Elie Feldman | Class of 2020 | Wrightsville Beach | North Carolina


May 21, 2020

Elie came into this world with a purpose and on a mission! Her philosophy in life since she was a tiny little girl has always been…

“Me Do It My Big Girl Self!”

That determination is why she’s been successful with her schooling and community service projects.

Elie is graduating from Hoggard High School with honors and I am so PROUD of all that she has accomplished over the past 18 years.

To watch Elie grow into this beautiful, intelligent, and driven young woman has been one of the greatest blessings in my life.

Because we are living through a global pandemic my plans for Elie’s Senior Session had to change.

I have learned over the years that sometimes the best photo shoots are spur of the moment and aren’t over thought out. So that’s how I approach her shoot.

What I love most about these images is that they are a true representation of Elie and her natural beauty.

As you can see from the photographs where Elie decided to take a swim in the ocean we shared a lot of laughs and had a lot of FUN!

To stand behind the camera and photograph my incredibly beautiful and sweet daughter is truly a moment I will never forget.

Elie, I don’t know what the future holds but what I do know… is that you are going to make a difference in this world and that this world is a better place with YOU in it! I love you baby girl and there is no doubt in my mind that you are destined for great things.

Elie will be attending East Carolina University in the Fall. Go Pirates!
