Spring 2018

Molly contacted me about maternity photography for their second baby boy. We met at my forever favorite park, Dorothy B. Oven, and walked and snapped pictures of her, her husband, and soon-to-be big brother, William.  The day was perfect despite rain ALL WEEK that kept us on our toes up until just before their session time. I’m so glad it held off for the morning, because the slightly overcast sky is always the best lighting in my opinion.

I watch the weather like a hawk since most of my family and maternity session are done outdoors. If you live here in Florida, you know how finicky the rain can be. Pouring one minute, dry and sunny the next.  Le sigh, it’s always an adventure.

Thank you for hanging with me Molly. Your photos turned out PERFECTLY.

Alex and Kyle, Maternity | Sarah Gray Photography, Tallahassee, FL maternity, newborn photographer

Alex and Kyle are expecting their first baby next month and I photographed them at Dorothy B. Oven Park. That park has been one of my favorites lately. I keep finding new little spots and nooks that I either hadn’t noticed before, or the groundskeepers are sneaky and keep adding. Either way, it’s been my go-to location this spring and I’m really loving it. As for these two, parents-to-be, they were awesome and I have no doubt they will be amazing parents  when their little girl arrives. Congratulations, Kyle and Alex! You have so much joy ahead of you!

Gantt Family Maternity Session | Sarah Gray Photography, Tallahassee, Florida Maternity, Newborn, and Family Photographer

What can I say? This family is so dear to me. I met them when their two oldest were infants and I had a baby their same age. We’ve been through this season of life together. All that motherhood has to offer, it’s ups and downs, joys and sorrows, frustrations and triumphs. It’s such a journey.

Years ago, as a new mommy, I prayed specifically that the Lord would provide a family, likeminded in their parenting, with children the same ages, who would all get along together (and oh, boy, the stories I could tell), to go through this life with. I prayed for a deep deep fellowship. I needed it so badly. It never ceases to amaze me just how perfectly He answered that cry of my heart. Seeing these images of these five, a bed full of precious children, with another one inside, brings so much joy to my heart. Ya’ll, God is so very good.

B&B, you are blessed beyond measure.

Maternity & Newborn

Expecting a little one is such an exciting time for your family.  Having that special time documented through photographs is a great way to capture the joy, excitement, appearance of your growing family.  Once your little one is here, having  him photographed is something every mother dreams of to remember that chubby little newborn look… those days go so fast.

Sarah Gray Photography - Maternity, baby, family photogrpher

Maternity Session:  Women have mixed feelings about their pregnant bodies.  Some women love their new shape while others don’t.  My wish is that each and every woman I photograph will see and feel as beautiful as they truly are.  I know that sounds incredibly cheesy, but people are really beautiful and I want YOU to see that in your maternity pictures.  I love photographing woman and am equipped to do so in a way that shows your most beautiful features.  You will love your maternity pictures.

$100 for a 30 minute session (family included if desired), at a location of your choice.  Online gallery for viewing and ordering prints and files.  Because of the nature of maternity pictures, many woman select only a few images to print (as opposed to many once your little bundle is here).  Knowing that, I’ve made the Ala Carte Price List available without the $200 order minimum required on all other session types.  There is no minimum order required for maternity session prints / files.  

Sarah Gray Photography - newborn, family photogrpher

Newborn Session:  There is nothing more precious that a brand new baby and I don’t know of a mother who wouldn’t want beautiful photographs to capture her chubby little newborn in his first few days.  The best time to photograph a newborn baby is when they are under two weeks of age, and more ideally, in the first week of life.  After two weeks, babies are a little harder to settle and things like colic and baby acne can start to flare up.  You can contact me at any time during your pregnancy to give me an estimated due date, I will make a tentative booking, and when you arrive home from the hospital with your brand new baby you can contact me to arrange a suitable time and day for your session.

$100, 1-3 hour session to allow plenty of time for feeding and cuddling, at your home.  Ordering session to view your images and place print and digital orders scheduled 2 weeks after your session.  Newborn Session packages can be viewed HERE and the Ala Carte price list ($200 order minimum) can be viewed HERE.

Also worth mentioning is that each of those sessions fee’s could be half off if you sign up for the Baby Plan.  It’s a great way to keep quality photography of your growing little one throughout their first year.  More info about the Baby Plan HERE.

It’s a… – Tallahassee, Florida Maternity Photographer

The Atkins are expecting another baby! Woohoo! A few months ago, they popped by an engagement session for a few minutes to snap their “pregnancy announcement” picture.

Mrs. Atkins told me they wanted to throw a little gender reveal party after their 20 week appointment. So fun. I was there to snap a few pictures of the big reveal and a few of the happy family. Each guest was encouraged to “dye” their drink either blue or pink depending on their baby gender prediction. Tryna’s mom and dad made the cupcakes for the party so they were the lucky first ones to find out the gender of their future grand-baby… a beautiful sentiment to the excited grandparents.

Be sure to look for their newborn pictures in another few months… and maybe some fun maternity shots even sooner.

The Albanese Family is growing again! Finally posting some of these on here and it’s long overdue. Milo is now here, is two weeks old and ready for his newborn session tomorrow morning. Yeah… better late than never to share his maternity pictures. It’ll just wet your appetite to see his newborn photos in the next few days.

This family is just beautiful, inside and out.

Lifestyle Newborn Portraits
April 30, 2018

Sarah, Jeff, and big brother Caleb welcomed baby Micah to the family last month. I was excited to be back and photograph another precious baby for this family.  I’ve known Sarah since college when we worked together with the youth group at our church. Fun fact, I’ve been to Haiti with her and have shared some incredible memories serving the people of that country.

Sarah and Jeff set such a peaceful tone in their home and it was a pleasure to be back and photograph them again. Congratulations to you both and to Caleb. What a blessing for him to have a brother.

Tallahassee, Florida | Lifestyle College Graduation Portraits
June 2018 Graduation

This gorgeous girl is my step-sister. We walked around Florida State University last week and took some pretty incredible graduation pictures. The weather was spot on, some clouds and then some sun. We started at Ruby Diamond’s Wescott Fountain and made our way over to Collegetown. I love the laid back nature of senior sessions. We walk, we take pics, and we end up with a great variety of backdrops. Tallahassee has some wonderful little spots if you’re willing to explore to find them.

I love you, Laura, and am so glad we got to do these. I loved the company and adventure just as much as the beautiful pictures we created. Laura2018FSUGradWEB-4Laura2018FSUGradWEB-2Sarah Gray Photography: Tallahassee, Florida lifestyle graduation photographerLaura2018FSUGradWEB-3Laura2018FSUGradWEB-5Laura2018FSUGradWEB-6Laura2018FSUGradWEB-7Laura2018FSUGradWEB-8Laura2018FSUGradWEB-9Laura2018FSUGradWEB-10Laura2018FSUGradWEB-11Laura2018FSUGradWEB-12Laura2018FSUGradWEB-13Laura2018FSUGradWEB-14Laura2018FSUGradWEB-15Laura2018FSUGradWEB-16Laura2018FSUGradWEB-17
