July 2016 Goals

July 2016 Goals
I'm feeling a little like summer is slipping away. And sometimes I feel hesitant to go outside and do fun things because it's hot, or because I have too much work to do, or because I don't have time. There's always an excuse, isn't there? I'm determined to not let July slip away. These monthly goals can get on my nerves sometimes... I try to always schedule the[...]

Guest Post: Will's Dad Favorites
I’ve so, so enjoyed becoming a father. As I mentioned before, I didn’t expect to have a little girl, but wow, what a treasure Milly is. As those of you with kids can attest, it’s been one of the most trying and challenging seasons this last year, but by far the most fulfilling and exciting. And we’re barely getting started! Milly’s birthday lands about halfway b[...]

Annie – Intern Experience

Annie - Intern Experience
I love this picture so much. Annie is in her element y'all - the bride's veil wrapped around her neck, bonding with this little flower girl and showing her a picture of her own daughter, Mara Kate on her phone. Annie is one of a kind and the NRP team has been overflowing with love for her from the moment we met her. To me, this picture describes Annie perfectly. She's[...]

Andi and Jason Film Waterfront Wedding

Andi and Jason Film Waterfront Wedding
As I mentioned in their engagement session post, Andi and Jason have such a deep love for their family. However, it was not until their wedding day that I got to see just how much these two mean to all of their family and friends as well. Every person in attendance that day held such a special place in the hearts of Andi and Jason, but equally you could see the impact[...]

Stevie Fitzpatrick’s (memorable) Birth

Stevie Fitzpatrick's (memorable) Birth
That sweet picture you see above will forever be filled with so much emotion for me. It will always, always take me back to the moment when I realized I missed it. I missed Stevie's birth! Let me back up a bit. Jenn and Ford are the sweetest couple you'll ever meet, and they have become our friends ever since photographing their wedding over 4 years ago. We've been[...]

Megan Ligon Promo Film Session

Megan Ligon Promo Film Session
Everything about our promo film was near and dear to my heart. Each aspect of each scene defined a part of our legacy as a team, but also as individuals in our own families. Every word that was spoken in our film rang even truer for me this year, as I have been planning to begin my own legacy. So you can imagine my excitement when I got to photograph my soon-to-be sis[...]

Thomas Family Promo Film Session

Thomas Family Promo Film Session
Lauren Jolly and I go back, y'all. We go all the way back to middle school... way before photography was ever a thing that she or I claimed. Back to rushed off campus lunches at Steve's, John Mayer obsessions, live concerts, and Duke games. It's been pure joy and such a blessing to walk beside friends throughout life, sometimes closely and sometimes from a distance[...]
