South Tampa has lots of great spots for photo sessions of any kind – weddings, engagement or family portraits for that matter. Earlier this week I’ve had the pleasure of shooting a Christmas Portraits session with Emily and Cory (and their cute dog Beans). They picked Fred Ball park on Bayshore and it turned out to be an excellent location – quiet, with lots of shade, beautiful gazebo and right next the water. I was already familiar with it as I’ve photographed Liz and Brandon’s bridal party there last Spring.
I met Emily and Cory at the park about an hour before the sunset and we started with some pictures of the three of them. Beans’ patience ran out rather quickly, but by then we already managed to capture few very cool photos. At that point Beans volunteered to watch my camera bag while we proceeded with the portraits of Emily and Cory alone. We shot in the park for a little while and then walked out onto Bayshore for few more fun photos before the sun disappeared behind the horizon. Despite the cold evening weather we had a lot of fun and I hope the pictures shows it. Here are few of my favorites, enjoy!
