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...
It's been a busy week back in Tampa but I certainly leave a piece of my heart in NC every time we go! Between Jordan's parents, new and old creative friends, and all the adventures; every visit is full of our favorite things! And exploring downtown Charlotte with these two? One of my favorite new memories. So thankful that Rachel and Brad wanted to capture life in their new neighborhood as they transition into their professional and passion-filled careers. If you're not following Rach, you will be SO encouraged by her art and commitment to using her therapy training to bring light and life to mental health issues creatives are facing. Seriously, she's amazing! P.S. Can we talk about this painted path that leads straight to the city?! 😍💕🎉#laurafootephoto #lfpgetaway @rachel_tenny
We are going to try a few different meal subscription programs in August when J goes back to school (any that you love or general thoughts on them?!) but until then, hi-ho-hi-ho to the grocery store I go! At least chicken avacado tacos, gyro wraps and salmon + risotto made the "get back on track with food after living out of other people's houses" plan 😂🍴And the shopping chore was made much prettier thanks to @traderjoes' always on point florals and my favorite new strappy @callitspring heels 🌿🎀 #footesintheheights #sundayfunday #orsomethinglikethat
So grateful for this spontaneous week in the Carolinas with family and more convinced than ever that summer is made for craft 🍸, 🍤 + risotto, hair up/headband on attire 💁🏼and patio hangs at dusk! While I'm a little overwhelmed to get back home to a house that needs to be put back together + J heading back to work, I know we can do it while keeping the lets keep hangin' at the table, vibes going! ☀️
I think about last year at this time-- in the pre-senior year trenches with K, 1 month into small business full-time life, navigating a lot of transition with friends and community as a whole. It was such a bittersweet season-- to be on the horizon of an exciting new chapter with work but simultaneously lonely, overwhelmed and anxious in the day-to-day. Had you told me a month later I would be pregnant I seriously would have gone running! But here we are, a year later, and I'm so grateful for how the story was written 💕
P.S. I'd like to be dining here tonight with good friends under bistro lights (tap for vendors! 😍) but a fast food car picnic it is! Because summer is about community and adventure, however and whenever I can get it 🙌🏻🎉🍴🌿 #laurafootephoto #messyheartmusings
Well it's official- my unrelenting commitment to water aerobics into #41weekspregnant made for a 🐠 of a baby girl who tried her first swim today and loved it! These first experiences with her are precious to me. I think they are the thing I love the most about parenting so far- all the newness God cultivates and all the fresh joy it brings 💕 This picture J took reminds me of one we have of my dad and I in a Holiday Inn pool sometime in 1988. I'm wearing a one shoulder leopard situation and he's holding me to float. Ahhhh now it's our turn (sans animal print 😂) and it's just the best kind of crazy! Now off to more firsts for her- a food 🚚 rally and 🍻 visit after an amazing 📷 for our friends Rachel and Brad! (I promise we are decent parents 😜) #TGIF #footesgetaway #ourmccartney
Summertime in the south: definitely on my list of happy things in life! The sweet tea, lightning bugs, porch hangs, kind people, and even the hot air that sticks to ya like a hug--I love it all! So don't remind me that J has to report back to school in less than 2 weeks 🙈 As my girl Scarlett says, "I won't think about that today, I'll think about that tomorrow" 💕👒🍋#namethatmovie #itsmyfav #footesgetaway
So so fun hugging this chick today after meeting her at the fall @creativeatheartconference! Thank you for inviting me to try and break my Disney handwriting habits and letting me take some photos for you, Maghon! Also, Vance is the most handsome babe 😍! Grateful for momma creative friends who are so intentional to be generous with their gifts and joy! Such a fun morning 🎉💕 @allshewrotenotes
When in North Carolina we pregame my chef of a father in law's amazing seafood dinners with .... 🍩🍩🍩 And I don't feel bad about it-- the donuts or the general eating we do here 😂🍴🙌🏻💕P.S. If I could be a donut I'd be the vanilla sprinkly guy in the corner 👀 #spiritfood @duckdonuts #footesgetaway #foodies
Spent this morning with Jack and his crew celebrating his first birthday. Cake before 10am and the whole gallery delivered by 11am?! Yes! Can't believe a year ago *today* we were taking his newborn photos! Now we've got our baby loaded and are en route to North Carolina! This drive is one she'll grow up doing a couple times a year and I know, just like I was reminded with Jack today, that she'll grow up fast and each trip will be different as she does. Soaking in today but secretly excited for the trips when I'll pass McD's french fries back to her while we sing along to broadway tunes! 💛 P.S. I do have one more session slot open while we're in #Raleigh! Message me to snag it! 🎉📷#laurafootephoto #babylove
Decided today to load the car up again and take a big road trip to Jordan's parents in Raleigh next week! Sort of convinced we should put our house on AirBnB and do the RV thing for a year. J's not as sure but he knows I'm not kidding. I love being on the road as much as I like being at home, which I guess is kind of contradicting, but if my home could be ON the road I would seriously love it! Anyone else wanna live the RV life with me?! 🙋🏼💛🚗 P.S. I'm available for shoots and coaching in Raleigh next week and I could have a Savannah opening next Saturday, too! And don't get me started on the fact that I get to shoot @rachel_tenny and her beau in Charlotte at their neighborhood food truck/brewery night 😍🎉🙌🏻 #imherefortheroadtripsnacks #footesgetaway
As the house is in total disarray from the flood and we are reorganizing.... everything (🤣) I'm thinking about this crew. Four friends brought into my life over 5 years and seasons and a couple months ago we were all in the same place for about an hour! So much unseen grace here-- miracle babies, job changes, marriage journeys and callings of talent and passion. It's hard to describe what these women have invited me to walk alongside them through but on days like today, when I'm in the thick of my kind of uncomfortable, I'm grateful for how their lives have impacted mine in a way that has refined and shaped me. For real life texts and phone calls, even today as Danielle gets ready to have their baby girl! And for a photo that will hang in our guest room as a reminder of what really matters. Anyone else fight the temptation to chase illusive social media numbers, $s and noteriety when the stuff that you'll remember and care about in 50 years is right in front of you? Guilty and grateful for grace 🙋🏼 And excited to see how good the 5 of us look in 2067 😅👵🏻👵🏻👵🏻👵🏻👵🏻💛 #messyheartmusings #lifeincommunity #joythatisfull
