The January-February winter edition of Salt Magazine has finally hit the stands and if you haven’t had a chance to pick one up, then put it on your list of things to do. It is a great issue and one you won’t want to miss. If you can’t get one in print, then be sure to go to the web site for Salt Magazine and read it online. You won’t be disappointed.

I once again got to team up with the ever talented Ashley Wahl, and photograph the Weaver farm in Rocky Point. The farm is called Lucky Dog Farm and consists of 10 acres, a quaint bark sided cottage, guest house, 3 horses, 2 burros and a trio of Norwich terriers. It is just a bucolic place that evolved when Jo Weaver rescued some abused horses that were confiscated from a farm in Dunn, NC. The Weavers had moved out to their refuge in the country and when the plight of the horses became clear, they built a stable and all of a sudden, they were horse people. Ashley tells the whole story in the article, and a wonderful story it is, so don’t pass up a chance to read it.  Meanwhile,  I have included some photos from the shoot and you can get an idea of the lifestyle of Lucky Dog Farm and meet Dash, Sam, Piper and the burros, Thomas and Luke.

I’ve had a busy week working for Karen Schwartz, broker with Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Realty. This home is in the Waterford subdivision in Brunswick County, just over the Cape Fear River from downtown Wilmington. It is a well appointed home on a canal. You may contact Karen through her web site or follow @agentkaren on Twitter. You may see other photos on the tour link created for 1016 Ginger Lily Way. Here are a few photos from the shoot.

 

 

 

This is another home featured by Karen Schwartz, broker with Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Realty. It is a pleasure to work with Karen. She is a marketing savvy agent who understands the value of hiring a professional photographer to showcase her listings and really provides her clients with the dedication and aggressiveness it takes to sell homes in the current market environment. You can learn more about Karen at her Living by the Coast web site or by following @agentkaren on Twitter. The following photos are some choices from the days shoot. See the virtual tour I created for 1004 Sierra Ct.  If you are looking for a home in the Wilmington/Brunswick County area, give Karen a shout.

 

I had the most enjoyable session in the park last week end with Barry and Chrissy and their two wonderful children, Ellie and Noah. I was excited to do this session as I have photographed Ellie since she was two and haven’t had the chance to spend much time with Noah. Plus it was the first chance I had to have them all together in front of the lens. It was Granddad’s idea, and a good one at that! It was so much fun. The weather was beautiful, the setting in Hugh McCrae Park was perfect and the kids were full of energy. I had a blast and here are just a few of the images from the afternoon. Thank You Barry, Chrissy, Ellie and Noah. You made my job easy!

 

I recently photographed a beautifully appointed town home in the neighborhood of Brunswick Forest, located in Leland, NC. Leland is situated across the river from the city of Wilmington, NC. I was hired by top Realtor, Karen Schwartz, of Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Advantage. I have posted a few images of the interior of the town home below and if you want to see the complete shoot you can view a complete property tour by clicking here.
