Why yes, this is a familiar face! While we haven’t added a new member to our team to be our family photographer, we have shifted our roles a bit here at NRP. For several months now, Elizabeth has slowly been shifting her focus from photographing weddings to photographing families. Why? Simply put, it was the perfect fit! Elizabeth adores kids and loves working with families. The relaxed and playful environment of photographing families is the perfect match for Elizabeth’s laid back personality.

Elizabeth has been a wonderful wedding photographer with us for the past year, and we will sure miss her beautiful eye capturing weddings. While she won’t be booking weddings herself anymore, she will certainly be 2nd shooting for myself and Callie occasionally! Even though she loved photographing weddings as the lead photographer, families truly have her heart. Having known Elizabeth for so many years, I am confident this is the perfect fit for her gifts and personality.

A few thoughts from Elizabeth (who you will be hearing from on this blog more often!) :

I have learned a ton about growing in my weaknesses while capitalizing on my strengths since I started with NRP two years ago. I could write a whole post, nay! a whole series of posts- about growing in my weaknesses. Emphasis here, though, is capitalizing on my strengths. Why did we decide that family photography was a perfect fit for me?

First of all, because I love it. I love how every single family is unique with their own values and traditions. I love rolling with the chaos that comes most of the time when you involve children under the age of 5, and the realness that’s evident in pictures when you adapt to each family and go with their flow. I’m a kid person, and I love that many sessions end up with me literally on the floor playing Geo-trax with my camera in hand (Geo-trax are so cool). I’m flexible, and I love flexibility. I expect spilt milk and goldfish disasters that end up with a last minute wardrobe change, because let’s face it, that’s real life. And I’m good with that because these little disasters only happen for a season. And I don’t actually have my own kids yet, but from what I understand, that little season is way too short, extremely sweet, and perfectly imperfect. How fun is that, to capture all of that in photographs!? That’s why I’m thrilled to shift my focus to families!
