Lauren Jolly and I go back, y’all. We go all the way back to middle school… way before photography was ever a thing that she or I claimed. Back to rushed off campus lunches at Steve’s, John Mayer obsessions, live concerts, and Duke games.

It’s been pure joy and such a blessing to walk beside friends throughout life, sometimes closely and sometimes from a distance, and to see how the Lord affirms their character and blesses them over time with growing families. Vaughn and Lauren are perfect together, and Finn… just don’t even get me started on Finn. I can’t even handle how adorable that little dude is.

When I was trying to think of a family for my NRP promo video, the Thomas’s came to mind instantly, and I’m so thankful that they were up for the task!

Lauren, Vaughn and Finn – the NRP team loves you guys something fierce! Thanks for being such a beautiful part of such an important project!

A huge thanks to Liberty and Heart for featuring this session on their blog today!
