Emily and Teresa Mother-Daughter Film Session

Emily and Teresa Mother-Daughter Film Session
It's not everyday that I get a request to shoot a grown up Mother-Daughter session, but when Emily reached out to let me know she wanted to gift her sweet mom Teresa with a session, just the two of them, I thought... why in the world not? The mother-daughter bond is truly something special, and I think it's so cool that Emily and Teresa wanted some classic, timeles[...]

September 2016 Goals

September 2016 Goals
September means rhythm. I am so excited to settle into routine and embrace fall a little too early, like I usually do. I can pretty much smell the pencil shavings and new binders and new planners. Summer is over, and a fresh new rhythm of school and work settles in, and I love it. I thrive in rhythm and routine. Yes, even though no one in our home attends school, I ge[...]

In August, the NRP extended team got together for a day of training, critiquing and growing as a team of photographers!

Just look at these two beaming with sheer joy! There was not one moment throughout this entire day when Becca and Tyler did not exude complete joy. From the moments of getting ready to the end of the night on the dance floor, they did not take the emotion and meaning of this day lightly. I mean, just look at Becca's radiant smile! Becca and Tyler were married on a bea[...]

I mean wasn't it just yesterday that I photographed Beth and Shawn's maternity session?! It definitely felt that way at Charlotte's newborn session because she surprised everyone by coming almost a few weeks early! Charlotte is truly a baby doll. She is such an itty bitty little thing, snug and warm and precious to hold. I literally could have spent the entire sess[...]

Margaret and Jonathan Film Maternity Session

Margaret and Jonathan Film Maternity Session
I met Margaret and Jonathan at Joyner Park for their maternity session in mid-July... we tried to beat the heat by starting really early, but it was so hot outside! They were definitely troopers as we walked the park with their two pups to find the best locations. Margaret and I went to high school together, but it had been years (maybe almost 10?!) since we'd seen[...]

Patrone Family Film Session

Patrone Family Film Session
I have some serious love for the Patrone family! Their wedding was one of the most unique weddings I've ever photographed, and to see them now with their sweet baby girl just lights up my heart. Could you think of a cuter name than Poppy? It is truly the perfect fit for her vibrant little personality! Just like us, the Patrones' firstborn was a little girl who look[...]

Marie and Wade Durham, NC Film Wedding
You guys, I wish I was a guest at this wedding. It's a rare thing for me to feel this way, but here are my reasons: This couple. I could forreall just hang out with them and be their friends. The food! The food was just so delicious. The bridal party. Yes, it's the largest bridal party I've ever photographed (almost 40 people). I was nervous, but by the end of [...]
