Southeast Georginian (Georgia)
Living in Georgia has fully made me a lover of nature. Georgia is split in two parts. You have North GA and South GA. I was always jealous of the north because they get to see snow sometimes. As a NYC native, I miss the snow fall. But, in Southeast Georgia you are opened up to such gorgeous terrain. We get a little kiss of what tropical life is like while still enjoying the beauty of lush Oak and Cedar trees. These places I will list are to die for when it comes to shooting outdoors. You won't want to miss. From Spanish Moss to our tan beaches with character. This is my list of favorites. Do you see yours?
When I moved here this was the first place a client dragged me and I couldn't have been happier. I love it when a beach isnt just sand and shoreline. You can't go wrong with the rocks on the shore, abandoned ship off the coast and driftwood trees adorning the beach sands. Its' a stunning place for maternity and portraits. I have photographed countless clients here and it never gets old for me.
This park is part of Savannah's deep rooted history. Though I have only been once, while there we witnessed a wedding, vow renewal, family portraits, pet portraits and our maternity session all within an hour. Though the streets were busy, I was able to capture this stunning momma in the middle of the busiest entrance. If you turn the opposite direction, there is this gorgeous large fountain in the very center of the park. If you are ever in Savannah, GA make sure you stop to look at this beauty.
Wormsloe Historic Site
Rows and rows, and even more rows, of cascading trees as far as the eye can see. Dripping from these interlocking trees is all the Spanish Moss your heart can possibly desire. Though the path under the trees is the main road in and out, at a certain time you get blessed with no traffic. That is when I took mom out to get her under these amazing trees. It was truly a sight to see. The golden light peeking through, best fall breeze and all the lush glory nature has to offer. This site now requires admission, so just be prepared for that!
St. Marys, GA's famous Sugar Mill Ruins. This little nook in the woods is dripping with history, crumbling walls and little entraces into its standing remains. Kids love to run around and play while getting all that energy out. Others love to walk the trails. I came here for the first time 6 years ago. I was so amazed by the preservation of the land. You do run the risk of seeing snakes, large spiders and being greeted by tons of mosquitoes. When you get pass that, you can appreciate it that much more!
