The D Family | Historic Wilmington NC Family Photographer

Historic downtown Wilmington is a treasure trove of textured urban backdrops and makes for a great location for family sessions. There are beautiful red brick walls, old yet classic colorful doors, the Cape Fear River as the sun sets, romantic alleys, gritty old buildings and more!

Most often my client families include young children and babies so it was a fun and refreshing experience to get to photograph this beautiful family with their older kids. During the session the mom told me that she has professional photos of her family done every year and enjoys updating their walls annually with their latest portraits. She said it was her way of making up for a lack of photos of her own childhood. They have had their photo sessions in many beautiful outdoor locations in the Wilmington NC area, but never in an urban setting. That’s when I suggested Historic Downtown.

What better way is there to decorate the walls of your home than with precious memories of the ones you love? Through the years their home walls have become a beautiful display of their evolving family for all to enjoy and I’m glad to have the honor of helping to add to their collection!
