Hello all!!! My apologies for missing this past Friday's Favorite. I was skiing up in the Mountains of WV! But hey camera man, I thought it was in the 60's this week... ... ... Well, it was. And that was some AMAZING skiing! I've never done it in just a sweatshirt before. It was pretty exhilarating!
Today's favorite is brought to you by the myth that everyone needs to be wearing the same thing. I often get asked if I recommend the whole family wear the same color or style of clothing for their OBX Family Portrait. Do I think they should dress up... The answer I love to give is, "Only if that is the personality of your family." I always say that I want to bring out the personalities of each individual and take a quintessential photograph of them. With that being said, do I frown upon the idea of wearing all the same thing? Absolutely not. However, I would urge you to give broad guidelines when asking people to bring clothing to the shoot. Like "This year is Navy Blue." and let them figure out what they want to wear.
Lastly, I would just add that the only things I would stay away from, would be... logos and words on shirts during anything other than your individual photos, and well... ... shoes of any kinds on the beach. Everything else is great!
When I was growing up, my family would take vacations to the Outer Banks of North Carolina. I remember body surfing in the waves, fishing off the piers, and building sand castles. As my life has unfolded, I have found myself lucky enough to live on the OBX with my wife, Amy, raising our young son in the sand.
When you book your OBX vacation, it’s one of the few times during the year when your whole family gets together. Of course, you want to get some memorable shots with your family on the beach! My fun and energetic style will bring smiles to the faces of both adults and children. Even Uncle Bob who hates having his picture taken will be enjoying himself!
I have been photographing since 2001, and there are few backdrops as beautiful as our Outer Banks beaches. Whether you’ve booked one of the huge houses in Corolla, or have nestled in the quiet corners of Rodanthe, or are enjoying views of the Hatteras Lighthouse, I’d love to talk with you about photographing your family. Call, text, or email to get to know me a little better. Until then, peruse the galleries, and start dreaming about your OBX family vacation!
I love Outer Banks Family Photography, and I love being an Outer Banks Family Photographer. Come book a session and see how much I love your family as well.
