Outer Banks Family Portraits Morning Session

We had a really rainy week this week. This family portrait session was switched to a morning session. It was a gorgeous morning! We met up on the beach 30 minutes after sunrise. It was a little windy but the temperature was perfect and the sky was beautiful!

Rodanthe, NC Family Portraits The Army Family

We had portraits scheduled for this family in Rodanthe, NC. Unfortunately a storm was growing and it wasn’t going to work at our location. We decided to drive south toward Avon, NC to avoid the storm. It worked out perfectly! We were able to hold our session with no threat of the storm.

Outer Banks Beach Portraits Family Photography

We have worked with this family many times. The first time was for their wedding. We photographed their birth announcement but couldn’t share it until their beautiful baby arrived since the sex and name of the baby was a surprise for everyone. Eleanor is now here and I got to meet her this summer! I will share those images soon!

Wright Brothers Monument Family Portrait Kill Devil Hills

We often donate portrait sessions to local charities. This family had won their session by bidding on it through a silent auction. They wanted to try something different for their session. Most of our portrait session are on the beach but I was up for the challenge. We met at the base of the Memorial and decided to start there and work our way up. What a wonderful and historic place for  a session and the view from the top is gorgeous! If you are going to book your session at this location there are some things you need to know.
The hours they are open doesn’t always work well with the lighting. Scheduling this location is better in the fall and winter when the sun goes down early.
You have to work around the other tourists (another reason to do this shoot off season).
There is a fee to enter the park.

Beach Family Photos Coquina Beach

We had so much fun with this busy couple, their twins and their two beautiful daughters. The photo shoot was at Coquina beach in Nags Head. This is one of my favorite places to hold family beach portraits. This beach is gorgeous, it has bathrooms and showers, and in this case the wildlife comes to greet you. There was a young buck that was curious as to what we were doing.
