It's good to be a dog....

Summer is zipping by at full speed, and we just finished a week of beautiful beach weather!  The smoke from the forest fire is still blowing, but it didn't affect our evening sessions thank goodness.

Here were two images from a session last week that made me smile.  I loved this dog, she was so well behaved and resisted the urge to bolt to the ocean during the session.  Probably helped that her dad had an entire bag of treats in his pocket ;)  She's one lucky pup, and clearly enjoyed her beach vacation....

Carolina Summer {Emerald Isle Family Photographer}

Well friends, summer is here!  Bring on the sandy toes, the sunscreen and bug spray.  

We've had beautiful weather this week and last night I enjoyed photographing these sweet siblings.  I'm not quite sure how their mother kept this little guy from getting sunburned this week, but whatever she did worked perfect :)

Enjoy some of my favorites from their lovely family...

The "C" Family {Swansboro, NC}

 One of the things I love best about my role as a photographer is getting a glimpse into other family's lives.  However, the camera doesn't lie, and it's often too easy to see tension or frustration through the lense.  It then becomes my job to smooth out that tension and create images of the way we "want" our families to be...the way we are when we are all having a good day and the world seems bright.

The "C" Family needed absolutely no coaxing on my part.  They are what you see here, a truly cohesive unit with two beautiful boys.  They are one of those families that when you are done photographing, you think "wow, they've got it all figured out."  These two little ones have been blessed to have such stellar and very selfless parents.

So enjoy these little highlights of a picture perfect family :)

K's First Communion Session {Emerald Isle, NC}

This is the time of year for First Communion portraits, and they really are such a treat.  K's mother requested her portraits be done in the wildflowers right before the Emerald Isle bridge, and the colors were perfect!

Little Mover and Shaker {Pine Knoll Shores Family Portraits}

This little gal is certainly busy.  At two and a half months she's taking the world by storm.  Full of fun expressions, she was a joy to photograph, and by the end of the session fell sound asleep. I'm hoping she slept all the way home to Raleigh, because no doubt she's not a huge fan of the confines of the car seat ;)  Her family has many fun beach days ahead of them this summer, she'll be surfing soon!

Isn't this just the cutest laugh ever?
