Oh my heart! We certainly LOVE senior sessions! Especially when we get to shoot at two locations. I just had to write and share about this session. Eden Garden State Park in Santa Rosa Beach and Grayton Beach State Park were the perfect locations for this creative senior's portraits. There are so many good ones to share, check them out!
We started at Eden Gardens State Park for this gorgeous senior's portraits. It's so very "Florida" with the Oak trees and azaleas.
Eden Gardens State Park contains approximately 115 acres of perfectly manicured land with a historic mansion that boasts a beautiful location for outdoor events and portraits.
In a setting of moss-draped live oaks, the 1895 mansion remembers a prosperous timebefore the untouched forests of longleaf pine and cypress were exhausted in this part of the state. Eden Garden depicts the history of the region as it evolved in response to the economic, cultural and social conditions that shaped and defined our modern Florida. We are so blessed to have it here, in Santa Rosa Beach. It brings so much more life and character to the 30A area!
Grayton Beach State Park is where we headed to catch the last bit of the setting sun along the beach. It's just a short drive from Eden Garden. The soft light was perfect this evening and we were able to capture more beautiful poses - both in and out of the water!
Can you believe we got MORE pictures than this?! Yup! We sure did. Honestly, it's not unusual for Amy and me to shoot, shoot, shoot! Why stop when you're having so much fun? We always make to make sure you get the happy moments along with the posed portraits. That's what our clients say they love about us. We put no limit on how many portraits and candid pictures are included in our galleries. Whatever turns out is always included. After all, its the beach. Not a studio. We're there to for the gorgeous scenery and to play.
You know, being a beach photographer is the best job ever. It is something Amy and I have worked very hard at perfecting! Take my advice and do your research when choosing a beach portrait photographer. Call him or her. Ask questions! You should get a feel for his or her attitude and professionalism. The portrait and wedding clients we serve are usually in the Santa Rosa Beach,30A, Rosemary Beach, Alys Beach, Seaside, Inlet Beach, Destin, Seagrove Beach and Grayton Beach areas. This means we serve a lot of vacationers. Your vacation time is precious, so don't just hire any beach photographer for your portrait session! If Amy and I are both booked we always refer our clients to other trusted local professional photographers. Contact us if you'd like to book or if you have any questions. We love to help!
