Named Best Photographer of the Beach in the Outer Banks of NC? Thanks to everyone who voted for studio nassetta photography!
Well, there is no denying it, I did not keep up with any kind of blogging for the past year. I always have the best of intentions..but many of you know how it goes when you are trying to keep up with two young kids and being a girl boss at the same time. While I still intend to go back and blog a few favorite sessions from the past year, I figured I’d pick a “few” highlights of the year. Of course, going through all of my sessions and picking out the top ones is like telling someone to choose their favorite child. Pretty impossible to do..so I just went for it and still left plenty out of the mix. I’m already having regret to leave out so many. I might have to do a “best of” personal photography blog next. I thought this first image was good for a “looking back” post. It’s a favorite local family’s kids looking out to the ocean. Looking back or looking forward? I think it works both ways.
In the past year I have photographed numerous families, a business, and a few weddings ranging all over the Outer Banks of North Carolina the way from Corolla, Duck, Southern shores, Kitty Hawk, Nags Head Woods, and the beaches Nags Head NC. I even had one destination photo shoot up in the historic battlefields of Manassas Virginia at the very end of year. I am always willing to travel to more exotic destinations like Hawaii (hint hint). Heck, I’d even take Charlottesville, VA. I was also highly honored this year being named “Best of the Beach” for 2016 in the Outer Banks of NC. https://outerbanksvoice.com/2016/11/04/and-now-the-winners-of-2016s-best-of-the-beach-polling/ Thank you to all who voted and have supported me through out the years..I cannot tell you what it means to me!
Without further ado – here are some of my favorites from 2016. You will recognize many photographs if you follow studio nassetta on facebook..but there are a few that you probably have not seen. I have noticed that many of my favorites involve sweet little girls. Maybe that’s because I’m always photographing my own two crazy little boys and it’s so much fun to have a change of pace and capture a girl and her tutu! I also noticed that many of my favorites happen to be black and white. Usually I tend to edit photos in black and white to highlight the expression in the photo and let it stand on it’s own without distraction. It’s a personal artistic preference..but I just love a good black and white photograph. Unless it’s a gorgeous pink tutu with a flower crown. Then it’s color all the way…
What are your favorites? I’d love to know!
All images shot with my trusty Canon 5D Mark III. Also a new addition to the studio nassetta family this year!
