Almond Family Film Session

Almond Family Film Session
I met Margaret, Jonathan and their sweet little princess Grace at Hillridge Farms right as Fall was starting. It was the first week that Hillridge had their pumpkin patch open, and even though we were still living that mid-summer NC heat, it just felt like a new season was in the air. I hadn't seen them or talked much to them since Grace's newborn session last year ([...]

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[...]

Kelley Family Raleigh, NC Film Session

Kelley Family Raleigh, NC Film Session
This sweet family competes for the record in how many sessions we've done together! It all started a couple of years ago (how is that even possible!?) at Amelia and Andrew’s maternity session, then we did Amelia’s baby shower, and then Felicity’s newborn photos. 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[...]
