Mary, John and Carol's daughter, found me on Instagram back in May and asked me to photograph her family at the Rodanthe Pier. They vacation in Rodanthe every year, and Mary's sister-in-law is usually the one to take the family photo. They are a big group of 21, so that's pretty tough for a family member to manage and kudos to her! John and Carol have a beautiful and lively family, with five children including Mary, and nine grandchildren! We had a gorgeous evening for photos at the pier, and I feel lucky to know these beautiful people. I hope to see you again next summer! Mary, thank you for liking and commenting on my photos on Instagram - it means so much to me!
