A Bit of Corolla Info

Although Corolla has gained national attention as one of America’s best-secluded beaches, Corolla still retains its small beach-town charm that attracted Outer Banks visitors in the first place. For vacationing families who want plenty of sand to spread out on, but would like to still enjoy the amenities of a resort beach community, Corolla is an ideal vacation destination.

Our small-town beach community combines all the best elements of a five-star resort vacation, while still encompassing that laid-back Outer Banks style that embraces the best beach life. With minimal development but lots of amenities, Corolla is perfect for those who want to get away from it all, but still enjoy all the best diningshopping, water sports, and amenities that the Outer Banks has to offer.

Corolla is known for its miles of beaches, as well as its array of restaurants, shops, and historic attractions. Corolla is also the home of several popular Outer Banks attractions, including the Currituck Beach Lighthouse, the Whalehead Club, the Outer Banks Center for Wildlife Education, and the Wild Horse Museum.

Corolla is located in the northernmost region of the Outer Banks, just north of the town of Duck, and just south of the 4WD beaches of Carova. It is part of Currituck County and is accessible via North CrolinaHighway 12 North.

Here, on the northern tip of North Carolina’s Outer Banks, you can explore miles of windswept remote beaches, the legendary Corolla wild horses, and many iconic historical sites.

Oh, and one last thing, it’s “Cor-rah-la”, not “Cuh-roll-uh”

In the grand scheme of things, this is probably the least important, but it’s worth noting that the pronunciation is a bit different than what it may look like at face value. It may be spelled the same as the popular Toyota sedan, but locals and frequent visitors know it’s a bit different.

Family and Dog Photography in the Outer Banks of North Carolina

The past few days have been an absolute joy as I’ve had the pleasure of photographing families and their dogs all over the beautiful Outer Banks. From the serene shores of Corolla to the vibrant beaches of Nags Head and the charming coastline of Kill Devil Hills, each location offered a unique and picturesque backdrop for capturing precious memories.

One of the most rewarding aspects of being a photographer in the Outer Banks is the opportunity to preserve these special moments forever. Each family I photographed brought their own unique energy and love, making every session a delightful experience. The children’s laughter, the playful antics of the dogs, and the heartfelt interactions among family members all contributed to creating timeless images that will be cherished for years to come.

In Corolla, the soft sands and gentle waves set the stage for stunning beach portraits. The golden hour light added a magical touch, illuminating the joy and connection among family members. It was particularly touching to capture moments with loved ones who may not be with us much longer. These photographs will serve as a lasting tribute to their presence and the love they shared with their families.

Nags Head offered vibrant sunsets and scenic views, perfect for family portraits. The families I photographed here were full of life and energy, making it easy to capture candid moments of joy and affection. Each session felt like a celebration of family bonds and the simple pleasures of spending time together by the sea.

In Kill Devil Hills, the relaxed coastal atmosphere provided a perfect setting for capturing genuine interactions and heartfelt moments. The families’ enthusiasm and love for one another shone through in every shot, resulting in portraits that beautifully reflect their unique connections.

It’s an honor to be a part of these special moments and to help families preserve the love and joy they share.
