Baby Andrew

Tallahassee, Florida| Newborn Lifestyle Portraits
April 15, 2018 Newborn & Family

Darling boy, it’s so good to meet you.

I photographed this family’s gorgeous maternity session not long ago and LOVED being able to meet baby Andrew after he made his grand entrance into the world. He is welcomed by his mama, daddy, and big brother William.

His cute nursery was a dream to work in and his mama did such a great job with the little details in it. Take a look at his crib bedding. It might be my new favorite.

Welcome home, Andrew.

The Demme Family

It’s the greatest compliment when a family comes back to me a second (or third or fourth) time to photograph their growing family.  I love seeing kids grow and mature. These two siblings let me take some awesome pictures of the two of them. This family seems so close to me. I know these parents have prioritized having shared experiences together. For them, those experiences have taken them all over the world. I admire that commitment so much and PRAY that we’re laying the foundation with our little ones now, so that when they’re older they’ll still enjoy being with us.

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.

Baby T | Sarah Gray Photography, Tallahassee, FL newborn and family photographer

When I say that spring is in the air, I absolutely do mean it in the form of new life. Baby T was born and welcomed into his family last month and they are so so excited to have him home!

Z Family, Springtime Family Photos | Sarah Gray Photography, Tallahassee, FL Goodwood Plantation Photographer

A beautiful day, a beautiful location (one of my favorites in town), perfectly cool weather is the recipe for a great family photo session. I met this family at Goodwood Plantation and we walked around taking photos along the way.

Spring is my favorite time of year for family photos. The light is bright and cool, the weather is perfect, and looking back at your spring session pictures will instantly brighten your mood. I did a mommy-and-me spring session when my son was 4 months old and it remains one of my favorites. Naturally, the mama/baby photos in this session are near and dear to my heart.

You need these. To make them accessible, I’ll be offering SPRING MINI SESSIONS and will announce them in the next week. Follow my facebook page to hear specifics and dates. They fill so fast.

The Hubby

This handsome man is my husband.  He stands by my side and watches our kiddos on Saturday mornings while I’m out doing my craft.

Funny story, one of our first Valentines Days, he picked me up to go out to dinner. He was dressed nicely and I answered the door to him with his hands behind his back. Honestly, I was expecting flowers, because, well Valentines Day. When he pulled his hands out from behind his back he was holding…. a bucket of vegetables nestled in tissue paper. I didn’t really know what to think. Typically a girl expects flowers, or chocolates, or some other pretty gesture. I’d never put it together that we link these things because we think something along the lines of, “these flowers are pretty. He thought of me when he picked out these flowers. He thinks I’m pretty like these flowers are pretty.” I realize that reduces the appearance of my thought process down to something embarrassingly simple, and I have not excuse for that. I’d never analyzed before why I wanted flowers for Valentines Day.

HIS thinking was quite the opposite. He wanted to show me a thoughtful gesture, not like all those other dudes “running by Publix on their way home to pick up some flowers for their wife or girlfriend” (I’m guessing he assumed this appeared thoughtless to be done so last minute and without planning on their parts). No, he wouldn’t be like them (although he was because he was in Publix to get flowers when he decided he thought he’d be lame to do the same as every other guy), so instead, he selects various veggies that he knows I’ll be able to use for cooking, because he knows I like to cook. There are obvious flaws in this thought process, but in hindsight I can’t fault him for trying. The day he gave me this bucket of veggies, I didn’t think of any of that, 19 year old Sarah only saw, “veggies. Vegetables aren’t pretty. He doesn’t think I’m pretty.” (also a thought process full of obvious flaws, but… you know, 19 years old). I can remember literally chocking back tears  as I tried to tell wether or not he was serious with his gift.  When he looked at me with such care in his eyes, I realized he was. I had a hard time chocking back tears all evening. We ended up having a lovely dinner at a local restaurant.

A few months later I finally told my best friend about his gift. I’d been too embarrassed to share it in fear of what she would think of him. I know he meant well, but I just couldn’t help but have been hurt by it. I eventually told him how it made me feel and we moved past it.

As a gesture of proof at how far we’ve come since those early, emotional, naive days, he jokingly includes the ugliest root vegetable he can find along with beautiful flowers each Valentines Day. We laugh realizing how young were were, how ridiculous we were, how much life has changed, and how unimportant that event was in the grand scheme of things. ❤

Ava, this year is going by entirely too fast! HOW are you already 9 months!?!  You have beautiful blue eyes and the softest head of baby hair. You mama and daddy had better be getting ALL the kisses they can!

I can’t wait to see you in three months!

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.

Samantha Rose | Sarah Gray Photography, Tallahassee, FL Newborn Photographer

Sweet little Samantha was 14 days old at her newborn session earlier this month. She fit so perfectly in my arms. She was a petite, and in her mama’s words, “Weights almost 6 pounds – tiny little thing.” That she was. Tiny and perfect.

What an angel baby.

Dominic, 9 Months & Mama-Baby Snuggle Mini Sessions | Sarah Gray Photographer, Tallahassee, FL Mother and Baby Plan Photographer

This little man is growing so fast.  He is a charmer and has the most attractive little dimple in his right cheek.  We took his 9 month baby plan pictures at Oven Park.

Sarah Gray Photography | Tallahassee, FL Baby Plan photographer, 9 months

Things are looking so beautiful there right now. It makes me want to photograph some sweet mama-baby snuggle sessions like the one I did with my own, little Reider last year (thank you Ais Portraits).

I have some availability this month to squeeze in a few mini sessions if any mamas are interested.

  • $150 for a 20 minute session and digital file downloads (10-15 images)
  • Dorothy B. Oven Park.
  • Weekday mornings only during the month of March.

I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to photograph some of you mamas with your tiny ones! They grow so fast and I absolutely cherish the pictures that I have of myself with my Reider when he was 4 months old. You will never regret it! Contact me here and we’ll get you and your tiny one on my calendar.
