Sneak Peek for Mary Katherine & Ted {Wilmington Engagement Photographer}

I had a wonderful session with Mary Katherine & Ted last evening!  I am so thrilled with the photos, I had a very difficult time narrowing their preview.  Their obvious love for one another absolutely made the photos and made my job so easy!

Mary KatherineOctober 19, 2009 - 2:12 pm

I didn’t even realize there was a place for comments on here until I talked to Ted during lunch and he asked if I had seen all of the notes folks were leaving! When I read through them all, I got choked up! The compliments they gave you were very deserving and we can’t wait to see the final gallery. It was nice to have a family member take such special pictures for us!

CarrieOctober 20, 2009 - 10:27 pm

Beautiful! Such a gorgeous couple. Their love is obvious, you captured it beautifully!


{Rubber ducky, you’re the one!} – Topsail Beach Photographer

Thursday morning I met up with my dear friend and her daughter (my goddaughter) to get some images she’d been talking about for weeks! Merryn is about to outgrow her ‘ducky’ and her mom wanted some shots of her in it on the beach before that happened. This was one of my favorite sessions, it was so much fun!

{Sunrise} – Surf City Photographer

I had a sunrise session today with the cutest little 13 month old I know, and I managed to grab these images while we were there. I’m a night owl by nature so seeing a sunrise, especially one this beautiful, is a rare treat. It takes a photo session to get me out of bed before dawn but I’m so glad I was there this morning!





I love my job!

Your pictures are beautiful! I love the sunsets, and your beautiful blue skies! The people are awesome, too!


{Sweet little Ivey} – Surf City Photographer

I started my Saturday morning with the most adorable nine month old little girl and her doting Mama!    Ivey wasn’t too thrilled about being on the beach, but she sure was a cutie!

Those blue eyes are amazing.

And I like the sunflare on the second photo. It’s a nice touch and gives the photo a very timeless, ethereal feel–like it came from a dream.

Stacie M.September 19, 2009 - 3:56 pm

What a beautiful baby. And I love the sun flare! One of the few times I’ve seen it used appropriately. It adds such a wonderful warm tone.

Chris PeacockSeptember 22, 2009 - 11:45 am

Looks as good as her two PaPa’s.

Iris HorneSeptember 22, 2009 - 1:11 pm

Judy HorneSeptember 22, 2009 - 4:18 pm

No Chris she looks as good as her Aunt Judy! (don’t be trying to take the credit-that is Edwards/Macon/Jarman looks). She is my little angel…I just want to hug and kiss her.

Aunt KarenSeptember 24, 2009 - 9:29 pm

Beautiful Baby Ivey !!!!!

ChristiOctober 12, 2009 - 10:27 pm

Gorgeous, as always! That’s one pretty baby!


{The “K” Family} – Wilmington Family and Maternity Photographer

Early this very cloudy morning I had the pleasure of meeting up with Amy and her family for some photos. She is 35 weeks pregnant with her second daughter and I was thrilled to capture some images of this very special time for them.

Amy, here is your sneak peek!




It was a blast working with you and your beautiful family! I can’t wait to meet your newest addition!
