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.

Dorothy B. Oven Park

Lindsey contacted me about doing family photos and some personal branding / headshots for her blog and doula services, Mother Rising. Her three children were full of life and energy and her girls had the most precious personalities. One was a snuggler, the other was full of all the two year old personality you’d expect and her son gave me some of the best son-and-mama pictures I’ve taken.
I’ll be announcing details about upcoming spring mini sessions next week. Be sure you’re following on facebook and instagram to be the first to hear and sign up for the limited session slots.

Zoe, 6 months

This sweet girl is getting cuter and cuter. Her family lives in Atlanta and I get the blessing of photographing her every three months (as part of the baby plan) when she’s down here to visit grandparents. We met at my favorite local park, Dorothy B. Oven Park, and spent some time under the beautiful oak trees taking pictures of her newest milestones. She’s a doll. Also, her mama is dear to my heart. When my own girls were babies, she was a blessing for a few hours each Monday morning so I could get out of the house and run errands, go sneak off somewhere and edit photos, or just take a breather. A wise woman once told me that one of the ways you successfully make it though the early years of parenting your sweet babies it by taking a lot of breaks. That advice has proven to be one of the many keys to making those earliest years most enjoyable. I love my babies hard, but that doesn’t mean I don’t need mommy-time too. Zoe’s mama was the vessel that provided those moments of respite for me early on and I am forever thankful for her.

Happy 6 months, Zoe!

3 Month Zoey | Sarah Gray Photography, Dorothy B. Oven Park, Tallahassee, FL Baby Plan Photographer

Zoey, Zoey, Zoey. You petite little thing. This doll baby was a sleepyhead for her session. I don’t usually get to photograph sleeping 3 month olds but poor Zoey just couldn’t keep those sweet blue eyes open for a minute longer. Is there anything so peaceful as a sleeping baby? I think not.

PS-Dorothy B. Oven Park has been my jam lately. That place never disappoints.

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!

Rivers, 9 months | Sarah Gray Photography, Tallahassee Florida Baby Plan Photographer

Little Rivers is 9 months old.  She’s a precious little doll and I’m loving watching her grow.  She has some of the softest looking brown hair and it reminds me of my own little brown haired baby.  We did her 9 month photos are beautiful Dorothy B. Oven Park. Happy nine months, Rivers!

Mommy and Me – My Little Reider is 4 Months | Sarah Gray Photography featuring Ais Portraits

I am in love! I’m in love with my baby boy. I’m in love with these pictures and I’m so thankful for my sweet friend, Aislinn, of Ais Portraits, for sharing her talent with me to take some pictures of me and my sweet Reider.

You cannot imagine how nervous I was about doing these. Nervous about wanting to lose more baby weight first, nervous about not having time to get ready (hello, dry shampoo!), nervous about being awkward in front of the camera… yes, even photographers feel that way. But, ladies, I am SO stinkin’ glad I did these! I mean, seriously! Who wouldn’t want sweet mama-baby snuggle pictures of yourself with your little one? This is was that first year is full of! This is what you’ve waited for 9 treacherous months! This! The snuggles. The cuddles. The sweet baby smell, may it supernaturally linger longer than it should (I legitimately prayed that).

There aren’t enough words for how glad I am that I put those nerves aside and let a pro (who knows women’s bodies and how to use flattering angles) capture this amazing, and short, season that is infancy.  I cannot say enough about how thankful I am that I shut my inner self conscious voice up for long enough to do these. I dream of offering this service to Tallahassee mamas (hint hint, I will be), and ladies… I watch my angles like you wouldn’t believe.

Thank you so much Ais Portraits for your amazing talent, and thank you to The Fount Collective for featuring this session with your beautiful collection of photography. You and I are kindred hearts.
