One day back in May, I think it was, my friend Darby invited me out to go hiking on a nature trail with her on Sanibel. It was pretty cool and a fun way to spend the day. Once we got back we went fishing with her brother and another one of our friends. Im always glad I bring my camera along on these adventures.
I went through a phase in January of 2015 where I just wanted to explore more. And thats exactly what I did. From different state parks to nature trails, I learned Florida’s beauty is way more than meets the eye. Florida has so many hidden gems just waiting to be discovered. I still go on hikes, but this one month consisted of at least two a week to different locations. One evening I was trying to burn time before going over to a friends house so I went to a local beach called Bunch Beach. And I’m glad I did because what a surprise it was to find one of the coolest photographic experiences seemingly just waiting for me. A wild osprey dining on a sea trout. Totally a memorable experience. Here are the photos I took while at the beach!
Now that I have finished high school and am on my summer break before college, I seem to have found myself with not only an abundance of time and photos, but a want to continue with my blog. My photos need a place to go. I realize that everyone goes through phases with blogging, from scheduled blogging to blogging ever so often, I know I have done this as well. My goal with this blog, from the beginning, was just to give my photos a place to go, which is something I feel I have not strayed from. Despite taking breaks from it one thing is always certain. I continue to take photos. So I hope I can continue to update my blog with those photos. This blog post contains photos from back in January of 2015. I found myself extremely into my local swamp sanctuary called the Six Mile Slough. I found myself visiting it at least once a week. I couldn’t believe my eyes, all the different species and types of animals and plants I saw. Just waiting for me to discover them. The following photos are just my take of a few of the walks I went on into the swamp. Enjoy.
One day, on the way home from a portrait session last month, I happened to glance out my car window and see this magical place on the side of the road. Definitely a hidden gem. The next day, I went back, pulled over and took out my camera, and explored. I really want to do a portrait session here during golden hour. One day, hopefully one day soon. Anyway yeah, enjoy the photos, I hope you see it like I do. Enjoy
I was on location for a shoot for a client and she was late. Too bad for her because she missed the best light of the day! I couldn’t help myself and just had to shoot around the area. Truly beautiful.
Took a trip up to the Tampa Aquarium towards the end of last year. Fun shooting some animals you don’t typically see. Toughest part was shooting through the glass. Still a great time with the family.
Went to Hawaii in july and oh man it was the trip of a lifetime. I can not believe the stellar photos that came out of it. Not only was it an awesome family trip but everything was super photogenic! Enjoy
