Micah is a senior at Lititz Christian School, and eagerly waiting for graduation to make her big move to .. ALASKA! This girl is super driven, adventurous and sweet. I can only imagine all of the exciting things she’s going to embark on in her lifetime. Micah chose to go with our deluxe package, which offers two, one hour sessions (either on the same day or split into two separate days). This is such a great option for all you girlies out there who want to be able to style your hair differently (the daily struggle of curly vs straight is a real thing- ha!).
Micah split her sessions into two days, which was super fun. She went with a more natural, curly look for her woodsy session because she is a total nature lover. We photographed around Speedwell Lake for these. For her second session she wanted to go with something a little more edgy and urban. We photographed in some back alley’s of Lititz for this vibe. Her outfits were the perfect picks for each location.
Here are a few of my favorite shots that we captured!

YOU GUYS. Julia, Tori and I have some big new’s we’ve been waiting anxiously to share. We are beyond excited to announce our new super exciting collaboration and team member. Kelsey Courtney of Style By Rae is officially the Meagan Nicole Photography team stylist!!! WHUUUUT. Shut the front door. No really, it’s true! Kelsey is an extremely talented stylist in all facets and we are so excited to mesh our love for capturing authentic moments with beautiful style crafted to fit your personality.
I’ve known Kelsey ever since 10th grade in high school. We both quickly bonded over the fact that we were the only girls in school who admittedly used a tanning bed. Ever since I’ve loved watching Kelsey evolve in her style; she’s always been one of my go to’s for social media style stalking (just to be honest). Even more exciting then her amazing style joining our team is the fact that she’s an expecting mama for the first time!! Follow her along on IG with her #ourbabycourtney updates, you won’t regret it. Although you might come down with a heavy case of baby fever and jealousy that this girl can rock just about anything with that bump.
We’ve been scheming up way’s to make the MNP experience even better for all of our clients, so when Kelsey contacted us with the idea we instantly knew this is what we were looking for to take MNP to the next step. This will now provide clients with the option of outfit styling, makeup/hair styling AND location styling. Whose ready to jump aboard the awesome train!? We’ve perfected a ton of new options and packages for you to choose from and we can’t wait to get started. Style By Rae is officially available to book, but dates are filling up fast (and I’m not just saying that). We want to get everyone in so please make sure to email us asap to get your date on the calendar! Side note, another awesome side fact: Kelsey’s husband is a can’t-keep-your-butt-in-your-seat rocking DJ and owns The Electric Gentlemen who we highly, highly recommend for any of you engaged love birds out there. Is this just the dream team or what..

“ Ever since I was a little girl, I have loved clothes! I would change my outfit three times a day and I would turn my room into a make believe consignment shop! This passion continued as I began working in retail when I was 16 years old. My first retail job was at Bakers Shoes were I was trained in selling and styling. My love for styling grew as I moved onto working at the LOFT, where I was elected style captain of our store’s team! I was responsible for creating fashion inspiration for the LOFT employees and helping them style our clients!
Several years ago, I began an Etsy shop called, That Cat Dress, where I friend and I thrifted vintage, eclectic, and high-end clothing. It was so much fun searching for unique styles to sell in our shop! To this day, one of my favorite things to do is thrift vintage items and mix them in with my modern wardrobe!
I’ve been following style bloggers for years and I’ve gained so much inspiration from many of them that I decided to start my own style blog! I finally took the leap and launched my blog, Style By Rae, in May of 2015. My main goal with my blog is to show trendy styles at an affordable price! – Kelsey “
Favorite Make-Up Choice: My go-to make up product is my Urban Decay Naked Flushed palate! It’s a trio compact that includes a bronzer, blush, and highlight! It’s so easy to throw in my bag and it looks beautiful on your skin during every season!

With 2015 kicking off we decided to share some exciting news with you! In 2014 we had the honor of hosting two interns Katherine and Julia. This year we are welcoming Julia to Meagan Nicole Photography as an official team member!!! Tori and I are super excited to have Julia as a part of the team. Julia has a passion and undeniable talent for photography, it’s been a joy getting to watch her grow and learn over 2014 and now we are so eager to not only see how all of our different styles blend together, but to see Julia begin to book her own weddings and sessions. This is going to be one full, busy summer! We’ve booked some amazing clients already and are also looking forward to JULIA’S wedding on July 10th! My wedding last year, Julia’s this year.. who knows, maybe Tori will be next year! winkwink.
It’s so crazy for me to see this small photography business I started almost 6 years ago growing into this beautiful, creative team. Although our vision isn’t focused on growing to be bigger and bigger, it’s so awesome to see the doors the Lord is opening as we completely rely on Him. 2015 is going to be so, so good. We will be working on adding Julia’s portfolio + contact info to our website over the next couple months, but until then anyone who is interested in booking Julia please email her at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire for her 2015 collections and availability. I am so excited to introduce you to the third official team member of MNP, Julia Fisher (soon to be Horn!).
I am 23 and have been photographing people’s special moments for around 5 years now. When I’m not doing photography I’m rockin’ two other jobs- a barista at Bakery At The Cupboard, and a receptionist at Pure Joy Salon. I enjoy being outside and hiking, having a jam sesh with my fiance on our guitar and ukelele, or vegging in front of the tv to watch Parks and Rec. Also, I like show tunes .. a lot. I like to sing them loud and proud in my car with the windows down. It’s really quite shameful.
I first realized my love of photography in 8th grade. I got my first “real” camera from my parents at 15 and started taking pictures of everything and everyone as often as possible. I didn’t go to school for photography because I was tricked into thinking it was more of a hobby then a possible profession. However, in the last year I’ve seen that it has brought me so much more joy then I realized. When you’re doing something you love and something you’re meant to do, there’s a new life that gets breathed into you. For me, that life was God’s way of telling me this is something I should press on with and pursue wholeheartedly. My growing portfolio includes weddings, styled portraits, maternity, newborn, family, and engagement sessions. My experience as an intern for Meagan Nicole Photography helped expand my knowledge of the art of photography, as well as nurtured my personal style: encapsulating raw emotion and genuine, natural posing. I am eagerly awaiting the 2015 wedding season to capture the excitement of new brides as well as prepare for my own July wedding!

Tori and I are so excited to be kicking off this new blog series! Every Tuesday (life-and-weather-permitting) we will be sharing a fun blog post with you involving our latest adventure, craft, recipe trial, or anything else clever that we are up to. We’re calling it.. Tuesdays With The Team! This Tuesday we are sharing our little, quirky adventure from last night with you. We got so pumped about the non-rainy-sunny-weather so we had this brilliant idea to have a picnic by the lake and mess around with photos at sunset buuut, by the time we got our smoothies/salads it was a bit tight on time to get to the lake. So instead, we improvised and drove around to the first random field we spotted that looked note worthy. We learned two lessons: 1. Drinking smoothies while shivering kind of sucks and 2. eating salad with mittens on proves to be rather difficult. So instead, we snapped some fun pictures and had our picnic in the car. It was divine.
We have a lot of fun ideas stored up for this series and we can’t wait to begin! Have anything fun you’d like us to try? Comment below with any ideas and we’ll put them to the test (you could even join if you’d like) and we’ll feature it on one of our next Tuesdays With The Team!
Happy Tuesday Y’all!
Meg + Tori
