Sometimes I find words hard to come by. Sometimes it's easier to show someone what I see, and what I feel. And sometimes I show it through photos.
Finding the perfect moment to capture, first with my heart and then my eyes, I find that authentic beauty that makes your family you. With all its rough spots and smooth edges, I give you images that stir your emotions and force you to relive that feeling of love and blissful joy you felt the moment it was captured.
I photograph the real, authentic, emotional. Not only do the smiles and belly laughs draw me in, but the soft, sweet, and delicate do too.
So, if these images speak to you the way they do for me and make you feel, I would be honored to capture that kind of love for you, too.
“Nicole was able to capture not images, but feelings. Real, raw, authentic moments of our little family. And that’s exactly what we wanted and more. Thank you again Nicole for this incredible experience.”
“Nicole was absolutely amazing to work with!!! I have worked with plenty of photographers (maternity, engagement, professional, wedding, etc.), and she was hands down the most prepared + professional! She truly cares about her clients, and we were able to relax and have such a fun experience on the shoot. We will be using her regularly for any photography needs!! This is your sign; book her now :)”
“Nicole did an amazing job capturing our family. She was extremely personable and worked well with our children. I was very impressed with how professional and well-organized the entire process was. She made us feel comfortable every step of the way, I knew she had our best interests at heart. We wanted a more urban vibe and she made sure to research and find the perfect location!! The pictures turned out beautiful!!! It was a moment with my family that I will cherish forever!! Highly highly recommend for any type of photo shoot.”
“Our little Dally fam of 3 had the best time with Nicole on Saturday! It was so nice to FINALLY meet her! She was so sweet && totally made us all so comfortable. It was like we were just hanging in this beautiful forest with our new BFF. We are so thankful for this fun time exploring & playing with River && to have those memories captured through a lens. We had a BLAST! ”
“Nicole is phenomenal! She not only takes beautiful pictures but also creates an environment that is comfortable and fun during the shoot. She has great ideas and helps with all the little things like hair, makeup, & outfits beforehand too. I would absolutely recommend Nicole to anyone looking for a fun photo shoot and magical pictures that will last a lifetime. Thank you for a great experience!”
“We loved having Nicole visit & take our pics! She is so down to earth & was a saint putting up with my awkward nuzzling skills & our little humans, ha! Seriously though...sweet, a natural with kiddos, gorgeous, and super talented. We love her!”
“Everything about our experience was perfect! Looking for a photographer out of state for our family photos seemed like it was going to be a stressful task full of uncertainty.. however, once I found Nicole, everything was so easy and definitely stress-free. I got a link to see some of her work, so I knew what I was paying for. She helped us pick out some bomb outfits and made the whole experience unforgettable. Everything seemed natural, and we had so much fun at our shoot. Definitely recommend Nicole whether you live in or out of state! She keeps in contact and takes all the weight off your shoulders, plus you have tons of fun! Will definitely get more family photos done by her in the future!”
Nicole has taken so many pictures for me and every single time I have had an amazing experience. She has taken my senior pictures, my engagement pictures, my family pictures, even pictures with my puppy, and I have loved EVERY single picture she has taken. The shoots are always so fun and Nicole always creates such a great environment you don't even feel like you are getting your picture taken. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone that was looking to capture any big moments in their lives.

There is at least two of you and you have a home, or apartment, a place you call home.
You dream of capturing more moments of you and your littles and want to document the love you share with them every day.
You envision on your walls the candid, raw, and true love moments. The moments you open your heart for each and every day. The moments that remind you of the hard work of being a mother, a father, a member of a family.
// People who are looking for cookie-cutter poses, traditional, everyone smiling images. I will get a few, but it will not be the focus of our time together.
// Large extended families, unless grandma and grandpa want to come over and hangout that day, then yay!
// Ones who are worried about what others think of them. These sessions are up close and personal, and some people might not get that. Your in-laws might want your girls dressed in matching outfits at the park. If matchy and posed is what you’re after, this session is not for you. We’re going for the raw, the real, and the authentic.
Upon booking I’ll send you a little packet with all the goodies about what to wear and how to prep for your session. We will also look through your closets together, so don't stress! Two rules: mom gets to pick what she wears first and no matching.
Good news: you are off the hook for the entire session. It’s my job to worry about your littles–I’ve got a few tricks up my sleeve. Our time together is about you lovin on your family and to show up with an open heart. (Plus, it actually works better if you let me do the worrying–I count on kids to give me their natural selves, and they can’t do that as well with mom & dad trying to bribe them into following absolutely everything I say.) Pressure’s off you, it's time to have some fun!
Your images will be ready for download 3-4 weeks after your session!
Not only am I a photographer, but I am a 5/6th grade teacher, so weekends are best for me! I also typically shoot right before sunset to get that magic golden hour, however, each session is unique so we will discuss this in more detail after you book.
Nope! Everything is a la carte. I love choices, so I thought it would be nice to give you the opportunity to make some choices too. To choose the items that speak to your heart, and not be pressured to invest in something that doesn't really woo you.
You will get an online gallery 3-4 weeks after your session with approximately 50 images.
