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...
T-5 hours until weekend mode aka tech break & family time!! Ours is going to be all about J's 🎭 awards, the new 🌮 place in town (@xtremetacos we are coming for ya!), K surviving 🎓 bash and lots of 👶🏻 prep, 🚿 the house & 🍃 work! Two 📷 shoots and some fun in the ☀️will get me an editing break, though I'm thrilled to have pushed it this week to get the @scstockshop lifestyle line proofs out to the team for review (sneak of our blush line in my insta story!! Ahhh come on May launch!) What weekend emojis have you 🏃♀️🏃🏼to get through your Friday afternoon?! Last one of April, no less! 👀💕🙌🏻🎉🌊 #lfpbts #loveFL #TGIF
I didn't think life could get much sweeter once I married J because I knew wherever it took us we'd be together. In fact, I actually worried that other things might feel like a distraction from this sweet guy I've been loving for 15 years. But in just the last two years of almost 6 years married we've gone from tiny house dwelling grad students to a full house with all the girls & days that are not easy but certainly are filled with careers and opportunities we have prayed hard for. It's been God's grace that's carried, taught, and changed us all these years--ever since we dated in high school and broke up because Jordan didn't believe He was important! It's a crazy story only He could write. But tonight I just wanted to say a sincere thanks for YOUR love and support of us and my business.
As end of the year school events keep K & J out late and I'm home editing away, feeling Mac's hiccups and kicks, I'm overwhelmed knowing that a middle school teacher and a little ol' photographer will get to spend this summer helping (we pray) K transition to life after high school, with each other and their new baby girl. It's a gift so many would do anything for and in so many ways you have made it possible. Every photo I take is a tangible blessing to our family not just because of financial provision but because it allows me to tell stories that change us, our family unit, every session I'm a part of. And there may be a lot of unknowns in life and in the months ahead especially, but knowing how vastly we are loved and supported is not! Please let us know how we can support and love you too, friend. We are just so grateful 🙌🏻💛 #messyheartmusings #footesintheheights #grace 📷: @sarah_and_ben 💄: @lastingluxe
You know what would make me crazy? Sourcing + styling images like this myself 🙈🤣 Because the reality of custom branding flat lays in my world are that @amberveatchdesigns is hired to completely manage them for my branding sessions. From these gorgeous blue brushes that she hand picked for Krystal's brand to the fact that this is a 1/4 crop of the full styled image (which tells you how many details + products were included!), she does not leave any elements without care and attention. And in a social media world full of 1x1 images shot on white poster board of target dollar spot goodies (I'm not hatin'-- totally a time, place and need for them!), I have to separate her talent & give her all the 🙌🏻🎉💛 Thanks for being amazing and for partnering with me to create such amazing imagery, my friend! And @krystalwhitten, I cannot wait to see your lettering rock out the white space in this image 😍After I clone myself out of your glasses of course 😎 #lfpbts #laurafootebranding
Hey Kansaaaaaaas! We got to hug ya last week and are SO excited to be coming back for Tour de Mac + all the sessions from July 8-20 (ish!) So... we should probably set up a date! You know, for donuts, and pictures, and video (yesssss commercial/brand videos are launching this summer!), and baby snugs. Interested? Send me a dm or leave some comment love! 🙌🏻💛🌾📷 P.S. If you are under the impression that Kansas is boring, ugly, flat, and without running water (👈🏻 If I had a dollar for every time... 👀), you're missing out and should probably come visit with us 🐄🤣 #laurafootephoto #lfpgetaway #KStoFL
"My guess from her position? You've got one long, skinny, baby girl in there, mama!" my midwife said to me today. "Oh, and I know there are some unknowns with your bloodwork. But, ease up on the beet juice and treat yourself today, ok?!" Done and done (hey-o @ricos_acai_tampa 🍌🍓🥝🍍🍫). So fun that we'll soon be welcoming lil' Mac to #ourcornerlot!
To boot it's been a wildly productive day in the new living room office (because standing + socializing are key these days 🤣)! @heykateladd and I are working on all the things (best assistant ever!) but we have a question- for those of you who have someone helping manage your email inbox, how do you stay organized with two people and how do you help your assistant fill in the gaps on knowing what to say to a given message (drafts you review? That's what we're thinking). Would love your thoughts! Happy Monday, friends! 💡🎉💕 #lfpbts
When the weekend was SO good and you're just like "don't let me go 😭💕🙌🏻!" Grateful for time with sweet friends, yard work, baby prep laundry (all the tiny socks!), pizzaaaaaa and no shoots except K + her friend Esther's senior pictures! Oh, I also tried 3 new beet juices...they are all still the worst (seriously I don't understand how @laurenlcarnes adores beets. Girl is cray), but I'm crossing my fingers for good 💉 work tomorrow aaaaaand I also totally bailed on trying acupuncture & got a pedicure instead 🤣🤰🏼👀#ourlifeislikewatchingpaintdry #Iloveit #36weekspregnant #footesintheheights
Who needs 🦄 fraps when you have sunsets that look like 💕🍰☁️?! It's been an amazing week of travel, friends and work that I LOVE but I was grateful to get home in time for this session + a snuggly 🍕 date on the couch with J tonight 💛 Operation edit, edit, edit starts tomorrow & then we have a no-work weekend waiting for us! What is your TGIF 🙌🏻 bringing ya?! P.S. Hate coffee, not a Starbucks fan, but love fruity, crazy, mixed flavored things. Verdict for those who've tried the 🌈 bev?! #inquiringminds #laurafootephoto
That's a WRAP ya'll! Well, for the shoot portion of our new @scstockshop line that is! (Oh heyyyyyy editing that's waiting for me 👀😂). This was definitely one of my most challenging projects to date but I LOVED the process and have already learned so much. From trying to pose and shoot two models identically to making sure I was capturing every feature of @meganmartincreative's designs, the technical + detail juices were running high to say the least! But these baby mamas (2 months & 9 months pregnant 💪🏻!) DID it and we can't wait to share with you when the first set launches in May!
MM-Even though you're up to your ears from being trapped in the studio with me, I love you and am so glad we got to bring this to life together and thank you to @shaycochrane for trusting our crazy selves with this & encouraging us so much!! 🙌🏻💛📷🎉🦄#laurafootephoto #meganmartincreative #scstockshop
It was a 13+ work/travel day but we are WRAPPED for day one of @meganmartincreative & I's @scstockshop lifestyle line! All the desks, a sprinkle of fashion, and tomorrow we add a lounge series 😍 Thanks to @shaycochrane, @hancock.kelly, @gorgeousgirl25_, @sheahopely, @lobadesignco & @dkreatephotography for helping, cheering, styling, modeling, packing, organizing-- the list goes on! This work is a challenge to execute but in the best of ways and we'll be up and running again in a few hours to create more! BTS over on the SC account! 💕🙌🏻🎉📷 #laurafootephoto #meganmartincreative #scstockshop #iphonesneak
'Twas the night before production for the new @scstockshop lifestyle line and this gal is feeling all sorts of 😅🏃♀️🦄🎉💤🙌🏻💕 I'm jetting to Jacksonville with the sunrise for 2 full days of shooting under the direction of @meganmartincreative at the gorgeous @coworkcreative studio and friends, I'm hoping we create something you just LOVE! Follow the SC instastories tomorrow for lots of behind the scenes sneaks (I'm sure Meg will be adorable and articulate and I.... won't be 😂🙈) and thanks for cheering us on!! #meganmartincreative #laurafootephoto #scstockshop
