Wilcox Family | Wilmington NC Ocean Isle Beach NC Family Photographer

I cannot begin to tell you the times I’ve had moms to mention the regrets of not getting more photos of their family throughout the years. I always then ask them why, and of course  I always get the typical response of “I hate being in pictures”. Yes, as moms we are so critical of ourselves. Think we still have too much baby weight, hair needs some attention, and then what on Earth will I wear?!?! But let me ask you this, how will your kids remember their mom when they were young?

What did she look like? Do you know what your mom looked like back then?

As much as you hate being in those photos, just think of how cherished those family photos will be to your kids one day, to your grandkids, and so forth. I think back to my own mom. She didn’t like being in photos either. And I have no clue as to why not, she was a beautician and always looked her best! But one of my cherished photos is of her holding me when I was a baby with gorgeous 80′s hair, and long red fingernails! She was beautiful (and still is)! I am too guilty of this as well. I HAVE to get into more photos with my kids, and not just in iPhone selfies!

Here are a few from a recent family session that was just like another fun family outing, and the photographer got to tag along. Some of these are just priceless as you can see the love that this sweet little girl has for her mommie and daddy. So full of smiles and laughter. She had us all tearing up from laughing so hard. SO thankful I was there to capture it all.


Don’t let these precious years pass by all too quickly. Contact us today to schedule your family session.

We will talk about ideas, what to wear, and I promise to make you look your best!

This Kind of Love… | NC Wedding Engagement Photographer Wilmington NC, Southport NC, Ocean Isle Beach, NC

To me, when you find that one person you are suppose to spend the rest of your life with, everything else in your world just seems to fall into place. That person ends up becoming not only your mate in life, but they become your best friend, your confidant, and most importantly your ROCK! Being together as a couple builds you up and makes you both a stronger person. They are there to catch you when you fall, and to help pick up your million little pieces when it seems life has thrown you a curve ball which breaks you apart. That kind of love is very rare and when you find it, it should be held onto forever and cherished. I absolutely loved photographing this sweet, loving couple who are tying the knot this May. She has a smile that brightens the room, and they have a chemistry together that you can’t help but to be drawn to. Here are just a few images of an afternoon spent with them, just being themselves and me getting to capture it all with my lens.



“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:11-13

Prince Christopher | Fairmont, Lumberton, Maxton NC Newborn Photographer

This little prince came to see me and at first look he just blew me away! All that hair, and gracious… seeing him grow over the past few weeks, his hair hasn’t stopped growing either! He definitely was a cutie and only had to stop to get his tummy full just once! Arriving just before Valentine’s day, mom said this was her best Valentine’s Day yet, as there is a new man in her life!  ;) -Sorry Dad!


Dad had nick-named his son “Prince” before he was born, so mom requested a shot of her little man in a crown fit for little prince!
