UNCW Senior Photos at Wrightsville Beach, NC | Kristen Daughtridge

I don’t get the chance to photograph college seniors too too often and when I do they’re almost always in the spring. There’s a huge rush to get all of the photos in front of campus AND head to the beach with everyone who is in town for the nice weather.

Kristen was a December graduate, which meant we had all of the sunshine, beach, and time with the seahawk that we could want! We did have to compete for parking spots with the surfers, but that’s better than the summer crowd!

We started on campus with all of the greenery that popped beautifully against her white romper. I so appreciate that UNCW makes sure that all of the flowers at the front of campus are so well kept 🙂

Then we headed to the south end of Wrightsville Beach. This is one of my favorite locations because the wind is much calmer than the ocean side, which lets us get the water but also not completely mess up hair from the wind!

She honestly looked like a MERMAID. Between the glow from the sun, her hair, and the flowiness of her two piece dress…I was in awe. This is definitely one of my favorite sessions to date.

Here are my favorites from her gallery!!

The sun came out for the most beautiful glow.

I love the classic seahawk “celebration” photos!

Her natural laugh is SO PRETTY.

Now to the beach…I cannot get over this sunlight or this outfit!

This is one of my favorites from the whole day!

It was actually pretty cold in these shots…Wrightsville Beach looked pretty but everyone was wearing sweatshirts by this point haha.

Those eyelashessssss.

Doesn’t she look like a mermaid?!
