This season will only last a moment

Let’s get you photos that you’ll treasure forever

… without the pressure to have it all together

you knew this season would go by fast, but…

It feels like these moments are slipping through your fingers:

  • The sound of your baby’s giggles that erupt over your fake sneezes.
  • The snuggles from your preschooler before they run off to their next adventure.
  • The sparkle in your big kid’s eyes as they talk about Minecraft.

You’d give anything to keep them this way just a little longer & savor these moments you never want to forget.

This is where I come in…

*Probably not an ~actual~ cape, but if it makes your kids smile for pics, then I’m down for it. 😉

In case we haven’t met yet… hi, I’m Nicole!

I’m a maternity, newborn, & family photographer for moms who want beautiful photos to remember this fleeting season. 

Reheat that cup of coffee, grab a seat on the couch, And let me share a little piece of my story…

Long story short…

The challenges of being a mom led me to my purpose:

Encouraging you in your journey & documenting the fleeting moments of whatever season you’re in.

The heart of my business is connecting with moms like you.

When you work with me, you can let go of the pressure to be some sort of aspirational “perfect family.” Because I’m a mom, too, and I know that life with kids is always a little bit chaotic.

I’m here to take away the stress of photos with your family by helping you feel 100% prepared for your session. You can trust that I’ll help you feel comfortable in front of the camera… and capture the beauty in the chaos.

I can’t wait to get to know you and document beautiful memories for you—not just of this season, but of every new season of your family’s life!

“You’re quirky. I like you.”

When you work with me, I’ve been known to…

The people who make my world go 'round:

My Sweetheart

  • Tolerates my bad puns and mom jokes.
  • Loves an Excel spreadsheet.
  • My biggest supporter and the absolute best partner in life & parenting!

My Sunshine Boy

  • Gives the best hugs.
  • Loves to tinker with daddy and can take almost anything apart with a screwdriver, a wrench, and sheer willpower.
  • Can make literally anyone smile—it’s his superpower!

My Rainbow Girl

  • Wants to do everything her big brother does.
  • Loves to nurture others.
  • Has been doing things her way since she made her fast & furious debut… six days after her due date.

"Nicole is a gem of a human being."

Photographing children is no easy task, but she managed to get an entire album of keepers of our family for our son’s first birthday session. She got the vision I was going for and just made it fun taking photos in our own home. If you’re the type to get anxious or stressed before a session, she has a lot of helpful tips she sends, too! I can’t say enough about Nicole and her business, and I’d recommend her to anyone looking for a friendly yet professional photographer!
