Brooksville, Fla. | Chinsegut Hill | The Arcaro’s

“The most important thing in the world is family and love.”
My photography clients are always so fabulous to work with. That’s true of my session with the Arcaro family, too! I heard from Danielle last spring when she saw my work from one of her co-workers.  I am so grateful for the referral because these three ladies are such a delight to be around.

Our session was the weekend of Thanksgiving.  While the weather was fine, it was these ladies and their little fur babies that made this photoshoot such a joy.

Spring Hill, FL |Anniversary photo session of John and Margret

1

It is always a pleasure getting to know clients who have such a long lasting love for one another.   These two have been married for 44 years and have had the blessing of 5 children.

John and Margaret met and married while John was stationed in Germany.  He was serving in the army and eventually they ended up in upstate New York. For many years they enjoyed life there, but eventually moved to sunny Florida.

Five kids and nine beautiful grandkids later,  they still enjoy spending their free time together, traveling, and bringing their family together.  Spending time laughing, and taking it day by day is their secret to success and staying friends after 44 years of marriage.   They have created an incredible family, filled with laughter, hugs, and great German food!.  Cheers to many more years together.

Mark 10:9 – “Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”

Pine Island Beach | Weeki Wachee, FL | Chris & Deanna beach themed photo session

27These two lovers are getting married in the next couples weeks.  I am so excited for them and can’t wait to see what the future holds.

This session was taken before the big questions was popped and I just want to showcase their gorgeous photos.  Beach photos are so fun and I encourage anyone who loves the beach to invest in a photo shoot at one.

Deanna and Chris, I wish you love and happiness.

It brings great joy to my heart when I see these kids.  Aside from seeing them when I photograph them, their family holds a special place in my families hearts as well. I look forward to seeing all our children grow together as we continue our friendship.

Logan and Emerson have grown up so much since their last session with me.  Emerson was a bit unsure about her first session, however I say the entire family did a stellar job.  Let’s look back on a few of those images.


 


Emerson is now walking and talking.  She will be celebrating her 2nd birthday in the next few months. How adorable is this little one?  Seriously, that adorable hair and gorgeous set of eyes!!!

 


Logan is now in Kindergarten and will be starting soccer in the Fall. He has such a great personality and had me laughing the entire session with his silliness.

 


Always a fun time with these kids.  I love their energy and how cute they are when together. Nothing better than a siblings bond.


 


Props to Mom (Kendall) for making this blog post filled with just the pretties of colors.  I just love the way you coordinated everyone for both past and recent session.

Downtown Tampa |Senior Photography Session | Hailee Rose| Nature Coast High School Graduate

Tampa Senior Photographer

Welcome back to my bloggy blog world!  This beautiful girl is Hailee.  A graduate from Nature Coast Technical School. As you can see from the balloons she is holding, we are celebrating her and how she is no longer a high-schooler!  Way to go, girl! Class of 2018. While attending Nature Coast, Hailee was a NCT Shark cheerleader for ALL FOUR YEARS.  She spent her free time working and spending quality time with family and friends.   These balloons gave us a headache.  There was a little bit of wind and of course the balloons took the brunt of it.  After several takes, we finally got that “wow” image.



In the fall, Hailee will be an official college student attending a state college, PHSC. While attending school there, she will be majoring in Emergency Services.


I loved the outfits that Hailee brought to the shoot. For example, that adorable blue dress that looked so great with and without her cap and gown. But check out this simple and casual look that complimented her so well.



The cute flowing pants paired so nicely with this off the shoulder top.  It added just the right amount of sophistication and playfulness that exemplifies her personality.

To say we had fun at this session was an understatement.  While I always have a fun time with all my clients when shooting, this one made my cheeks hurt.  Hailee has such a fun personality and is such a joy to be around. It is so important to have a great time during a shoot like this, or any session for that matter.  But when it is a one on one, just relax and be you!  That is exactly what she did.  She came with some poses in mind, and we used them as a starting point and expanded from them.



With the package that she chose, it entitled her to a couple different locations. Her first location had to be dog friendly so she can bring along her 6 month old pup Chloe.  GAAAAHHHH, how precious are these two!! I’m such a dog lover, so when anyone wants to bring their fur-babies, I’M TOTALLY GAME!



I’m a sucker for black and white photos, but let me also show you some color!



When I asked Jenny, Hailee’s mom if she could change one thing about the session, she said, ” I wish I didn’t procrastinate so long in getting them done.”  This is so important for anyone who is interested in getting Senior Sessions done.  Especially when using the package Jenny chose for the extra locations for Hailee.  We had 2 separate days that we had to book.

I asked Hailee if she had any tips for other girls getting their hair and make up done for their sessions. She replied with…natural!  I totally agree with that.  It also helps that your mom is a hair stylist.  So Jenny was able to get that girl just perfect and natural looking.  Head on over to Southern Dreams Salon to check out all the amazing things they offer there.  It is an adorable shop with so much more than hair.



I wanted to give Jenny the opportunity to write something to her daughter.

I am beyond proud of you Hailee Rose and all of your accomplishments this far. You have overcome so many obstacles and diversions and somehow remained true to yourself! You are an amazing, beautiful, young lady with an incredibly strong will.  You are the wildest soul I know and have the ability to make anyone laugh. Your smile is contagious and I am so blessed to be your mom.  It is amazing to see how you’ve grown so far and I look forward to watching and cheering you on as you achieve your goals and chase your dreams everyday.     Love, Mom

Here is proud mom, Jenny and her graduate, Hailee.

Brooksville Fl. photo session | Chinsinghut Hill |Trey & Damon

Hernando County child photographerOh how I just adore the kids I’m blogging about today. I’m lucky enough to say I’ve been photographing them for 3 years now! I truly can’t believe how much the children have grown and changed since I first met them.Just last year we had our session at Pine Island.  Let’s take a stroll down memory lane, shall we?

Aren’t these two just ADORABLE!  Their personalities are exploding when I see them.  It is a true blessing to have such well behaved, fun and full of life families to work with.Back to this year’s session now, let’s just dive right into these two and let me update you on what they have been up to.


These goofballs aside from monkeying around, laughing and having a great time day in and day out, have been spending their summer hanging out, watching movies, going on their family vacation and as usual, hitting the hockey rink.  Trey is 9 and still involved with hockey and Damon is now 4 and has taking a liking to guitar.When Tiffany (Mom) called me to take their photos again, I don’t think I could have scheduled them fast enough. And as for the day of the shoot, I had so much fun! They had a pretty great time, too.  Aside from it being the typical Florida summer weather, I think we got some awesome shots before the sweating started to show.I asked Tiffany what she enjoys about her photo sessions with KGP.  She replied, “It’s very relaxed. It is always nice when your photographer embraces your kids active ways.”  Thank you Tiffany.  It is my goal to provide exactly that to my clients.Okay, enough text. Check out some more photos of these two cuties.

Sam, Nicole & Co.

I just adore the family I’m blogging about today. I’m lucky enough to say I’ve been photographing them for 3 years now! I truly can’t believe how much the children have grown and changed since I first met them. Actually there were only 3 kids when I first met Sam and her wife Nicole.

Nicole “momma”, loves baking anything and everything!! And they all love eating it! I will have to remember this for the next shoot.  A photo shoot for some baked goods 😉

Sam “Mopa”- has a love for every sport! Her favorite team is the University of Tennessee!

And, it goes without saying, Sam and Nicole have become some of my favorite return clients. It’s hard to not feel this way when their kids just light me up when I see them.  Especially my friend Kolt. Kolt is the oldest sibling at age 10. This boy has me doing such wacky things to keep his attention on me.  Kolt is non-verbal and has special needs so I love to  sing to him and even makes “zombie” voices getting him to laugh! This past time I went all out and even jumped over a stool to get him to laugh.  From what Sam tells me, I’m one of the few people he’s smiled for.  I take great pride in that and I’m totally tooting my horn. Toot Toot.

No, but seriously, this kid is a beam of light and shines on every person he meets. Touches your heart in a different way, can’t explain it more than that!

Next in line is Charliee.  She has the biggest heart and at age 6, she is the family princess that loves unicorns and her brothers! She does an amazing job being sister and best friend.

Now on to Maddox.  This little man is one tough cookie.  His poor little leg was stung by a wasp…that is right a wasp.  He cried for 2 minutes and then he was back to taking pictures. At age 2, he is my hero!  I would have been down for the count if that happened to me.  Sam tells me that he is their daredevil who goes 100 mph! He also loves all sports!

And last, but definitely not least, this little peanut is Dax. Dax is 2 months old and their newest addition.  He loves to smile at his siblings, but his favorite thing to do is  eat. Me too Dax, me too!

I normally don’t blog much about my mini sessions, however I wanted to introduce my followers to this family and their adorable addition.

Please enjoy a few more photos from the session.
