Emerald Isle NC has beautiful family friendly beaches and I always enjoy the opportunity to shoot weddings and family portrait sessions there. For the James family portrait session, we started the session one hour before sunset. When I’m shooting a portrait session at the beach, it’s very important to do the session when the lighting will be optimal. Lighting can be extremely harsh at the beach if the session takes place at any other time other than near sunrise or near sunset. The sand and the water act like huge reflectors that can give everyone squinty eyes if the time of day isn’t taken into consideration. I typically advise sunset sessions to start one hour before sunset and for sunrise sessions to begin about 15 minutes before sunrise. Sunrise sessions are a great option for early birds or for families with very young children.  To view a sunrise session, please click here.  For more information about portrait sessions please click here.


This is one of my favorites from their session. #SisterlyLove


The tutus are super cute! I love it when clients have props in mind that they want to use in their session, it adds a custom touch to their photos.


Touching the sky!


I really love this one, I can see this photo being used in a slide show of old images, when their daughter grows up and gets married. #DaddyDaughterDance


Tuckered out. Beautiful sunset light.
