Dana Jo Photography – Weddings & Portraits » Eastern North Carolina and Destination Wedding Photographer

It’s SENIOR PICTURE time ๐Ÿ™‚ I LOVE doing senior pictures, they are just so much fun!

On July 4th weekend I was at one of my favorite places in the world, Hatteras Island, NC. Something about the Outer Banks just makes me feel so alive, and every time I make the trip down Highway 12 it’s like I’m seeing it for the first time. I can never get enough of it, and part of my heart stays there when I’m away. I am so thankful to be able to spend time at such a beautiful place, and spend it with people I love.

Speaking of people I love…my beautiful cousin happened to be at the beach that weekend as well and she is coming up on her senior year or high school so we decided to take the opportunity to do her senior pictures! We had gorgeous weather, and I had a blast doing her photos! She is precious and gorgeous from the inside out ๐Ÿ™‚ Her beautiful sister, Jaime and good friend Holly (also beautiful!) were there with her as well, so I was able to snap some pics of them with her too!

Jasmine, thanks for asking me to do your senior photos! You are awesome, and I hope you have an AMAZING senior year!! God bless!

Last month my hubby and I flew down to Costa Rica for a week of together-time, adventures, and to see another piece of God’s beautiful creation! We stayed in Tamarindo. It is absolutely GORGEOUS there, and the culture is so inviting and the locals were as nice as can be! We had an amazing stay in Costa Rica, and I figured I’d share some of the photos from our trip. ENJOY!
(note: some of the photos are just with the point-and-shoot camera, so the quality isn’t as sharp as usual)

Adventure Tours! We rode horses, repelled, zip-lined, and river-tubed. We also enjoyed an AMAZING Costa Rican dinner, followed by a mud bath, and a dip in the natural hot springs ๐Ÿ™‚
these pics were with the waterproof point-and-shoot, but still cool.

We also took a day trip to NICARAGUA. We really loved that country! We had an incredible tour guide who lead us to experience the Nicaraguan culture (including their yummmmmmmy cuisine). He showed us SO many amazing sights there, and we probably had the best day of our vacation in Nicaragua. Of course there are many sights we missed, since we were only there for a day, but Nicaragua is definitely on our list to visit again so we can see the rest of this beautiful country.
