Photographs of Zack & Tina on Fort Macon’s Beach, Atlantic Beach, NC

Had a great time of making some portraits of Zack and Tina at Fort Macon State Park, Atlantic Beach, North Carolina. We took shots both inside the fort and on the beach. I love this location because of the lack of vacation homes and cottages to clutter up the backgrounds.

Atlantic Beach North Carolina Engagement Photo Session

Amy and Michael are planning a May 16th wedding on the beach at Pine Knoll Shores. They were in town to visit Amy’s mother over Christmas vacation so we took advantage of the opportunity to do an enagement session. It was an extremely foggy morning at the beach but we managed to get some nice shots despite the gloom. Congratulations Amy and Michael. I’ll see you in May!

Let ’em Play! Tricks to Capturing Great Beach Photos of Kids

Filed under Information,Photographs Tags: , , , , , , , , , , — • Written by admin @ 9:44 am

Capturing photos of kids on the beach can be frustrating for both parents and photographers. They’re full of energy and curiosity, seldom having any interest in posing for the camera. Sometimes it’s just a matter of timing. If it’s been a few hours since their last meal, or if they missed their nap, getting them to cooperate can be a challenge. Many times the best course of action is to just let them play and frolic on the beach. This approach frequently nets me some of my favorite images. So the best plan is to get a few safe, posed shots in the bag then let “em play!”
