Eight granddaughters and one grandson………together…….forever

It doesn’t get much better………..

I made this portrait about 8 or 9 year ago on the beach in the Whalehead section of Corolla in the Outer Banks, imagine what has happened to everyone in this image since then, and how everyone has grown and changed, yet this portrait remains unchanged, a moment in 11 lives saved forever………..11 stories that continue to be told………

Is your Business Portrait or Headshot Super?

As a professional you know first impressions count, but does your business portrait or headshot really make a great first impression?

or is it just blahhhhhh?………was it taken 4 or more years ago?………was it taken on a cell phone?

Take a look at your current photo. Does it reflect who you are as a professional or does it reflect a hobby or outside interest? A good business portrait flatters but doesn’t mislead. Eventually you’ll meet some of your customers in person and the inevitable disconnect between Photoshop and life will be jarring.

The goal of your headshot or your teams business portrait is to reflect how you will look when you meet a client, not how you looked at that killer party in Key West four years ago.

We all know that you never get a 2nd chance to make a great 1st impression, and many times the image you project with your photo is the first and maybe only chance you get.

Having a new business portrait made of your group or yourself is easy and fun.

For the convenience of my clients I offer a complete portable portrait studio that can be set-up at your location in about 20 minutes. The set-up includes a backdrop (if necessary), full studio lighting, and a laptop that will allow you to instantly review the images as they are being captured.

Outer Banks Photographers and Dogs

Outer Banks Photographers and Dogs ( and cats and birds and…………. )

I just ran across this beach portrait of “Tank” the dog taken a couple of summers ago in Corolla, NC and just had to share it again. Isn’t he the coolest!

photographers-in-the-outer-banksI work with my clients pets all of the time, after all, they are part of the family aren’t they.

In the past two days I’ve scheduled beach portraits in the Outer Banks with two large families that will both be including their pets. Both families will be including two dogs and about 35 people! One is going to be up on the 4 wheel drive beach in Carova, and the other is going to be in Hatteras…………I can’t wait, these are both going to be tons of fun!

Not all Outer Banks photographers work with pets, and not all will venture up in the 4 wheel drive area. So if you or some one you know is interested in a beautiful portrait of their large family which includes their pets, you know who to call or refer them to, especially if you or they are going to be Carova or Swan Beach in the 4 wheel drive area.

and on another note

I’ve been big into smoothies lately, 1) to help fuel and recover from my running habit, and 2), simply because I like them :-)

Here’s one I made this morning, a banana nut smoothie , which was a tad more fun drinking from my favorite Guinness glass.

Check out  the recipe below from the Realistic Nutritionist blog.

Serves 1.
Prep time: >5 minutes


  • 1 banana
  • 2 tablespoons oats (I used quick-cooking)
  • 1 tablespoon Bob’s Red Mill almond meal
  • 1 cup skim milk
  • 2 tablespoons non-fat Chobani Greek yogurt
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
  • 1 tablespoon honey


  1. Place the banana, oats, almond meal, milk, greek yogurt, cinnamon, honey and about 1 1/2 tablespoons walnuts in the blender. Blend until completely smooth.
  2. Pour the smoothie into a jar and garnish with crushed walnuts and a few banana slices.


That’s all for now, see you next time!

Outer Banks Photographers & Beautiful Large Family Groups

Outer Banks Photographers & Beautiful Large Family Groups 

That’s one of the main reasons my clients hire me over other Outer Banks photographers

………..beautifully crafted organic family group portraits……..done right…….every time!

destination wedding dress

Many times this is the the first time entire families have been able to get together for several years, and for some it may be the last…………they want to commemorate this important occasion with a special portrait!

Creating beautiful family portraits properly takes many, many years experience ( I’ve been working with families for over 30 years! )

outer banks family photographer

Don’t trust your families memories to just anyone…… very careful when selecting your photographer…….make sure that they show plenty of family portraits and not just cute little kids on the beach……….and make sure that they show more portraits than weddings (most “wedding photographers” are not good portrait photographers ).
