Recently we went on our annual vacation to Outer Banks of North Carolina. My husband and I have been going for ten years now. We rent these gorgeous oceanfront homes with other families. The houses are very large and many families comfortably fit in them. Sharing our vacation with family and friends has never been a disappointment. We have built so many wonderful memories together.
The first year we went, it was my husband and our 3 kids, now all adults, my sister and 2 of her kids, 2 other couples and their children. The next year we invited other families to join us. The annual event has evolved with a core group of families that always goes; the Williams, and the Briggs and the Fords. Every year different families have joined us.
Now I get to the vacation creeper part..............
This year Ron and Kathy's daughter, son-in-law and their two children joined us for the week. It was so much fun watching these two adorable children. I could not help myself, I was constantly taking their pictures.
I had so much fun photographing these little ones. Mom gave me full permission. Not having little ones any more, I often am dying to take pictures of children I see out in public. Parents don't look very kindly on this. I look like a total creeper.
As we were visiting one of the light houses in the area and I was again taking multiple photos of the Brigg's grandchildren, I got an idea. What if I started a service for families; take me along on your vacation and I'll take pictures of you family so you don't have to. All you have to do is provide my accommodations. I get a vacation doing what I love to do and you get professional photos. I can even pretend I don't know you. The service could be called Vacation Creeper. Any takers out there? .........Crickets! I didn't think so.
Anyway, here are some more of photos that I was able to take because of this wonderful vacation creeping opportunity. (Thanks Sarah)
These kids both love hats!
Don't get between this girl and her ice cream!
After 31 years of teaching, I have decided to retire and start a new chapter of my life as a photographer. It has been my passion for about 7 years now.
