Oh this session makes my heart SO happy. Give me a beautiful girl, bright colors, and a sunny beach and I am LIVING! Rachel reached out to me after finding me through her cousin who was one of my past senior spokesmodels. She is so incredibly sweet and her blue eyes are to DIE for!
She’s a beach girl at heart and definitely wanted the coastal style to compliment her bright, colorful outfits. We started in my new favorite little neighborhood with the gorgeous trees, and then headed to the boat docks.
My favorite photos were definitely on the beach! It has been SO glowy recently. I usually use the sound side because there is less wind…but with fall weather comes calm beach nights and we were able to get the coolest photos on the jetty! It was funny because I actually haven’t used it for photos since her cousin Savannah’s photos two years ago!!
I loved walking around Wrightsville Beach with Rachel and her mom, talking about her future plans, dreaming of living on the ocean, and obsessing over how gorgeous Rachel looked.
I know I had the hardest time choosing favorites…do you have yours?!
