I recently had the pleasure of photographing another Wrightsville Beach home designed by Michael Ross Kersting of Kersting Architecture. Michael hired me to photograph the home, as he was submitting it for consideration for the George Matsumoto Prize. This is an award sponsored by North Carolina Modernist Houses. I am happy to say, and congratulations go out to Michael and his firm, that the home took First Place, Peoples Choice Award.

For those who live on Wrightsville Beach or walk the Loop, you’ve passed this home from construction to finish. Its sleek and beautiful. I have included some of the photos from the days shoot and hope you enjoy and appreciate its many design features.

For this months issue of  Salt Magazine,  I got to visit and photograph the Ward home, nestled on Harbor Island, overlooking Banks Channel. While there I was fortunate to meet the two ladies of the house, Alisa, and her engaging daughter, Lily.  The home is a wonderful, cheerfully decorated Wrightsville Beach house and you can tell that Lily and her brother Bennett, are the star inhabitants!

Marisa, who besides being a full time Mom to children Bennett and Lily, ages 7 and 4 respectively, wife of  husband Chris, and manager of the home, also makes really cool jewelry. Busy woman. Her company is called Gypsy*Lew and her designs are available at several boutique stores in Wilmington, Wrightsville Beach, Raleigh and Greenville, SC. You an also learn more about her business on her Facebook page at Gypsy*Lew. Check it out. Below you can view some of the photos from the days shoot. If you haven’t already done so, go out and get a copy of Salt and turn to the Story Of A House feature and read the full article by the ever talented Ashley Wahl. You won’t be sorry. Enjoy.
