The first words I said when I met Ryley were, "Oh my goodness - you look like an angel!" With just a hint of pale shimmery eyeshadow above her bright blue eyes, her beautiful auburn hair, and a white flowing dress, that was the first thought I had. We were friends from there on out!
This was another one of those magical evenings on the beach when the light and sky were just right. After a week of rain, I'm so glad this family got a sunny day and beautiful evening photo session, with the full moon rising over the ocean. Can you believe this beautiful setting? I just love the Outer Banks and summer.
This is Fran's family, her husband, their two sons, and their families. Ryley has a younger brother, Conner, with equally beautiful auburn hair, just like their mom. Their cousins are Jackson, who is four and did a really great job taking photos, looking at the camera when I asked him to, and running and playing in between. His younger brother is Grayson, who just turned 1. It was such a lovely evening in Corolla - thank you!
