When that moment involves your own God son, it is even more magical watching him grow. So when our dear friends and newlyweds Kelsey and Chad announced they were expecting, we were so excited for them.

Last year we had the honor of capturing his newborn session, and this year, we took a small road trip to Panama City to celebrate his 1st birthday. Since we spent the weekend in Panama City with them, we were able to capture Oliver in his own element just playing and being himself.

We were excited to take him to the beach. He loves playing in the dirt, he ought to love the beach, or so we thought. He wanted absolutely nothing to do with the sand or the water. However, he was happy in Daddy’s arms when Daddy began to toss him into the air as he squealed with delight.

With best plans made, sleeping and nap time taken into account to have prime time for this little boy, one years old often still have a mind of their own and with that said, we were able to capture memories for the scrap book which Chad and Kelsey will never forget. Whether laughing, smiling or crying, Ollie let his own character shine!

A Perfect Catch | Tampa Bay Wedding Photographer http://www.joeleonephotography.com/blog/2018/2/a-perfect-catch-tampa-bay-wedding-photographer   Cliff and Colleen’s Wedding was truly an amazing event. Let’s back track a moment to get to know them – We’ve known Colleen for years – Very vivacious and full of energy and life. You would routinely find her dancing in brightly colored attire with a tutu and full of sparkle. We didn’t often see the elusive Cliff. However, once we met him, we immediately realized where her sparkle came from; It was from Cliff. The moment either one of them would enter a room you could tell just by seeing the others reaction. The love and chemistry between these two are undeniable.

  These two had great love for their families, their many pets (and number is constantly growing) and of course Pokémon. You could frequently find them playing Pokémon around town trying to catch them all. They found their ultimate catch in each other.

  When they announced their engagement, we were elated to be involved from the start and knew we would have to create a custom wedding package as unique as them. We started out with a beautiful engagement session in Safety Harbor’s Philippe Park under the giant shade of the Oak Trees, followed by an exclusive sneak peek bridal session at a quaint little inn in downtown St. Petersburg.

  An intimate destination ceremony in St. Augustine, FL was planned at The Kenwood Inn along with a reception for family and friends back home at the Gulfport Casino. All the details had been meticulously planned and executed by the Bride. They designed and created all of their own floral arrangements, table toppers, decorations, party favors and many more special touches to reflect the wonderful love and connection these two share.

  We love it when our friends become our clients and even more so when our clients become our friends.

A Cold Winter's Night | Citrus Wildlife Management Area Nature Photographer http://www.joeleonephotography.com/blog/2018/1/a-cold-winters-night-citrus-wildlife-management-area-nature-photographer   It was a cold winter's night and I was out in the woods without a soul in sight. Well, except for the people in the other 24 campsites. Ok, ok. That was cheesy. But it was a cold winter's night and I was out in the woods, the Citrus Wildlife Management Area at Holder Mine Campground to be exact.

  My wife was going to an all weekend event in Crystal River and I had a bright idea to go tent camping by myself for the weekend in nearby Inverness. I knew it was going to be cold, so I prepared for that. I just didn't really think about what a low of 28 degrees at night would feel like in a tent in the middle of the woods. Thankfully I prepared properly and I didn't freeze. I had brought 3 sleeping bags, a small space heater and plenty of warm clothes and undergarments.

  It was an amazing first night. I had a nice warm campfire and the low was 28 degrees. I was able to keep it at 39 degrees inside the tent and it was awesome.

  On Saturday morning, I went hiking and completed just over 7 miles. Of course, the whole time I was hiking, I could hear gunshots in the distance do to nearby hunters. So, after completing my morning hike, I headed out to the closest Walmart and picked up a bright orange sweatshirt and ball cap since it is hunting season and there were warnings by FWC at the entrance to the trails.

  Back at the campsite, I had lunch and then went on my second hike for the day completing a little more than 6 miles on a different trail.

  Saturday night it dropped to 34 degrees and I had another nice warm campfire. Inside the tent, it was 43 degrees which made for another awesome night.

  Sunday was pretty boring as it was time to pack everything up and eventually head home. Below are a few photos I captured while there.

This time we use the beaches of Saint Petersburg, Florida for her Christmas Portraits. What else would you expect for a Florida Christmas? A beautiful, hot and sunny day on the beach at Christmas time.

  I do have to say though, we did get a few looks from passersby especially when I had her dressed in a cute elf costume.

I hope to see him one day soon in the show ring and have the pleasure of photographing him again at that point.

Deysel Family | Anderson Park Family Photographer http://www.joeleonephotography.com/blog/2017/11/deysel-family-anderson-park-family-photographer   This family from the Cayman Islands was searching for a photographer in the Tarpon Springs area and came across me on google. They were looking for a location which included trees, water and open grass areas, along with a place where the kids could be kids. I suggested A.L. Anderson Park as there is a little of everything they were looking for plus it was close to where they were staying. They were also looking for the candid shots of the kids playing along with the posed family images.

  We were lucky to have a beautiful evening, skies and sunset with the day they chose for their session. After a couple of posed family photos, we let the kids run and play so I could capture them being kids. This family was full of fun, joy and just an all around happy family to work with.

Celebrating Life | Sunset Beach Family Photographer http://www.joeleonephotography.com/blog/2017/11/celebrating-life-sunset-beach-family-photographer   I was contacted by a friend in Tennessee whose Mother was diagnosed with stage four cancer.   She stated they would be taking a trip to Florida to visit family while they still could.  Her request was to surprise her Mom with a photo session so they could make more memories and celebrate her life.   

  We selected one of the prettiest beaches around, Sunset Beach in Treasure Island, Florida, just before sunset. The clothing and colors wore by the family were a conscience decision as purple is the color to represent Pancreatic Cancer.  No direction or coaching needed for this family.  A few small suggestions and they wrote their story themselves.  This session was so much fun; full of laughter, love and a few tears.   Every image captured their crazy passion for life, their bonds of love and amazing friendship.   Jennifer was able to make new lasting memories with her mother Greta, her son (Greta's Grandson) and her lifetime best friend Cindy.   Their wasn't a moment that someone wasn't making a joke, laughing or just being silly.   

  This Session had so much love, life and passion that it will be a session I will never forget.

I have photographed quite a few couples over the years and I have to say, Walt and Jessica just have that special look when making the slightest glance at each other. That sparkle in their eyes is just amazing.

I posted just a few of their wedding day photos and included a couple with that sparkle.

Blowing Rock Preserve | Hobe Sound Fine Art Nature Photographer http://www.joeleonephotography.com/blog/2017/9/blowing-rock-preserve-hobe-sound-fine-art-nature-photographer  I had always wanted to visit Hobe Sound, Florida and Blowing Rock Preserve. The images I had previously seen were just amazing and I knew I had to visit. We made the 3 and a half hour trip to the other coast of Florida early one morning so we could be there by sunrise. Once we finally arrived, we made our way in the darkness to the beach where we sat and waited. Once the sun started coming up, I was truly amazed at the sight in front of me. I had never seen such a sight in person.

  I can only hope that you can see, at least a portion of what I saw, through my photos below.

I Can Finally See, Once I Opened My Eyes http://www.joeleonephotography.com/blog/2017/8/i-can-finally-see-once-i-opened-my-eyes   Like a lot of you, I have been racing through this thing called life. It seems like I've been running here or there for appointments, schedules or whatever along with all my normal daily routines. There's so much to do and so little time. This has become such a routine, I didn't even notice when it started to affect me personally. I go camping to get away and I just can't sit. I have to find something to do. But the biggest part is that it was affecting my photography and I didn't even know it.

  I've been missing the fine details. I get to a location and without stopping to think and look, I walk briskly through an area and think to myself, "This place looks like crap. It's not kept up and it's just blah." All I'm doing is walking with blinders on and seeing whats in front of me. Boring Bah ImageBoring Bah ImageThis is what I was seeing.

  That looks pretty darn boring and blah to me. This past week I was sick. I was in bed, didn't want to do anything and just felt plain yucky. When I started feeling better, I wanted out. I needed to get out of the house. My plan, grab the camera, head to a park and see what I see. Sounds like my old self, blinders and all. But this time was different. When I got to the park, it was already hot out, I was feeling tired and was lugging my camera gear. This made me walk a little, well, a lot slower than normal. In doing so, I started looking around and noticing little things. Things I hadn't seen in a long time. With this specific park, I had been here a thousand times before, but with slowing down and taking my blinders off, it was like I had never been there before.

  So now that I can finally see since I slowed down and opened my eyes, I no longer saw the boring and blah surroundings. In a place that I would capture a photo here or there and then maybe use it later, I am now capturing images that are beautiful and amazing. The fine details in everything. While there, a lady even asked me if I got any good pictures. My response absolutely, there is stuff all over this place. Her reply was, you must have a good eye.

  My lesson to myself is to stop, slow down, look around see the details all around me no matter where I am. The photo above is blah and boring, but inside that photo is all the details in the images shown below.

  All the above images can be viewed in our Fine Art Photography 'Recent Photos' gallery. Not all photos will appeal to everyone, but I hope some of these have appealed to you. Again, stop, slow down and look around you. You have no clue what you might be missing.
