I had the honor of photographing this sweet baby boy under one of my favorite piers here on the Gulf Coast.  I thought it was only fitting to document him near the waves, given his name and how important the water is to his parents.  Introducing little Ocean, photographed at just ten days old. . . _dsc0295d





And a few taken at his home. . .  what sweet love surrounds him.






Thank you, Billie and Doug, for waiting so patiently for your sneak peek!  I hope you love the images.  I've got lots more where these came from, but of course we have to leave some surprises for your gallery.  ;)  I'll have the rest of your photographs ready for you to view this week!


I also have a quick bit of info to share:  I am holding my first-ever "casting call" for newborn models, preferably under 3 weeks of age.

The requirements are as follows:

~newborns with dark skin

~model release must be signed, and images will/may be used for local gallery display (inquire for details)

~singletons and multiples all welcome

~shoot must take place within the Tampa Bay area at your home or other location of Stacey's choice

If you and your baby/babies are selected to participate, you will receive a complimentary photo session and print credit.  Sessions are limited.  Please inquire for further details if you are currently expecting or have a brand new baby, or if you know someone who fits the bill.  Feel free to pass this link on!  You may call 727.698.0344 or  email me at stacey@staceywoodsphoto.com for more information, or to be considered.  Include a snapshot if you like.  I can't wait to meet you!


Thanks as always!  And stay tuned for lots more images from the pier.
