The Dock

This dock and I have a love-hate relationship. The past four summers we have taken our family picture on this dock as the sun is setting. To get all of us showered, dressed and then head out into the blazing hot sun to try to get everyone to look at the camera and SMILE is nearly impossible. We end up taking hundreds of pictures and only get a couple good ones in the process. However, I so appreciate the memories and tradition of the dock. We are able to look back and compare the pictures on the dock and see how quickly the kids grow and change. All too soon it will be easy to get everyone to smile so I choose to enjoy the crazy process we go through to get these pictures while they are young. Here are some of my favorites from this year!



  1. glad to see you all dressed up and pretty, I was seriously skerd of those ugly shots on Holly”s blog!

  2. You must be near where Jane and Craig Lea have a beach house at ocean isle..The view looks almost the same as their house. It is all the way down the end of OIB turning right then going through the guard gate. The houses on the right that are on the water way..Beautiful!

  3. They tuned out great!
