Shepherd Duffy Film Newborn Session

Shepherd Duffy Film Newborn Session
Sometimes, my heart just wants to explode when I'm doing a session. It's usually the case when, A) the indoor light is stunning; B) a sleepy newborn is involved, and/or C) there's a big family pet present for the photos. All of the above applied in the Duffy's session. Needless to say, on a scale of 1-10, 10 being over the moon excited, I was a 14. Lauren and Patri[...]

Fall Mini Session Recap
I'm just going to level with you. I love, love, love mini-sessions. They for real have my heart. So many awesome families packed into one intensive morning - planned around the most gorgeous light of the day - husband by my side to keep me on task and on track as far as the time goes.

Merrimon-Wynne Christmas

Merrimon-Wynne Christmas
Whether it's your first Christmas together or your twentieth, decorating for Christmas is such a joyful time. Christmas music, a blazing fire and warm cups of hot chocolate is what I will always remember about decorating our house for Christmas.

They feel like old friends that I've known for a long time, even though we've just met. They are down to earth, warm, and not afraid to laugh and have fun together. They love each other. I know that sounds simple, but i[...]

You guys. This couple. I can't tell you how much I adore them. Chris and Toni are the owners of Heartstone Films, a videography company here in Raleigh that we love to work with often.

Kasey – Internship Experience

Kasey - Internship Experience
The past three months spent interning at NRP have taught me so much more than I had imagined they would. I went into this internship hoping to gain guidance about photography, entrepreneurship, and organization, and I have gained that and so much more. These three months have fostered incredible friendships, tested my patience, inspired me, given me tears of joy and m[...]

Y'all know my friends, Baker and Megan? You know - I met them as clients, did their engagement session, bridal portraits, and wedding... introduced my husband to them and now we hang all the time? Yeah they're awesome and we love them, and they are having a baby! When I found out Megan was pregnant, I seriously had a hard time containing my excitement. I was equall[...]
