Marissa & Calvin | Frenchman’s Forest Engagement

A Frenchman’s Forest Engagement

On Sunday, October 7th, 2018, Andrew and I had the honor of capturing Marissa and Calvin’s dreamy Frenchman’s Forest Engagement session! Their session took place in the afternoon of that fall day. The light was peeking through the trees, and the quiet breeze swayed the tree ever so gracefully.

Marissa and Calvin are just about as sweet as it gets! I’ve known Marissa since she was a toddler, and capturing her happiness gave me such joy. To see her now—so in love and nothing but smiles—was a beautiful sight. Their love is a beautiful reflection of what a God-honoring relationship looks like.

Marissa and Calvin, thank you so much for making the trip down so we could capture your engagement photos! We had such a great time working with you both! We can’t wait to capture your big day!!

On December 23rd, 2017, Andrew and I had the pleasure of capturing Marlena and Drew’s Worth Avenue engagement photos! These two are the cutest together! We had such a great time strolling along the street of Worth Avenue with them as we chatted about their wedding!

Their session began towards the westward part of Worth Avenue and ended on the beach. They had two outfits, a dressy and a casual one. Since Drew is in the Air Force he wore his sharp uniform for his first outfit and Marlena wore a gorgeous white dress. For their second look they went with a casual outfit perfect for sunset portraits on the beach.

Marlena and Drew, thank you for choosing us to document your engagement photos! It was such a pleasure working with you both! We wish you all the best in this exciting season of wedding planning!

Brooke & Frank | Palm Beach Maternity Christmas Portraits

Palm Beach Maternity Christmas Portraits

Palm Beach Maternity Christmas Portraits | Palm Beac Portrait Photographer | Crystal Bolin Photography (2)


It’s that time of year! Time to snuggle up close with the one you love, share some cheer and have some Christmas portraits taken! These Palm Beach maternity Christmas portraits were special ones because they were for our dear friends Frank and Brooke who have a very precious Christmas gift on its way! As you may remember, back in early November I shared their pregnancy announcement photos. And for this shoot, they are excited to announce the gender of their baby!

Last weekend, they had a Christmas gender reveal party. The theme was “Baby it’s cold outside”! How cute is that!? Brooke and Frank wanted to be surprised along with everyone else at the party so in the weeks leading up to the party Brooke asked if I would be the person to find out, keep the secret and find something Christmas related for them to open at the party that would reveal the gender of their baby. I was so honored to be the first know and couldn’t wait to find the perfect gift! Once I received the envelope from the doctor stating the gender, I immediately went out looking for a Christmas ornament!

After searching at a few places, I found the perfect one. “There is no greater gift than the love of a son”, it read. That’s right, they are having a BOY! When they opened it at the party and read it, their faces were priceless. It was a perfect moment.

The following day, we captured a few joyful Christmas maternity portraits in Palm Beach, Florida. Here are a few of our favorites! Enjoy!
