MaKenzie | Croatan High School Class of 2017 | Atlantic Beach Senior Photographer

With both brains & beauty, MaKenzie recently graduated early from Croatan High School. For MaKenzie’s senior portraits we opted for a relaxed vibe beach session at the Peppertree Resort in Atlantic Beach. We were so blessed to be shooting on a beautiful day with temps in the 60s and bright blue skies (in February – what?!).

We started the session on the beach down by the water with MaKenzie wearing a lovely sleeveless maxi dress with a sweetheart neckline and flowy skirt.

We then transitioned to her second outfit for shooting on the dunes: a cute off-the-shoulder top with a Mediterranean vibe (I loved the white tassels!), dark blue skinny jeans and the most adorable monogrammed leather flip-flops. We also shot this look up on the boardwalk with the ocean and dunes behind her.

We moved inland to shoot her in her third outfit, a preppy navy & white ensemble made up of a long-sleeved navy top and a patterned skirt accented with navy sailor buttons on either side. We took advantage of the lovely scrub oak trees on the resort’s property as our backdrop for these last portraits.

I always love shooting with MaKenzie because she is not only gorgeous but she has a wonderful, caring personality that really shines through in her images. Good luck to you, Kenzie, in wherever your journey takes you next in this big wide world!
