Ilany & Ray: Hugh Taylor Birch State Park Children’s Session

I had the pleasure of shooting these two adorable kiddos at a new location, Hugh Taylor Birch State Park. This large state park is located in downtown Fort Lauderdale right across from the beach off of Sunrise Blvd. The first thing that surprised me was that the park was huge! I spent about 30 mins before they arrived driving the 2.5 mile (one way) loop around the park and finding all the little incredible spaces that were tucked away off the road.

Our first stop was the children’s park. Ilany is 10 years old and Ray is almost 3, so I knew I wanted to take them to a spot where they could play and interact. They loved the swings and it was a good way to get them loosened up!

Their mom, Evelyn, calls this collage “attitude!” I crack up everytime I look at Ray’s “angry” face. He’s just such a cutie!

Next, we headed to the middle of the park where a massive, 100 year old Banyan tree sits.

Lastly, just as the sun was leaving the sky, we spent some time letting the kids play in the sand & water, which both of them loved.

It was a fun afternoon capturing Ilany & Ray in a great Florida nature spot. A big thank you to their mommy, my good friend Evelyn, for trusting me to capture her awesome kids!

National Dance Day: Boynton Beach Inlet

Saturday, July 27th was National Dance Day, and I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate then to go and take some test pictures with my gorgeous sister.

We headed to the Boynton Beach Inlet Saturday evening, even though it had been raining all day and the weather didn’t look good. Luckily, the weather actually held up and the light was incredible!

First, we spent some time on the “land” side, experimenting with all the great trees that can be found in the park.

Next we headed to the beach side to take a few more shots with the ocean for our backdrop.

The inlet is a gorgeous location and I can’t wait to shoot there for in August for my End of Summer Mini Sessions!
