The F. family reached out before their Wrightsville Beach vacation because the last time they had a family portrait session, their kids were toddlers. Now, they're all teenagers! I have to say, it was a nice change of pace! I tend to photograph lots of young children, which requires a great deal of energy, but these three teens made it so easy. They also ordered gorgeous prints from their session, so I'm glad they'll be able to remember their beach vacation (and their family at this stage of life) for years to come!
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.
