Rodanthe Sunrise Family Portraits

The first week of June was a very wet week. We had to reschedule some of our clients. The McCann family was rescheduled to a morning session. We photographed the McCann family in Rodanthe at sunrise. It was such a gorgeous morning. The sky was gorgeous and this family was so nice and wonderful to work with. Here is their gorgeous family portrait session.

Rainy Duck Family Beach Portraits

We had a wonderful family visiting the Duck,NC area on the Outer Banks in August of 2014. Unfortunately, the rain threw a wrench in our plans to do beach portraits. We did get the opportunity to run out to the beach during a break in the rain and get the group photo, grand parent and grand kids and then the matriarch and patriarch photo. Unfortunately, the rain kicked in and we had to run off the beach. We did try to wait it out but the rain just kept building in and didn’t stop till the sun was down.

It would be great if we could stay out when it rained. The only problem is that the equipment gets wet (and ruined) and it often gets dark from cloud cover when it is raining. The water spots show up on everyone’s clothes and hair gets unmanageable and can look greasy or wet in the photos. The family’s house was not waterfront and it was quite small inside so we took the photos on the deck of the club house that was by the beach access. It was very important to get family photos and we had fun doing it. The rain couldn’t keep this family or photographer down!

Whalehead Club Family Portraits Chili and Nancy

We had a wonderful time with the Johnson-Ishmael family during their Outer Banks family portrait session. The family was visiting the Monteray Shores area of beautiful Corolla,NC in June . The family traveled all the way from Kentucky to celebrate Chili and Nancy’s amazing 50th Anniversary. They had done family portraits on the beach before and wanted to do something a little bit different. Since they were staying in Corolla we chose Whalehead Park. The area has so many opportunities for portraits including getting the lighthouse in the images as well as the Whalehead Club. This is one of my favorite places to shoot.
Instead of dressing everyone alike they chose colors that coordinated well together. We were able to get portraits of each family at the different locations as well as group photos at each location. Having many group photos in each area was very important to them. They also made sure to have some fun with their images. They made their own family shirts and made sure to pose funny for each group shot.

60th Anniversary Family Portraits Outer Banks Photographer

I had the honor to photograph a couple that had been married for 60 years. I asked them the number one secret to their long marriage (I make sure to ask anyone who has been together over 25 years). They said “Communication” I totally agree! This is certainly one of the key elements to a long and happy marriage!  Congratulations!
