This blog post was supposed to be up last month. Whoopsies!

I put clients first and made sure I was at least mostly caught up before I took time to edit a ‘personal’ session and blog post. This was our first family vacation with Cammy outside of mama’s belly and although it was a short lived two days and one night, it was heaven in our favorite place on earth, the Outer Banks 🙂

When I was 9 months old, I had my first taste of OBX. I will never forget looking back on those images my parents took when I was a child and thinking I can’t wait until I have a little girl, then I can take her to the beach, too! Well, I couldn’t have planned on that but it happened and I am so beyond grateful for it. We visited our favorite restaurant where we went after our wedding reception, Mama Kwan’s…Wing’s for tacky souvenirs, Brew Thru for Cammy’s $17 t-shirt she’ll fit into for one freaking month and Jockey’s Ridge. We paid extra to have an ocean view room and had the crappiest hotel the beach has to offer, but hey- at the end of the night we had pink Moscato and each other, haha! 🙂

Cammy got to wear my wedding dress on the same beaches of the Outer Banks where mommy and daddy said I do. I hope she will cooperate this much next year when we do the same thing! 🙂 Enjoy! 🙂
