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.

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!

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!

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.

Gorman Wedding | Port St. Joe / Tallahassee, FL Wedding Photographer

James and Christen were married on the beach at sunset in beautiful Port St. Joe, Florida.  The wedding was beautiful and Christen’s attention to detail showed in all areas.  Congratulations, James and Christen.

My other girl…

Big sister had a turn in front of the camera today. She’s becoming quite easy to photograph (much more cooperative than she used to be). We scouted a new location and before I knew it she had pulled me into her world. We were on an adventure exploring… first as pirates then as horses. The greatest adventure of the day was stumbling upon some train tracks just as a train was about to pass. My girl and I were able to stand to the side of the tracks (way way way off to the side) and feel the rush of wind as the engine sped past. I’m not going to lie… It was quite a thrill.

She’s getting to be so fun to take out.

My Girl

This one… this girl is something else. She has two extreme faces… big cheesy smile or mrs. scowley-face. After dropping big sister off at school, Esther and I took a little trip to visit a location I’ve been wanting to scout out. I think I like the result.
