I recently did an Abbey Nature Preserve family photo session in Wilmington NC. Much like most of my family sessions I spent about an hour chasing kids with my camera. Only this time the kids had longer legs and could outrun me–BIG TIME. These trails are such a great natural backdrop for family sessions because of the beautiful light filtering through the trees, the pond half way through the trail loop and the quaint little bridge that goes over it. Plus, the trails are right next to Poplar Grove Plantation which would make for a great family day outdoors. So in between catching my breath and checking my camera settings, I managed to get some beautiful shots of this family!
