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.

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!

Full Hands

This role of Motherhood is so much more powerful and beautiful than we all believe.  Can you remember being small and scared and just knowing that everything would be okay if you just had your mom?  It’s so much that mothers do, and so much that they are that makes them and their role so beautifully necessary.  This series, a new mother beaming with joy for the little ones she’s surrounded with, so in her role, arms full of squirming, crying babies. I’m overwhelmed by it.  If you’ve had the occasion to be in her role, you may be overwhelmed too.  I find this series of images so powerful and moving.

It’s a… – Tallahassee, Florida Maternity Photographer

The Atkins are expecting another baby! Woohoo! A few months ago, they popped by an engagement session for a few minutes to snap their “pregnancy announcement” picture.

Birth Announcement  - Sarah Gray Photography, Tallahassee, FL family, baby, wedding photographer

Mrs. Atkins told me they wanted to throw a little gender reveal party after their 20 week appointment. So fun. I was there to snap a few pictures of the big reveal and a few of the happy family. Each guest was encouraged to “dye” their drink either blue or pink depending on their baby gender prediction. Tryna’s mom and dad made the cupcakes for the party so they were the lucky first ones to find out the gender of their future grand-baby… a beautiful sentiment to the excited grandparents.

A few weeks ago I had the honor of “second shooting” for a few hours with a photographer who was in town working a beautiful wedding. Aislinn Bailey of Ais Portraits has a great eye for couples’ photography and we had fun photographing this beautiful couple.

To see many more images from this beautiful wedding, see Aislinn’s post. You’ll be glad you did.

Kelly Brown Workshop – Newborn Posing Class Review | Sarah Gray Photography – Tallahassee, FL newborn photographer

I am so so so thankful for the community of Creative Live.  Seriously, good stuff happens over there for photographers.  I’ve taken a few courses from them in the past and the one just this past week / weekend was the icing on top of the cake.  The wonderful Kelly Brown from Little Pieces Photography in Brisbane, Australia instructed a course on posing newborns.  Kelly is one of those masters of the trade and I could just watch her work all day long.  She covered all the things needed to know to photograph newborns in all those cute little scrunchy positions that I love love love.  I LOVE photographing newborns and seriously, I cannot wait to use some of Kelly’s awesome posing techniques on the little ones I have coming up in the next week(s).  Those clients-to-be are currently still in their mama’s wombs.
