They have a condo across the hall from us and we all just HANG OUT till the wee hours of the morning. So I was more than happy to do this photoshoot with them.

Mermaids exist in Atlantic Beach, North Carolina!

These three mermaids had a blast during their mermaid photoshoot. These photos are treasures for the girls and their families and an experience they will never forget! If you want to add a mermaid tail to your shoot, make sure you talk about it to me before so I can bring the right tails and that we allow plenty of time to get your daughter changed. It takes a while to get into the tails and it is really hard to move around in them. But it is worth the effort as these works of art will be gorgeous on your living room wall.

The dad of this family is a North Carolina native who grew up going to Atlantic Beach. He moved out to the midwest and met his wife and her 2 boys but made sure to bring them back to the Crystal Coast. We did this photoshoot on the day the bought a 2 week timeshare at A Place At The Beach.

Lori looks gorgeous, doesn’t she??? She had her hair and makeup professionally done. It makes a big difference, especially for beach photos where makeup can melt off easily. A professional application goes a long way in heat and humidity. Contact me for referrals.

Every other year, Grandma and Grandpa rent the same beach house in Emerald Isle to get their kids and grandkids under one roof for a week. For the past two years, they have hired me as their photographer.

The photos are priceless.

I even broke out the mermaid tails for the girls for this one.

Her hair is to die for. But so his her face. I shot this by the pool in my subdivision in Cary, NC. The background was a nasty pond and overgrown woods, but the light here is perfect and I knew that with the right camera settings I could make the shot look magical.

I photograph in Cary, Apex, Holly Springs, Morrisville and Raleigh in the Triangle area. I also photograph at the beach on the Crystal Coast/Carteret County.

This is my best friend and her family at the Oceanana Pier in Atlantic Beach, NC. The Pier is a popular spot for photos because it adds an architectural element and cool colors to contrast with the ocean. This was a windy day and the ocean was really kicking up. This made for a really great background.

I photograph in Atlantic Beach, Pine Knolls Shores and Emerald Isle on the beaches of the glorious Crystal Coast. I also photograph in Morehead City, Newport and Beaufort along the Intracoastal Waterway.
