Does this smile not just make your heart happy? This young lady brought tons of smiles and just the sweetest spirit to her senior portrait session last week. The Carolina Yacht Club at Wrightsville Beach made for the perfect backdrop to her natural beauty. She is heading off to tackle her senior year……..Congratulations Margaret on all you’ve accomplished thus far! May God bless your senior year and give you much success moving forward!


Wells Family

This sweet family came to visit our beaches and decided to have an extended family portrait session while they were here. The perfect weather coupled with the excellent outfit choices made for some really great photos. There’s just something special about watching a little one discover the ocean. Thank you Wells family for allowing me to crash your family vacation! Enjoy the rest of your week. God bless!


Bradshaw family

Extended family makes life even sweeter, and it doesn’t get any sweeter than these three. Celebrating little Savannah’s first birthday made for the perfect opportunity to snap a few family pics while party guest were still arriving. Hard to believe she is already a year old.  Happy Birthday baby girl!  We look forward to watching you grow and discover the world.      “Every second is of infinite value”  ~ Johann von Goethe


Addie 1st day of Kindergarten

Hard to believe this sweet girl is heading off to Kindergarten tomorrow morning…..I can still remember being glued to the newborn nursery window for over an hour just watching her breathe.  Becoming a grandparent to our three has been one of life’s greatest blessings. I know God has big plans for Adalyn, because he gave her a big sassy personality.  She is smart, brave, and full of life. She loves teaching others and has a servants heart.  I’m praying that God will keep her safe and use her in a mighty way throughout all of her school years. Go get’em Addie!















Aaron & Katie

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11

What an honor to witness my sweet son propose to the one he loves. Oceanic made for the perfect spot, as this was the very place they experienced their first kiss. So so sweet…. We are beyond blessed to welcome Katie to our family, and we pray many blessings on their future………Congratulations to you both!







White Family

Meeting new families is truly a bonus to being a photographer. The White family was open to a new location. I discovered this spot a couple of weeks ago, and it’s just beautiful. The blue waters, grassy sand dunes, and fencing made for the perfect spot to makes some memories. Hoping to capture more of them in the future…….God bless



Armstrong Family

I’m getting more and more requests for downtown family portraits, and there’s no place I’d rather be. We found tons of cool spots to photograph this beautiful family along the waterfront last week. They are fun and silly and full of love for one another. Thank you Armstrong family for allowing me to get to know you a bit both personally and through my lens. Have a terrific summer!







Erin W.

Beauty & humility with a touch of silly are wonderful qualities to possess and this young lady has an abundance of all three. Our busy schedules finally worked in our favor allowing us to spend some time together in downtown Wilmington, NC. Erin you rocked your senior session. Congratulations to you sweet girl and may God bless you in all that your do. I’m so very excited about this next chapter in your life………..
