May 2017 Mini-Sessions Part 1

May 2017 Mini-Sessions Part 1
May mini-sessions didn't disappoint, even with the somewhat icky start to the day with the weather! While we do love that beautiful sunlight, sometimes an overcast forecast is good for a change. If I've said it once, I've said it a billion times - I could not have done it without our amazing intern, Anna! We had tons of familiar faces throughout the day and even enjo[...]

Behind the Scenes: October Mini Sessions

Behind the Scenes: October Mini Sessions
Maybe you're brand new to the concept of mini-sessions, and you're not quite sure how it all works and whether or not it'd be a good fit for your family. In a nutshell, mini-sessions are a lot of quick family sessions, back to back, in one single location. Here are a few "Behind the Scenes" tidbits and glimpses to give you an idea of how I make a whirlwind of 20 minut[...]

Best of 2016 : Families

Best of 2016 : Families
2016 was an amazing year for NRP Families and NRP Newborns! 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 un[...]

Lucy is 2! and Merta Film Family Session

Lucy is 2! and Merta Film Family Session
This family. Guys. Here is my goal as a photographer: to see your family grow over years and years and to document it along the way. I like random photo sessions as much as the next person, but they don't hold a candle to the joy that I get from photographing the same family year after year after year. Being THEIR photographer, not just A photographer. Let me te[...]

Hadley Grace Hoffman Birth

Hadley Grace Hoffman Birth
It was November 10th, and I was just pulling into my driveway after running a few errands. It was early in the afternoon, and I saw Krystal's name pop up on my phone. I answered, prepared just to chat (we've been friends since high school), but she very calmly started the conversation by explaining that her water had broken, and that she and Adam were headed to Rex to[...]

Cameron and Daniel Downtown Film Maternity Session

Cameron and Daniel Downtown Film Maternity Session
I officially love shooting sessions around the Capitol building downtown. I don't know what it is, but those sessions always are with clients who I'm like "YES. I like you. Let's hang out ASAP." Cameron and Daniel's maternity session was absolutely no different: there was lots of great conversation, laughing, and I'm officially extremely excited to photograph their ne[...]

Ice Family Film Session

Ice Family Film Session
I got to know the Ice family at a session I did with them a couple of years ago. Most of my repeat clients are families with really little kids, but the Ice kids are a bit older - back then Emma was 15, Evan was 13. Seeing them two years later, at 17 and 15, was pretty cool. It definitely served as a reminder to me that older kids are changing and growing just as rapi[...]

Felicity Kelley 1 Year Film Session

Felicity Kelley 1 Year Film Session
This was my second to last session with the Kelley family... the first being Amelia and Andrew's maternity session, then Amelia's baby shower, and then Felicity's newborn photos. I actually just photographed Felicity's first birthday party 2 weeks ago, and it was so cool to have that milestone as a marker for the end of our time together. Amelia and Andrew are so i[...]

Kenzie Jackson Film Newborn Session

Kenzie Jackson Film Newborn Session
Every once in a while I do a session that just refills my tank in a way I didn't really expect or know I needed. Kenzie's newborn session was one of those sessions. Instead of driving home I wanted to go do 3 more just like it as I was pulling out of their driveway. Pretty sure the family pictures I got of the Jackson's are some of my favorites. Like, ever. I think[...]

Thomas Family Day in the Life Film Session

Thomas Family Day in the Life Film Session
I take a lot of portraits. Candid portraits, even, that are a little more photojournalistic. But. There's something that I love so much about straight up documentary-style photography. 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[...]
