Outer Banks Family Beach Portraits - Corolla NC Family Pictures Currituck
Tuesday, February 06, 2018
2018 Limited Edition Back to School

We met the lovely 'F' family in Corolla for beach portraits this past summer.  This beautiful family travels to the Outer Banks of North Carolina each year from NJ - it's tradition!  This month this incredibly sweet couple is celebrating their 50th anniversary and chose family pictures to commemorate this special occasion rather than the usual party.  I love this! I so enjoyed every phone conversation leading up to and following our time together.  It felt like I was talking with family each and every time, a testament to how amazing they truly are! Extra special is that I would speak with them as a couple.  They would each get on an extension.  How sweet is that?!The kids and grandkids live about an hour away from their grandparents, yet they are a very close family and spend lots of time together. The girls are major softball players from what I’ve been told. Like world series players! There is a world series in Virginia they've attended. Their dad was almost a professional baseball player and helps with coaching the girls. Grandma is so proud of all of them!Family photos are so important to all in this family!The kids and grandkids do family pictures each year for Christmas cards.  Grandma creates albums for each grandchild every year for their birthday. As soon as I heard this, I knew they were the perfect clients. These Outer ...

2018 Limited Edition Back to School

The super sweet and beautiful Blechacz family vacationed here in the Outer Banks a few weeks ago. It had been a couple of years since their last visit, and Bethany was looking to update their family portraits.  You can find their sneak peek here. When they last visited, Bethany and Phil had just begun the process of adopting their oldest son from China.  These are their first beach portraits as a family of eight.  Enjoy their video!  (Be sure to view in HD!)  :) We are so honored that Bethany chose us to document their family once again!  We had such a lovely time and hope they did as well.  We hope to see you again soon, Blechacz family!

2018 Limited Edition Back to School

Did you know....not all family beach portrait sessions actually occur ON the beach? We did a family beach session for the 'B' family two years ago.  They came to OBX all the way from Wisconsin!  Having just adopted their second child from China, little 'J', they used their time in the Outer Banks to bond and attach.  I thought Bethany and Phil were brilliant to plan a vacation specifically for this very important time for their family.  They also planned dates for each of them with the individual children, something I can only imagine means so much when you have five children.  Bethany told me at that time they were just beginning the process of adopting again. So here they are, two years later, now a family of eight.  They now have a teenager, and decided it was time for some more family bonding in OBX.  I was thrilled when Bethany reached out to let me know they were returning.  It wasn't easy to schedule - I had a single date available during their two week stay.  Oh how I prayed it wouldn't rain!  The weather has really not played well with my already packed schedule!  :( Bethany planned the most adorable wardrobe.  Vintage boardwalk was the theme, and she pulled it off brilliantly!  So of course, we headed to a boardwalk for the session.  ;)  While it didn't rain (thank ...

Exciting Announcement! - National Association of Professional Child Photographers Ambassador
Friday, March 03, 2017
2018 Limited Edition Back to School

The last few weeks have been a whirlwind around here at MKP!  Shortly before leaving for Destin, Florida to attend SYNC, I applied for the ambassador program at National Association of Professional Child Photographers.  I've been a member of NAPCP for a couple of years now, and as far as I know, there are no other local members, including Southside Hampton Roads in Virginia as well as Northeastern North Carolina.  Therefore, whenever there is a gathering, there is nothing local.  I've never attended one!  What is a gathering and what is an ambassador, you may ask?  From the NAPCP website:"An extension of the National Association of Professional Child Photographers, the NAPCP Ambassador Program takes an active role in building thriving communities of artists committed to growing their skills, their artistry, and their business. NAPCP Ambassadors are literally the eyes, ears, and face of the global association, kindling personal relationships and connections on a local level. By fostering connections and conversations, NAPCP Ambassadors enable the compassionate collaboration that is a hallmark of the NAPCP vision." You may also be wondering what any of this has to do with SYNC!  Well, I will share more about SYNC at a later date as I am still processing it all.  It was an amazing experience, leaving me feeling ...
