When I was young my family always planned a summer beach trip to Long Beach. Add 30 years and Long Beach is now called Oak Island. Name change aside the place is still very much the same: small southern town, not-so-crowded beaches, easy-going ocean and warm salt air.
In June we had our 2nd annual trip and it was fabulous! I literally only took one pair of shoes: flip flops. OKI is about 4 hours from Charlotte, which isn’t too torturously long when you have 2 toddlers in tow! Silver lining? I get to take some cute pics of the boys on the car ride down <3
It’s hard to believe that this time last year I didn’t even own a DSLR yet. All the photos I took last year were with my iphone! Now, my iphone takes great pics but having a REAL camera knocked my socks off. To my surprise I found myself putting my favorite 35mm 1.8 lens aside and using my Tokina 12-24 f4. It rocked my world 🙂
I had well over 300 edited photos so I tried to pick some favorites to share. Enjoy!
