Family Photo Shoot | Wrightsville Beach | North Carolina


July 10, 2020

I was excited when I received a text from Allison Smith asking if I was available for an extended family photo shoot. Family photo shoots are always exciting especially when cousins are involved!

I had the pleasure two years ago of photographing Allison and Patrick’s children, Sloan and Cooper, and her brother Stephen and his wife Elizabeth’s children, Tyler and Gunter.

These beautiful kids have grown up so much in the past two years! 

It was great to meet Allison’s other brother Tripp and his wife Caroline and their two children, Evelyn and Carl, who were here visiting from Charlotte. It was so much fun to watch how close these cousins are and how much they genuinely enjoy each other’s company!

The weather was looking a little iffy that June evening, but despite the 80% chance of rain we decided to go for it. I’m SO glad that we did! 

We caravanned by boat over to Masonboro Island and what an adventure we had!

That night the sky was filled with the Saharan dust cloud. The dust cloud created a beautiful milky white background for these gorgeous families.  

A special thanks to the Smith and Beacham families for asking me to capture this special moment in time! I had a BLAST spending the evening photographing all of you on Masonboro Island.
