The Holmes Family | Beach Portraits | Family Portraits| Shell Island Resort | Wrightsville Beach, NC
The Holmes Family decided to do a little beach get-away from their home in the city and rented an AirBnB condo at Shell Island Resort, located at the very North end of Wrightsville Beach. Sarah and Tom loved it so much I think they told me they extended their stay! What a compliment to our tiny but beautiful beach town. I so enjoyed this sunset beach session with them. Their 2-year old daughter was a delight to capture along with her little sister inside her mom's belly! I told Sarah she must get some maternity photos because she was looking like a model in her flowy white dress, sun-kissed skin and long luscious locks. Tom kept things so fun by constantly playing with his daughter which made for some sweet candids. What a gorgeous family. Thank you three for sharing this perfect summer evening with me!
After becoming a mom, I feel like it’s a thing that mamas rarely get their photo taken with their children so this was the sweetest Mother’s Day gift for Lynn and her three beautiful kids ♥️ Thank y’all for getting up at the crack of dawn for this fun sunrise beach session in Wrightsville Beach, NC!
Well let me preface this whole blog post with one thing first: This sweet and beautiful family fed me homemade rice crispy treats right when I walked in the door, so you can imagine how much fun this shoot was for us. They didn't even know I was pregnant and having a major sweet tooth craving so they hit the nail on the head. But no, their amazing baking skills are not why I love the Spruill family, I've actually known them for years. We actually did a family shoot four years ago so it was so wonderful to see how grown up the daughters were and how each of them have blossomed into their own person despite being so close in age. The ages of the sisters ranged from 17 to 14 if I remember correctly. The youngest two are twins!
We did a fun mixture of groupings throughout this evening beach shoot- starting with a flirt session with Mom & Dad, then we did some photos with just the sisters, then each of them had their little moment of fame before going into full-family photos that even had grandma included. All the generations. It was the most stellar rhythm for this family shoot that took place in front of their Nags Head beach cottage. So thankful to know this family and look forward to many more!
Isabella had an amazing thirty-minute senior grad photo session in front of her family's beach house in Old Nags Head, North Carolina. She embraced her confidence with the perfect blend of humility and beauty. I was so impressed with how she moved throughout the shoot with such grace. When I was a senior, I definitely had the socially-awkward concept locked down to a T. Isabella however, is a young woman that knows how to show off some pearly whites! Congratulations you gorgeous thang!
