What do you want to remember? Capturing your child’s personality at home. Tampa Bay / Orlando Children’s Photographer

One of my favorite quotes about photography was stated by famed French photographer, Henri Cartier-Bresson:  “Photographers deal in things which are continually vanishing and when they have vanished there is no contrivance on earth which can make them come back again.”

Life is fantastic, busy, at times overwhelming, and joyous.  It can get away from us.  There are many activities to consume our days, one after the other, until we look back and realize an entire year has gone by … then two … then 10.  “…and there is no contrivance on earth which can make them come back again.”

It’s so important to hire a photographer who can capture the emotion of your life.  A photographer who can create beautiful pieces of art that show your children’s true personalities, where they shine the most, in the comfort of the place that they will always remember as “home”.

There are so many details in our daily lives that we will want to remember many years from now … like our child’s favorite toys…




As the days slip into weeks, and the weeks into years, what will you want to remember?

How about the image of your lovely little girl in her beautiful room that you’ve worked so hard to make into her own little respite from the world…


And backyard fun!







Reading time…

“When you read a book as a child, it becomes a part of your identity in a way that no other reading in your whole life does.”  ~Meg Ryan as Kathleen Kelly, You’ve Got Mail (1998)


Nap time in Dad’s favorite chair…


And all those loving touches and snuggles!






This big sister’s exact words:  “I wuv my wittle bwudda.”


When your children grow up, will they be able to look at photographs of their childhood room?  I wish I had taken more photographs of my kids’ rooms as they were growing up.  I know that little details have slipped from my mind, and theirs. Capture it now!  The tiny shoes, the books, and stuffed animals…





So, what do you want to remember?  A photograph, when created well, can take you back in time and make you feel the emotion of a moment, like nothing else.



Make sure you hire a photographer who can capture the emotion of your family’s memories.

A recent client said:  “I will never grow old… I will never forget the most cherished moments of my life… There was a day not so long ago that I may have actually believed these things. Today, I know better. The details of the vast collection of blessings our friends and family have bestowed upon us over the years are sometimes difficult to recall exactly. We are so fortunate that one of those many blessings was meeting you, Melinda. Your eye for the world around you allows you to capture much more than just an image.  The depth of feeling and emotion you’re able to enchant each frozen moment in time with, is priceless.  Today, when we look at all the special moments you have recorded forever in time with our family and friends, we are able to not only recall the image, but the full breath of emotion that each brought us long ago.  Thank you so much!”  ~The Sovocools, Orlando, Florida.
