You want photos that are full of life and showcase the love and connection between your loved ones. You want to cherish the moments of today, 30 years from now and to be able to share these memories with those around you. For your personal photography, you've been looking for (in your own words) "something different." Phrases like "perfectly imperfect" and "a beautiful mess" make you smile.

You’re ready to see yourself as the beautiful artwork you already are.

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:

Nicole chooses this type of photography, focusing on womanhood, especially, because she wants to give women a reason to celebrate themselves, their journeys, their stories. Photography like this allows you, not only, to feel beautiful and document your story, but it's also a chance to see how greatly you love and how very much you are loved in return, just as you are.

We offer portrait photography to honor and celebrate you as a woman, as a mother, as a family, as an entrepreneur, as a creative, right where you are in your journey. Portrait sessions are held in studio or in your office space and provides you with beautiful imagery that honors the essence of you or your brand. 

documentary style

Documentary sessions take place in your home, office space, or studio. We capture the essence of you, your family, or your brand in your element doing your thing. Guidance may be provided, but there's usually little to no posing involved, so it's the perfect session for the family or brand who's looking for a more relaxed, in-the-moment, candid style of imagery.
