The G Family is growing fast - St Petersburg Maternity Photographer

March 5, 2015

St Petersburg Maternity Photographer

As a St Petersburg Maternity Photographer, I love when I get the chance to shoot a family who is expecting the second addition to their family. After you have that first experience bringing a newborn into the world, that second time is (usually) so much easier. When I get families that I know are expecting their second, I tend to anticipate a laid back, fun time capturing special moments before their family is plus one more. The G Family did not disappoint during our fun session near downtown St Petersburg at the Marina. Mom and Dad were so relaxed and big sis, couldn’t wait to meet her new brother. My favorite part of the session is when we gave sister the chalk board that said “big sister” and told her what it said.  That proud grin tells you all you need to know about how she feels about it. Can’t wait for you to see their newborn session, the proud grins were even bigger.

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!


The S Family at Redington Pier- St Petersburg Beach Family Photography

St Petersburg Beach Family Photography

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 on Redington Shores (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!
