Breastfeeding Sessions

In celebration of National Breastfeeding Week and World Breastfeeding Month, Tara Tomlinson Photography teamed up with Lactation Love for Breastfeeding Sessions in Sarasota. All of these mamas are so beautiful with their babies and toddlers. What a privilege it was to capture these tender moments. (Some babies were having too much fun to latch, and that was ok too!)

Whimsical Woodsy Maternity Session

A while back, I had the pleasure of creating a custom maternity session for my gorgeous friend, Kat. Since it was fall, we decided to go with rich tones and a dramatic feel. I selected the material with my mom while she was here from California for a visit, and she helped by sewing the dress, with some help from one of her good friends, Geralyn. I decided that none of my existing headpieces were “fall” enough, so I created two new ones with various twig-like and dried flower materials I purchased from a local craft store. Monique Mclaughlin did an incredible job on hair and makeup, as always. Mama has since had sweet baby Sailor, who is cute as a button.

A Styled Mother & Child Session

It’s not possible to get me too much more excited about a session than when I have a session that has been styled by Rachel Griffith at VERGE. To complete the dream team, Monique McLaughlin was responsible for hair and makeup. To make things even more wonderful, the color palette of soft blushes, peaches, beiges and creams just happens to be my absolute favorite. And last but not least, an amazing private location in Sarasota was offered up. I had so much fun photographing Gretchen and her little ones – I could have stayed hours longer if only little inconveniences like dinner time and the sun setting hadn’t interfered! There is just nothing more magical than the sweet moments between mother and child, and I am so honored to have the opportunity to capture those memories to be cherished for lifetimes.
