Madison | Fish Hawk Newborn Photographer

to say i was excited to meet madison
is quite an understatement.
you see,
madison shares a beloved uncle tai
with my own babies.
and since he couldn't make it down in time to do her newborn photos,
i received the honor.

when i arrived, the atmosphere was peaceful and calm.
the home was warm and welcoming
and the scent of fresh flowers, baby wipes and spaghetti filled the air.
madison's nursery was just the right touch of girly elegance-
a space where a little girl can grow and dream.
dad was clearly smitten, to put it lightly
and mom looked beautiful and seemed to have fallen into her new role
with grace and confidence.
madison is as sweet as they come.
congratulations again to this gorgeous family.

Organic Bloom Frames in Action | St. Petersburg Photographer

remember henry?
he now has this gorgeous organic bloom frame hanging in his nursery.
frame style: cary grant color: clover leaf

check out the organic bloom website,
there are tons of images of these frames in use.
what i love about them
other than their obvious whimsy and charm
is that the company began on a dream.
it was started by a husband/wife duo
and now organic bloom frames are hanging in homes all over the world.

if you're interested in ordering one for your own home,
email stacia@staciahehenberger.com for details.

scenes from an egg hunt | project film

as some of you know from my photography facebook page
i've been experimenting with film photography lately.
don't get me wrong, my digital camera has it's place
but there's something authentic about film.
something that i found myself trying to emulate in digital post-processing.
the creamy skin tones, the dreamy color palette, the simplicity of it.
so far, i'm in love.
but i realize i'm in the honeymoon phase
so while film and i get acquainted
i'll share my progress with you
in the form of photos of my favorite models.

easter weekend the family and i met up with some good friends
we're second timers at this event
and i don't see us straying anytime soon.
it's a great hunt & a great cause for all you locals.

i only brought my film camera.
that was a big step for me.
i took the training wheels off, so to speak.
all images shot with F5 50mm
Portra 400

Jonah | St. Petersburg, FL Newborn + Family Photographer

there was an incredible sense of family in the air during jonah's newborn session.
do you know what i mean?
sure, in the literal sense
there were family & friends filtering in and out while i was there
but there was more than that.
the session setting was the family's home-
a home in every sense of the word.
built by family, lived in only by family.
a yard where mom played as a little girl
and where her two sons will soon play together.
stories and love and light
history and future.

welcome home, jonah.
