Not all family beach portraits in Corolla, Duck and the entire Outer Banks are at the beach!
Many times not all members of your large family group vacationing with you are “beach people”, and a family portrait on the be would not represent your family at it’s best.
Or perhaps some members of your family are not psychically able to be on the beach and this is the first time their entire family has been together in years, and a group portrait of the whole family is what they really, really want.
Maybe the weather is not cooperating, and they cannot reschedule because of logistics.
When you hire me, this is never a problem, over the years I’ve photographed thousands of families of all sizes, with many special needs, and in many different locations, both indoors and out……..I know how to pivot when need be.
Patience and planning are always a requirement when working with larger groups, especially on the beach! Do your homework when choosing a beach portrait photographer. Call him or her. Ask questions! Get a feel of their attitude and professionalism. The clients I serve are generally in the Corolla, Duck, Souther Shores, Kitty Hawk, Kill Devil Hills, Inlet Beach, and Nags Head areas, which means I serve a lot of out-of-towners. Your time is precious, so don’t just hire any beach photographer for your portrait session! Make sure that they know how to work with groups, are not mainly wedding photographers, and know how to pivot! Contact me anytime for availability or other information. I’m always happy to help!
