Cup of baby?

Well, little "G's" mommy offered him up so I could try out my fun new prop. When G's dad heard I was coming to try out a prop, he guessed I was going to bring a ring of fire! Ummmmmm.....not quite!
This little guy is the man of a thousand faces, but he has given me one face in particular BOTH times I have photographed him, and it's my favorite. I was so tickled when I pulled them off the camera and saw the face in the second picture. "T" you really should think about trademarking that or something! I love this kid!

I am not above using it to get some good shots! Luckily, neither was this little guy's mommy! He got M&M's and a lollipop for being a little trooper as I dragged him around USF campus. We even had some over friendly ducks that kept chasing us! So, to brighten your Monday morning, here's Mr. "B".
*Mommy, I am about halfway done proofing these, so they should be up soon!

This one has a vintage action run on's not your eyes!

May is for Mommies...

Mother's day is in May, and in honor of it, I will be doing a special event. Mini sessions in Old Hyde Park Village in South Tampa. Old Hyde Park has lovely brick wall backdrops as well as some lush vegetation and pretty little courtyards. It is a picture perfect place to get a shot of, or with your child(ren).
The mini sessions will be 15 minutes long each, and the session fee is waived. Standard print pricing applies, but there is no obligation to buy prints. I will have a special package worked up as well which will offer a savings to anyone willing to sign the model release form to allow me to use images from the session both here and on my website.
For each 15 minute slot, I can photograph a single child, sibling set or immediate family. However, those wishing to add additional family members (aunt so and so, or grandma this and such) can make me aware at the time of booking and purchase an additional 15 minute slot for $25.
The sessions will be held on Sunday, May 6th between the hours of 4pm and 6:30pm. Bookings will be made on a first come, first served basis by emailing me at Please specify what time you would like to come in the email, as well as which family members will be photographed, along with children's ages.
Those reserving a spot will be sent an email with further instructions about where to meet and clothing suggestions.
Are you looking forward to the craziness? I am!

Thought little baby "C"'s mommy could use a few peaceful images today. She is not just mommy to this beauty, but also adorable, spunky 21 month old triplets. Yep, you read it right. Three toddlers and a newborn. All in all she seems to be taking it in stride, but she is definately supermom! Hope you enjoy your preview mommy. I'll probably be sharing more from this session soon!

Coming soon to a family I know....

A beautiful little girl! I have known this couple for several years and they have been trying for a baby for a while. They are so excited that their little girl is finally on her way. I have to be careful with the maternity shots I put on here since I don't want moms to feel uncomfortable, but here's a couple from their session. Oh, check out that big 'ol doggie! They have a few of them!

My guy

Just a few of my little man on Easter. He had such fun looking for eggs this year. I am blown away again by how big he's getting!
The Loot:

I don't have a winner yet for my April contest (see previous post)! Doesn't anyone have a baby for me?

April contest!

I have a new prop I am dying to use, but in looking in my current bookings, I don't have anyone who fits the bill. SO I am opening it up as a free session!I am telling you, it is CUTE! But I am not going to spoil the surprise. Here are the entry rules:

  • Baby must be between 4-10 months, sitting up alone, but not yet crawling (early sitters/late crawlers are welcome).
  • Must be available for a weekday session between April 23 and April 27.
  • Parent needs to sign consent to use the images on my website and blog.
  • The first person who can meet these qualifications and leaves a comment here will be the winner (make sure you leave an email address or something so I know who you are).

I guarantee you'll love this!

Because I know you're excited...

Here is your promised preview "C" and "B". I promise your gallery will be up very soon. Congrats to this couple who are getting hitched at the end of May!
This last image is one of my favorites, I have been going back and forth between color and B&W all afternoon. So I threw both in, because luckily, I don't have to make the final call!!!
