Last year (that’s weird to say), I just couldn’t keep up with the college graduation blog posts! During these Fall sessions, I was secretively in the middle of packing to move to a different state, moving into a new home, traveling to 8 different cities, and having 10 different photoshoots all in the same month! My blogging went a little downhill because I couldn’t juggle it all! I thought it would be appropriate to blog the best of my Fall 2017 college graduates! YAY, I am so excited to finally show off these beauties! PS this might be the longest blog ever because I had the hardest time picking and choosing which images to use because they’re all so prettyyyy!!! Congratulations to these stunning ladies, you are officially a college graduate! XO
This is Lauren, one of my ECU graduates! Obsessed with these glitter shots!
This is Emily, an NC State graduate! This was my first time on this campus and I was loving it!! New locations make me the happiest, especially with this sweet lady!!
This is Allison, a UNC graduate, who brought a few friends along for the fun!
This is Michelle, another ECU graduate celebrating with glitter and champagne!

Okay… It’s basically everyone’s birthday month. That includes my sister-in-law, Christielee, my dear friend, Brandon, and a lot of other friends, too!
It’s also mine and Eli’s dating anniversary, so we like to celebrate with a concert or a date night! This year we are doing something super fun that we can’t speak of until the day-of AND we are going to a John Mayer concert! (YAS)
Obviously, it’s the best month ever. It’s filled with celebration and love! What better month to celebrate the new and improved Remy Thompson Photography, right!?

Here is a fun sneak peek into my new brand created by the amazing Bright & Social Co. and I am SO in love!!! The sisters who own the company, Mandy and Megan, specialize in social media management, website design, and branding. They seriously made my vision come to life so much better than I expected. I can’t thank them enough for working so hard and long (since April!) on this project. I can’t wait for you all to see more, but for now here is a pretty little snap shot into my website!!
I’m so excited to start this new journey so that I can really begin growing this passion and business of mine! Normally I would think to myself, “nobody actually cares what I have to say..nobody is going to read it..most people will just laugh at me..nobody takes me seriously..” But now, I’m saying “GOODBYE negative thoughts, GOODBYE fear, and HELLO to an encouraged, inspired, first-time blogger, Remy!”
Name Rant: Yes, my name is Remy and no, I’m not a dog. I swear, I have met ONE human (a boy) and 10 dogs named Remy. This can get pretty weird when the dog isn’t behaving and the owner is yelling at it… No, Remy isn’t short for Remmington. Yes, I despise the movie “Ratatouille” because the rat’s name is Remy and now every time someone hears my name they think of a rat…that’s awesome. Also, the famous lines I have always gotten when I introduce myself: “ohhh, like Remy Ma?”…”ohhh, like Remy Martin?” Yep, you got it! 🙂 But anyway, I just wanted to get the name questions out of the way. Now for the real introduction!

I am a Portrait Photographer currently located in North Carolina, yet always willing, and even hoping, to travel! I grew up just south of Richmond, VA, graduated from East Carolina University in 2014, and found love on Hatteras Island, NC (that’s a whole other blog post). My best friend and fiancé is a super cool, part hippie, dread-head, surfer, musician, fire-spinner, who can-basically-do-everything, and he’s kind of my total opposite (and I love him for that).
I’m an obsessed Aunt to the cutest nephew on the planet! I’m inspired by my crazy, New York, Italian family, who I love to death and miss 24/7, even though they live 3 hours away (that’s sad). I most definitely have an obsession with pink. I mean.. you know you have an obsession when you are separating your laundry and realize you have an entire pile for just the pink clothes and then still believe you don’t have enough pink in your life.. I LOVE pink. It’s just so pretty and girly and fun!!! 🙂 Other things I really love: white chocolate mochas, vanilla chai, flowers, candles, LOTS of pizza (I mean like, a LOT of pizza), sunsets, and adventure. Oh, and I can’t forget my sweet pup, Behr. He sleeps all day, every day and I love his cute cuddles more than anything!

I’d also like to share that I cry at just about every movie because, well, I’m emotional. The Biase’s are an emotional bunch. I wouldn’t have it any other way. My parents are amazing and taught me how to use my emotions in the best ways. This is where it gets juicy… Being emotional is what makes me care a weird amount for just about every person that comes into my life. I care a lot, I pour my heart into everything I do, and I love to love. Love is what we LIVE for. Some may not think so, but I do. Love is to give, to sacrifice, to serve. Love is real and raw. Love is what we share with friends, family, co-workers, strangers, and yourself. Love is what this world thrives off of! Love is everything. And that’s why I was called to study hospitality management in college. Hospitality is practicing friendliness, kindness, welcoming, and serving. No, I’m not always the perfect example of hospitality, I constantly face lessons that humble me; but my heart is in this industry and I want to use it to spread love and light to the world. Ultimately, I feel that light shining through the most when I am celebrating with my clients during a session.
I believe in celebrating each milestone in this wild life. I find passion in sharing your love story, popping the champagne because you’re graduating, showing off your first baby bump, and remembering each minute of every special moment.
I think you probably know me a little too well by now, and that’s fine with me! I can’t wait to begin this blogging journey with a fresh post each week…I already have so many ideas that my head could explode! Expect a little bit of every topic of my life and an inside look into all my portrait sessions coming up. I’m so happy you’re joining me on this exciting adventure! Have a topic you want me to share about in the future? Email me with suggestions, I’m open to anything!
