Stacey Hinkle Photography
I'm a beach worshiper and Virginia Beach native. My family has been vacationing here since before I was born. By the time I started college, I knew I'd make this my home. My son Dustin and I have been year round residents since 2001. I have a deep connection to this area and a passion to capture the essence of life here. It's a ritual to start my day jogging to the beach and photograph the mesmerizing sunrise. I cherish the chance to catch the surfers catching epic waves. My son Dustin is a lifeguard & full time student at Appalachian State University and lives with my boyfriend Ken and I in Kill Devil Hills during the summers. Our home is filled with a menagerie of dogs, Jackie, our Jack Russell, our Beagle, Zoe, and our Golden Retriever, Cabo. They keep me grounded, inspired and motivated. I'm in the vacation rental & real estate business and a volunteer firefighter with the Kill Devil Hills Fire Department. I strive to be happy and useful and bring that spirit of brotherly love to my photography shoots. Life is invigorating and I am grateful to live in this spiritual wonderland.
