Hello, and welcome to LJ Images Photography.  I use the Art District Photography Studio  at 800 N. Church St. in Mount Olive, NC, and the home office is in Goldsboro NC. I specialize in studio and on location portaits. In 1992 my photographic journey started with action photography and video.  Now I love to shoot portraits and commercial photography.  Whatever your photography need is contact me and I will work with you to get those images that stir your emotions every time you look at them.  I don't just take pictures, I create Images that Inspire.  I have an inventory of over 100 different backgrounds for your photo sessions and a wardrobe of over 1000 items for senior, maternity, glamour, modeling, and boudoir photography for you to pick from if you desire!


Why do I do it?  To be honest, it makes me feel good, it makes me happy.  I have mastered the ability to capture a subjects emotions, and their inner and outer beauty, through my interaction with them, the click of a shutter, and a highly curated editing process.   When I show someone the image I have produced of them, and they light up like a light bulb, or start crying with joy, it fills me with sense of happiness that I cherish.  I don't just take pictures, I change lives through photography.


I am also an educator at heart.  You can find me teaching quarter photography classes to people of all levels at the Art District Photography Studio in Mount Olive.


If you want something special, then you deserve to be in front of my camera.


I am proud to be one of the few PPA Certified Professional Photographers in North Carolina and one of the few PPA Photographic Craftsman Degree Holders in the world.
