I had the best time photographing this funfabulous family on the beach and underwater in Corolla, NC.  Their mom, Samantha, is so creative! She brought so many fun props including pirate swords, shields, a surfboard and the cutest outfits for the kiddos!  I love how Noah was duck diving in the pool, talented little fella!

The next morning they were going to the Pirate Ship in Manteo so the foam swords got them super excited for their adventure!

Cheryl, the owner of the adorable Roanoke Bungalows, invited me over to photograph her son, Cameron and his beautimus wifey and their brand new beebster.  Everything was so elegant, soft and beautiful!  The setting couldn’t have had more gorgeous light, flowers or greenery, not to mention the prettiest family you could ask for!

Sweet Fiona wore little ruffle bottoms and a big pink bow which made my heart smile.  She had a head full of beautiful brown hair which stuck straight up once the bow came off, adorable!

Family Beach Portraits | Kitty Hawk

Beach portraits while on OBX vacation

I met this family from Maryland this week at their beach home in Southern Shores for family beach portraits.  This was little Victoria’s first trip to the beach and she was unsure about the sand.  We see this a lot.  Kids are just starting to get around on their own and then get on the unsure footing of the sand …and do not like it one bit!  It’s kind of like putting a cat into a bath tub!

We suggest getting them a little used to it before our scheduled session.  But, like I said -we’re used to it, so we found Victoria a little beach access that she felt comfortable on to climb and play for a few portraits alone.

It has been a few years since I got to play with the Ragan family.  Our last shoot was on the beach in Nags Head and this year we came to the Whalehead Club, the kiddos have grown up so much!!  We did lots of family groupings with the Whalehead Club and the Lighthouse as our background but here are some of my favorite fun photos. I like to try to capture the kids being kids in between our groupings and these kiddos had fun all afternoon, running, looking at crabs, they saw a snake… And of course we played with bubbles!

The beach in Kill Devil Hills, NC last night was absolutely gorgeous, a slight breeze, and beautiful puffy clouds!  We couldn’t have asked for more for our family beach portraits!  The kids ages ranged from 5-17 and they were all so easy going, cooperative and super fun! They didn’t even mind getting in the ocean at the very end!   We always start with the more posed family groupings at the very beginning to make sure everyone is clean and happy and as the evening goes on we move into more running, fun, playful photos capturing everyone’s personality.  We want to make sure you have plenty to choose from!!

The red went great with the dune grass and then when we went to the beach the plaid shirt really made everyone’s blues pop.

I was so impressed with these teenagers, they were up for whatever!! I know I was not nearly as sweet and respectful at age 14!  They are absolutely beautiful kids inside and out, I can only hope Poppy and Peaches are half as respectful!!
