About twice a year, my friends from school like to take a trip out to Oak Island for a weekend to celebrate our friends’ Landon and Steven’s bdays. This time around, we decided to change it up and dedicate the weekend to Maggie and Paul, two friends who are headed off to the Peace Corps this year. I’m not one to bring a camera out at night, but I did decide to take my camera to the beach and around the island to snap a few shots of the crew during the day. This was actually the first time I racked up enough courage to pull my camera out in front of my friends since I’ve started to get more serious about photography. But throughout the weekend, as my friends got more comfortable in front of the camera, so did I. I wish I had done this a lot sooner, so from now on I’m going to make it a goal to get better about having my camera on hand on all our future trips.

So here’s a few selected pictures of the weekend, hopefully giving you a little synopsis of the weekend (during the day at least!):
