Family Portraits at Wrightsville Beach- NC Family Photographer
I was looking through my blog post, and realized I never really blogged about this family session. Well.. here’s to a new introduction to this session that happened a wee while back.
This family portrait was pretty memorable. It’s a special one because of the people I got to photograph. The Johnson family won my services during a Make A Wish Wine Women and Shoes auction that was held here in Wilmington, NC with the Make a Wish Eastern NC division. I was lucky enough to participate in the event as a photographer and also a volunteer. Make a Wish is an incredible organization and I’m a huge fan of their work and their history. If you know me, you know that I love Saint Judes, the Progeria Foundation and Make a Wish. So, it was definitely something I could scratch off the bucket list for doing.
The Johnson family won and Mrs. Johnson is actually the president of the Eastern division. She had lost the voucher and we were finally able to connect with one another after a year. Yes, a year. She had expressed that it was lost and that they didn’t know how to get it claimed, so she was hoping I would still honor it. Of course.. I did! The family had gone through some hardships that year with her husbands health, and it was completely understandable that life was getting in the way of our session.
We finally were able to schedule our family portrait session later on in the summer. The family was dressed to impress, they had several outfits and were extremely colorful. All the girls were very excited to be at the beach since they had traveled from Raleigh to Wrightsville Beach. They were a very united family, and very fun. We laughed and giggle during our shoot, and I got some pretty magical moments captured. They were lots of fun, and definitely balls of energy. I definitely got my work out with this crew.
