It’s that time of year again- the beach sessions have begun! I truly enjoyed every moment with this sweet family during our time together! Their little boy went to preschool with my oldest son. One year, six out of the eight moms in the preschool class were expecting babies (including the two of us!). Our daughters were born exactly one month apart and they both just turned two! As you can imagine, a beach session with two little ones is so fun because everything is exciting to them. We checked out the seashells and played in the sand in between shots (and Grandma even joined in!). I’m so glad we get to call this beautiful place home!
I met this little family while they were spending a weekend on Oak Island. Being an Oak Island native myself, I love sharing my hometown with vacationers and learning what led them to choose this area for their getaway. Their adorable little boy was so curious about the sand, water, and boats cruising through the waves. He was quite the serious little guy, but he eventually gave me the sweetest grins at the end of our session. I'm so glad I could capture them during one of their last trips as a family of three because baby number two will arrive in just a few months (seriously, mom had the cutest bump!).
This family is seriously gorgeous! When mom contacted me, she wanted beach maternity photos, as well as some family images. Carolina Beach proved to be an amazing setting for her vision. She chose two stunning dresses, which showcased her growing bump. Her older daughter was also just beautiful and a blast to photograph. Baby girl is due later this month and I can't wait to meet her!
I've had such a great time capturing extended families this summer. Many times, they told me that they all live states apart and only get together a few times a year. This is true for the L. family, who I met on Ocean Isle Beach. They even brought along the great grandmother (who was so proud of her little great granddaughters!). You can just feel the love in these images and I'm so glad I was able to provide updated portraits for this growing family.
I met this family and instantly knew they were a blast! They were vacationing on Oak Island and wanted to capture some memories and new, updated family portraits. You could tell they were so excited to all be at the beach spending time together. The grandparents reminded me very much of my own and their personalities were so bright and sweet. The girls (ages 13, 4, and 6 months) were adorable and so easy to photograph! Here are my favorites of this lovely family!
