Playing in the sand, blowing bubbles, and running in circles are just a few of my favorite things I get to do during family photo sessions. Why would I not if it produces these smiles? What you can’t see is the big smile on my face! Spending a warm summer evening at Wrightsville Beach with this sweet family was just what I needed this week.

The Coles are very special as I have been photographing them since their son was almost two years old. It is a special detail about my job that I treasure; watching families grow and seeing these adorable children develop such independent, funny personalities. I always have a great time with this smiley group and this was no exception.

Two of my favorite children’s portraits to date. He is such a ham, if you could not tell already, and she is a sweet, yet, sassy lady.

Sometimes, well, after the first ten minutes of a portrait session it is virtually impossible to get everyone to look at the camera at the same time. However, these are some of my favorites. Perfection is in the moments themselves.
