  • Aloha!!!

    Hi! This is the photography and lifestyle blog of Sheena Bean of Photography In the Light. I am a lifestyle photographer based in Kauai, Hawaii. I moved here with my family in January of 2015. My husband is the youth pastor at Lihue Missionary Church and we are raising three little world changers, Noakea, Banyan, and Avenlea Wren. This is His story, our story, and little snippets of life on a 562 square mile rock in the middle of the Pacific.

Eastern North Carolina Photographer {Families: Roberts}

Just when I think that I have exploited a location for all its worth, I find new ways to capture a family.  Every family is different and every time I shoot a new family at an “old” location, it breathes new life into it.  I have been shooting a lot of sessions in downtown Elizabeth City lately.  Honestly, it’s a really photogenic town and I am thankful that I live so close to downtown.

This sweet family drove over from Raleigh to spend the weekend with some friends and asked me if I would like to do a family session for them while they were in town.  We had met before, when we did a mini session last spring with the vintage truck, so we wanted to mix things up and give their next session a more urban feel.  When we first started out, their three year old was feeling a bit under the weather and wasn’t super stoked about posing for pictures.  I find that, when this happens, sometimes the best thing I can do is take the child for a walk alone and help her warm up to me and to the camera.  Sure enough, after a few minutes of playing together and letting her mess with the camera, she was all about posing for me.  I got so many great shots of her that it was hard to narrow things down.

Roberts family, thank you so much for spending the evening with me and letting me get to you know guys better.  I can’t wait to do it again!

Photo Bomber!!!  My wonderful friend Alyson surprised me and showed up to watch my kids while I did this session.  Pretty stinkin’ amazing!

Nursing Break!  Little Miss A needed some mamma time <3

I could do a whole post with 2-4 year olds and their cheesy toddler smiles.  It’s my fav!

Real life – mom and dad looking on while the kids spin around and act silly.  I can’t script these things.
