Postle Family in Nags Head, NC

non traditional beach portraits, fun beach portraits

We had originally planned our beach portraits in Nags Head for 7pm but considering the kiddos schedules we all decided 7am was the way to go.  All the kids were in great moods and we had the most gorgeous morning light coming up over the ocean!  They also had a beautiful stairwell and walkway surrounded with beach grass which made for a perfect backdrop!

There were 9 family members, so I photographed several groupings of them all together, the grandparents with the grandbabies, all the cousins, each family, the parents from each family and the kiddos from each family. We did some slightly more posed in the dunes with the dunes and water in their background as well as lots of them running and playing in the water.  We try to capture not only what each person looks like but their relationship to one another and their personalities.  The water was a bit cool but it didn't seem to bother the kiddos too much!

We love blues and pastels when we're shooting on the beach, the yellow sand and green grass are perfect compliments to the soft purples, blues, yellows or greens.
