Announcing "Baby Mo's" arrival in February...

Gabriel and Me-Me wanted an outdoor session to announce their baby's arrival in February.  They nicknamed their baby, Baby Mo'... short for Moody.  The images below (except for the middle one) was used for their announcement cards.  Congratulations Gabriel and Me-Me!  I'm happy for you!

Jace and his family's portraits

Our final day in Tampa took us to a beautiful park on MacDill Air Force Base where we took family portraits.  Jace, his immediate family, and two grandmothers are included in the portraits taken at this beach setting in South Florida.

Jace's 1st birthday cake celebration

Jace, my great grandson, turned one on August 15 and we celebrated at Carraba's in Tampa.  I know its hard to believe I'm a great grandmother as I don't look that old! :)  What's hard to believe is my daughter Angela is a grandmother!  Here are a few of Victoria's (Jace's mother) favorites for your viewing pleasure!

HoneyBun and her boyfriends

I would tease HoneyBun's owner after we babysitted HoneyBun and tell her that Toto was HoneyBun's boyfriend as Toto seemed particularly fond of her.  But recently when we babysitted HoneyBun, Toto didn't even want to sit in the same chair with HoneyBun so looks like Charlie is now her boyfriend.  These images show HoneyBun as she poses so cute on her chair prop, and a couple images of Toto looking at her (2nd image) and Charlie sitting with her in the chair (last image).  Enjoy!

Cooper's 4-year-old portraits

I wish every child's session was like Cooper's!  Not many 4 year olds can hold up for a 1-hour session!  It helped that we had 5 outfits and plenty of props to keep Cooper occupied. :)  The session's main goal was to provide the client with a variety of images for a large collage canvas for the living room.  I have included the clients' favorite images along with the collage that we ordered.  Thanks Cooper for being a good sport and we hope to see you again next year when you turn 5!

Natalie turns 6 and Andrew turns 4

I was glad we were able to photograph Natalie and Andrew at their grandparents' home as it makes for fond memories to look back on when they get older!  It was fun to watch their expressions as they shared drink sipping on a picnic table!  Natalie was having so much she didn't want to stop; she really enjoyed getting photographed as you can tell by the client's favorites that I have included below!  I love the first one below of them looking at each other which happened to be her mom's idea.  Thanks Natalie and Andrew for the opportunity to capture this special time in your little lives!

A beautiful Mother's Day gift!

This session turned out totally different that what we had planned.  We planned on one studio and then one outdoor pose, but when Chante mentioned a walking away portrait on a road, we ended up with some fabulous walking/running shots!  By the way, this session was a surprise Mother's Day gift for the cousins' grandmother (from their two daughters), and what a kind way to honor their mother on Mother's Day!  I have included the clients' favorites for your viewing pleasure.  Enjoy!

What happens when 3 BFF graduates get together...

After Ebony approached me about doing a short session for her and two fellow graduates and best friends I was so looking forward as I love these type of sessions!  These images will be such good memories years down the road when they recall this special time in their lives.  Thanks Destiny, Ebony, and Quesia for being game for doing crazy jumping photos I predict will be pretty popular!  You set the stage for some fun photo ops with CTM Photography! At the request of the one the moms, I replaced the background in the image below which is one of my favorites along with others included below.  Enjoy!
