There is a favorite spot that I usually take clients who want a beach photo shoot, but it’s always nice to get out and photograph somewhere new. So when I went and did a Corolla beach session down in North Carolina for the Groom family, it was lovely to be able to get a change of scenery! Definitely one of the things I loved most was the tall, green, sea grass that’s so abundant on the dunes down there!
I first met Ali Wells a few years ago, she was Mara’s first teacher at Emmanuel Episcopal Day School (can’t speak highly enough of that place!), and we remained friends even after school ended. I love Ali because she is such a sweet, fun-loving person who genuinely looks for the best in everyone! And after meeting her family, I know exactly where she gets it from 🙂
“We are tied to the ocean, and when we go back to the sea,
whether it is to sail or to watch – we are going back from where we came.”

It was awesome getting to spend time with these lovely people! I found out that coming to this beach house has been a family tradition for many, many years, it it was cool looking at photos that had been taken on past trips (the kiddos were so cute and tiny!).
Ali, thank you so much for having me come and photograph for you and your family! It was so wonderful to be able to not only spend time with you all, but also to capture this moment in your lives so you can treasure it always!
