Millie Morales Film Newborn Session

Millie Morales Film Newborn Session
This family - the Morales family - holds some sentimental value for me as a photographer. See that adorable little girl (now big sister) in these photos? That's Daphne, and she was the very first newborn I ever photographed. I remember being nervous doing Daphne's newborn session - it was my very first one and I had crazy butterflies as I was getting started, but I re[...]

October Mini Sessions: Day 2

October Mini Sessions: Day 2
We did something for October mini-sessions that we've never tried before, and we decided we'll definitely do it again should the opportunity come up: we added a Day 2 to make it a weekend event, and we switched up the time on the second day to do afternoon mini-sessions. This worked really, really well for families who weren't loving the whole "morning" idea, so I thi[...]

October Mini Sessions: Day 1

October Mini Sessions: Day 1
October mini sessions were crazy in the best kind of way! The weather was on point, the weekend was jam packed, and, as it usually works out, all of my families were a blast to work with. We had a TON of two year olds this time, which meant I was really and truly working for those money shots (ha!) Thankfully, I had our fantastic Fall intern, Cassie right beside me[...]

Behind the Scenes: October Mini Sessions

Behind the Scenes: October Mini Sessions
Maybe you're brand new to the concept of mini-sessions, and you're not quite sure how it all works and whether or not it'd be a good fit for your family. In a nutshell, mini-sessions are a lot of quick family sessions, back to back, in one single location. Here are a few "Behind the Scenes" tidbits and glimpses to give you an idea of how I make a whirlwind of 20 minut[...]

Wyatt Medlin Film Newborn Session

Wyatt Medlin Film Newborn Session
Sweet little Wyatt came about a month early, right on Christmas Eve. It felt like I had just done Cameron and Daniel's maternity session, so I was pretty surprised to get the email from them letting me know their little dude had arrived, and that everyone was happy and healthy. I arrived at their home to photograph their newborn session in the first few days of Januar[...]

Best of 2016 : Families

Best of 2016 : Families
2016 was an amazing year for NRP Families and NRP Newborns! We met many new faces and also had the privilege of seeing the same sweet faces come back again... not just clients at this point, but friends. It's the highest compliment to us at NRP when we do see those same faces over and over again, and our goal is that our work reflect just how much we treasure those un[...]

Emma Lyerly Film Newborn Session

Emma Lyerly Film Newborn Session
I originally met Ashley and Dustin back in August for their film maternity session, and I was so thankful to be able to see them again and meet their beautiful baby girl, Emma, just a few months later at her newborn session. It's always so wonderful to meet a couple before and again after their baby is born. I get to see them right in the middle of the anticipation[...]

The Fialka's were back for round two of mini-sessions (they were a part of 2015 mini's), and it was so wonderful to see them again in Portico Picture's all white studio space!
