Preschool Cuties | Wilmington, NC Preschool Photographer

I've been taking preschool pictures at Silas' school for 3 years now. This is a rare year that there are no siblings IN the school. I always love the sibling shots I get during preschool pictures - so this year I offered the parents the opportunity to bring in their older/younger children for Sibling Mini-Sessions. Man was it fun! Lucky for us there's this beautiful lot of trees right next to the school that makes for a perfect backdrop.

It's been an amazing 3 years at this school - Silas has had a blast - I can't believe he's going to be in Kindergarten next year.

And a few of the individuals! There are some seriously cute kids at this school!
Wish me luck - off to shoot another preschool today and tomorrow!

Look who's ONE! | Wilmington, NC Children's Photographer

Has it really been a whole year since Miss Addison was born? I guess so - seeing as this was last year:

And now look at this big girl!!! She has the most amazing blue eyes.
And although right after that image - she took a spill off the bucket - she shoot it right off and turned in her party balloons for a party dress. What a princess!
I did say party dress, right? It's a good thing - because she wants to paaarrrrttttyyyy!
And then we ended the session with a little story time. Addison loves books. And remember those beautiful blue eyes? Well - on this blue chair - they pop out even more!
Happy Birthday Big Girl!!!!!

Downtown Family | Wilmington, NC Family Photographer

Man - these boys are so stinking cute! They did so good downtown - lots of smiles and laughter! You've seen them before when little V was just a newbie -

Sessions downtown are always fun - especially when they involve ice cream!
Thanks for the awesome session!

K & N - getting bigger!

You last saw this beautiful family here: When Nolan was just 10 days old. Well, now he's sitting up - and such a big boy - and his big sister - just turned 5. Lot's to celebrate in this family. We met at the Arboretum for morning portraits. I love early morning light.

Just look how the light shines through big sister's hair.

And Nolan - full of smiles!

Abbey's almost one! | Carolina Beach Photographer

I could just eat her up! The last time I saw her - it was an afternoon mini-session - and she wasn't happy. This time we met at the boardwalk in Carolina Beach at 8am - and boy could you see the difference. She was full of smiles this time.

She's not quite walking - but almost!
She was hiding behind mom - and then peeked around to give me the best smile - look at those little teeth!
Her first experience with the beach. She was mesmerized by the sound of the ocean. She liked crawling around on the boardwalk.
And really - what can I say about this portrait? The pink against the blue wall - the beautiful eyes looking right into me - cute, cute, cute!
Even at the end of the session - she was just a ball full of happiness. Here, her dad is lifting her up - and she and I are playing. I could photograph her all day!

Sweet 16 | Wilmington, NC Photographer

What a refreshing session. I'll tell you - these must have been the most polite, well mannered teens I've ever met. They had the most positive attitude toward the photo session - and made my job very easy! Meet MB - she just turned 16 - and mom really wanted to capture who she is right now. Of course we got some of her and her brother. Aren't they beautiful kids!
I love the sun on her hair here.
MB has the most beautiful smile - but after some practice - I got her to not smile - and WOW - it really brought out her eyes.
While MB was changing - I got a couple more of her brother - Watch out girls!
Mom really wanted a portrait of MB on the beach in this dress. She was such a trooper - it was pretty cold - and the water even colder - and yet here she is - with a wave washing over her feet - and she's making it look like it's nothing! Oh, and yes - that's her brother in the background climbing on the rocks.
That look, those eyes, just one more time!
Thanks again for such a great session. It was so much fun. And as much as I love photographing toddlers - it was nice to relax a little!

My Love!
