{Event} A Nute Family Celebration!

A summer is not complete without a trip to the Outer Banks. In August, we got to join Allison’s best friend Brynne, and her entire extended family for a few days of fun in Nags Head. The family wanted to capture photos of Aunt Mary and Uncle Jim’s 50th Anniversary celebration, along with family photos that spanned four generations. With only about an hour of perfect evening light on the beach, we had to work quickly, but we managed to get each individual family, and a grand finale shot of the entire crew.

In November, my sister Jennifer Lamb will be having a baby girl. She will be named Violet after our grandmother. This month we went to Holden Beach, NC for a mini vacation and grabbed these photos. Thanks Jen!

Grandma’s hands form a heart over the little girl who will share her namesake.

{Personal} Our travels to San Diego!

San Diego is one of the most beautiful, laid back places on the planet! Being teachers, Allison and I use the summertime to travel. We discussed and decided we’d head to California for our 1st anniversary. We received an invitation from our friend Amanda to visit her in San Diego, which sounded like a great opportunity. We met Amanda at Oak View and have stayed in contact ever sense; she moves often because Josh, her husband is in the military, and happened to be in San Diego for the summer. Amanda was an amazing tour guide, and even dropped us off at the hotel for our anniversary evening. We enjoyed the most delicious meal at Island Prime and were so surprised when Steve Harrington (one of my best friends) found out where we were celebrating, and picked up the check from 3000 miles away! He never fails to amaze me. Thanks Steve!  San Diego is an amazing place and we hope to visit again someday. Enjoy some of our photos!
