How do you handle Plan B?

There are many quotes about what happens when “Plan A” doesn’t work out. Two of my favorites are “Life is all about how you handle plan B” and “Keep calm and go on to Plan B”. I arrived at my Tampa family photo shoot early in Ybor City to discover our originally planned (and scouted) location to be totally blocked off for an unknown festival. Cue me not freaking out. Maybe a little. After texting the mom that I’d shortly give her a new spot to meet I drove around in silence - mind racing. I selected a quiet area of Ybor city near a parking garage - with a thought that maybe, just maybe, I’d be able to use the roof and cross of one my photography bucket list items of having a family photo shoot at the very top of the garage. As I parked, so did the family and there was no time for anything - except to make Plan B my Plan A.

The family was so relaxed, the kids talkative and energetic. For our Tampa family photo session we walked around a large block using the unique backdrops of the old Ybor City. As I saw the sun lowering I suggested the top of the parking garage - and they were in! Be sure to keep scrolling so you don’t miss the images with the gorgeous sky!!

Looking back I definitely realize I fit into the cliche - that I’m pleased Plan A didn’t work out. Plan B provided us with a quiet area so we weren’t fighting crowds, space to run and play and of course the top of the parking garage.

Some Florida Beach Vibes

I’ve been looking through my images from the Florida beaches — the one one I most often visit is Anna Maria Island. I’d like to say I’m an “Anna Maria Island Photographer”. I’d really like to say I live there….maybe one day!!! Already in 2019 I’ve had two Anna Maria Island Family Photo shoots. One was super warm and I even jumped in the Gulf with the kids! The other engagement beach session was a ad chilly! I’ll be posting those soon but for now here are a few Florida beach images.

Bringing Yourself -- Tampa Family Photographer

This momma was super excited yet a bit nervous about her Tampa family photoshoot. We spoke on the phone, discussed the plan, decided on outfits and then we waited for our date! It rained - boo! So, we rescheduled and we ended up with the beautiful evening for our family session exploring downtown Tampa. 

When you bring yourself to our family session - when you relax - when you enjoy your family -  and trust I'm there to capture the best moments - then YOU make the best moments for me. You do! Yes, I'm watching the light, looking for interesting backgrounds, have control over my professional gear -- but without your personality -- it's really not that exciting. You have to bring who you are and then I capture your family memories for you to keep forever!

That's what this family did -- all three of them! We moved around all parts of downtown and created this gorgeous gallery of images. Keep scrolling for all the goodness!

(p.s. This is not a mini-session. This is a full family session - I have very few openings for these available this Fall so contact me asap.)
