Coastal Minis Previews
Holden Beach Family Beach Photographer
If you’ve been to one of our Coastal Minis before or had any portraits taken at the beach, you will know one thing, the beach is just unpredictable. Last year we had a huge storm and a house fire (road closed in both directions so no clients could get through) right in the middle of our minis, but it was over and done in about thirty minutes, and we just kept going and finished some fun family portraits. This year, we ended up with lots of sunshine and some wind. There’s always some wind going on at the beach! When we went back another day to snap a few portraits of Ericka with her family, we were barely out there when the lightning started..I haven’t ran in I don’t know how long, and Ericka’s husband is yelling, “Run for your life,” as we all run down the boardwalk. This is the stuff memories are made of! It didn’t even end up storming just some thunder and lightning for a few minutes (enough for us to run back) and some really ugly skies. We ended our week at the beach by heading out to our favorite, Beaches-n-Cream for some big ice cream cones for the kids. They have Krispy Kreme ice cream, which is absolutely amazing. When we are at Holden, we may or may not be all stalking their instagram to see when they post their daily flavors.I missed Krispy Kreme this trip..you have to be quick when they post their flavors because they do run out. One of my nieces really loved their Mexican Chocolate flavor this week, and I got my second favorite, Red velvet cheesecake. I may or may not be missing the beach right now a whole bunch, especially the ice cream. Ok, back to sugar detox and on to the sweet family portraits!
