Cameron and Daniel Downtown Film Maternity Session

Cameron and Daniel Downtown Film Maternity Session
I officially love shooting sessions around the Capitol building downtown. I don't know what it is, but those sessions always are with clients who I'm like "YES. I like you. Let's hang out ASAP." Cameron and Daniel's maternity session was absolutely no different: there was lots of great conversation, laughing, and I'm officially extremely excited to photograph their ne[...]

Zach and Kasey’s Proposal

Zach and Kasey's Proposal
Do you recognize this sweet girl?! Kasey was our Fall 2015 intern and the whole NRP team adores her. Zach and Kasey are high school sweethearts, and have been dating for many years, waiting for this sweet moment, and I was so excited to be secretly capturing it all behind my camera! To make a long story short, let's just say that this proposal did not go as it was [...]

Ice Family Film Session

Ice Family Film Session
I got to know the Ice family at a session I did with them a couple of years ago. Most of my repeat clients are families with really little kids, but the Ice kids are a bit older - back then Emma was 15, Evan was 13. Seeing them two years later, at 17 and 15, was pretty cool. It definitely served as a reminder to me that older kids are changing and growing just as rapi[...]

After exchanging a few more texts and rearranging a few plans, I was heading to her apartment the very next morning. I was greeted with hot coffee and scones, a lit candle and [...]

Jessica and Adam Creedmoor, NC Film Wedding

Jessica and Adam Creedmoor, NC Film Wedding
Y'all. I sincerely thought about giving every person at Jessica and Adam's wedding an invitation to my wedding. They were fun, so excited for the new couple, and the best dancers I have ever seen. Jessica and Adam's beautiful wedding took place on a farm outside of Raleigh. It was the perfect combination of Adam and his roots, and Jessica's Colombian heritage. Ever[...]

Grace Almond Film Newborn Session

Grace Almond Film Newborn Session
Meeting baby Grace was a highlight of my week! I was able to do Margaret and Jonathan's maternity session a couple months prior, so I was excited about seeing the two of them holding their little one in their arms. I got one little glimpse of that sweet little head full of hair and almost fell over... SO adorable! Y'all have heard me say before: you never really kn[...]
