Tampa Teen Photographer | Curtis Hixon Park | University of Tampa Session

As a Lutz Teen Photographer, I pride myself on capturing your teens true personality.  One of the things I love about teen sessions is talking to them, they all have such unique personalities !! This beautiful young lady is my daughter.  We were capturing her birthday and her starting her freshman year in high school .  Where does the time go??  It seems like she was just taking her first steps and here she is entering high school !! I thought you might like to see how a typical teen session goes… why don’t you “walk” through this session with us ?!

Location Location Location… How hard can it be ?

I always ask my kids where they want photos and every year she challenges me!! Last year she wanted a wild flower field however we were unable to find a public one. This year she asked for beach photos, THIS should have been simple right?! Hello RED TIDE!!  Do you ever  feel like a complete Mom fail ? Even when things aren’t really your fault?! Just me hmmm Ok? 😉  Finally she decided she would like her photos done in Tampa, but since she has already done Ybor City;  we decided to go to  Curtis Hixon Park as it is one of my favorite locations to shoot at.  When we arrived I was surprised to see that October Fest was happening and we would not be able to use my favorite go – to locations.  So we decided to look around and see what new fun spots we could find!!  I’m glad we took the time to explore we found some really cool spots!!

Stop 1: Curtis Hixon Park tile wall:

Right now she is in her “serious face” stage ~ that means I only managed to coax out a few big smiles out of her. This fun tile wall is one of my favorite spots to start and since there wasn’t a crowd by it we snapped a few

Look she even smiled for me for a split second!

Stop 2:

From there we started walking and found the coolest back lit stairs!! Usually I will move and don’t let the sun hit my lens but I was feeling playful and daring and decided what’s the worst that can happen and we got this!

LOVE LOVE LOVE … I think I’ve found the one I’m hanging on the wall this year!! Now what size to print is the only question …

Stop 3

Since she and I aren’t huge fans of crowds we decided to walk up and over the cause way toward University of Tampa, another favorite location of mine.  Only “problem” with this location is a LOT of other photographers love this location as well.  So again all of my usual spots were already occupied especially since we had arrived much later then my normal, but hey at this point we decided to give some new spots a chance.  This collage has a couple of cool spots we found while walking over the cause way and then on the beautiful campus of UT.  Thinking I may have to head out of my comfort zone a little more often!!
