We have done several shoots with Nicole and every time she made us all laugh and feel completely at ease. Doing a photo shoot with Nicole is such a fun and easy experience! She even made my camera shy husband smile. During my second pregnancy photo shoot she made me feel downright glamorous! I am so happy to have such gorgeous photos of my baby bumps and family.

Nicole is in a caliber far above any other photographer with whom I have worked with. She is talented, passionate, unbelievably patient and utterly professional. Her work ethic is impeccable and her dedication to her clients is second to none. She customizes the entire experience to make it lovely and memorable for you. I look forward to working with her again in the future!

During our consultation, Nicole had an uncanny ability to be open and light while maintaining a confidant and professional air which I found so comforting. During the shoot she made each person feel relaxed. My six year old son even impersonated a well behaved kid in order to impress Nicole. She produced a truly awesome set of frame ready portraits that now adorn my home and office. She provided so many little extras and even drove to my house to drop everything off in person. I can't wait for Nicole to help capture our next family session.
