On the shimmering shores of Topsail Beach, where pristine sand meets the turquoise hues of the ocean, lies a coastal paradise for capturing your family’s most cherished memories. As an acclaimed photographer at Topsail Beach, NC, I feel incredibly blessed to capture your life’s most precious moments here on these beautiful sands.




Family and Maternity Journey




Motherhood and raising little ones is a sacred journey - filled with breathtaking beauty and fierce love. Its tiny hands entwined in yours, sweet kisses that melt your heart, and laughter that fills your home. Motherhood isn’t always picture-perfect though. It’s also exhausting, messy, and chaotic, but amidst the chaos, there's a magic that only mothers know. I want to remind you of the beauty in the chaos, the fierce love that connects you, and the blessings that come with raising these precious little ones. My goal as a Topsail Beach, NC photographer is to capture your family just as you are, in all its messy, magnificent glory




From our very first consultation, I provide you with a luxurious experience. Every detail is carefully planned so you can sit back and relax. As a Topsail Island photographer, my goal is to take care of every step in the portrait-making process.

Topsail Island unfolds like a scene straight out of a romance novel. Soft, white sand

beaches stretch for miles, against the turquoise waters and dreamy sand dunes with

the most beautiful golden glow. These are just a few of the reasons I love Topsail

Beach for family portraits:

  • Beautiful and serene beaches that make you feel like you just stepped out of a Nicholas Sparks novel.
  • Sugar-soft sand with dreamy golden light.
  • Stunning sand dunes with sea oats waving in the breeze
  • Perfect backdrop to create the best memories running along the shore, digging your toes in the sand, and splashing in the ocean. We almost always end every session in the water!
  • Sunrise sessions offer seclusion wrapped in coastal serenity. Several preferred locations have been carefully scouted. Sessions are often shot at sunrise and sunset to align with the most beautiful golden lighting



The Authentic Artistic Vision


  • Our passion is to capture love and connection. We believe portraits should be pure, organic, and timeless allowing candid emotions, authentic beauty, and precious details to capture the focus.
  • We will help you fill your shelves with laughter and line your walls with love. Long after this season is over, we want you to remember this sacred season through timeless heirloom artwork.



At Michelle Popp Photography we promise to make your home more beautiful! We are firm believers in preserving memories in a tangible way. Our job is not complete until your portraits are hung on your wall or bound together in a beautiful heirloom album. All of your artwork is hand-crafted to last generations using conservation-grade materials so that you can be assured your portraits will be heirlooms you pass down to your children and their grandbabies.
