Fontainebleau State Park in Mandeville is a very popular location for family portrait sessions on the northshore, featuring plenty of beautiful moss-covered oak trees and numerous great spots for photographs. This image is from a session for a wedding client who wanted some nice pictures of her with her daughters.
During the years of 1829-1852, Bernard de Marigny, founder of the town of Mandeville, operated a plantation and sugar mill as well as a brickyard on this site. In 1938, it opened as Tchefuncte State Park and Conservation Reservation, being renamed to Fountainebleau State Park in 1943. The decaying remains of the sugar mill are still present.
