Outer Banks Family Portraits Smith-Gerlach

Kelly & Dusty were married at the Sanderling in 2014. We were blessed to be a part of their big day and meet and work with their family and friends. We have been working with them since their wedding with family portraits. We were so excited when baby Kendall arrived and couldn’t wait to meet her and work with her family again!

Why we are the different than other photographers:

  • Well first of all, we have no sitting fees! Besides our 14 years of experience of shooting almost 800 family portrait sessions, the biggest advantage of choosing Outer Banks Production is that we give you a professional experience with just one price and that’s it. We hate sitting fees and all the hidden additional charges that many other photographers charge. Do understand that with all these pricing models, it’s also very hard to compare your total cost so take your time and try to figure it all out!
  • We listen well and we always look forward to all of your special shot requests.
  • We are very pet and prop friendly! (We love pets & props!)
  • We offer the best image editing on the OBX, using color corrected monitors and finely tuned custom filters!
  • We always offer candid shots as a bonus as long as time allows.
  • No other photography company knows the OBX local weather like we do. Being experienced pilots, our short term weather prediction strategies yields us a 99.99% success rate with every session each year. (That’s really true and really good!)

Outer Banks Family Portraits at the Whalehead Club and Corolla Lighthouse Corolla, NC

We don’t always do family portraits on the beach. Sometimes the wind doesn’t cooperate and we are able to move our portrait session to a different location with a little less wind. When we shoot family portraits in Corolla our back up is at The Whalehead Club in the park area. We worked with this lovely family and were able to get some great shots.

 

Outer Banks Productions Captures OBX Johnson Family Beach Portraits

I had the pleasure of photographing a great family this summer on the Outer Banks, NC in Nags Head. We had so much fun! First we started out with some photos at Coquina Beach and then we moved over to the Bodie Island Lighthouse for an additional photo shoot. The photo session was a birthday gift for Mom. She had a blast!

Here is a letter that I received from the family:

Michelle,

We just got our photo disk in the mail and I wanted to drop you a note to thank you so much for doing such an excellent job with our portraits!  They are absolutely beautiful!!  Having you as our photographer was such a fun experience!

Thanks so much again for everything!

Have a great day!
Don and Tammy Johnson

Family Portraits

When we shoot your family portraits we like to capture relationships and special moments. We will get as many group pictures that you would like during the photo session. We try to do the portraits either very early in the morning or close to sunset in the evening. The beach is clear of people at this time and the sun is not too bright.
If time permits we will shoot some images in the dune line with the sea oats and sand dunes behind you and then move in front of the ocean to get some great beach shots. After the group shots are done I love to get some candid shots of the different families and the children walking on down the beach holding hands or playing in the sand.
Don’t be afraid to bring props to your family portrait session (funny glasses, cigars, parasols & boas, etc…). Silly pictures can be so fun!

Don’t forget about the kids! You can bring a bucket and shovel or a favorite toy to keep them occupied between shoots or to use during the shoot. For kids that don’t like the sand bring a blanket to sit on. Don’t forget to bring bottled water, snacks or a bottle for the little ones too. Sometimes a nice treat for good behavior can go a long way.
You might want to make sure everyone is wearing sunblock too. It can get very hot out on the beach in the summer.

The most important part to family portraits? Don’t forget your smile 🙂
