Spring has sprung and we are SO HAPPY it has! It brings with it warmer temps and family portrait time! We had a blast with the Cartwright Family for their family portrait session at Coquina Beach, Nags Head. Lots of laughter, smiles, and tons of silliness = all ingredients for a great session!

Shanti + Cami Welcoming Baby Sister Soon! / Family + Maternity Session

Jamie + Tatum, Cumberland Virginia, Engagements on the Farm

Jamie + Tatum, Cumberland Virginia, Engagements on the Farm
While Jamie + Tatum are getting married on the Outer Banks, they wanted to have their engagement session at their family farm in Cumberland, Virginia. And I'm so glad that they did! Albeit I am insanely jealous that I did not get to go to the session, I'm really excited to share these photographs that Daniel made of Jamie, Tatum, and Lennox. To me, this session exemplifies what we strive to create in every portrait session - beautiful, bold, dynamic portraits and authentic moments. Lennox is a real big help with that! Jamie + Tatum, we are incredibly honored to be able to document your journey together. It's been such a great adventure, and we are really stoked for what is to come! -- Kate

Derek + Denna, Cape Hatteras Engagement Session

Derek + Denna, Cape Hatteras Engagement Session
Even though they'll be getting married in Virginia later this year, Derek + Deena wanted to have their engagement session on Hatteras Island because it's their favorite place to visit together- and an engagement session was a great "excuse" to make a trip down! We were blessed with warm temperatures and great lighting on this February morning, and believe me - we were really thankful for it! Derek + Deena we are so excited for you both, and can't wait to document your wedding this Spring!

Justin + Micah, Winter Engagement Session, The Nature Conservancy

Justin + Micah, Winter Engagement Session, The Nature Conservancy
The weather for Justin and Micah's January engagement session was a bit on the chilly side to say the least. We had hoped to shoot at the beach, but it just wasn't going to work with the wind and cold. So we changed gears and went to The Nature Conservancy's Nags Head Woods. We were so glad that we did - back in the woods protected from the wind, in position with really beautiful light, and with Micah bundled with a bright red blanket, the photographs were exactly what we were hoping to capture for them! So excited for you both, Justin + Micah, and we can't wait until your wedding later this year!

Baby William

Baby William
One of the greatest gifts of our job is to be able to document families as they grow. And when we shot Brandon + Lillie's wedding this past August at Roanoke Island Festival Park in Manteo, we knew it wouldn't be long before we'd be able to photograph the next phase of their lives... welcoming Baby William! We're so excited for you, Brandon + Lillie, and welcome to the world little William!!

Lynn Family, Summer Beach Session

Lynn Family, Summer Beach Session
We were really fortunate to photograph The Lynn's vow renewal session a few year's back in Frisco, on Hatteras Island. The Lynn's are a photographer's ideal client: fun, colorful (literally and figuratively,) easy to work with, and genuinely just happy. Tara, is a portrait and wedding photographer, and we are always honored to get to photograph other photographers! (If you're in Pennsylvania and are in need of a photographer make sure to check out her work at SilverOrchid Studio!) So, this year we were excited when Tara called us to photograph a family portrait session during their vacation to Corolla. Tara's sister and family joined in the session, and all I can truly say is, "I think that it would have been impossible to have more fun at this session!" Everyone was relaxed and the mindset coming into the session was, "This is going to be fun." (This could be also because both children and adult beverages were brought out to the beach -- a great suggestion for all families!) We really strive to have fun, engaging, and relaxed portrait sessions. I mean, if our clients wanted "sit down, put your head here, look, smile, done" portraits, they'd look elsewhere. The photo session in itself should be a time when really great memories are made. I wanted to feature the Lynn Family Session because it exemplifies what we hope to accomplish in a session. Secondly, I needed this blog post so that I can have a place to refer clients when they ask, "What do we wear for a portrait session." While I have a handout that I send with detailed information, my new short answer is: Take a look at the Lynn Family Session! They nailed it with the colors and outfits! You can see that everyone is super happy, dressed to their comfort and style, and it is bright, cheerful, and works together without being too matchy.

Winter Session with the O'neal Family

Winter Session with the O'neal Family
Perfect weather in the Winter is hard to come by, but we were grateful for it on the day of our shoot with Warren, Candace, and Mason. I won't write much, because the photos say everything - this session was filled with fun, smiles, and good times! This is another one for "how to dress for your session" - Candace did an amazing job picking out each outfit to complement each other.
