Amanda Florida lifestyle Blogger in Tampa
I feel so lucky to have met Amanda, Mark, and their little one, Patrick!
Amanda has been a Florida lifestyle Blogger for 6 ½ years, and we met at a styled shoot in St. Petersburg. We became fast friends, so when she reached out to me for family pictures, of course I accepted!
Amanda and Mark met at a Florida Gators football game. They were both attending the University of Florida; Amanda was going to Nursing school and Mark was completing his undergrad for law school. They dated for 3 years before getting married on February 20, 2015. Now, 5 years later, they have a two-year-old boy named Patrick.
It’s no surprise that taking pictures with toddlers can be difficult. The truth is, I was a little nervous about how Patrick would react to the situation. Luckily, he did fantastic! I love to capture his little personality. Patrick is such a happy kid and I think you can tell from their photos!
We decided to take Family photos at Cypress Point Park because it has three different scenes: the field, the park, and the beach. Additionally, it’s pretty close to the Tampa Airport, which kids love.
Pointing out the planes that fly over can be a great way to help them warm up to you! We took pictures during golden hour on a Friday, which meant the beach was pretty busy. We tried our best to practice social distancing, so we were moving a lot. After having to reschedule our session several times due to the weather and COVID-19, so we were happy to finally have the opportunity to shoot!
Mark, Amanda, and Patrick were such an awesome family to work with. I mean it when I say that I seriously have the best clients! It’s important to me that your family pictures feel relaxed and fun, and this session was no exception.
