Our Play Park {Flora Wylie Park, St. Petersburg} St. Petersburg Family Photographer

January 23, 2015

I am so grateful that my sweet and sassy 5 year old twins allow me to tag along (camera in hand) during our daily adventures. They even look in the general direction of my camera now and then…gasp! One of our favorite things to do is walk a couple blocks down to our “play park” before dinner. Some days we bike or bring a frisbee, other times we just bring a blanket and explore the mangroves & trees. This day was absolutely gorgeous. Winter skies are always so beautiful. I love everything about these photos. Their messy hair, play clothes, dirty shoes and silly faces make these the kind of memories I don’t want to forget. The kind I want to display on our walls, even! The everyday. Perfectly imperfect.

I first met this gorgeous little family last Winter, just after the arrival of their little girl Olivia! I knew right away I liked them…our daughter’s DO share the same name after all! I loved shooting their in-home newborn session. I don’t think I have ever had a client with such a stash of bows! Fast forward a year and Miss Olivia has sprouted into a beautiful little toddler! She was just as sweet spirited as the first time we met and is obviously one LOVED little lady. She never stopped smiling during their entire session, making my job a piece of cake! I just love watching families grow in front of my camera! I’m already looking forward to meeting up with the L family again soon!

I met the S family last spring during our annual Easter Bunny Mini Sessions. Miss Lucy had so much fun snuggling the bunnies and was amazing in front of the camera. Her sweet little smile is truly infectious! I was so happy to hear from them again this winter. We had a blast during their chilly session at Redington Long Pier (one of my favorite beach locations). It was pretty cool the day we met but their warm smiles and sweet snuggles made for a very lovey family photo session on the beach! The beautiful sky didn’t hurt either! I really love the way their session unfolded. Can’t you feel just the love?

The C Family’s Holiday in Straub Park {Downtown St. Petersburg Holiday Session} St. Petersburg Family Photographer

October 24, 2013

I love speaking with new clients about what their style before their session. The most regularly asked question is, “What should we wear?” I have so much fun offering styling suggestions and helping them decide what to wear. Sometimes though, the mom just knows what she’s doing, which was the case here. I mean, I was giddy as I saw the Cramer Family get out of their car!! They looked SO great and totally rocked their Holiday session. I really love how they didn’t go ‘over the top’ holiday on the colors, but they can certainly use these images on a Holiday card. The patterns were mixed perfectly and they all looked so happy and comfortable. We even got the littlest gal to giggle once or twice! Well done, Cramers!
