Nancy Ray Favorites-0018

I have loved the tradition of doing photo swaps with photographer friends of mine once a year. We’ve had several friends photograph us! (The Lannings, The Schultzes, Caroline Joy, and now the Terhunes!) Every year I get on the other side of the camera, I learn what every couple goes through when I photograph them: choosing an outfit, deciding on a hairstyle, finding a location, and most importantly – what makes me comfortable in front of the camera. It is such a valuable experience – watching and learning from other photographers: how they shoot, relate with their clients, and how they capture their subjects & light.

This year, Graham and Samantha Terhune, our sweet friends from Chapel Hill, agreed to do an all-film session swap! We asked them to take casual photos of us around Fearrington Village when we stayed there to celebrate our 5th Anniversary in June. I couldn’t be happier with these sweet film images. Thank you, Graham and Sam for these priceless memories!

I photographed their sweet maternity session this week, fulfilling my end of the swap. Can’t wait to share those images in a few weeks! And I especially can’t wait to meet Baby T in December.

And to my sweet husband of 5+ years… I’m excited to eat ice cream with you the rest of my life. I love you!

nice photography and the couple is really looking great.

We do the same thing each year for our anniversary! It’s SO important to get behind the camera so that we can better relate to our clients. You guys are just too cute for words!! Happy Anniversary Nancy and Will!

I love that you do a photo swap session with friends, such a great idea.
