Photo Session Locations

To achieve a truly unaffected portrait, there’s nothing better than a natural stage. And here in northeast Florida, we’re blessed with some stunning scenery. There are three beauty spots in St Augustine that I like to use for my portraits: Marineland Beach, Lewis Point Park, and North Holiday Lake Park at Vaill Point Road.

Each of these locations offer a wonderful backdrop and fantastic light. Read below to learn more about these sites and the best time of day for a photo shoot. However, if you’d rather that I come to your home, that’s not a problem. You may also use another place, although you may need a property owner’s release form.
