Baby Kolton | Sarah Gray Photography, Tallahassee, FL, Newborn Family Photography

Sweet, sweet Kolton. You are a doll baby and you are my cousin! We’ve had several new babies in our family this year and to say I’m excited doesn’t do it justice. Round little face, chubby chubby cheeks. I could kiss them all day. I take photos of baby’s toes at every newborn session I do. They are so small, so fully, perfectly formed. Baby toes, and the little wrinkles on the bottoms of their feet just leave me in awe. So much detail. So much perfection in such a small part.  If such care was taken on such an unnoticed detail, imagine the planning that went into the character of each child. I’m amazed every time.

For you created my inmost being;
    you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
    your works are wonderful,
    I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you
    when I was made in the secret place,
    when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed body;
    all the days ordained for me were written in your book
    before one of them came to be.” -Psalm 139:13-16

Newborn Baby Abigail, Studio Session | Sarah Gray Photography, Tallahassee, FL Newborn Family Photographer

This little girl was just shy of one month old when we took these last week. Her mama is a longtime friend of mine and Abigail is baby number three, and girl number one to join this amazing family. Photographing these two amazing and beautiful ladies was a blessing. Kelli, you’re beaming with joy. Abigail is a precious jewel.

This was also one of the first sessions photographed in my new STUDIO! I’m just a little excited. I’d love to photograph you in it. Be on the lookout for open house info in the coming weeks!

Baby K | Sarah Gray Photography, Tallahasssee, FL Newborn Lifestyle Photographer

This was a hearty session for me to photograph. I’ve known Sarah since she was in high school and she interned with the middle school youth group at our church when my husband (boyfriend at the time) was the youth pastor. It now seems like a lifetime ago. She and her amazing husband welcomed their first baby into the world in June and he is perfection. I am loving watching Sarah become a mother.

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.

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.

Baby Alexis | Sarah Gray Photography, Tallahassee, FL Newborn Family Photographer

This tiny joy was photographed last year as part of a personal project for me and her mama wins an award for her patience in getting these photos from me. I’ve been wanting to re-learn film photography and the talented, Shannon from Mi Amore Foto, worked on this session with me. I’ve been chicken and haven’t sent those rolls of film into the lab yet. Those images will be shared when I finally get the courage to see how they turned out. With her help, I’m sure they’re fine. I’m just nervous. In the meantime, here are the images I took with my digital camera. They are so so lovely. My oh my do I love photographing babies!

On another note, I have been asked recently about tips for photographing your own kids so I’m toying with the idea of offering a class to share some of that info as well as teach mamas how to use their fancy big cameras to their fullest so really take great, legacy type pictures that only a mama can take of all the day-to-day happenings in a house. In the meantime, you can check out this post from my archives with a few tips.

2015 Fall and Holiday Mini Sessions!


Sarah Gray Photography | Tallahassee, FL holiday, christmas, mini session, family photographer

Great news!  Mini sessions are back!  Last year’s Christmas tree farm sessions were such a hit and have been so heavily requested, that I’m excited to share the love and host mini sessions there again this November.  Each Saturday in November, I’ll be at a different amazing location in town, starting with the Havana Christmas Tree Farm.

Left to Right: Maclay Gardens, Havana Christmas Tree Farm, Alford Park, Southwood Park

These are PERFECT for your annual holiday cards, updating your family picture, and watching how your kiddos have grown since last year’s family portrait.  My style for these sessions is very casual.  I make sure we take a solid family photo, and each of the grouping within your family that you’ll want. Throughout the entire 20 minute session, I’ll be snapping pictures of little moments that give your final gallery that blend of portrait and casual  “lifestyle” session that is so real.  These will be a blast.  One of the greatest compliments I get from clients, aside from them loving their pictures, is that their session was fun!  A fun session helps your kids personality shine.
