Photos in the Sunshine State

Whether you want photos right on the beach, or amongst the beautiful Spanish moss covered trees, or something in between, there are many options to choose from! Let's explore below, or feel free to suggest a spot of your own!

Cypress point is an unassuming park spot hidden behind an office park that offers a small but beautiful white sandy beach area with interesting tree foliage as well as palms. There are tall grassy areas and walking trails as well!

our lady of divine providence

Our Lady of Divine Providence is a beautiful and serene waterfront garden covered in spiritual statues and trees full of Spanish moss. Stone bridges and a quiet path lead you throughout the beautiful grounds of this sacred space.


Tampa Murals & YBOr city

If you are feeling tapped out on beaches and parks, how about hopping around to some of the street out that is featured throughout Tampa. Most of it can be found along Franklin Street and the side streets that stem from there. There's also some to be found in and around Hyde Park. Additionally there is a lot of character to be found in YBOR city, so it's worth taking the family to explore!

additional locations

There are many more beautiful spaces in and around the Tampa and Clearwater region or even going a bit further towards St Pete and beyond. Some may also require photography permits purchased with some advance notice. Spots like Hillsborough River State Park, Ft Desoto, Madiera Beach, Sand Key Beach Park, Vinoy Park, Straub Park, murals in St. Pete, and more. I am always happy to meet at one of these locations if you are interested in one. Any required entrance or permit fees are the responsibility of the client.
