Another wonderful senior session at the Whalehead Club!

Corolla gave us this storm cloud off in the distance for effect.
Soft shade flattered her as we started
Both bright and sweet, they made a perfect set for sibling portraits
The sea oats were at their best, soft tan to work with her golden hair
Her outfit was an excellent choice with the white clouds and soft blue sky
When the wind and waves work together we get sweet reflections.
I really like this brother and sister shot with the mirrors
She wore the breeze well.
The dune ridge was right for the sun setting behind Cassidy and Connor
The navy dress works well with her tan, and the location finger piers gave her a place to show her length
Connor’s height was easy to compose with the poles to stretch back on.
The shade of the trees let his eyes relax before the sun starts to mellow
Over in the shade her face showcases her natural beauty
Again, looking for the soft front light and sharp backlight found us this, Mom’s favorite of Connor.
So many great options at this location, the bridge with repeating framing elements and her beautiful smile.
Her curls and the light wrapped her in gold.
Before it gives up, the direct light over the sound is warm and flattering
From within the wooden bridge, many gorgeous variations on the light are there for the taking
Without the color you can see more of the shape and essence of the subject, and she is beautiful without color.
Connor’s sweet buddy was very patient with us throughout and deserved a little attention
As the sun kissed the water, Cassidy gazed with longing at the sight, a great reminder of what we have all the time.

Brianna in Corolla

Brianna and her friends met me for an afternoon session starting at the beach and ending at the Whalehead Club for the last bit of sunset over the sound. Jordan and Shannon not only helped, but got into a few portraits on their own. Currituck sound is an under appreciated spot for senior or family portraits, one we love to play on when we get the chance. Like a lot of our seniors, she plays sports and brought her volleyball stuff along and we always have time with a senior package to do a couple outfit changes and locations. She got the most from all of the above for sure!

Brianna, Jordan and Shannon found the perfect setting
Whalehead club, wildlife center,
The wooden bridge makes wonderful pictures for individuals or groups.
We actually used a friends back as a reflector to give her this look.
As we were losing light we saw the boarder screaming by and got positioned to get this shot, hope she loves it!
Subtle clothes let you see her beauty
Brianna is planning on playing in college as well, the reflections double your fun.
At the right time with the right wind, the results are sweet.
The boat basin is a fine contrast to the beach
She gets by with a little help from her friends

The gaslights at the Whalehead Club in the twilight made a nice contrast with the device.

The birds are a nice accent that her Dad will love.

That soft evening light treats her well.

Her natural hair shines in the backlight.

We all have a bit of tree climber in us.

Growing up in a family if red haired ladies you learn that diffuse light flatters them, she is a prime example.
