{The “P” Family} – Topsail beach family photographer

A few weeks ago I received a call from “A” about wanting to do a session of she and her siblings for her parents. I must have had a bad connection, because I thought she said there were six of them. When we met for the shoot, there were actually eight of them! “A” even managed to get them all out of the house, dressed for a photo shoot, without her parents knowing what was going on. I was impressed!

It was an absolute joy to work with this family and the parents are lucky indeed to have such wonderful children. I cannot wait to hear how they react when they receive their canvas!

You have no idea how much you have touched my heart through these beautiful pictures. My children have been a tremendous blessing to me and their father. To see them come together in love and adoration for each other and for us as their parents, with this awesome gift, is truely remarkable and you have caught these special moments for a lifetime. THANK YOU!

Christina, it was truly a blast to work with your kids. They are definitely very special and love you very much. I’m so thrilled to hear that you’re pleased with the pictures! I’m very much looking forward to shooting some engagement photos in a couple of weeks, as well!

The last one is my favorite! What wonderful kids to do that for their parents! And they look awesome! The family’s spirit just shows through.


The “M” Family – Camp Lejeune family portraits, Topsail Beach family portraits

Last weekend I met up with a good friend on North Topsail Beach to take a few shots before her husband deployed. I’ve known the “M” family for nearly two years now and this is their third deployment in that time, so I wanted to capture some special images for them.

I’m positive you’ll be seeing more of them as the months go by so that Matt can stay updated on the family happenings while he’s away. My thoughts and prayers for safety are with the “M” family during this deployment.

Your attention to detail is astounding! The lighting, the angle, the way nothing looks posed. Not to mention your professionalism during a session and the love you have for what you’re doing shines through and makes even the most camera shy folks feel as if the time has flown by.
