Outer Banks Family Portraits | Nags Head Family Photographer | The Pasquarell Family

Is it too soon to want to go back to the beach yet? Every time I look at pictures from our vacation this year, I can't help but get excited for the possibility of going next year. Yes, I'm a little sad that my big vacation of the year is passed, but I have nothing besides good memories to look back on - and lots of pictures!

I mentioned in my post about our vacation that we took aside a night for updated family pictures. For the most part I didn't work during the week, but it's too important that my family has great, updated portraits - especially since both my sister and sister-in-law are expecting little ones within the next few months!

In some ways, it is a difficult thing to take pictures of my family. I know them each so well, and any picture that doesn't capture their personality screams at me. At the same time, though, looking back on their pictures gives me such joy. I love each one of these people so much - they are truly some of the most important people in my life. So, without further ado, our crazy, right-before-a-storm, we-have-one-hour-to-finish-these family portraits!

It blows me away that this is my LITTLE sister...she's always been beautiful, but when did she grow up so much?!

Maria Grace Photography

My name is Maria, and I am a wedding and family photographer based out of Hampton Roads, Virginia, but I am always excited about traveling. I love families who truly enjoy spending time with each other and living life together. I love couples that are looking forward to their wedding day because they are so excited to finally be married to.
