Shelton and Keegan Charlotte Film Engagement Session

Shelton and Keegan Charlotte Film Engagement Session
Shelton is one of my dearest friends. She was my Bible study leader, College Life leader, and neighbor in college! We have walked through countless seasons together, celebrated so many fun moments, and prayed through some difficult times. I remember very clearly when she first started bringing Keegan's name up; he was a Young Life leader in Georgia and they had met at[...]

Welcome Lyndon Ray: A Legacy Film

Welcome Lyndon Ray: A Legacy Film
It's not lost on me that having these moments captured is a rare treasure. I can only imagine watching this film again when the girls are older, full of shared memories and the close bond that only sisters share. The fact that Milly almost always said "baby sister" when we asked "What is in mama's belly?" is the sweetest, because it's like she knew when all of us didn[...]

Wheaton Family Raleigh, NC Film Session

Wheaton Family Raleigh, NC Film Session
Goodness do I love this little family! Chris and Toni are dear friends of ours, and they are incredible videographers (check out their work, but grab a tissue first: Heart Stone Films and Portico Pictures)! I photographed their sweet maternity session, the birth of their baby boy Elijah, and his newborn session, and to see them now makes me all kinds of happy. Fir[...]

Tash Sall Film Newborn Session
NRP loves the Sall family! It all started when Nancy and Will photographed English and Will's wedding several years ago (Robert and I were there manning the photo box, too!) Since then, we've had the privilege of walking alongside the Sall's in life and in photography, seeing their family grow, doing family and newborn sessions, and keeping in touch along the way in [...]

Ashley and Brian Mims House Film Wedding

Ashley and Brian Mims House Film Wedding
Oh happy day! If I had to describe this wedding in one phrase, it would be "Southern hospitality meets joyful wedding celebration." Just like their engagement session, Ashley and Brian's put a lot of time and effort into making sure that their wedding day would be unique to their love and story. The whole day was beautifully styled and planned around the things that t[...]

Callie and Jamie Film Anniversary Session

Callie and Jamie Film Anniversary Session
Hi there! Below is a session that means a whole lot to me. Over the Fourth of July, Andrew and I headed to the beach with Callie and Jamie, and while there I did a little anniversary session for the two of them and their little pups! Callie and I have spent a lot of time together over the last 2 and a half years. She was the primary person to train me, we have gone on[...]

Hudson and Jan Columbia, SC Film Wedding

Hudson and Jan Columbia, SC Film Wedding
Hudson and Jan have such a beautiful story. After losing loved ones, they were gifted with a second chance at love. They met through their daughters, who were in Sunday School together and decided to set their parents up after talking on a girls weekend. So naturally they knew the new siblings would all get along, but what was even sweeter was how excited all of their[...]
