I’m going to apologize to these 5 kids right off the bat. Why you might ask? Because I made them get up for a 7am beach portrait session……on vacation! Yes, I know…bad me. They were all troopers, and willingly headed out to the beach for their pictures. Their session was a gift for grandma, since we all know how rare it is to have all the grandkids in one place at the same time. Usually morning sessions tend to be a bit more “subdued” as people have just woken up – not this one. We had a case of the attack bee. All the parents insisted it was a just a bug, but I’m not so sure. It buzzed around us for most of the pictures near the water. Finally it flew away and we were able to finish our session. They were a great group of kids, and I’m glad I was able to fit them in during their vacation. They stayed down in Avon, NC and had some great scenery for their pictures. Hatteras Island is known for it’s beautiful beaches, and with much fewer cottages built right up on the ocean, you’ll be able to see why.
