Outer Banks Professional Photographer

Outer Banks Family Photography

Outer Banks Portrait Photography

We do family portraits, senior portraits, maternity sessions, non-family group sessions, and more. Pets? No problem. We love furry family members!

Formal portrait photography / Fun candid photography

During your family or group session, you can expect there to be a mix of well-posed formals to the fun candid photos that show the laid back, non-posed side of the family, enjoying their time on the Outer Banks! Your formals are the prints that typically hang in your home for all your friends and family to admire, while the fun candid photos are great for social media as well as vacation scrapbooks and photo albums.

Professional beach photographer / Skilled lighting technique

Jason has countless hours under his belt studying and perfecting his lighting techniques for family beach sessions. This, coupled with the proper professional gear, will ensure that your images will have true-to-the-moment colors. You love the Outer Banks sunrises and sunsets, right? So, do we! We take pride in ensuring that your images not only detail your family in the forefront but will also maintain the beautiful colors of the Outer Bank skies in the background. By using this skilled lighting technique, we can pull together breathtaking memories that will be the talk of future family gatherings.


• What do we wear to our family session?

Solid colors are preferred. No stripes or patterns, if possible, but coral/floral colored tops with khaki bottoms really add a beautiful accent to your photos. You also can't go wrong with the traditional white tops and khaki bottoms.

• How long will our session take?

Most sessions take around 35-45 minutes. We have photographed families and non-family groups from 2-68 people in size. The larger families/groups take a little longer. The most important factor is understanding what shots your family/group want to capture. We will make sure that your ideas are incorporated into the session. We often hear how fun and fluid the sessions are. We take pride in making the most effective use of our time with your family/group during your session.

• What is the best time for our family beach session?

We typically do two sessions per evening. One at 6:30pm and one at 7:30pm. The setting sun as your backdrop is what we are shooting for. We bump these times forward as the summer ends. Yes, we also do sunrise sessions!! We highly suggest you ask for a day earlier in your vacation week. This way, we can reschedule in the case of inclement weather. And the kiddos have less sunburn too! :-)
