Preserving Your Family's Memories ....

with Photographic Excellence



  Your family is changing so fast, isn't it? Your children are growing up, and becoming more like adults every day.  Or perhaps your children are already grown and have kids of their own, than it is your grandchildren that are maturing at lightning speed.   Don't you wish you could just "freeze time" and hold these special moments forever.  A family portrait is a successful attempt to do just that, by stopping the clock you attain a priceless commodity.  After all, memories are the most valuable thing that we own. 

    Your family snapshot during the holidays may capture the moment but may not be the ideal photograph to hang on your wall.  This is not the case if you choose a talented and experienced professional photographer, such as John Gregory.  A family portrait created by John Gregory Photography captures your family's true bonds and relationships, but also does so in a way that you'd be proud to display openly in your home for the rest of your life. 

     If you're like most people, when you think of a PROFESSIONAL family portrait, you think of all of you gathered in front of a "painted background" in a photography studio, posed unnaturally, and all saying "cheese" as the photographer snaps the picture. Now, is that something any family will cherish for a lifetime? Probably not. Yes, it may capture the whole family together, but it will never capture your family relationships - your family's love.

    Picture instead: All of you gathered in your favorite room in your home. Or outside on the new deck you just had built.  Or in your backyard by the pine trees that give your yard so much character.  Or our most popular option, which is a no brainer, for our out of town visitors, and many locals as well, is on the beach!  All of you are dressed in clothes that are coordinated, minus shoes! 

     In fact, John specializes in on location beach photography.  He has been shooting the Southeast North Carolina beaches since 1969, with all that experience he is guaranteed to know how to photograph on the beach and achieve the most pleasing results.  He takes into account many variables from the tide, wind conditions, lighting, the moon, etc… John is determined to please his clients by producing the most wonderful portraits that they will love and cherish for years to come.  He often shoots at several undisclosed locations,  within close proximity of his Carolina Beach Studio, that have contributed in producing undeniably stunning portraits, and very happy clients.

   John Gregory believes every single photograph that he produces must be a masterpiece.  Each portrait is custom cropped, color enhanced, and retouched as needed.  Unlike many photographers, he does not charge any additional fees for touch up work such as glare in glasses, flyaway hair,  skin blemishes, etc…, He strives to achieve portraits that will be the finest quality and therefore often spends much more time in the digital processing stage than the actual picture taking.
