Olivia and Andrew Raleigh, NC Rehearsal Dinner

Olivia and Andrew Raleigh, NC Rehearsal Dinner
I LOVE surprises. And the best thing about this Rehearsal and Dinner? Olivia had no idea I was coming! I was so sneaky arriving in the parking lot - I made sure I had all my equipment loaded up just right, and as I approached the rehearsal, I felt like I had to tiptoe across the grass. A few others saw me first, but then Olivia caught my eye. I knew she would be ex[...]

The WHY Behind a Team& our Top 5 Team Resources

The WHY Behind a Team
It was 2012, and Will and I were sitting across from each other in a coffee shop, discussing the big-picture future of Nancy Ray Photography. We were at a crossroad, trying to decide if we wanted to stay the “husband - wife team” route that most photographers took, or if we wanted to take a risk and hire associate photographers to form a team. We were nervous, and [...]

Olivia’s NRP Journey

Olivia's NRP Journey
I know this is a totally cheesy thing to say, but I honestly still find it hard to believe that THIS is my job.

The Most Surprising Effect of Our Internship Program

The Most Surprising Effect of Our Internship Program
6 years ago, I was completely overwhelmed. I finally stopped long enough to realize that I needed help in the studio, and I hired my first intern (link to “meet robin blogpost). I’m not gonna lie - it was incredibly helpful! I got more done and was less stressed because I had help. But this internship program has turned into not only a helpful resource for our studio,[...]
