Olivia and Andrew Raleigh, NC Film Wedding Part 1
Whenever I photograph the wedding of a dear friend, I get extra excited. Whenever I photograph the wedding of another amazing photographer, I get extra nervous. Whenever I photograph the wedding of someone on the NRP Team, I get crazy nervous-excited. I had the joy and honor of photographing Olivia and Andrew's incredible wedding this past October. It was lovely [...]

Olivia and Andrew Raleigh, NC Rehearsal Dinner

Olivia and Andrew Raleigh, NC Rehearsal Dinner
I LOVE surprises. And the best thing about this Rehearsal and Dinner? Olivia had no idea I was coming! I was so sneaky arriving in the parking lot - I made sure I had all my equipment loaded up just right, and as I approached the rehearsal, I felt like I had to tiptoe across the grass. A few others saw me first, but then Olivia caught my eye. I knew she would be ex[...]

Shelton and Keegan Charlotte, NC Film Wedding

Shelton and Keegan Charlotte, NC Film Wedding
You might remember from their engagement session, but these two mean an awful lot to me. Shelton and I were neighbors while I was in college, and she was also my Bible Study leader. So getting to be a part of her wedding day, was truly such an honor for me. Every person in their wedding had different stories about the ways that both Shelton and Keegan had pointed t[...]

I photographed Felicity’s one year session and then her first birthday party, and now 2 years with this sw[...]

Carrington and Justin Pinehurst, NC Film Anniversary Session

Carrington and Justin Pinehurst, NC Film Anniversary Session
Anniversary sessions might be one of my favorite things, especially when it just so happens to be one of my very first friends in the wedding industry! Carrington and I met back in 2013 at a wedding when she had just begun working with Erin McLeans Events, and I was still training under Nancy to be a wedding photographer. We instantly clicked and have been friends eve[...]

Lucas Foley Film Newborn Session

Lucas Foley Film Newborn Session
We did the Foley's newborn session in their sweet home just a couple of weeks after their little dude Lucas was born, and it was such a special time! David and Megan were so incredibly smitten by their little dude, and just stood by and watched with big ole' grins as I photographed him during his solo shots. They seem to be loving the little details of newborn life, a[...]

November 2017 Goals

November 2017 Goals
I’m back from maternity leave! It’s hard to believe this time has come and gone. As a working mama, there are so many emotions that come along with coming back to work. It’s easy for the enemy to whisper how hard it is, and to quickly feel anxious and overwhelmed. But I’m choosing to focus on every blessing I have in order to finish this year strong, as a mama and as [...]
