ABOUT NICOLE (and why she does this)
Nicole is a photographer based in Los Angeles. She has a documentary lifestyle approach to her work and believes in documenting and nourishing the everyday moments in our lives. Whether working in studio or in a client's home, she brings this approach to her work each time she picks up her camera.
She's a coffee shop rebel, where she'll order anything, but coffee. She's laugh a lot, believes in pursuing what makes your heart sing, and is easily distracted by an old box of photos.
why womanhood and motherhood
Because women. Using her camera, especially, to honor Womanhood and Motherhood is important to Nicole because women are notorious for not taking time for themselves, but she believes women in all stages should take time to celebrate where they are in their journeys. Take time to breathe in while pushing through the day's demands. Take time to document their beauty inside and out. Take time to honor those they love and realize how much they are loved in return. Realize it's okay to take time for yourself and allow someone else the chance to celebrate you.
You want photos that are full of life and showcase the love and connection between your loved ones. You enjoy spending time with the people you love, doing the things you love to do and you want photos of these moments. You want to cherish the moments of today, 30 years from now and to be able to pass these memories down to your children. Phrases like "perfectly imperfect" and "a beautiful mess" make you smile. For your personal photography, you've been looking for (in your words) "something different."
