Portraits Session in Cypress Grove Estate House
I had such a fun time photographing Angel and Amanda’s Portrait Session in Cypress Grove Estate House earlier last week. Since December is both of their birthday months- they wanted some fun birthday images along with more fashionable portraits.
They both moved from New York to Florida earlier to escape the cold weather. The weather was absolutely perfect on the day of our shoot with temperatures in the upper 70’s and there was not a single cloud in the sky. Cypress Grove estate park sits on a beautiful lake and the sunsets are just gorgeous there. We started our session out with their casual birthday t-shirts and ended the shoot with a more elegant and dressy look- perfect for more dramatic sunset pictures.
Angel is currently in school and Amanda is an actress and a talented dancer. Their beautiful mother showed up to pick them up as we neared the end of our session. We all rallied her to take at least one picture with her girls which ended up being one of my favorite images from our session! look how cute they look!
I’m so lucky to get to live in a place where you can still comfortably photograph in parks in the middle of the “winter”!

Carolyn and Phil’s Bok Tower Gardens Engagement Session
Bok tower garden is such a beautiful location for engagement and portrait sessions. I was thrilled when Carolyn and Phil decided to have our session there last week. Bok Tower Gardens is centrally located between Tampa and Orlando among rolling hills of citrus in beautiful & historic Lake Wales, Florida and is a National Historic Landmark. The gardens are filled with exotic greenery, water features, and unique architecture.
Carolyn and Phil are the sweetest people that you will ever meet. They are truly best friends and I wanted to capture their love story and friendship authentically. We are having an unusually warm winter this year here in Florida. I’m pretty sure that all of the plants are confused as to what season it is because it is starting to look a lot like spring. Flowers are in bloom everywhere. We used this fact to our advantage and got to photograph with some beautiful floral backgrounds.
There is an orange farm right before the main entrance of Bok Tower Gardens that is just beautiful. Across the street from the orange farm are fields of grass and pine trees. We ended our shoot there for some sunset pictures and used some creative lighting techniques to create an ethereal effect. I just love how these images came out and loved that I got to work with such a beautiful couple!
