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.

Nags Head Woods Family Portraits Outer Banks Photography

This family has a special place in our hearts. We were able to be a part of their amazing wedding day and their family portraits! We had a family photo session scheduled for Mother’s Day weekend but the beach was too windy and moist for pictures. They were so excited about the session and decided to do the session with a location change instead of rescheduling. We were able to go to the park on Barnes St. in Nags Head. We decided to hit the Nags Head Woods trail. We were wind shadowed there and were able to get some wonderful family portraits. They made sure to bring some props to play with to capture some more candid, fun and natural images. Our session ended with a bit of rain before we could make it to the play ground. Thankfully I brought an umbrella. That allowed us to get a couple extra shots in before we left the park. We will always do our best to work with your family and find an alternative location if the weather does not cooperate.

Elizabethan Gardens Family Portraits Manteo,NC Photographers

We had the pleasure of working with the Griffiths family. Jessica and her wonderful husband were married by Jay Bowman at the Elizabethan Gardens in Manteo, NC on Roanoke Island. They decided to come back to the Elizabethan Gardens for a 10 year wedding anniversary photo shoot with the new additions to their family. These beautiful girls were so sweet and wonderful to work with. Their outfits were just so adorable. The Elizabethan Gardens are a wonderful place for your family photos if you have already done beach photos and would like to do something different or if you are looking for a beautiful garden look. There are so many wonderful spots in the gardens. Before you make your reservation you need to know that the Elizabethan Gardens charges a fee and you must make a reservation with the Elizabethan Gardens for the session before you can book with us. Also, know that the photographer you use has to be on the Gardens approved vendor list.

 

 

The Sharp Family- Outer Banks Photographers

We had a gorgeous day for a family beach portrait session in Corolla, NC. We had a wonderful day in May for our session. It was sunny, warm and just a little windy. The ocean was beautiful that day. We were able to get a lot of reflection shots in the sand at the waters edge.

Here are some pictures of our Outer Banks beach portrait session.
