When I travel with my family I go back and forth from wanting to take zero pictures or wanting to be a documentary travel photographer. On this trip I did the second and love the images I got telling the full story of our entire trip. It would be such a dream for me to be able to travel along with clients and do this for them. You would have lifestyle storytelling images with both parents in all of them. No one stuck behind the camera. You would be free to really embrace the new discovery and situations with your children. All while I captured those moments for your memories and prints on your walls. Imagine gorgeous sunsets photographs documenting amazing places and you are in the image. Art worthy prints that include you to decorate your home with. These images from our trip to the Outer Banks of North Carolina are just that for me.
My favorite thing about the Outer Banks was the sky and the dunes. I just loved the negative space in this first place we explored. The wind is legit up there and flying a kite just has such childhood nostalgia. One of those timeless childhood activities that will never go out of style.
Lighthouse exploration was another fun adventure. Unfortunately our spring break fell a week before the lighthouses open for climbing to the top. We were sad to miss that experience, but these beautiful structures provided a picturesque place to run our legs out and have some fun. My favorite part of traveling with my children is how they force me to slow down and spend some time playing at each location. It is a much needed break!
The Wright brothers museum and grounds was another amazing place to just play. Their life size replica plane turned jungle gym occupied the kiddos for a couple hours. Fields of wildflowers and a huge hill up to the memorial made for a very memorable afternoon. My girly girl LOVES all the flowers, but my favorite part about her picking them is she is always convinced they will grow more once we get them home and put them in water. No matter how much I tell her, “once you pick them they are dead” she just doesn’t believe it.
Other fun things we did out on the Islands was some classic putt putt, ghost crab hunting, swinging, and dance parties on the beach. This was such a fun trip. Late nights with friends playing games, lip sync battles and yummy food topped it all off. Are you going on any adventures soon? Want a photographer to document it all for you? Contact to me today!
