Celebrating Family and Friends | Topsail Beach Family Photography

What happens when you put together 5 kids (4 of which are under 18months old) and 10 adults? Lots of pictures and loads of fun. A group of friends got together for a week of vacation - gathered all their children together for the first time - and just really enjoyed themselves. I did a mini-sessions for each family - and got to capture their celebration.

This little girl was on the move the whole time. As long as she was allowed to roam - she was happy, happy, happy!

This little boy was the most mellow little one. The water pouring image was right after he did a face plant in the sand - they dumped water on him - and he never skipped a beat! His big sister was quite the ham!
He was so happy to see this dog walking on the beach! Smiles galore! I love the one of mom and dad swinging him!
This little man has been struggling to sleep on this vacation - but you wouldn't know it from these smiles!
And let me just say - the adults def. knew how to have a good time. They let me glimpse just a little of it!
Thanks so much for the opportunity to capture your families and friendships. It was awesome. I can't wait to go through the rest of the pictures. You guys were great! Have fun on the rest of your trip!

Dana - these are wonderful! If my friends and family are ever in the area, you'll be the first person I call!

I love all of them. You are by far the best beach photographer I have ever seen. You really have a knack for capturing the true essence of a family.

Oh, and by the way, the Flip Cup one is priceless! :)
