Here's what I love about film: It's SIMPLE. As photographers, I believe we tend to overcomplicate things while shooting. We overthink our settings, our styling, our approach.

Best of 2016 : Families
2016 was an amazing year for NRP Families and NRP Newborns!

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[...]

It's real, it's raw, it's unplanned. I've loved it since I studied it in college, and now that I can apply it to the portraiture side of photography? Dream come true. Especially when it[...]

The thought of writing a blogpost about this family overwhelms me. They're the Benson's... Lindsey and Chad... they're two of me and Robert's best friends. Lindsey and I have known each other for about 16 years, which sounds crazy to say. We hung out one time about mid-way through college (I'm going to pretend like that wasn't 10 years ago), and that was that. That[...]
