On July 13th, 2016 I met the Anderson family at the Old Lighthouse Beach in Buxton for their family portrait session. They all traveled from Virginia to spend their 2016 family vacation together on Hatteras Island. Grandpa was celebrating his 80th Birthday the evening of our session!
The sun was setting behind the dunes as we started the session. The sea oats are growing in beautifully this season and provided a lovely backdrop at sunset. It was pretty hot and humid that evening, the little bit of breeze that blew through was definitely a plus! As the sun set the skyline over the ocean changed to light blue and pink.
Prior to our session I had some time to kill. I was driving around near the Old Hatteras Coast Guard base. I spotted a family of deer and a few rabbits grazing right before sunset. It was neat to see nature coexisting peacefully. Please scroll down for a few frames of my evening with the Anderson family at the Old Lighthouse Beach!
