This was such a difficult shoot!! Not for the reasons you would think though. The couple was amazing. I had photographed their engagement and their wedding. No.. This was difficult because it was a surprise “ you're going to be a daddy” shoot for Daniel. I had known about it for weeks as me and Mrs. Becky had been chatting about it, and it was so difficult not spoiling the surprise! She had found a cute Pinterest inspired shoot and I thought it was awesome also. So we went for it and set the plan in motion.
We had decided that with her recent college graduation we would do a small “grad” set to start and then do an couples shoot for the two of them as an anniversary gift. We would end the shoot with the surprise. We shot at Phillipe Park in Safety Harbor. Phillipe is one of my personal favorites as it offers a park setting, a small beach area, fields, and trees over hanging the road ala Magnolia Street in St. Augustine. Phillipe Park really is a one stop for all things Florida.
We started the shoot with her grad photos. A Recent graduate of St. Pete College, Becky was excited about finishing school. Cap and gown, as well as just some fun images of her kicked off the session. Daniel was then included as we paraded around the park. Starting in the road, then making our way into the field and ending at “the tree”. Our final parting shots were the legitimate reason for the shoot. The revealing that Daniel was going to be a father. Setting them up by the tree I told them to each write something on their signs that they love and have learned about each other over their past year of marriage. I counted to three and then had them turn around and face each other. Daniel was over the moon. My favorite shot..Dads fishing buddy!!
