Mom’s wish for mother’s day was to visit the lighthouse and see the ocean. One of her favorite places.

I am a local photographer working in Brunswick County, New Hanover County and surrounding areas. I enjoy family, child, and newborn photography. I have been doing digital photography and editing for nearly 6 years now and have decided to take it to a new stage.

I am from North Carolina. I have gone to school in Brunswick County. Since then I have felt the need to see the world and traveled to work in Turkey, Thailand, South Korea and recently Moscow, Russia.

I have returned to the local area to stay. Nothing beats being near the family that you love. One of my favorite things to do is portrait photography which has mainly been a hobby, but now I have decided to turn it into a business.

Favorite Memories of the Beach:

We once lived on Caswell Beach on Oak Island and I enjoyed the beach as a front yard. I can remember walking at night in the winter while we picked up whole whelk shells by the bucket loads or finding live fuzzy sand dollars with our toes as we swam past the sandbars at the lowest tide. My favorite memory was sitting up on my dad’s shoulders on the bluest of summer days out deeper than I could touch when suddenly a fish with the longest nose (I thought it was a swordfish and others might have said it was a Marlin) jumped up high from the water to our right between us and Bald Head Island. I thought it was an incredible event to witness but remember Daddy gripping me a bit tighter than normally and saying we should go in. He knew the water better than I .
