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[...]

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[...]

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[...]

Lucas Foley Film Newborn Session

Lucas Foley Film Newborn Session
We did the Foley's newborn session in their sweet home just a couple of weeks after their little dude Lucas was born, and it was such a special time! David and Megan were so incredibly smitten by their little dude, and just stood by and watched with big ole' grins as I photographed him during his solo shots. They seem to be loving the little details of newborn life, a[...]

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[...]

Merta Family Raleigh, NC Film Session

Merta Family Raleigh, NC Film Session
I met Jean, Kevin, Lucy (and baby Charlotte, in Jean's belly!) at Fletcher Park one hot afternoon in August... Real quick about this family: we love them a lot. We've done literally every session you can think of for them: Jean and Kevin’s engagement session Their wedding Lucy’s 6 month, 9 month, 1 year milestone, and 2 year milestone They are NRP family, at this[...]

Lyndon Ray Film Newborn Session

Lyndon Ray Film Newborn Session
If you told me 10 years ago that I'd still be doing photography alongside Nancy in our post-college years, and that I'd be regularly documenting these fleeting days in the life of her growing family, I don't think you could have made me a happier camper. I cannot adequately put into words what a gift it has been to do sessions for this family. Let's talk about Lyndon[...]

Chandler Hughes Film Newborn Session

Chandler Hughes Film Newborn Session
I've got some familiar faces for you today! Nancy and I have known Stephanie since middle school (whoa); and we've now had the privilege of photographing her family as it's grown over the years - and what a treasure they are! First, Nancy did Stephanie and Jarrod's wedding. After that, I did their little dude Waylon's newborn session. Then, I did a mini-session [...]

Tash Sall Film Newborn Session

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 [...]
