November/December Pickups! | NP Design and Photography | Twin Cities Senior Photographer

Our haul from the Fedex guys one particularly productive day.

Well, it's been a busy few months here at NP Design & Photography. Not only do we have the holiday rush in full effect, but we are under construction! Amidst all the craziness, we managed to capture a few of our Seniors and families stopping in for pickups. Apologies to all that we missed!

Ty's Senior Experience - Two Amazing Sessions!

Ty and his family joined us towards the end of the summer for his session, which turned into two (!) after the weather put a bit of a damper on things. Nevertheless, both sessions were an absolute blast and we couldn't have asked for a more understand, amazing family to work with! You guys are spectacular! Here is a few words about Ty's Senior Experience from his family! 

From Ty: "I really don't like getting my picture taken or being the center of attention. Nate made it fun, lighthearted and relaxing."

From Ty: "Glad he took the time to get to know me and my interests. Favorite memory, Nate attempting to do a pullup at the gym." :)

From Ty's parents: "We received a wall portrait, wall collage and photo album/book. Each piece is unique. Favorite is the wall portrait {below}! There is nothing we don't love about it!"

"Also LOVE the Senior album. Would recommend this to all parents!"

From Ty's parents" "AMAZING! Very thankful we participated in the entire experience with Ty. Memories we can't ever replace! We couldn't ask for a better experience. Would do it again in a heartbeat!"

Our New Websites Are Up & Running!

Over the past few months, we have been working on improving our presence on the web with a revised and more relevant website for NP Design & Photography and a whole new separate site for our High School Seniors, NPDPSENIORS.COM. After much brainstorming, experimenting, research and implementation, we are excited to finally and officially share both sites with the world. Take a look around and see what you think! Any feedback can be left in the CONTACT section.

Legacy Portraits: Irv & Mary

This past spring, we hosted a month-long event here at the studio titled Legacy Portraits. Basically, we asked leaders in the community to join us for a commemorative portrait that they and their family would treasure forever. We were absolutely honored when Irv and Mary Sather walked into our studio to participate and share their stories with us. This couple is the very essence and spirit of New Richmond and we can't wait to share their session with all of our clients and the town of New Richmond. For more from Irv and Mary, find their personal comments below. Thank you Sather family!


"We have received many compliments on our sofa photo! "You look so good," "Such a natural picture," etc. We think it was Nate's great photography that did the job of creating compliments for us!"


"Over past years, I probably was walking in the news office building on West Second Street {in downtown New Richmond} a thousand times. When we came for our appointment, I about fell over in surprise - Nate has redecorated beautifully with comfortable settings that make portrait taking relaxing and comfortable."
