The Patel Family | Singer Island Family Vacation Portraits

Singer Island Family Vacation Portraits at Ocean Reef Park


Singer Island Family Vacation Portraits at Ocean Reef Park on Singer Island | Photos by Crystal Bolin Photography (1)


On Monday, May 22nd, 2017, Andrew and I had the pleasure of documenting the Patel family’s Singer Island family vacation memories! Their session took place at Ocean Reef Park on Singer Island. I love documenting family vacation portraits at this park because there are always a handful of gorgeous spots to choose from.

We began our session on the wooden deck that led directly to the beach. This wooden deck is surrounded by palm trees and many other beach plants. I love the tropical feel this spot gives. Then we moved on to the beach to one of my favorite spots! This beach is filled with flowy beachgrass and has an adorable wooden lifeguard stand. At sunset, the sun peeks through the grass and the palms in the background giving the most dreamy beach scene.

Afterward, we walked along the shoreline as Shane, their oldest son, gave the best expressions as he saw the waves approach his toes. He also tried everything in his power to dive into the water! This made for some great candid shots!

Lastly, we ended the session in, by far, the most unique part of this beach–the spot that gives this park the name, “Ocean Reef Park”–the coral rock formation on the edge of the shore. The waves crash against the rocks and the water splashes into the air, creating an incredible backdrop!

Patel Family, thank you for choosing us to document your first trip to South Florida! It was our pleasure documenting your Singer Island family vacation! We hope to work with you again!

A day at Ross Witham Beach & the House of Refuge on Hutchinson Island

A day at Ross Witham Beach & House of Refuge

A Day at Ross Witham Beach and the House of Refuge Beach on Hutchinson Island, Florida in Martin County (24)


There are many reasons why I love Florida. On any given day you can take a short or long road trip north or south along the coast. Breathtaking views surround you as you cruise along A1A. Even though I have lived in Florida my entire life, I have come to realize I have yet to discover all of the many treasures that make up this place that I like to call, paradise.

On Martin Luther King day, since Andrew and I had a day off, we decided to take a drive north up the coast. We found ourselves at Ross Witham Beach on Hutchinson Island in Martin County. Teal waters crashing against the rocky shoreline filled the scene. The view was perfection.

Just when I think I have seen all Florida has to offer, I come across absolutely stunning slice of paradise. Take a trip with us to the the rocky seashore of Ross Witham Beach! An unexpected gem just behind the historic House of Refuge in Martin County.

History about the House of Refuge

Built in the early 1900’s, The House of Refuge at Gilbert’s Bar is the only remaining House of Refuge. Built as one of ten along the east coast of Florida, it is the oldest structure in Martin County and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The Houses of Refuge were designated as havens for shipwrecked sailors and travelers along the sparsely populated Atlantic coastline of Florida. Run by the United States Lifesaving Service, the Houses played a critical role in a time when sailing ships dominated the world commerce.

Chloe’s Palm Beach Senior Portraits

Palm Beach Senior Portraits

Palm Beach Senior Portraits | Palm Beach Senior Portrait Photographer (48)


On Wednesday, January 11th, I had the pleasure of capturing Chloe’s Palm Beach senior portraits. Joy and laughter filled this session. We strolled the street of Worth Avenue together capturing lifestyle photos along the way.

When Chloe and her mom, Kelly, first reached out to me I was quite flattered. Kelly told me that they had been following my work on Instagram for over a year and Chloe had dreamt of  her Senior portrait session in Palm Beach with me! However, I felt even more flattered when she told me she lives in North Carolina and would be making the trip to Florida primarily for this! Needless to say, I was very excited to meet and work with them both.

Just as I thought, we instantly connected. Right away I felt like I had known them for years! I love how this passion of mine that I get to call my “job” allows me to meet new friends all over the country!

Chloe was such a pleasure to work with and her radiant smile filled every frame with so much joy. The session took place on colorful Palm Beach and Chloe’s Lilly Pulitzer outfits fit the scene perfectly. This shoot was one of my favorite portrait shoots to date and you’re about to see why!

Chloe and Kelly, thank you so much for choosing me to capture such an important season of   life! It was a complete honor working with you both! I look forward to working with you again! I hope you enjoy your portraits!

Emily’s Palm Beach Lifestyle Maternity Photos

Since the first day of preschool, Emily and I have been best friends. We were there for each other on those scary first days of school, throughout middle and high school mission trips, on each others wedding days and now as we set into a new seasons of life.

After Emily married the love of her life in July of 2015, she and her husband moved to Texas. Even though we don’t live in the same city anymore, we still get to see each other two or three times a year and when we are together it’s like nothing has changed. During her time in town for the holidays, we decided to capture a few maternity photos on Palm Beach Island!

Emily’s maternity session took place on the dreamy seashore of Palm Beach Island. Her lifestyle maternity shoot was a simply perfect reflection of my best friend in her favorite place–Palm Beach.

This is such an exciting season and I feel so blessed to walk through these sweet moment with her. I cannot wait to welcome little Owen Hitchcock to this world in April 2017! Here are a few of my favorite photos from her session.

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!

Laura + A.J. | Elegant Flagler Museum Wedding

An Elegant Flagler Museum Wedding in Palm Beach, Florida

Flagler Museum Wedding Photography | Elegant Flagler Museum Wedding in Palm Beach, Florida | Crystal Bolin Photography


On Saturday, September 17th Andrew and I had the honor of capturing Laura and A.J.’s elegant Flagler Museum wedding in Palm Beach, Florida. This whole wedding day was an absolute dream. A breathtaking venue, elegant details, an inviting atmosphere and the most thoughtful couple ever; it was complete perfection! This elegant Flagler Museum wedding has taken the lead as my new favorite and you’re about to see why!

Why they choose the Flagler Museum

Laura and A.J. choose to have their wedding at the Henry Morison Flagler Museum because it was one of their favorite places in all of Palm Beach, FL. They shared many dates there, A.J. proposed there (in the same room that they said, “I do”), and they had their engagement photos taken there. So naturally, their wedding had to be at the Flagler Museum too! It was “their” place and the perfect place for their wedding.

Their Love Story

Laura and A.J. met at Palm Beach Atlantic University through mutual friends in 2013. They were both involved in the school’s Student Government program, during which they became closer friends. They soon discovered that they had mutual admirations. During the Spring semester of 2014, Laura and A.J. began dating. They stood by each other as many changes and challenges arose. That year, A.J. graduated and transitioned into the workforce and summer internships took them around the country.

Their Proposal Story

On December 13th, 2015, after an early church service, they had brunch at Hullabaloo, then headed to one of their favorite spots: The Flagler Museum. One of their favorite things to do was to walk around the museum during the Christmas season because the entire estate is decorated in Christmas decor.  Laura was looking forward to spending some time alone with A.J. before she went home to Texas for the Christmas break. After walking around the museum for a while (although A.J. did keep rushing Laura through the signs and history lessons — much to her disappointment), they ended up in the Pavilion where they took a look at the train car. As they exited the train, A.J. got down on one knee and Laura immediately said, “Yes!”

Laura & A.J:

Laura and A.J., thank you so much for allowing Andrew and I the pleasure of documenting your magical wedding day! It was a complete honor, being a part your big day! Our hope and prayer is that God continues to richly bless your lives together!
