The magic of a photograph is the image it holds will never change. The people may grow, and the image may fade, but that moment in time? Photography says, “This stays.” 

Each day that passes your family is changing, growing. Taking time for regular photo sessions with your family means that you have moments to hold on to, long after your little ones are too big to be held.

The stories that come after the wedding deserve to be told with the same joy and authenticity as the day you said: “I do.”

Christa and Brian’s romantic Carolina Beach engagement session was relaxed and fun! We spent our session wandering the banks of the Cape Fear River and visiting Pleasure Island, an iconic stretch of the beach littered with beautiful pieces of driftwood.

The Noll family held their family portraits at their home. There is something so poignant about capturing your family in the home where you are raising your children. Seeing their growth measured against the backdrop of their day to day lives makes these images even more memorable. I especially love incorporating elements of your unique family history, like this beautiful old pick up truck passed through their family over the years.

Wilmington, North Carolina is picture perfect, but there is something special about the Cape Fear Marina for a romantic engagement session! Lauren and Nicolas enjoy date nights strolling through Downtown Wilmington and along the Cape, so we wanted to capture that part of their love story during their engagement session.

We recently had a family session with Summer who exceeded all of our expectations. It would be impossible to pick a favorite from our gallery. Summers personality fit right in with our family as if we had known her for years. We are already looking forward to our next Summer Adams Photography experience! I would recommend her to everyone!

She gave clear directions while taking photos and they turned out phenomenal! I highly recommend using Summer for any special occasion you want to be captured.

"Summer was absolutely amazing!"

THEY HAVE THE KINDEST THINGS TO SAY

Summer did an incredible job keeping our impatient kiddos entertained during our session. I am in awe of our photographs and I can’t wait until our next portrait session.
