an awesome way to capture EVERYONE together!! We get so many great combinations fo shots...the cousins, the aunts and uncles, grandparents etc. This family was no exception! We took the whole gang down to Curtis Hixon Park in Downtown Tampa, on a gorgeous Saturday morning. The kids were amazing, and the adults weren't too bad either ;)
Let me know when you are ready to get YOUR whole fam together! xo
I love love love having clients that come back year after year, baby after baby. I feel like I become part of the family!! And I love that the older siblings know me as Miss Katie, and there's no warming up time for a stranger. It makes the process and experience seamless, and the images are so genuine!
So, say hello to this amazing big sister and her new sweet baby brother. I adore this family! And this is probably one of my favorite newborn sessions to date <3
The first year FLIES by. Feels like just last month I was doing this sweet girl's newborn session! She had a Twinkle Little Star theme for her party - so we kept the theme for her 1st Birthday Session! We attempted a cake smash - and she did NOT want to even look at it, let alone touch it! Lol... FYI, that's totally normal. I feel like most parents come into a cake smash thinking their child is going to destroy that cake! It's 50/50... some go to town, others touch once and that's IT! Regardless we got some adorable shots this day.. Happy Birthday Big Girl!
We are only 1 month into the new year and I've had my hands on the squishiest babies EVER! I love all of my sessions...all of my families... but newborn sessions are where it's at ;) Check out these adorable faces!! And, if you are considering booking a newborn session - it's never too early in your pregnancy to get on my calendar! I only take a few a month!
I can't believe it's 2018 already!! And as I sit here and plan the year out - I can already tell it is going to FLY!!! I've had some amazing sessions during the last 2 weeks to kick the year off. And I just know its going to a great one!
I finally (after 3 years!) decided to update and change my website. No fluff. No frills. Just me and my work. And now a blog! I've tried this a few times... but I am DETERMINED to blog my butt off this year! So every Thursday, this is where I'll be. New sessions, new ideas, upcoming events, the whole 9.
So, join me! Keep an eye out for new content! Show me some love on Facebook and Instagram! And if you've never had a session with me -- what are you waiting for?! Give me a shout and let's get together :)
