Oh, I love these two! When I first joined the NRP team in January I was so excited to learn from Callie.

The home belonged to an older couple, merely an acquaintance for me, but the second I walked into their home and looked around I felt like I knew them just a little more.

Oh my goodness y'all. Wade. This little dude... ask his parents and my husband, I was ready to take him home. The DeMarco family session made my little heart explode, partly because Wade was such a smiley little tank and so fun to photograph, and partly because he reached for me mid-way through the session and I got to hold him for a few minutes and he totally cuddled[...]
