Best of 2017 : Families

Best of 2017 : Families
2017 was an unforgettable year for NRP Families! 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 unique client r[...]

Carter Family Film Session

Carter Family Film Session
This post has too much cuteness I can't even handle it! You probably recognize that sweet smiling mama as Becca, our Fall intern this year! We LOVED having Becca around, and I don't think there was a dry eye in the studio when we all said our goodbyes to her. She is patient, steady, attentive, passionate, kind, and the strongest prayer warrior I have ever met. Not[...]

Elizabeth and Robert Film Maternity Session

Elizabeth and Robert Film Maternity Session
I will never forget the day that Elizabeth casually stopped by the studio. I didn't think anything of it until she said "I've got to tell y'all something." All of us immediately screamed and starting jumping up and down. We knew she was going to tell us she was pregnant and we yelled at her, "SAY IT. SAY IT. SAY IT OUT LOUD!" But then, it gets even better. She pulled [...]

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[...]

Piper Thorp Film Newborn Session

Piper Thorp Film Newborn Session
This family! From the moment I walked in the door at the Thorp home, I felt welcomed, at ease, relaxed. Lindsay and Brian were quick to make me feel that way with their warm conversation and their laid back natures. I took one little look at their sweet girl Piper, and I thought... this is going to be a great session! I enjoyed every minute of it... from holding and[...]

Why Portico Pictures Studio is a good option for Christmas Cards

Why Portico Pictures Studio is a good option for Christmas Cards
If you hadn't noticed, here's a fun fact about my preferred photographic style: I'm drawn more towards simplicity in environment, towards sweet details and moments, towards my subject as a whole. I can truly appreciate bare, simple spaces - why? because there are zero distractions when it comes to highlighting what's really important: people. Family. Moments. That's [...]
