Hi! I'm Nicole!

Meeting someone new online is always scary (hello Catfish) so I will try my best to make this introduction honest and true to who I am!

I am a born and raised Oregonian who obviously runs on fancy, local lattes and is moderately tattooed. The 9 months of rain is my kind of weather but I also enjoy the golden hour sunlight that Oregon summers provide. As a native Pacific Northwestern, I rely heavily on the outdoors to provide me with happy endorphins. Pair that with photography and being able to work with kids makes for quite the dreamy "day job". 

For 6 years of my life, I worked to earn my Bachelors of Fine Art, Photography & Design degree. After receiving that expensive piece of paper that now lives...well...somewhere in a storage unit, I put my passion to work, quit my full time day job and started working with families and newborns as much possible.

I have never looked back.

Even though I am in my 30's, I seem to relate more to kids than I do adults, which is why I find this job to be my hearts desire and passion. I truly love getting on their level and capturing images of them being exactly who they are. There is something magical about kids running free while belly laughing, dads feeling comfortable enough to show those natural smiles that moms love and watching mothers glow while they watch their session come to life just as they had imagined it.

Capturing small moments is my focus while working with your family. I'll ask that you whisper what you find most beautiful about your wife in her ear, that you embrace your children with warm and motherly love, and that your kids let me know who has the smellier feet (usually it's dad...sorry to spoil the surprise). This is a time to document your family exactly as they are in this moment. I will also ask you how you met, what your favorite food is and if you like the San Jose Sharks. I hope you say you do...if you don't, just don't tell me you like the Pittsburg Penguins and we should be fine, fine, FINE!

On a personal note, I have a slight obsession with houseplants, ice hockey (can ya tell) and carbs.

I look forward to working with you!
