Rebecca and Dennis’s Family Session at Cypress Grove Estate House
I Love watching families and their children grow. This was the case when photographing Rebecca and Dennis’s Beautiful family. Their two gorgeous girls grew so much since the last time I did their family portraits. They flew in from the Netherlands for their annual Florida vacation and left in time to dodge the hurricane (Irma). Along with their immediate family members, we headed to Cypress Grove Estate Park to capture some late morning pictures.
I Love photographing at Cypress Grove Estate Park not only because it is a beautiful Park located adjacent to a large lake, but because you don’t need a permit to have a photoshoot there- which is a huge plus, especially for last minute photo shoots. The Park sits on 80 Acres of perfectly manicured lawns, all on the cusp of Lake Jessamine. The Mature Cypress trees aren’t bad either! They brought along their siblings this time and I had such a blast capturing all of the fun. Rebeccas Parents were also celebrating their 40th Wedding Anniversary! What a perfect way to capture such a beautiful time in their lives with all of their kids
When my clients whipped out a pair of gorgeously embellished, Royal Blue Indian outfits as their outfit change, my creative senses instantly perked up and my senses enlivened. I strive for diversity. I was highly impressed with my clients sense of style and openness. Being world travelers, Sylvester and his beautiful wife are the main pastors at their church, floodgates of heaven.
We were happy to put a cent in for their preaching mission with these beautiful images.
The portrait session took place at the beautiful Cypress Grove Estate Park, which is conveniently located just a 5 minute drive from our home. It’s hard to believe that its Christmas week already. Growing up in Sweden, It does not feel like Christmas unless the floor is covered with 5 inches of snow. As I get older, I tend to enjoy the summer more than winter. The 80 degree weather during the shoot and endless sun made me realize how lucky we are to live in Florida!
