Murphy’s Baptism*

Sweet Murphy from Raleigh was baptized at the Painter’s residence on Figure 8.  An amazing and beautiful experience!  Murphy is blessed beyond all measure!  I am so grateful to have been there to capture this…


Amanda + Ashley ~ Family

Each year I look forward to Amanda’s text…I just can’t believe how fast our years are going by.  It’s been such an honor taking their family pictures every year, and now I am watching her sister as she progresses though the wonderful stages of life!  From graduation to engagement to now capturing their first baby {Sawyer}!

Love you ladies, thank you.

When it takes time to get there…

So my BF from Junior High\High School came into Wilmington for a stay before heading to their final destination in NC.  I wasn’t able to spend any time with them ( 😦 ), as we were packing\moving during their time here.  I was able to come to the beach with them for a bit & take some of their family pictures.  I love the blue sky and the beach with kids; it just doesn’t get old…  I am glad that I didn’t wait until our house was unpacked to finally look at these yummy images…I needed this today!  Love you, Andrea.

Sweet Katherine’s Baby Boy*

So this puppy can change lives.  That is all that I have to say.  Love his beginning of being found while Kat was working on a Habitat for Humanity Home.  And love that his mommy will do anything for him.  Even allow her life to change direction.  God Bless Camden (and Katherine)!
