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.

 

 

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.

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,
