DC Family Vacation on OBX


We had a great time with this family from DC on their Outer Banks family vacation!  These two boys are mega smart!  When I walked up and introduced myself, Tyler, who turned three the day before, asked if my name was Kansas like the state!

Campbelle is five, and kind of a national celebrity!  He raised enough food, all on his own, to feed 800 families in the Alexandria/DC area!  He started his own fundraiser called, Campbelle’s More Than Soup Food Drive.

Fun Duck Family Portraits | Ciarrocchi Family

Annual Outer Banks Vacation


This family was such a hoot to photograph!  They are from all over, really.  But make it to the OBX every summer to spend a week relaxing with family.

The littlest guy, Gabe, was such a trooper!  Sometimes the littles melt down and they’re done, but Gabe was up for anything.  Even wiped away tears and kept right on.  Everyone liked to swing him, toss him, or even put him on the beach blanket and pop him up!

Thanks so much for playing with me last night!  Hope you have a great rest of your trip!

Sanderling Wedding | All the Gorgeous Details!

Katie and Zach’s August Destination Wedding


Katie and Zach had a gorgeous wedding at the Sanderling Resort in August.  We love that we get to work with such rock star venders on the Outer Banks!  Everything was absolutely stunning, and we want to share more photos of the details that everyone put so much effort into dreaming up.

Katie and Zach had their ceremony on the Event Lawn on the southern end of the Resort property.  Rev. jay Bowman officiated and had everyone in tears and giggles!




It was a mild temperature day on the OBX for late August, but it was sunny. The Sanderling had a refresher station set up for after the ceremony, where guests could grab a cold drink before heading to the cocktail hour.



The soundside Pavilion was completely transformed into a vision Katie and Dorothy, of The Flower Field ,had worked on for almost a year!  Stunning exotic flowers from Australia and South Africa, and succulents made up the bouquets and table tops.  Centerpieces included mixed metals of copper, gold, and bronze, with hundreds of candles and mirrors to reflect the ceiling made completely of twinkle lights and fabric!  There was uplighting around the room (which we always LOVE), and DJ George added his own funky lights to keep the dancing fun!



Great Cakes had the reception smelling like confection heaven! A cake, plus cupcakes made of all of Marsha’s famous flavors had everyone’s sweet tooth satisfied!



The Sanderling Resort kept everyone happy with lots of buffets! There was a veggie buffet with salads and roasted veggies, a buffet with meats and pasta dishes, and a crowd favorite, a bacon bar!

Duck, NC Family Portraits | Cousins

Family get away on the Outer Banks, NC


This family gets away to the Outer Banks every summer, but had an unsuccessful go at taking their own family portraits on a self timer last year.  This year they had me over, and I was able to get their portraits and have mega fun playtime with them!  They have the most well behaved group of children of all ages!
