Merry Christmas! - {Tampa Bay Family Photographer}

Since I can't mail a Christmas card to you all, I figured I'd share it here!   We had a lot of fun doing this card.  I love our family photo, especially the ones where we obviously need to was some upper lips!  

And as the card says, all the best wishes for a Merry Christmas and a New Year filled with lots of laughter!  From my family to you and yours....

A Family - {Lutz Family Photographer}

I was so happy to be able to photograph the A-Family this past weekend.   I have to thank Rose for suggesting this barn nearby (another new location - yeah!).  Not only was it a great rustic backdrop for a family of men (with the exception of Mom), there was a gorgeous gravel road surrounded by Florida pine and scrub leading back to the owner's residence.  What a great quiet and secluded feeling spot.   From there, we took the session back to the A-Family home.  I want to be adopted!  The back yard dock was unbelievable!  The view, the construction, everything.  Of course I'm not surprised.  You've seen what Rose can do with a location here before.  This is THE Rose of A & E Events.  If you ever need an event planner/decorator, she's your person!  Ok...on to the pictures...

This is that gravel road I was talking about.  I would totally love to live back there!

At the risk of embarrassing these guys, I have to say not only are these three handsome young brothers, but they are also three of the most respectful and well behaved young men I've met.  Mom and Dad are surely proud.

L Family - {Carrollwood Family Photographer}

I got to shoot the L family last weekend.  We shot at a totally new location and I LOVE it!  You get a really big open field feel and a beautiful dock as well.  Of course it doesn't hurt that they are one beautiful family!   At the end of their session, Gary's sister and her family joined the party for some extended family photos.

Donovan and Family - {Tampa Children's Photographer}

So much fun seeing Donovan and his family again this past weekend.  He's gotten so big - but of course - he's getting ready to turn 1!

Big brother.

So much love!

Ivy is such a sweet, protective dog.  She was always right by the children's side (or underneath them when they crawled all over her!)

I love this shot.  Being the parents of teenagers, this is a moving picture for me. He's crawling, then walking and growing up...all too quickly!
