You Might Be My Client If:

"Nicole captured the TRUE essence of my child's personality"

"Her amazing talent and use of the warm summer sun resulted in the most beautiful moments. These are photos that I will treasure forever. Nicole is talented, and her smile and personality make you feel like you've known her for years. She was great with my daughter, and I just sat back and watched the two of them make absolute magic on the beach." Audrey

If you're looking for urban style portraits with bright lights, rigid posing, and not a single hair out of place, I'm probably not your girl...and that's totally okay!

My photography and posing approach is fluid and natural. You'll leave your session feeling like a Free People model: ocean breeze in your hair, wildflowers in hand, ready to adventure!

My goal is to make your photoshoot a fun, memorable, and confidence-boosting experience...because this is so much more than just pretty photos!

naturally beautiful, free-spirited vibes

before we dive into the details, I want to say i'm not the photographer for everyone. 

Before your photoshoot, you'll be sent a "what to wear guide" and you'll have access to all my Pinterest boards for inspo!

I'm not only here as your photographer, but also your friend! I'm here to give advice on things like hair, makeup, and cute dresses. I'm the one cheering you on when you found the perfect outfit (and you'll most likely hear me say "SOOO CUTEEE" about a hundred times). Basically, you're never left hangin' and trying to figure it out by yourself...I've got your back!

planning your session

During your session, we'll play your fave songs on my bluetooth speaker, and spend time chatting and hanging out while doing gorgeous and natural poses. Your true beauty shines the most when you're having fun! I'll fix your dress if the breeze is awkwardly catching it and remind you to do a lipgloss refresh. If you want to jump in the ocean for a few photos at the end, you bet I'll be jumping in right behind ya!

"she made me laugh so many times during my session and I had a blast with her!"

“The atmosphere Nicole creates is fun, upbeat, and relaxed and she takes the pressure off of having a camera on you. The genuine good time you have with her really shines through in the pictures she takes. You get a fun time AND a positive experience and nothing less than absolutely BEAUTIFUL photos.  I love working with Nicole so much and I'm so excited to have more photoshoots with her in the future!"

Where are you located?

I am based in Ocean City, NJ and surrounding South Jersey towns!

Do You Give Out Unedited Photos?

I don’t provide unedited or .RAW files for 2 main reasons. The .RAW images are files are straight from my camera & untouched. Therefore, they are not edited and they don't represent my work as a photographer. I like to use the analogy of a painting. At this stage, only the canvas is prepped.

It also takes professional software to convert them into an image so that you can view it on your screen.  The file sizes are huge. Converting these files is part of the service you paid for. That way, all you have to do is download your final edited gallery.

How Does Payment Work?

Your retainer fee is due upon booking to hold your date. Your remaining session fee must be paid in full 5 days before your photoshoot date. Invoices will be emailed to you.

I have been a photographer since 2010! I love working with teens and capturing this special time in their lives.
