Welcome to Laura Foote Photo of Tampa, FL! Laura provides natural light photography for incredible entrepreneurs + artists, adventurous couples, and the sweetest newborns. I whole heartedly believe that my job is to illustrate the story you are living!
As seen on...
Oh you know, just a little magic from today's session with the super talented and oh-so-kind @sarah_and_ben (who are now going to be J and I's bffs because we all love dogs, theater and tacos! Yassss, my people!) I feel terrible not sharing an image that includes Charlotte, their precious fur baby, but Sarah's SKIRT y'all 😍 And hey, now you can be excited to know that plaid + a pup wearing a stocking cap preview is coming 🙌🏻🎄📷 #laurafootephoto #thosetreestho
When all y'all get adorable selfie rights and photographers are over here with a tripod just trying to get a family photo once a year 🙈Tonight I'm sparkly, I match our room and I avoided several (see insta story) crises to get here so I'm documenting it like millenials do, darnit! 😂Can't wait to twirl and hug my wedding industry besties at #starlitsupper2016 tonight!💛✨ #lfpbts #heartbehindtheselfie #joythatisfull
Ahhhh I've been holding onto this surprise in hopes it will be a blessing to those of you who are wanting portraits but for the many reasons this time of the year presents, have not been able to get them set-up!
From December 11th-December 18th I'll be offering my holiday mini package to anyone who books a date/time that week! That means portraits for less than $200, an offer I simply don't extend at any other time of the year! Families, couples & fur babies welcome! Grab an open day/ time at the link in my profile and if you're not in beautiful, sunny FL, run to Expedia and book a flight already!! 😉💕🎄📷 #laurafootephoto (😘to the @scstockshop and @ashleeproffitt 's precious fam for helping make this surprise beautiful!)
When you're working the day away in preparation for your bestie to get to town but all you can think about is lunching with her over tacos that match your drinks 💃. All the 😭🙌🏻💕🌮 coming for when @akmotley gets back to Tampa tomorrow (and I never let her go back to Kansas 🙈)!!! #footesintheheights #bartacosecret #laurafootebranding @bartacolife
A year ago I was dog tired, writing blog posts about (I kid you not) how crockpot dinners made me feel human at the holidays because they allowed us to sit for an evening and enjoy something cozy to eat. Now I'm not saying things in the cooking department have gotten much better (😂) but im so grateful, even on the hard days, to be running this little biz full-time, able to really focus and be present.
If you're a designer or planner and are maybe feeling like how I was a year ago, or are just ready to take things to a more "you" place in 2017, I hope you'll join @meganmartincreative and this amazing group of speakers and mentors (why am I in this lineup?!) for #thepropelseries. Education for y'all has NEVER been delivered this way and I can guarantee you that the depth and heart meets strategy that Megan has created will absolutely be game changing for you in the best of ways!
Registration is limited to 35 wedding planners and designers to foster a close-knit community over 11-weeks. Registration ends December 14th, so reserve your spot now and use "LAURA" for $150 off! Link to the gorgeous website with all the info is in my profile! 💕🙌🏻
Florida Christmas card portraits deliver love, joy.... and a bit of a slap in the face when they arrive in the mailboxes of friends & family members "up north" aka anywhere other than here 😬📬. Whoooooops! P.S. Guess who the captain in this family is? Hint- she's the shortest one and she sails solo! 📷⚓️#laurafootephoto
The peppermint cocoa is flowing strong in the office today! Sometimes I still can't believe that I have the opportunity to work from this little room in #ourcornerlot. This tree that used to brighten up my windowless yet beloved higher ed office now lives on my festive bar cart as a reminder of the journey. Cheering you on today friend and hoping you have a magical first weekend of December! Mine will include cheering on K's bball team, taking her to get highlights for the first time, and celebrating one year of my bestie becoming a mama at her son's birthday party! Full to do list today, full heart thinking about all of that 💕🎄 #lfpbts #joythatisfull
Today I joined a group of my fav ladies for a webinar that focused on micro changes/ major results and whoa, their words were SO full of wisdom and grace! I talked a little but about the changes I've made in thinking about generosity this year and how moving from "dollars=freedom" to "purpose statements= #joythatisfull" has been transformative. I fill in this sentence to clarify things when it all feels loud and important (aka everything, all the time): I want to help _________ become/have ___________ by ______________ (through)____________.
This excercise especially helps with the little things, like slowing down to love on the aqua aerobics ladies in my class! Yaaas! But it also helps with the hard things, like the last 24 hours when a super tough situation falls from the sky, hours of phone calls and interviews ensue and we find our house with an extra teenager for a bit who needs a soft place to land and a hot meal.
She's not in the way. She's not keeping me from my inbox. She's not tiring me out, making it hard to get things done at all. Sure, all those things are reality but there's space in my heart and mind to know that she matters and the rest will be there tomorrow. And I want to (👉🏻 purpose statement!) help teenage girls become confident, educated women through knowing them well and sharing time, space and resources freely. So see- she's totally what I was supposed to be doing today, even if no $ or inbox to 0 comes of it (which I what I chased hard before and still fight against) 💕
What are you chasing thats totally wearing you out? That you believe will give you what you want/need? If you're like me, it's unknowingly robbing you of so much and I hope you can find freedom in making a U-turn towards the stuff that really matters *and* the work that you love! #messyheartmusings #laurafootespeaks
School drop off 🚌, barre class- 🏃♀️, then home by 10am for a mastermind date 🖥 with my girls @eldforpros, @laurenlcarnes, @christinascalera and @meganmartincreative = my fav kind of morning! When I look at my current business landscape, time with these ladies is truly the thing I cherish most. We talk about all things (I mean ALL) life and business, share knowledge, proof projects- you name it!
Really "mastermind" is just fancy for "hey, we could learn from and encourage each other!" and if you don't have a group, I cannot recommend enough that you start one! What if we had mastermind mama, traveler, creative, college student groups etc.?! Think about people you've met through Instagram alone- people in different industries and cities than you- what a gift to be able to really link arms and form community! 💕🙌🏻 #laurafootephoto #communityovercompetition
Oh friends, @meganmartincreative has wrapped up something oh-so-special that all creatives who are feeling simultaneously inspired and overwhelmed NEED to be a part of! This Thursday at 3pm she's hosting a FREE round table webinar for all of us! I'll be there with @eldforpros, @christinascalera, @dearsweetheartevents and @laurenlcarnes to share about small shifts we each made in our businesses this year that lead to mighty results. There are 32 days left in 2016- let's celebrate the gifts this year has brought and be intentional about what's coming next! Will you join us? Grab your seat from the link in my profile and get your afternoon cocoa ready! P.S. If you're a wedding planner or designer she's got an extra something special for you on Thursday so you def have to be there! 💕☕️ #communityovercompetition #laurafootespeaks 📷: of course the darling @meganmartincreative herself 🎁
