Tampa Bay Area Boudoir, Maternity and Family Photographer

Connection PhotographyTampa Family Portraits

Hi there! My name is Patty Cannon (I swear it is my real name and by the way I shoot Nikon!) I'm really excited that you are considering me to be your photographer!!


When I was a kid, I could never have imagined how my life would unfold. But, along this journey some amazing things have happened. Now, I find myself living in this wonderful city with my amazing partner in life, parenting, love and everything else, our twin daughters, born on Halloween of '07 (that I refer to as the LGs), two dogs, a cat named Pizza, and another cat named Cookie. (in case you are wondering the LGs named the cats...) My partner Julie and I have been together for 20 years, and along the way we have documented our life. My passion for documenting our family's milestones eventually spilled over to wanting to do the same for other families. Doing so makes my heart sing! 

If you book me this is how I will look 99% of the time we are together:

If I brought my kids to a shoot this is what it would look like:

(I do not bring my kids to shoots. This was a photographer meet-up. Thank you Brooke at Hamilton Creek Photography for capturing this moment!) 

Here is what you can expect  from a photo-shoot with me:

I like natural photos...Not too much posing or props. Don't expect roses or tiny cowboy hats. I want to capture your family as you are. Expect laughing and general silliness. You will be at your best if you are relaxed and having fun. For me it's not about the perfect pose or smiling into the camera with a plastered on smile,  it's about showing the connection. Showing the love, the fun, the emotion and the quirks of your family.   The best compliment I have ever gotten is when a dad looked at me on the way back to our cars and said, "You know what, Patty? That was fun." And he meant it.  

I want to know about you and your crew. Personalities, likes, dislikes...and yes...even quirks. It's the quirks that make us who we are.

Life is messy and complicated, but simple and lovely, all at the same time. Let's get started! 

Contact me so I can talk to you about your session!
