We love being based in Corolla! The beaches are so beautiful with their built-up dunes.
Most of the beach accesses have longer beaches than other towns in the northern Outer Banks. This feature helps to make high tide less stressful for portraits with larger groups. Our favorite spot to shoot is on Shad Street in Corolla. Outdoor portraiture can be challenging with all the variables that can come to play; wind direction, sun position, high tide/ low tide, and more. We k
Family beach portraits are about capturing your family the way it is right now. Many of us have a member of the family who is considerably more hairy than the rest...and I'm not talking about Uncle Albert! If your family has a dog you might be wondering if you should bring him along for your OBX beach portrait session. The answer in most cases is yes! Audra and I love seeing your whole family on the beach and watching everyone interact. It really helps us genuinely captur
Now that the weather is getting colder, here in the OBX, I find myself reminiscing. There are so many happy memories from this summers’ sessions. Audra and I are just a couple of big kids ourselves. Getting to play and laugh with happy families all summer makes us happy! The running is what keeps us in shape… Memories of happy hugs keep us warm all winter! Remembering when we got stampeded by fast kiddos makes us laugh! This summer was full of hugs, races and some of the fu
I had a great time hanging with these cool kids at the beach access on Shad Street. Shad Street is one of our favorite spots to do family portraits. There are so many factors to consider when photographing people outside. Having a spot we are really familiar with allows us to spend more time photographing each of our families instead of spending all the time trying to figure out logistics. The dunes at Shad Street are a great height to block the sun. The sea oats and other
I loved taking photos of this sweet family of three. Their little boy is so happy all the time! Many of our customers would say that we have baby fever. In fact, over the past three years Audra and I have managed to add three little ones to our beach family! It makes us happy to take photos of families like the “H” family because we know just how in love these parents are with their little guy. We were quite smitten with him too! #obx #outerbanks #corollanc #obxbeachportra
This little lady wouldn't stay still and that was fine by me. I love an independent woman! I had a great session in Corolla with this cutie. She really didn’t want to stay still, and who could blame her when there’s so much to see on the beach?! “My new house is so big and it has a pool!” She thought the house they were renting for their family vacation was her new house! She was really excited about having a pool and the ocean in her backyard. I got some shots as she went
