Tallahassee Family Photography

You may remember my friends Tyson and Ashlee from their gorgeous maternity shoot last year. Well, I finally got to meet Baby P! We had our shoot planned for months. They came into town and we headed out to Maclay Gardens. What we didn’t count on was it being 95 degrees! This was the hottest summer shoot I’ve had to date. P was a trooper, but in the end he let us know that he was ready to go! We headed back to his grandparents’ house to rehydrate and snack. We finished up our shoot in their backyard just before the bottom fell out and it started pouring. I guess that’s the thing about Florida. It’s going to get HOT but Mother Nature always finds a way to cool us back off. Side note, Mother Nature also doesn’t really care about photo shoots. At least there were no alligators!

Even though our shoot time was brief, I love these images we got. Here’s just a small handful of what ended up being a beautiful set of images. Looking forward to watching this little guy grow!

I’m really loving shooting in the new studio and Baby M was one of the sweetest sleeping babies I have had in there to date! Just look at all those rolls! Couldn’t have asked for a more perfect morning and light!

Just wanted to post a quick sneak peek from Jana’s session at Maclay Gardens! With graduation right around the corner I wanted to hurry and get these posted for her. I loved getting to work with this gorgeous gal and loved even more that she decided to bring her prom dress as one of her outfits! Can’t wait to get together and show her the rest of her shoot tomorrow!

Gorgeous Liz braved the elements with me last week. We were stalked by at least two alligators, I stepped into a hidden pile of wood ants, and made her lie in a bed of bees. So you know, a typical shoot with me outdoors. She handled it all like a pro though and rocked her senior portrait session! She’s got so many good ones, it was hard to only show a few! Can’t wait to show the rest to her in the studio!

At our consultation, I knew Courtney was going to be a ton of fun to work with, but I had no idea just how amazingly cool she was. This gal brought the best props I’ve been able to use on a shoot. It was a whole van full, in fact! And I just love her vintage mixed with modern style. Let me say for certain – Courtney was the stylist on this shoot. I’m just glad I was there to capture her handiwork! I can’t wait to see what her future holds!

I got to hang with the beautiful and talented, Meghan, last week for her senior portraits. She’s one of those girls who I can’t imagine not smiling when I think of her. We had lots to chat about including Harry Potter and Star Trek. To top it off, she’s heading to my alma mater, The University of Alabama!  Now if I could just her into Doctor Who we’d be BFF!
