The Beauty of Florida - Year In Review 2016

The Beauty of the Treasure Coast

Last year I vowed to get out more and photograph the beauty of my new home here in Florida. Unfortunately, most of my travel plans which included a trip to St. Augustine, Florida and a return trip home to California were postponed because of health issues with my dog Logan. (He's making great progress but he is getting older).

The year started off with a trip down to Fort Lauderdale for a couple nights. While I was visiting I had the opportunity to check out Lauderdale-by-the-Sea and Pampano Beach. Both have terrific piers. One of my highlights was dining at Casa Fida Mexican Cuisine. If you haven't checked it out, it's worth a visit. Very good eats and vibe.

Most of the year was spent photographing local area locations that I've found along the Treasure Coast since relocating from California. Some of my favorite go-to spots are in Sebastian (Sebastian Inlet State Park), Wabasso (Rock City Gardens), Vero Beach (McKee Botanical Garden), Fort. Pierce (Fort Pierce Inlet State Park), and Stuart (House of Refuge & Bathtub Reef Beach). Below is a round up of images taken this year that I haven't added to the portfolio page plus a couple newly processed images. Hope you enjoy!

Wishing you and your family a Happy New Year!

California to Florida, the new chapter begins...

After many years of living, working and playing in California, I find myself relocating to Florida. On one hand it's hard to let go of what I know and love, and on the other hand, it's good to say hello to the things I've loved and missed for so many years. I have a great opportunity ahead and I'm going to dive straight in.

Logan, Julia and myself made the 2600 mile drive and what a journey it was. From narrowly escaping floods in Arizona to dealing with hot weather the entire way, we arrived safely here in our new home of Vero Beach, Florida. 

As I begin to settle in, I hope to start capturing the beauty of both the Atlantic and Gulf coasts of Florida. It will probably take me some time to find my way, so please be patient.  If you have suggestions on shoots, locations, adventures, have questions or wish to inquire about my services, please drop me an email. I'd love to hear from you. Cheers!
