If you're anything like me, you find peace and happiness at the beach. Now, getting into a bathing suit is another thing, but the freedom of sand and water is where I find the peace. The beauty of sand and sun holds no bounds, but when you're smack dab in the middle of North Carolina, there isn't much opportunity for walks on the beach in the mornings or family photos at sunset with cotton candy skies, sand, and water. Luckily for us we do only live about 3 hours from the beach, but it doesn't give me the ability to photograph families on the beach like I'd love to.

A couple of months ago I ventured to Lake Norman to check out Jetton Park. I had heard that it was stunning and had a little beach of its own and they do! I was so excited. When the "J" family wanted a fun and unique spot for their photos this past year I knew they would love Jetton Park and they did!

We got so lucky when the rain held off and the skies opened up with color and beautiful clouds. Their little pup Brady even came along for some exploration. Jetton Park offers trees, woods, sand, and water! These more traditional portraits take me out of my comfort zone at times versus the more laid back photos I usually do, but when it's portraits by the water, I can't refuse, I will become a Lake Norman Family Photographer for all the beach photos!!!

My family has taken several trips out here to explore, it is worth the drive from Charlotte! Definitely get out and explore Lake Norman (and if you need a Lake Norman Family Photographer... I'm your lady, LOL)!
