This Summer, we took our first vacation in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. We had an incredible time, full of memories that are just now starting to fade and not be quite as fresh. Lucky for us, we had our beach family pictures taken by Sarah Kimmel Photography. I can honestly say that my absolute favorite part about our OBX Vacation was having it captured on film by Sarah Kimmel.
We have beautiful photographs that allow us to relive our Outer Banks vacation every time we walk by the framed photos in the hall or flip through our photo album. These photos will be treasured even more as the years pass and our children grow up. Our special beach vacation will be preserved.
Sarah Kimmel Photography Review
Capturing beautiful beach family pictures takes more than the setting, right time of day (6:45pm according to Sarah), and cute kids. To get the best photos, you need an experience professional that is patient, works well with various ages and group sizes, and takes time to get to know you and what you want from your photos. Sarah Kimmel Photography delivers all of that, with a smile.
Sarah Kimmel Offers the Best Outer Banks Photography Experience
I was extremely impressed by our experience with Sarah Kimmel. She was very flexible from the beginning to the end. She offers to go to any location you desire (some travel fees apply) to capture the setting you are looking for. Or, if you are like me and don’t know what would be best, she has plenty of choice spots to suggest! The Outer Banks offer an ideal backdrop for beach family pictures with the natural beauty all around. There are spots with beautiful coastline, natural grasses, sand dunes, piers, lighthouses, and more all around the Outer Banks. We chose the coastline and pier.
Outer Banks Photographer that is good with kids
My son had strep throat while we were on vacation. We didn’t know this on the day that Sarah Kimmel photographed us, but Elijah was a little “uncooperative”, he really didn’t want his photo taken, he wanted to splash in the waves. Sarah was super patient with a very carefree attitude that made Elijah calm and responsive to her. She struck a deal with him one-on-one and he delivered the best smiles for her. We were curious how she could do such magic. All it took was for her to offer to let him choose some poses of his own in the end. He was a happy camper. If you are looking for an Outer Banks Photographer that is good with kids, Sarah Kimmel Photography is for you.
What I also liked was that she was good at family portrait poses. I have had other family portraits where the photographer didn’t do this and the pictures didn’t turn out “professional” looking. She had great ideas to pose us as a family, parent with one child, as a married couple, and as individuals. This was way more than just a few shots with the whole family on the beach, this was a whole portrait session! Her enthusiasm and friendliness put us all at ease and made our Outer Banks beach photography experience an enjoyable experience.
Another thing that I liked was that she did not rush us, yet it didn’t take too much time. She was completely patient with our kids who would rather play in the sand than get their pictures taken. She took just the right amount of pictures to capture what we wanted and it took less than 45 minutes.
I highly recommend that you add Sarah Kimmel Photography to your next Outer Banks vacation. Capturing your vacation in the Outer Banks with beach family pictures will complete the entire experience. With professional photos, you can relive the fun and beauty of your family at the ocean for years to come.
