The Gonthier Family // Wrightsville Beach Photographer

This family is the model for the kind of work I want to do this year. They are not styled, because you don’t style three boys, you just thank your stars that three boys showed up and allowed you to photograph them.

They aren’t posed. Instead they just let me see them, in all their vulnerability, and they loved hard, with a love that is unabashed, unashamed, unbridled.

This is how their life as a family looks. They are lucky to have each other, and I was lucky to get to bear witness to it.
