Beach Fun x2 | Carolina Beach Family Photographer

I had the pleasure of meeting two beautiful families at the beach yesterday for a session while they were on vacation in Carolina Beach. Meeting families from all over is one of the great perks of living in a tourist spot. They requested a joint family session - and although I said yes - I was a bit hesitant. Well, I shouldn't have!!! I actually think having two families there made it a bit easier at times. The girls were so busy playing with each other - I'm not sure they ever felt like they were at a portrait session!

Meet Ava - she has the most beautiful big brown eyes - that you can just sink into.

I can't tell what I like most about this portrait - Ava's sweet smile or the way daddy is looking at her. Sigh.

And then there came Caroline and Charlotte - oh my sweetness! I could eat them up. Caroline was very much aware of the camera - and didn't hesitate to stop and pose anytime she got a chance. Charlotte, a typical pensive 2-yr old, was a bit harder to crack. But the image on the right - I smiled so big when I was uploading my pictures today - here she is running from daddy!
My favorite part of family sessions is capturing families playing.
And if you haven't seen enough sweetness for 1 blog post - I couldn't resist sharing this one. I see this as a big canvas!!
You guys were so awesome to work with - I'm so happy I had the opportunity to share in your vacation memories.
