Comfort in time of Happiness and Sorrow

Our third series in our Twelve by Twelve Project is the topic “Comfort.”

Documenting the lives of the families that I’m surrounded by is one of the most rewarding careers. I never imagined I would feel so great about giving this gift to others. From the moment, Mom and Dad call me to say they’re expecting and would like to book Maternity, Birth and Newborn photography sessions, to the moment they see their newborns face- it is some of the most magical, happy moments I am so honored to be a part of.

Wall Display Guide for Your Home

You went through the trouble of picking out your outfit, coordinating the colors, and picking out the best Westchase photographer to capture your families personality now its time for you to pick out the photos that you’d like to print.

Lets talk about how to choose the proper size of photo to purchase for your walls at home. Look at the wall space that you’d like to hang your photos on. Chances are its a pretty big space to fill. An 8 x 10 printed photo is not going to fill that space so we need to think bigger. An 8 x 10 doesn’t give enough attention to the photos that you paid for and had taken by a professional photographer. An 8 x 10 is for a small frame on your desk at work or on your bedside table, not the best for displaying your newborn’s images when he/she was 5 days new. So lets think bigger. I always tell my clients they should order one print or canvas that is at least 20 x 30 from their session.

Below you’ll find three images of a Wall Display I did. Each display has the same three pictures but each display shows different sizing. I show these images to my clients to let them see how different the print sizing is and how beautiful larger sizing can be.

Fun Facts about Your Newborn Neighborhood Photographer

I’ve always had an About Me Section on my website but recently was “challenged” to share some unique facts about me. As Tampa photographers, we are so use to talking to clients about what they love and how they feel. I’m a big talker so I don’t have a problem sharing my day to day things but really, I haven’t gotten into those fun facts about me that rarely come up in regular conversation…so here we go!

1. My favorite Movie is Dirty Dancing. I use to watch Dirty Dancing on my VHS Tape (which was recorded from TV) so many times that the tape broke!

Tampa’s Where my Heart Is -Neighborhood Photographer

Our second series in our Twelve by Twelve Project is the topic “Home is Where the Heart Is.”

Chris and I have been looking at purchasing a new home either in the Tampa or Palm Harbor area so this topic was perfect for me this month. We truly want to make our first home a place of comfort, to make it our own. We have a few “must have’s” that we require. One, being a pool because I LOVE to relax and sun next to the water. I grew up with a pool and the last three years of not having even a community pool has been torture. I don’t always have the time to pack up and go to the beach so to be able to go in my backyard and relieve some stress for 30 minutes will more than suffice.Photo of loft on second floor

Professional Newborn Photo Session Gallery in Tampa

As you can see, I absolutely adore photographing newborns!

I always suggest getting newborn photographs within the first five to ten days after the birth of your child. I know its a hectic moment for parents and probably the last thing you want to do is leave your house but its very important to consider why I take photos within those first ten days of life. Those early days of your newborn’s life are life changing. By scheduling your newborn photography session in those first ten days, I am able to capture all the feelings and emotions that you and your newborn are going through.

Newborn Photographer in Tampa

Newborns change a lot within just the first two weeks, more than you realize. Getting your newborn photographs captured as soon as possible ensures that I capture that newborn look and all those special moments. Newborns have a natural curl to them when they’re born and each day, they naturally start to uncurl, taking away that “fresh” look.

On your session day, I’ll capture photographs of just your newborn and all his/her adorable features including eyes, mouth, nose, feet, hands. As well as images of your newborn with you, your partner and sibling as well.

Just think about how beautiful and unique a photo of your first child with your second newborn will look hanging on your wall in your living room. It tugs at your heart strings and makes you feel happy no matter how stressful or rough your day was.

You can’t forget how beautiful and special your first family photograph with your newborn will be. I’ve had Momma’s not want to take photos because they didn’t feel pretty but have seen them cry when they first see the photos of them with their newborn. Each momma was so happy I talked them into doing them because they are beautiful and now they have proof of how in love they were with their newborn that morning.
