I love, love, love that I have had so many opportunities over the past many years to visit and photograph on Bald Head Island. I have done numerous family sessions and a few weddings down there and I was so ecstatic to get a request to do another one. The Manning Family was on their way to Bald Head for a family vacation and they wanted to not only get some family pictures but they were also going to be welcoming a new member to their family in 2016 so to add to the celebration we were documenting a baby bump!
Kathryn was definitely the star of the show for this session. We bonded quickly over books, blocks and silly faces and wow what a doll she is! I got really close to her at a few points in the session and let her curiosity rule the session as some of my favorites were of her exploring the lens of the camera seeing the blink of the shutter happen. Hey – anything to get the kids to interact right? Finger prints never hurt the end of my camera!
I had an absolute blast with this precious family on our adventures around the island. I loved that they had a boardwalk to the beach that was perfect for some family and shots of Kathryn and she even wore a beautiful patchwork dress that was also worn by mom Emily when she was Kathryn’s ago.
So.much.fun and so many precious memories of this families trip to bald head and as they anticipate the arrival of baby #2.
Thank you for having me out Manning family!
