Family Beach Portraits l Outer Banks Family Beach Portrait Photographer

We’ve been blessed with some beautiful (but windy!) weather lately here on the OBX. When this wonderful family first e-mailed me about coming down and needing portraits I just knew it would be a great session. Sherry and her family were the sweetest, most easy going group! It’s pretty common to have multiple generations vacation together here, and I love meeting all the new families throughout the summer.

We decided on my favorite spot in South Nags Head for their pictures, and I’m SO glad we did. One of the great things about this beach is the abundance of scenery and locations available. This is especially important on days like we had, where it was windy, and not from a good direction! The direction of the wind meant anytime we put the water in the background all the hair went flying. Luckily, my favorite beach didn’t disappoint and we were able to utilize the dunes as our background. After keeping the kids dry long enough, we ventured down to the waters edge at the end of our shoot when the waves (and wind!) didn’t matter anymore.

Thanks so much for a wonderful time!
