I'm a published wedding and portrait photographer located in a small town outside of Charlottesville. In addition to capturing beautiful images, I love spending time with my family, am freakishly good at word games (Hey Wheelmobile!), love an ice cold can of Coke or Dr. Pepper, know every line to Hocus Pocus and can never pass up a Chick-fil-A waffle fry or a trip to HomeGoods.
Every year, my husband’s extended family heads to the Outer Banks for a week-long beach vacation. There’s about two dozen of us piled up into one house, ranging in age from just a few months to late-60’s, so things can get fairly interesting at times, but we all love our week-long trip and look forward to it every year. Personally, I love having a solid week of photo opportunities, from birthdays to beach time and water shots to beach fun. Here’s a very small sampling of the 2013 beach trip.
