Thanks for stopping by! I'm Nicole and I'm a free spirited, fun loving, baby whispering, yoga pants obsessed, open to a fault, social media loving millenial. The sun is my spirit animal, the water is my soulmate, and the mountains are always calling my name. I play my music realllllly loud and I dance while I cook. I have a fierce love for my family, friends, and God. I am not afraid to admit that life isn't perfect and somedays I am just pretending to adult through this beautiful mess we call life. I have been in business 9 plus years and work full time as a portrait photographer!

I am a wife and mom to two spirited and beautiful children:) When they aren't driving me a little cray cray, they inspire me every day to use the art of photography to capture our memories. They are my muses and you will see lots of them in my work!

I love children and mine are as silly as I come so don't worry if you are 90% sure your toddler is going to make me chase the smiles or if your child is painfully shy. I am dedicated to getting fabulous images for all my clients and not afraid of hard work.

Things I love:Laughing till I cry. Instagram Shopping. Caffiene. Beach resorts. Yoga. Essential oils. Amazon. Warm weather. Girls nights. Dress-up parties. The Mountains. My amazon Echo. Long talks. Clothes that sparkle. Feeling appreciated. 

I believe that kindness, compassion, and love are the answer to anything and everything. Lots of my clients have turned into friends and I am hoping many of you will too.

When should I book my newborn session? 

The sooner the better to ensure a place on my calendar, it's never too early! 

When should we shoot my maternity session? 

I usually suggest around 32-36 weeks (30-34 weeks for multiples) 

How far in advance should I book my family sesion?

I book up to 6 months in advance. My weekends fill up quickly as I limit the amount of sessions I take on *especially during the fall*.  I suggest booking fall sessions during the summer. 

Will you help me choose a location? 

Absolutely! I have lived in the area over a decade and have a list of places I love to shoot but I am always open to new ideas! It helps me if you know the "look" you are wanting to acheive before we talk about location choices! Do you love the woodst natural look? Fields? A lake? Gardens? You can view these albums or the ones on my facebook page to see what you are drawn to!
