May 2016 Goals

May 2016 Goals
I have a new love for the month of May because of one reason: Milly. It's pretty sweet how the month that holds Mother's Day is the month I became a mother. Last year at this time I was waddling around, getting ready to launch the new NRP brand, with just 4 weeks to go until I gave birth and met my daughter (who I was convinced was a boy, by the way). I remember be[...]

Katie and Will Film Engagement

Katie and Will Film Engagement
Before I tell you how much I love this couple, we need to talk about their pup. Malley is one of the cutest, spunkiest little pups you ever did see. I love her energy and her sweet spirit so much! If you watched her walk through the woods like I did the day of Katie and Will's engagement session, I think you would agree that she should have her own theme music. She is[...]

Lisa and Dave’s Baby Announcement

Lisa and Dave's Baby Announcement
I won't ever forget the Saturday afternoon when Lisa and I were catching up at Starbucks over coffee. We had been there for two hours and I asked Lisa, "When do you think you and Dave want to start a family?" She stared at me with this big Lisa smile and said, "Do you want to know a secret?" They had found out two days prior to her telling me and we beamed with joy to[...]

Brynne and Geoff Pinehurst Film Wedding

Brynne and Geoff Pinehurst Film Wedding
When I think back to Brynne and Geoff's wedding, I think about the party! Y'all, these people know how to have fun. It is such a breath of fresh air to spend time with people who don't take life too seriously, you know? Brynne and Geoff love to joke and laugh together, and their family and friends love to do the same. Their wedding was meaningful and beautiful, and Br[...]

Little Rose in May Baby Shower

Little Rose in May Baby Shower
When I got an email from Betsy at Rebecca Rose Events asking me to come take some photos of Becca's baby shower, I was so excited! Mainly because Betsy told me that Becca had NO idea how lovely it would be. While Becca knew the shower was happening, the details were planned and executed in secret. The florals, the lemonade, the mac and cheese bar (Becca's craving was [...]

Becca and Jarrod Film Maternity Session

Becca and Jarrod Film Maternity Session
I love this woman to pieces, and now she is a mama! I have laughed and cried and celebrated with Becca throughout her pregnancy journey, and now her baby girl is finally here! Remember last year when baby Milly was #babyrayinmay for the longest time? We didn't know if she was a boy or girl, and the anticipation was so palpable. Her due date was May 27, and we thou[...]

Jenn and Ford Film Maternity Session

Jenn and Ford Film Maternity Session
There are some families who are just so beautiful it makes your heart ache. God's goodness is wrapped up in these little families. And it's a crime for these families to not have 18 babies because they are just so darn pretty. The Fitzpatricks are one of those families. Then there are some women who are just meant to have babies, you know? The ones who have the [...]

Kylan and Justin Brookgreen Gardens Film Wedding

Kylan and Justin Brookgreen Gardens Film Wedding
Brookgreen gardens was breathtaking, the weather was absolutely perfect, every detail was incredible, but I can honestly say that nothing compared to the beauty of Kylan and Justin when they saw one another for the first time. Kylan and Justin aren't showy, they aren't all about being the center of attention, and they aren't consumed with what everyone else thinks[...]

Kylan and Justin Film Rehearsal Dinner

Kylan and Justin Film Rehearsal Dinner
When I drove up to Kylan and Justin's rehearsal dinner, it was the perfect South Carolina evening. The sun was getting ready to set, the palm trees and spanish moss welcomed us, and guests were already enjoying warm conversations and cold drinks on the porch. I loved hearing the kindness and laughter all around me, and one thing I'll never forget is how much fun this [...]
