Family on Beach

Back in August me and my boys decided to do a North Topsail NC Family Day.  Portraits on the beach sounded like a great idea.  We wanted to get there early, in time to get that ‘sweet light‘ of day, when portraits are perfect, blemishes and redness tend to disappear.  …

Bride and Groom

A Lake Gaston Wedding!  A lovely couple, a small intimate wedding filled with love and family.  The lake side was the perfect place to have the ceremony.  The wind was blowing, the weather was cool, but nowhere near cold.  The colors of fall were everywhere making it a scene that …

A beautiful day for Maddison and Her Daddy to have a family session done at the beach.  Maddison and her Daddy were full of smiles this day.  I have to say that I am the proud Mom and Grandma of these two.  Derek is my son and this little beauty …

Brothers

My Sons It’s not often that I get all of My Sons together at one time. I think the last time was about 6 years ago, but then it happened!  This past August they were all finally at home together.  They were all here, so we decided on a family …

Stuffed Squash Blossoms

Stuffed Squash Blossoms (this was a first for me) This years garden seems to be producing an abundance of squash.  I planted Yellow Crookneck, and let me tell you, it grows well, and produces plenty.  We have eat squash and onions until it’s about to run out of our ears.  …

Tobacco Sheets

Memories of the Old Tobacco Warehouse I was sitting here today thinking of a time when the Tobacco Warehouse was a place of interest. We would work all year planting, suckering, cropping, looping, curing, and packing the tobacco. Getting it ready to take to the tobacco warehouse where it would …

Senior Class of 2015, EDHS

I had the privilege of photographing Sylveonna, a Class of 2015 EDHS graduate.  If you know anything at all about Duplin County, NC and East Duplin High School, you know that this year’s high school class was one of the largest we’ve had for a long time.  190 graduating seniors, …

Trash on the Shore

One day we were at the lake and there was this trash just laying there.  Someone had obviously thrown it out.  Well, I saw the colors of the bag against the grey mud and thought about whether or not I could make the trash an actual thing of interest.  The …

Clothes pin

Clothes pins, they bring back so many memories and they are good for so many things.  I love to hang out laundry, nothing smells better than sun dried sheets and towels!  But clothes pins can be used to close potato chip bags too.  lol  Can you think of any really …

Blue Eyes

This little guy, with these beautiful Blue Eyes, is some kind of special to me.  There is this one thing about him that just makes me smile and laugh out loud…that is his eyes.  They are this shade of blue that I have only seen on two other people.  One …

Poinsettia

In this image we can see that the Poinsettia Bleed Too.  I took a macro filter and attached it to my camera.  Then as I was photographing the flower I broke the leaf.  This is what came from the plant.  I loved this little drop of liquid.  It’s pristine whiteness …

Fishing Day

On my way to Virginia for a wedding I came across this fishing day scene.  This man was fishing and I was looking for something inspiring to photograph.  The two moments went hand in hand perfectly.  I wish I knew who it was so I could send him a copy …

Winding Stairs_Cliffs of the Neuse_NC_3817

‘They’ say a day exploring is better than a good day at home.  Well, ‘they’ really don’t, I made that up.  As you can see, I’m not so great at making up sayings.  That’s ok…at least I can try, then move on when the saying fails miserably.  When I woke …

Child Photography

Levi, what a wonderful little boy to photograph.  Child Photography is not my specialty, but how can you not be successful with a baby that looks like this? His Mom and Dad were totally up to a location shoot with Levi.  We headed off to the local park.  In the …

Old pictures

Defoid, the man who raised me and loved me.   So much I learned from my Daddy, so much that has given me part of who I am now as a photographer. Daddy,  I will never forget the long walks in the grass wet with dew.  The mornings, as the sun …

nclandscapephotographer

January 2011 saw a day that was mild and beautiful, and beach photos were in order.  Aren’t they always?  Southern Georgia had many days like that.  Days that I wondered if there was ever going to be a winter.  Well, after 2 years there, I can tell you … no, …

May 10, 2014, what a beautiful evening for a NC Wedding. The beauty of the day didn’t even come close to the beauty of the bride. Grace was stunning in her wedding gown, and Cole was most handsome in his beige 3 piece suit. Grace and Cole are a couple …
