HISTORIC DOWNTOWN WILMINGTON FAMILY PICTURES | THE O FAMILY

 The outdoors will always take the cake for family photos. You just can’t beat the lighting and the scenery. Sometimes though, I like to move out of nature and into the city to bring a certain urban fun to the session. These historic Downtown Wilmington family pictures took us straight into the heart of Wilmington with the O family.

COMPLIMENTS OF DOWNTOWN WILMINGTON

It’s no secret when looking at this session that this family’s little girl stole the spotlight. Head to toe, she was absolutely adorable. Her frilly dress matched her spunky personality perfectly and it was impossible not to smile when she did! The colors in this family’s attire were an amazing pop of color over the neutral walkways and dark foliage that Downtown Wilmington had to offer. 

The brick walkways were a perfect place to start this session. Wilmington is full of beautiful locations to shoot. There is no shortage of fun backdrops, interesting looking buildings, and gorgeous pathways. Downtown Wilmington is unique in the scenery it offers. Oftentimes, the challenge is actually finding the perfect spot; one where the background won’t outshine my lovely subjects. Luckily the personality in this family was bright and bubbly and they had no problem drawing the focus to their wonderful smiles. Truly, you can see the love and excitement pouring out of these parents watching their adorable little girl run and play.

THE FUN OF CANDID FAMILY PICTURES

Photographing children always brings a certain spunk to the session. Especially when the child has a personality like this! Watching her parents light up and loosen up as she bounced and giggled made for some of the most wonderful candid moments. I was so happy to be a part of this lovely afternoon in Downtown Wilmington creating memories with this family.

These historic Downtown Wilmington family pictures were the perfect mix of urbanity and fun. The scenic city can often be overlooked as a great setting for family sessions, but when you add in some loving smiles (and a keen eye from your photographer), it can be the perfect backdrop to capture the most special family moments.
