Me and My Daughter | Wilmington NC Family Photographer

As a family photographer, I make an effort to have photos of myself and my daughter.  I am so unbelievably thrilled with this image of me and Olivia. As a Wilmington NC family photographer, I am always behind the camera. It seems as though the times I pass the camera to someone else, Olivia is uncooperative. Most of the images of the two …

Happy Birthday to my sweet little nephew! It feels like just yesterday that I photographed his newborn sessions on Thanksgiving. He was born 3 days before Thanksgiving. Today he is 3 years old. There is something special about your brother and sister’s kids. It’s not quite like the love of having your own little bundle of joy. That love is a love …
