A getaway to Seabrook Island, SC was the perfect way for this Raleigh family to end the summer. This is the second time I’ve photographed The Harris family and it was so fun to see their girls again! It’s crazy how much they have grown in just a year! Stephanie planned a family portrait session and had the vision that they would use the beach pictures for their Christmas Card this year. I had the most beautiful drive over to Seabrook Island, reminding me again why I love living in the low country.
And then the rain came.
I pulled up to their condo to unload my gear and begin allowing my lenses to acclimate. (Hello, summer humidity!) And that’s when the rain came pouring down. There was literally only ONE cloud over this area of the Island, and it was pouring. I have an amazing weather app and felt confident that we could wait out the storm. And I’m SO glad that we did! We were so grateful that it was a quick shower.
That’s when the rainbow appeared.
As I posed them for a family portrait on the beach, I realized there was a huge rainbow over the water! I mean, how lucky is that? You couldn’t have planned it if you tried! The girls were so excited to see a rainbow and it felt like a dream!
There’s just nothing better than twirling in pink dresses down the beach. I loved every moment of capturing this sweet family.
Cheers to their Christmas Cards being on point this year!
