A new family, in their new home, and we’re the lucky photographers who knew the right people to land such a sweet session. We also learned that newborns don’t just sleep all the time.

Jill and Lee were married over Memorial Day weekend in 2003, down on Oak Island, NC (years before I started blogging or even using the word “blog”). Ten years and some change later, their lives moved into this beautiful, precocious, impossibly blonde direction.
Funnest session ever. These brothers have more personality in their little fingers than most adults have in… well, in their entire bodies I guess? I don’t think I’ve ever heard that saying played out to the end. Seth’s got a little Slim Shady in him… Shayne’s a little more on the MJ side <pours one […]
I can’t tell you how much we love this family. I met them way back in 2004, almost ten years ago, for Leigh and Cliff’s wedding on Daufuskie Island SC. Then, another family wedding for Deb and Jason. Then people started having kids and I got to shoot kids portraits and family reunion portraits… today, […]
Jenny is beautiful. She has those enviable doe eyes, hair that I would die for, a gorgeous body… and she lives in Hawaii. Yeah, it’s okay to hate her. Jenny’s portraits were made in her parents’ neighborhood, not far from Airlie Gardens (where Jenny and Kevin had their ceremony) and Wrightsville Beach (where we shot […]
Casey and Joseph’s portrait session was very special for me. Witnessing such a calm, peaceful, and shamelessly loving duo as they laughed and romped and played together; watching them write thoughts, little one-word messages to one another; listening to their giggles and inside jokes; knowing that this kind of relationship only exists between moms and […]
…but that’s no surprise. Hell, look at her gorgeous engagement photos (if you missed the THREE-PART blog post about them earlier this spring, here’s the quick links: one, two, three) And now that they are MARRIED We can show you her bridal session. YAY. These were sooo hard to keep under wraps […]
There is simply no way to describe this session, or these two wonderful people, and illustrate properly how much I admire and adore them. Or how incredible this session was to shoot, edit, and be a part of. Or what a creative force Casey is. Or how sweet, intelligent, and mature Joseph is. Or how […]
You know how good it feels when another photographer – a real, working, talented photographer – calls and asks you to photograph her family? It feels good. Real good. Validating and awesome, and even after a decade of doing this I got a little nervous about this session. I mean, check out Rae’s website! She […]
A few weeks ago, Leslie contacted me about possibly photographing her family on Emerald Isle while they vacationed here for the 4th of July holiday. It’s a bit of a hike from Wilmington, but I do love Emerald Isle, so of course I said yes! We had a great time working together the other evening, […]
Do you know Tom Rhodes? If not, you should. His music is *awesome*, you totally need to buy his CDs, add his dates to your calendar, and be a groupie. Morgan is a *fabulous* graphic artist – she’s currently working on my new logo for me, and I really could NOT be happier about it […]
, so you can see how absolutely wonderful their wedding was. Truly one of my most memorable of ALL time, and that’s really saying a lot. Leigh and Cliff have been awesome clients through the years. I’ve gotten so many great referrals from them, always incredible couples with wonderful weddings. Anyway, yeah, these guys are […]
