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”!
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
It was a seriously hot day, but none the less as picturesque as can be. With vivid blue Floridian skies and soft fluffy clouds, I was off to photograph some Family Portraits at Disney’s Magic Kingdom for Candice and her adorable family who were visiting Orlando on a family vacation.
This power couple travels all over the world and always makes sure to capture the fun through professional photographs. I always love photographing at Magic Kingdom because the staff are extremely lenient, flexible and helpful. The grounds are always perfectly primed and you rarely have bored or agitated children during family pictures. An extra perk is the many facilities where you can take a break and cool off as Florida can be dangerously hot in the summer time.
We had such a blast! one of my favorite moments: breaking for french fries and getting to see all of their recent traveling pictures including from Paris and Mexico.
Being an avid traveler myself, I’ve realized during the last few years that I feel the most alive when experiencing life through traveling and learning about different cultures. We definitely bonded through our love for exploring this beautiful planet!
I don’t think I’ve ever photographed an event that smelled better than the Pink Zebra Reunion conference at Hilton Bonnet Creek. And I’ve Photographed a cake fair before!
Pink Zebra is a fragrance company whose signature product is Soy based fragrant sprinkles that you use with a heating lamp to make your whole home smell delicious. They offer some really amazing products – even I had to stock up on a bunch myself! I was sold after sitting in for three days!
The conference was attended by over 500 women and men from all over the state who were super excited to learn about the 2017 fall catalog launch. I had such a wonderful time connecting with, and photographing all of the attendees!
