Tate Twins Birth

Tate Twins Birth
I will never ever forget January 2, 2018. Two miracles joined us, and I was there to capture every moment. A little backstory: I want you to hear me when I say they are MIRACLES. Elizabeth, their warrior mama, has been praying for these babies for YEARS. Elizabeth was my college roommate, and a member of the NRP Team for 5 years. I remember praying with her 2 year[...]

Best of 2017 : Families

Best of 2017 : Families
2017 was an unforgettable year for NRP Families! 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 unique client r[...]

October 2017 Mini-Sessions Part 2

October 2017 Mini-Sessions Part 2
Mini-session round 2 at Portico Pictures Studio was a success, just like last year! We just love the look of that all white space so much... it's clean and simple and fresh and literally every family who participated in these little studio mini-sessions are going to have Christmas card images that don't clash with any card they could possibly choose, and that makes o[...]

Carter Family Film Session

Carter Family Film Session
This post has too much cuteness I can't even handle it! You probably recognize that sweet smiling mama as Becca, our Fall intern this year! We LOVED having Becca around, and I don't think there was a dry eye in the studio when we all said our goodbyes to her. She is patient, steady, attentive, passionate, kind, and the strongest prayer warrior I have ever met. Not[...]

October 2017 Mini-Sessions Part 1

October 2017 Mini-Sessions Part 1
Whoa baby, the first round of October mini-sessions were a whirlwind this year! First of all, you guys sold them out in literally like a day and a half after we launched them, so bravo, brilliant, thank you very much! We totally would have added more slots, but there are these little people you may have heard of by now that have slowed me down a little bit - the Tate[...]

Elizabeth and Robert Film Maternity Session

Elizabeth and Robert Film Maternity Session
I will never forget the day that Elizabeth casually stopped by the studio. I didn't think anything of it until she said "I've got to tell y'all something." All of us immediately screamed and starting jumping up and down. We knew she was going to tell us she was pregnant and we yelled at her, "SAY IT. SAY IT. SAY IT OUT LOUD!" But then, it gets even better. She pulled [...]

Almond Family Film Session

Almond Family Film Session
I met Margaret, Jonathan and their sweet little princess Grace at Hillridge Farms right as Fall was starting. It was the first week that Hillridge had their pumpkin patch open, and even though we were still living that mid-summer NC heat, it just felt like a new season was in the air. I hadn't seen them or talked much to them since Grace's newborn session last year ([...]

Kelley Family Raleigh, NC Film Session

Kelley Family Raleigh, NC Film Session
This sweet family competes for the record in how many sessions we've done together! It all started a couple of years ago (how is that even possible!?) at Amelia and Andrew’s maternity session, then we did Amelia’s baby shower, and then Felicity’s newborn photos. I photographed Felicity’s one year session and then her first birthday party, and now 2 years with this sw[...]

Carrington and Justin Pinehurst, NC Film Anniversary Session

Carrington and Justin Pinehurst, NC Film Anniversary Session
Anniversary sessions might be one of my favorite things, especially when it just so happens to be one of my very first friends in the wedding industry! Carrington and I met back in 2013 at a wedding when she had just begun working with Erin McLeans Events, and I was still training under Nancy to be a wedding photographer. We instantly clicked and have been friends eve[...]

Charlotte Billington 1 Year Film Session

Charlotte Billington 1 Year Film Session
I'm pretty sure it was just yesterday that I was doing Beth and Shawn's maternity photos... how is it that their little one, Charlotte, is already one year old!? Beth was an old coworker from when I worked at Biogen, and we've kept up with each other through social media over the recent years. She and Shawn are truly just the sweetest couple, and watching them on thi[...]
