~ Willow’s Innocence ~

Wishing you the best life my little friend, wishing great things for the life that you have ahead of you.  I’m sure you’ll be just fine & accomplish spectacular things because you have loving parents and caring brothers….Willow’s Innocence



“When we are children we seldom think of the future. This innocence leaves us free to enjoy ourselves as few adults can. The day we fret about the future is the day we leave our childhood behind.”
― Patrick RothfussThe Name of the Wind

~ What Is A Dad ~

What Is A Dad?

A dad is someone who
wants to catch you before you fall
but instead picks you up,
brushes you off,
and lets you try again.

A Dad is a Hero

A dad is someone who
wants to keep you from making mistakes
but instead lets you find your own way,
even though his heart breaks in silence
when you get hurt.

A Dad is a Hero

A dad is someone who
holds you when you cry,
scolds you when you break the rules,
shines with pride when you succeed,
and has faith in you even when you fail…

A Dad is a Hero

~ Family ~

I had the pleasure to photograph the Solin family, they are so adorable and the entire crew is full of talent.  The two young girls are full of personality and spunk, they sing and dance.  The little man plays the drums, Dad sings and writes music.  Mom is a Sisterlock Consultant & massage therapist….hands with many talents.  It was cold, sunny, but we got it down.

~ Swansboro Marching Band Parents ~

Happy Friday All ~ I’ve had a few parents email me asking how they can pre-pay for their 2013 Swansboro Marching Band Portraits and take advantage of the wonderful “Pre-Paid Incentives”. I’ve tried to make the process as seamless as possible this year.

After I have received your information, I will send you an email with my digital booking proposal which contains the (6 portrait package) options. You can select your package and pay online. Have your child bring a copy of the printed receipt the day of the shoot (October 8th).

Don’t hesitate to call or email if you have any questions, I’m here to provide a wonderful service to you all.

~ Unconditional Love ~

Unconditional love is known as affection without any limitations this is the kind of love that Laura gives to her family and close friends.  It’s a blessing to witness such a person with a giving heart, and caring spirit.  I’m so happy that she’s part of my life; my life truly wouldn’t be the same without her in it.  It took her FOREVER to agree to sit for a portrait session with me, the “Forever” busy woman, putting all things before her but finally I got her in front of the camera.

I love you lady ~ unconditionally
