(NP Design & Photography, New Richmond, WI)  NP Design & Photography Studio hosted its fourth annual ‘Girls Night Out’ on Friday, Feb. 26.  This event featured over 15 boutique businesses showcasing what they do best.  Apple Blossom Events, Barb’s Hairtique, Chickadee Doo Da, Covet, Hair Company, Health Max Chiropractic, High Point Framing & Art Gallery, Jamberry, Loganberry Interiors, Lu La Roe, Ready Randy’s/R & D Catering, Rusty’s Watering Hole & Chowhouse and Young Living Essential Oils were just some of the vendors on hand.

Ticket sales from this event went to the Cancer Center of Western Wisconsin in New Richmond, WI.  Together, the businesses were able to raise $550.   

“We had a lot of new attendees this year so the vendors went out of their way this year to make this a huge event!  The guests were pampered, the vendors met new customers and together we were able to contribute to the Cancer Center of Western Wisconsin!  It was a win-win for everyone” stated Teresa Peterson, Event Coordinator of NP Design & Photography. 

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!

Breck Turns THREE! | 2013 Wisconsin Photographer of the Year

Breck and his mom Lindsey have been incredible friends and clients for years. Every time we get to hang out with the little man, it is sure to be a great time. From his newborn session (images at the very bottom of this post) to his latest session, Breck is awesome!

So when Mr. Breck showed up for his three-year session (which was a surprise for his mom organized by his grandmother and Breck), we were ready for fun, smiles and plenty of high-fives. Breck had such a fantastic time on his photo shoot, he wrote into us with a few comments and thoughts about his experience. :)

Breck's 3-Year Canvas

From Breck's mom, Lindsey: "Nate captured all of Breck's expressions and personality."

From Breck: "Love my canvas! Also the Mini-Accordion is awesome!"

"We enjoy your work so much and love our friendship! Thank you!"

Breck's Newborn Session. So Cute!

The Hexum Family | NP Design Photography Studio Sessions

This past December, we had the HONOR of photographing the extended Hexum family. What a joyful, kind and engaging group of individuals! We had a blast with the session which took place right here at the studio in early December. Below are a few of their favorite images and a few words from Kirk and his family. Thanks Hexums!!

From Kirk, when asked what his favorite part of the experience was: "Seeing Mom and Dad glow! Nate brought out the best in everyone!"

{Referring to the wall art and family heirloom album the family received} "They are very nice quality and will last a lifetime and more!"

"It was truly a FUN experience. Thank you!"

Sally's Glam Portrait Session

This week, we have been pretty neglectful of the blog. For anyone that hasn't stopped by the studio in the last few weeks and seen us running from one session to the next, I'll give you an NPDP news update... we are crazy busy! NP Design & Photography is in full-fledged senior portrait season and fall sports photography is ramping up. 

Amidst all this craziness, we are taking time out for one very special lady - our wonderful friend, Sally Field. Sally originally came to NP Design & Photography for a professional headshot portrait late last year and has been stuck with us ever since! In January, she participated in our Glamour Portraits Limited Edition Series and we all had an absolute blast. 

Below are some of Sally's favorite images, a few special spreads from her custom-designed album, and her beautiful slideshow.


From Sally: "Nate had Latin music playing and I LOVE that music. I started dancing around in my little black dress and he got what I was feeling."


"The album was my husband's Valentine's gift and he LOVED picking out what images he wanted!"


"I was having way too much fun. {My session} was way too short! I could have played for hours! Love you guys!"


"Nate and Teresa put together an amazing slideshow too!"

WHCC Backdrops and Floors Invades NPDP

Any of our clients can tell you how much we love and value the photographic products we create - from wall art canvas wraps to image blocks to press printed cards. In the same vein, we love styling and creating during a session equally as much. Coordinating outfits, picking out backdrops, and selecting locations is a blast.

So when Nate was asked to photograph a new line of photographic backdrops and floors for our fantastic photo lab - White House Custom Color - we were ecstatic. Check out some of the images below from the two-day marathon session. You may recognize a few faces. And thanks to WHCC. You guys rock.
