In the midst of my daily routine, my sister contacts me and asks me to visit her in Colorado Springs. I thought to myself, wow, I've always wanted to see the mountains and what better reason than to secretly get away with a valid reason! To Colorado Springs within 2 days! I absolutely could not wait for the trip. I purchased a coat with a lining and packed with just a carry on. Half of my suitcase was for my camera equipment.
In Colorado the mountains are an orange clay color. Garden of the Gods is a National Natural Landmark. I've always had a dream of taking photos with a mountain backdrop. And lucky me, we had a family portrait session at Garden of the Gods.
The Stewarts are just a lovely couple and their children were just full of energy and excited for the photos!
Date City is a city in Pasco City, Florida. Its known for its historic feel. With a population of 70,000 residents, the local economy has relied on agriculture mainly citrus and cattle production. Its located just a drive away from the Tampa Bay are and Lakeland.
A hidden gem perfect for your next event or wedding is Stonebridge Weddings & Events. Its tucked away from the city streets and has a fairytale setting complete with two options, an Air conditioned Southern Blue Barn or The Garden House for you to select from.
The Southern Blue Barn can entertain up to 150 guests, includes a built in bar, natural wood farm tables and wood chairs. Adding to the ambiance are string lights along the outside courtyard.
For a bride thats looking for glam, The Garden House can entertain up to 250 guests, includes a bar area, marble floors, and a gorgeous crystal chandelier. Stepping outside you'll be under an open air terrace, with a tranquil fountain for your viewing pleasure.
The wedding vows can take place outdoors under the "I DO" tree, Joshua Tree, or the Large Oak Tree. Earlier this month I had the opportunity to attend a vendor event at Stonebridge and connected with many great individuals who all come together to make a wedding day memorable and special. Below are some images captured from this gorgeous venue.
Maternity Session | Outdoor Maternity Photographer | Moss Park Photographer | Lake Nona Photographer | Maternity Photographer
As a photographer in Lake Nona, you must know all the awesome locations for portraits. Taking into consideration the time of the photo session and also the location, Moss Park was perfect! This city park location was ideal with its abundance of pine trees and oak trees that make the perfect lush green backdrop for a photo session. Other than the greenery, deer and sand cranes are often spotted during the day and can also be a great addition to any portrait session. Also, did I mention they have a campground, hiking trails, and water activities as well! With a car packed full of photography equipment and maternity session props, it was time to capture some amazing connections. I did wish I could have my dog tag along with my photo sessions, but of course it’s not always ideal.
