DeSoto National Memorial Photography | Location Highlight
If you're looking for a location that's off the beaten path, why not try Bradenton's DeSoto National Memorial for your next Photography Session. Located in Palma Sola, right at the mouth of the Manatee River, DeSoto Nation Memorial is our favorite (non-beach) location for Photo Sessions. This beautiful local park has so much to offer for all kinds of Photography. For Family Sessions for Christmas cards, romantic Engagement Pictures, sweet Maternity Sessions, and even Head Shots, the versatility of this park makes it great for almost any type of pictures you're looking for. This quiet park is never crowded, and I just can't figure out why! Only once have I ever bumped into another photographer doing a session out here. As you walk through the quiet canopied paths, it's easy to loose yourself in the moment, which helps to ensure that we are capturing beautiful, genuine moments in every photograph. Take a walk with me through some of my favorite spots at this amazing location, and when you're done, if you love this spot as much as we do, be sure to Contact Us to book your photo session at DeSoto National Memorial. When you first arrive, the entrance to the path through the mangroves makes you feel like you're about to enter a fairy tail forest.
Sunset's are beautiful anywhere, including here, but the morning light as it sparkles through the leaves of the canopy is pretty hard to beat in our opinion! Take a moment to bask in the beauty of the forest as the sun rises higher to greet the day and mother nature begins to work her magic.
DeSoto National Memorial has a beautiful boardwalk through the tidal flood areas that just begs to be photographed. The red mangroves grow here, with their arching root structure dancing over the water, and their twisting branches tracing paths against a silhouetted sky. These pictures can be intimate, or epic. You make the moment, I just capture it!
The trees here are both lovely and inviting. So don't be surprised if I suggest that you get in nice and close and let these natural beauties become a more intimate part of your picture. Take a seat on an inviting branch, or lean into a strong trunk for an intimate, pensive moment, but whatever you do, just don't let the moment pass you by.
The slow moving waters of the Manatee River are an ever present feature here at DeSoto National Memorial, and chances are that, sooner or later, you'll see your photographer ditch her shoes, roll up her pants, and wade out into the water to capture that perfect picture. Don't worry, my camera will stay high an dry, but I never mind getting a little wet to make sure that every photograph from your session is amazing!
There are so many beautiful spots to see, and so many memories to capture, so here's just a touch of the rest of what this lovely park has to offer.
