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.

Bader Family Maternity

Tallahassee, Florida| maternity portraits
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.

The Adcock Family

I met this sweet family through fundraising for our kids school.  Kimberly contacted me to take some pictures of their family. She said it had been years since they’d had them done and I’m always happy to help families document their growing kiddos and a different season of life.

April 23, 2018 Family & Branding
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.

A Season Taking Flight: Welcome Baby Audrey | Sarah Gray Photography, Tallahassee, FL newborn and family photographer

Baby number three always rocks the balance of things in a family. The parents are officially outnumbered. When babe #3 is also the first of the opposite gender, something special happens. It seems a new season has arrived. We experienced this change of seasons when our son joined us and his two big sisters. The time before he was born is marked in my mind as a distinctly different time in our family life.

The Clark family welcomed little Audrey to join her two big brothers. The photos of the three of them are some of my favorites.

This session also makes me think of one of my favorite songs from when my oldest daughter was born. Andrew Peterson writes some of the best and anytime I photograph a family welcoming a new baby girl, the lyrics of his song play through my head.  Here is a portion:

“And the leaves were turning gold and brown
And people came from miles around
To see her when she came to town

And then I turned and walked outside
And stood beneath an autumn sky
And felt a season falling
And a new one taking flight

My baby loves me so
She loves me as I am
She lifts her little hands
Her wish is my command
I’ll pick her up forever if I can.”
-Andrew Peterson/Randall Goodgame, My Baby Loves to Dance, from Slugs, Bugs, and Lullabies

Clark family, I pray that you love this new season of your family life.

 

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!

Milo, Age 3 | Sarah Gray Photography, Cascades Park, Tallahassee, Fl Family Photographer

The greatest compliment I can get is a family coming back to me over and over again. It is such an honor to photograph this group. Their oldest son, Ezra, was my FIRST newborn! He’s now 6 years old. In fact, this family is who helped launch me into starting my business and I love them so dearly on so many levels.

Their second son, Milo, just turned three and we met at Cascades Park on a steamy hot morning to take some pictures of him, his big brother, and their beautiful Mama. Age three is so full of spunk. Milo alternated between being a frog, a cowboy, and “a boy named Milo” throughout the session. I love him. His newborn and maternity sessions were some of my favorites.

Happy THIRD birthday, Milo man! You’ll get those three fingers figured out soon enough!

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.
