This Wrightsville Beach session was exactly what I needed. Let me tell you, I was only 8 or 9 weeks pregnant with my second child at the time, and my morning sickness was really kicking my butt. I felt so sick, couldn’t eat or drink, and was generally miserable! This session almost got cancelled. I really didn’t think I could get through it. My husband encouraged me and reminded me that some fresh beach air and change of scenery (I had been in the bathroom most of the day) would do me good. He was so right. My clients are always so amazing, too! Running around on the beach with them and putting my nausea on the back-burner really helped me forget I was so nauseous for an hour!
We met up at the south end of Wrightsville Beach. Mid-November is pretty chilly, but a little bit of sun is all we need. What a fun winter season it was! I’m going to have so much fun sharing all the seasonal goodness. This session, in particular, turned out so dang cute! Plus, you know it’s going to be a great session when a family’s toddler shows up dressed like a little model. I mean, come on.

We kept this family session mostly with that iconic Wrightsville Beach sand and grasses as a subtle point of focus. Lots of pretty light, along with the cutest little boy, assisted me with this session! How perfect is that wintry beach scenery and how cute is this little guy?! Obsessed.
Lucky for us, Wrightsville Beach isn’t crowded during the winter months. We had lots of space to work with when deciding on the scene for this family session.
I love seeing layering from my families, and this color scheme was classic. The result was sweet, wintery family session perfection!
Off-season beach photo sessions are a wonderful way to capture beautiful winter memories! Contact me today to set up your next session!
