Enchanted Photography Session: Eden Garden’s State Park
Eden Garden's State Park - Santa Rosa Beach. Florida
This session is so awesome that I have to break it up into 2 posts! You can see Part II here! This session was for a photographer by the name of Heather Bookout and her beautiful family. When she first contacted me she knew she wanted to have her session split at Eden and at the Beach. I love both places so of course I did a little happy dance at the thought of both locations. We met in the parking lot at Eden Garden’s State Park. I was floored at how gorgeous her girls are and how incredible they all looked. I mean look at their hair and those dresses?! Talk about dreamy! We explored Eden and it’s beautiful scenery and light. I took the oldest daughter over in a giant pocket of light and admired her beautiful doe eyes. I watched the girls play with their father and love on their mother and it was just magical. Heather mentioned that her husband, Ben and her had just celebrated their 16th wedding anniversary so of course I had to get some images of these love birds together to celebrate that big milestone. When it seemed so incredibly perfect, the mosquitos came in full force and we had to cut our Eden party just a little short. We packed up and headed over to Grayton Beach State Park and played as the light dropped below the gulf water. Stay tuned for those beauties!
I used pretty much all of my equipment for both locations. Keep an eye out for my “what’s in her bag” post soon! I also wanted to mention that Nichole Burnett Photography is on Instagram! I post a ton of sneak peeks that you can’t see on Facebook and I post a bunch of personal work that I have yet to share anywhere else. You can follow NBP here and if you are feeling really gutsy you can follow my personal account here. My personal Instagram is full of snippets of my life that are made to be beautiful. If you want to see my baby scream, my messy house, and my real life– follow me on snapchat. My username is NicholeBurnett and it can’t get much more real than that! ;)
Most Treasured Moment
Sometimes preteens are a little shy in front of the camera so getting a natural smile can be tough. My favorite part of this session was watching Gabriella open up and get more comfortable around me. I love watching that trust unfold! It's just like magic. :)
