October Mini Sessions: Day 2

October Mini Sessions: Day 2
We did something for October mini-sessions that we've never tried before, and we decided we'll definitely do it again should the opportunity come up: we added a Day 2 to make it a weekend event, and we switched up the time on the second day to do afternoon mini-sessions. This worked really, really well for families who weren't loving the whole "morning" idea, so I thi[...]

October Mini Sessions: Day 1

October Mini Sessions: Day 1
October mini sessions were crazy in the best kind of way! The weather was on point, the weekend was jam packed, and, as it usually works out, all of my families were a blast to work with. We had a TON of two year olds this time, which meant I was really and truly working for those money shots (ha!) Thankfully, I had our fantastic Fall intern, Cassie right beside me[...]

Behind the Scenes: October Mini Sessions

Behind the Scenes: October Mini Sessions
Maybe you're brand new to the concept of mini-sessions, and you're not quite sure how it all works and whether or not it'd be a good fit for your family. In a nutshell, mini-sessions are a lot of quick family sessions, back to back, in one single location. Here are a few "Behind the Scenes" tidbits and glimpses to give you an idea of how I make a whirlwind of 20 minut[...]

Hawthorne Family Film Session

Hawthorne Family Film Session
This family holds a special place in my heart. Blake and my dear friend Amy both serve our country in the US Army as Helicopter Pilots. When their littlest Hadley Rae was born in December, Blake coached Amy via Skype in the hospital as she delivered their sweet miracle. A few days later, he arrived to meet his 2nd daughter, and I had the privilege of capturing this sw[...]

Best of 2016 : Families

Best of 2016 : Families
2016 was an amazing year for NRP Families and NRP Newborns! We met many new faces and also had the privilege of seeing the same sweet faces come back again... not just clients at this point, but friends. It's the highest compliment to us at NRP when we do see those same faces over and over again, and our goal is that our work reflect just how much we treasure those un[...]

You might recognize this beautiful mama from our Spring internship! Annie is one of our very favorite people, and I think it's fairly safe to say that we all have a genuine crush on her. We always love to gift our interns with a little mini session as a thank you for working with us, so I met Annie, Brad and their darling Mara Kate one November afternoon to photograph[...]

Thomas Family Film Session

Thomas Family Film Session
When I hosted Emily's baby shower, I gifted her with a photo session to be used however she'd like. I must say I was expecting for her to use it for a maternity or newborn session, but now that I have my own daughter who is a little older, I am SO glad she chose to use it in this way. Em always told me she wanted to redeem her session when June was a little older, [...]
