About Our Family

Wow... I mean, 11 years ago I'm picking up a camera trying to figure out how to become a photographer and who EVER would have known what that would lead to today! A happy little gift shop being run out of our little bitty cottage by the sea in Hatteras? Needless to say.. we are SO thankful you are here!

We're Amanda and Mike (married on the Outer Banks over 10 years ago!) and our three little girls are our WORLD. They are hilarious, compassionate, wild, ridiculous and amazing. What matters most to us is a simple life, salt air, sea glass.. laying in piles of pillows and blankets on Friday Fun Nights and just making the best out of each day. You can follow along a lot of our daily weirdness and adventures in the sand on Instagram at @amandahedgepethobx :) 

It means so much to us that you've visiting and supported our shop. Just know.. you always have a friend here on Hatteras Island! Sending salt air hugs your way! XOXO
