What I Believe

Hi! If you’re new here, welcome!

I’m Nicole, a born and raised California girl, self-proclaimed root beer connoisseur, wannabe foodie, and North Carolina family photographer. I’m the wife of a handsome soldier and dog-mama to our sweet hound, Nani.

When I’m not behind the camera, or in front of my computer, you can find me cookin’ up new recipes with my hubby, turning the pages of a non-fiction novel, or planning our next adventure.

I believe that our lives are like good novels. Each chapter brings something new. There are beginnings and endings, highs and lows, all important elements that shape the story as a whole. Every life season that we endure is a part of our story and is worthy of documenting.

That’s where I come in. I serve families and couples by empowering them to embrace the beauty in all their life seasons and by giving them the gift of creating a visual legacy in a genuinely joyful and organic way.

As a photographer, I work with clients that yearn to remember the big and small moments that define our lives – a baby’s first breath, little hands that hold our hearts, a tender embrace, the love between siblings, the tears, the laughter, and all the in-between.

Because, while these photos are for you for now, they’re really for them. Your babies. And their babies. These photos create a visual testimony of a life well-lived – they become a piece of your family history, part of our story.

Document your life now, for them later.


Heya! Nicole here. If it’s been awhile since you’ve updated your family photos, or if you’ve entered into a new and exciting life season, drop me note. I would love the opportunity to tell your story! Looking for where to head next?
