While I’m pretty fortunate to live relatively close to so many amazing gulf coast beaches that make for some amazing backdrops for some sunset family photos, sometimes a trip to those beaches aren’t already the most practical for those living on the north and east side of Tampa. For this, I’m forever grateful that we have an amazing Bay between St Petersburg and Tampa that allows us some space to get those photos of the sun dipping below the horizon, but without causing my clients to travel too far for their photos. One of these favorite spots of mine is Cypress Point Park. It offers a bit of beach, some sea grass and trails, a playground for little ones and even some amazing sites as you can watch planes fly into and out of Tampa International Airport (which is a hop, skip, and a stone throw away from the park). This park worked perfectly for the Laguna Family who only had a short window to grab some extended family photos while everyone was in town for the holidays. Let me say they were one of the best looking crews with their coordinating black, red, and beige color scheme too! Below are some of my favorites from this session. Enjoy!
