Wesley Tackett | Senior Photo Shoot | Wrightsville Beach


April 17, 2023

Wesley… you CRUSHED your senior photo shoot! So HANDSOME and such an AWESOME young man!

I have known Wesley’s mom, Lea for years. We were roommates after college and have remained great friends ever since. When Lea reached out to me about taking Wesley’s senior pictures, I couldn’t believe it was already time for Wesley to graduate! Where does time go? I’ve photographed Wesley several times but I knew this was going to be a special, yet hard shoot for Lea. Her precious boy is graduating!

Wesley’s shoot started at the crack of dawn! Not sure how happy Wesley was about that, but hey… he had more important things to do that day so he was a GREAT sport! Wesley had hockey tickets that night and I wasn’t about to make him miss the game for a photo shoot!

We started his senior session at the beach. As the sun started to rise you could see the fog skimming the surface of the water. It was even misting, yet the lighting was beautiful. I couldn’t wait to freeze time for Lea by documenting this special moment. After spending time near the water we headed to a field to end the shoot.

Wesley…I’m so proud of you and the man that you’ve become. You have an amazing life ahead of you and there is no doubt you are destined to do great things! I’m excited you’ve decided to do the college transfer program at Wake Tech. CONGRATULATIONS!

Lea, your parents are looking down on you and are so proud of the woman that you are and the man that you have raised. I love you sweet friend! XOXO

Lea’s mother recently passed away. Wesley and his grandmother were very close so he took a special moment to honor his Mimi by tossing a white rose into the water.
