The R Family | Wrightsville Beach Family Photographer


Coastal North Carolina has some very beautiful beaches. The one on the south end tip of Wrightsville Beach is one of my favorite spots for photo sessions! With gorgeous views all around and beautiful dunes, it makes a great beach backdrop for outdoor sessions.

On a visit from California, this gorgeous family wanted to end their vacation with some family photos. We were lucky to have the weather cooperate with us. It had been storming for a few days before this session and it continued to storm for a few days after as well! We found a sweet pocket of sunshine and took full advantage. Although it was a very windy afternoon, these sweet twin boys were ready to frolic in the sand and enjoy the ocean breezes.

My family sessions with toddlers are 90% me simply following the kiddies around as they explore. I constantly move around them and patiently wait until I see a sweet moment developing and then I shoot at high-speed right through it. Doing this allows me to capture some beautiful images that really show a toddler’s curiosity and lets their personality shine through. One of my favorites from this session is the one below of little Michael holding his mother’s hand as he feels the cool ocean water rush over his legs. It brings to mind one of my favorite quotes about childhood.

“While we try to teach our children all about life, our children teach us what life is all about.”
