Tampa Maternity Session | Alafia River State Park

Bethany and Ryan were married over three years ago in Key West where I shot their destination wedding. They were living in NY at the time so when I received an email that they moved to Florida and wanted me to shoot Maternity,  Newborn, and the little ones milestones I was more then excited! Repeat clients always means we did our job right the first time. We took to Alafia River State park for their maternity session. The overgrowth is “in bloom” and it made for some great backdrops for their shots. I’m super excited for their newborn session when they welcome the little one in June!

Enjoy their session below!

Alafia River State Park Couples Session | Tampa Wedding Photographer Kristen Marie Photography

Alafia River State Park Couples Session | Tampa Wedding Photographer Kristen Marie Photography 

This Alafia River State Park Couples Session was a dream! Alafia River State Park has so much potential for a session that when Anna, who makes my delicious Latte’s at my local Dunkin (yes I know my coffee makers!), was talking about holiday photos I said if she wanted to do something at Alafia River State Park I was game. It doesn’t look like much to a lot of people but between the open areas and the overgrowth the location holds so much potential. She agreed and her boyfriend was on board so to Alafia River State Park we went. It’s a great place if you are considering a not so busy park with more privacy that you aren’t feeling uncomfortable with people walking past or stopping to look! They rocked the session too! It rained during a portion of the session, I’ve wanted to shoot a series of images in the rain for a while but clearly it wouldn’t work for an entire session. It’s pretty typical to get a few rain drops during any given session here.

Alafia River State Park Session | Friends & Family Session

Erica wanted a session with her and her daughter and then her bestest friend and her son and I thought it was an awesome idea. Alafia River State Park was the setting for this session and this time of the year the park is really gorgeous with the overgrowth and winter flowers coming in. The session went great and we even saw a buck run across the field. Enjoy their session below!

One Year Old Cake Smash | Alafia State Park |The Egge-Greth Family | Kristen Marie Photography Tampa Wedding Photographer

 

 

 

One Year Old Cake Smash | The Egge-Greth Family | Cake Smash | Alafia River State Park | Kristen Marie Photography Tampa Wedding Photographer

Meet the Egge-Greth Family a pretty cool family. We started with a family session including their wonderfully behaved family dog and ended with a cake smash. Their session took place at the Alafia River State Park (A great place for family sessions) just before sunset!  Alafia River State Park has a lot of great overgrowth which is even great for couples photography or engagement sessions.  Daddy climbs poles and works on electric lines etc and wanted when the baby was born to incorporate this however they didn’t have the time. So for his first year session we incorporated it and for a one year old he worked really great with daddy and the shot that they really wanted. For the cake smash the puppy joined in and had some cake. The little guy was a little confused at first but was more then willing to share. Believe it or not most of the one year olds we have done cake smashes with really didn’t want much to do with the cake and in this cake there was someone else to enjoy some cake! Enjoy their session!
