Tampa Childrens Photographer | Sneak Peek - Merry and Vince

Had fun with Merry and Vince today, their little one arrives in only three weeks. They are a Tiny Treasures customer, so I'll be back very soon to take pics of the new baby.

Here's a sneak peek to hold you over.

Tampa Childrens Photographer | Sneak Peek - Hennebery Family

Today was my very first shoot with twins. In all these years, I have never photographed a set of twins, isn't that odd? The funny thing is that I have a set of 16 year old twins scheduled for next weekend too. Twins two weeks in a row.

Today was a lot of fun, wow, have I forgotten how fast 3 year old boys are ----- times two. They were a little shy and really made us work for a smile, but I think we managed to get some good shots of them and mom and dad were great!

Here's a sample of some word art. These great pieces come in 20x20 square prints. I have lots of other definitions; miracle, family, happiness, perfection, boy, girl, adore, wonder, love, play, giggle, joy, loud and of course delightful.

Trash the Dress

I have been dying to do a Trash the Dress Session. You know you want to do it too. Get it dirty, roll around in the mud, play in the ocean.

Trash the dress isn't just for brides, you can trash your prom dresses too.

You really have two choices:

1. Suffocate it in plastic and throw it in the closet where it's destined to just take up space.
2. Have a great time trashing it and create some amazing, fun artwork in the process.

This is the portrait session where you can let it all hang out with wild abandon. Never have you had a session where you didn't have to worry about your clothes and your facial expressions, but now you can. Toss em both out the window and live a little, laugh a lot and just have fun.

Firework Fun

I love the 4th of July, not only because it's my bday :-), but I love the very act of celebrating this great country. We went to our local mall last night for the Brandon Blast. It was nice because it was within 10 minutes of our home and there was a thunderstorm brewing. I was a little disappointed in the show - it only lasted about 20 minutes. I guess it's hard to compare a local mall firework display to that of Disney World on the 4th of July. Disney's nightly fireworks last considerably longer than this show did, but I guess I shouldn't complain. The kids enjoyed it and I fired off my camera for over 100 frames.

Here's my favorite shot of the night. I love how you can see the crescent moon in the upper right hand corner.

New Marketing Material

Yesterday afternoon I received a package in the mail with my new brochures. They turned out fabulous and look so professional. My marketing genius is Kori Clark from Kori Clark Designs

Kori designed my logo, business cards, thank you cards and now my brochures. To say I have total faith in her abilities would be an understatement. She's is very talented and super friendly and easy to work with. I'm very happy to have such a partner in my business success.

She does so much more than just business marketing, she's an incredible artist and makes lots of hand painted goodies as well as stationary items. Check out her website for more details at Kori Clark Designs.

Here are some samples of what she's done for me.

Here's an example of her stationary work. Kori designed and printed the invitation to my daughters birthday and high school graduation party. It was two sided, one glossy, one flat and I had so many compliments on how gorgeous it was. Kori can do anything you need, just drop her a line.
