Castellani Family

This sweet family met me at Wrightsville Beach for a maternity session a couple of weeks ago, and they never fail to bring so much love to their sessions. Tucker kept me on my toes, but I loved seeing him discover the world around him. He’s going to be a great big brother. Congratulations to you all, for I can’t wait to meet your new bundle!

Field family

I love meeting and photographing new families. There are just those perfectly timed moments in life, and this family session was one of those moments. We went back and forth all day trying to decide whether to reschedule or just go for it, and man did we make the right decision. The sky was amazing, the family just beautiful, and the colors were simply incredible. Happy New Year’s to you Field family, and prayers for many blessings in 2020! z14z12z10z9z11z8z7z6z5z4z3z2z1z13

Christmas Joy

I set out for a new Christmas adventure this afternoon. I grabbed my camera and just started roaming Mayfaire Town Center, Wilmington, North Carolina. I felt a tug to visit Santa’s Workshop near the movie theater. I walked in and felt pure Christmas joy. I was greeted by two sweet ladies selling the most delightful Moravian sugar cookies, and so much more. They offered me a sample and went on to tell me all about the history of the Moravian star. The stars were hanging everywhere, and can I just say WOW! Dewey’s Bakery is a one-stop shop for all your gifting needs. Check it out, and don’t forget to slow down, so you can feel the tugs on your heart this holiday season…….. #covenantmoravianchurch #deweysbakery

The Smith’s

What an honor to photograph this beautiful couple on their way to the Marine Corps Ball this past weekend. It was a first for me, but what a treat! This stunning couple brought style and grace to every shot. I mean just look at them! Grateful for his service………….z1z4z2z3z5z6z8z7z9z16z15z14z11z10z13z12


I do not get to do near enough senior guy portrait sessions, so when this his mama reached out to me I was super excited! Looking through his gallery, his choice to shoot at Hoggard High School proved to be a great decision. His good looks coupled with that sweet spirit makes the perfect combination for much success. Thank you Brooke for trusting me with this special time in your lives. I know he is going to do great things! Congratulations Macon and may God bless the rest of your senior year!s10s11s9s8s20s18s19s16s14s15s13s12s6s7s5s3s2s1

The Strubhar Family

Wrightsville Beach seems to be one of my most popular session sites this year. This adorable military family traveled a couple of hours to capture a few fun family moments. The kids were full of personality bringing tons of life to their images. Thank you Strubhar for your service to our country and for the honor of being your photographer this year. God bless you always!z10z12z8z7z6z11z5z9z4z2

This stunning senior hung out with me on Wrightsville Beach a few weeks ago and  brought tons of style along with her.  I mean just look at that face! Makeup & accents of fun jewelry added the perfect amount of flare. The camera loves you Emily, and boy so does your mom and dad.  Both pride and joy were evident on their faces throughout your session. You are going to do great things sweet girl……. Blessings to you always
