Couples photography in Tampa, Florida

When we have a 9 AM shoot in Tampa we have to get up before the sunrises. Granted it’s a one hour drive, but we like to get there early and some of us rise more slowly than others. Ever since Jake stopped drinking coffee (except an occasional decaf) he’s been a little more groggy and a little less shaky. But by the time we make it down there he is usually energized and ready to go. We both get excited when we are taking photographs, which is a sign that we’re on the right path in life. Read More

We always show up early for our photo sessions, partly to scout, partly so that we won’t feel rushed, and partly because you never know what the parking will be like.

Gulfport’s Tuesday Fresh Market

On Tuesday there is a Farmer’s Market in the Waterfront District of Gulfport. I’ve loved this place ever since Jake’s parents introduced us to this place a few years ago (during one of our wintery visits). With all that’s been happening with our new home and business, we’ve been forgetting to get out and enjoy ourselves once in a while. Well at the beginning of this week I marked my calendar and Jake and I took off for Gulfport. It’s a beautiful place to walk around, with plenty of shade on the sidewalks. Read More
