Hey, I’m Nicole! I am your local natural-light portrait photographer! I was born and raised in Davenport, Iowa, and though I love traveling, I couldn’t see myself living anywhere else. I’m a cat mom, I live for sunsets, and I have an unhealthy obsession with ice cream. It’s delicious! 

In addition to being a portrait photographer, I am also a nanny to a family with four kids and have worked in the childcare field for over 13 years. As you can imagine, my experience and skills in childcare comes in handy when working with - and photographing - children!

My love of photography began in a small photography and film class in high school. We were taught composition, how to set up our shot, and how to develop our own film into prints. A lot has changed since then, with the popularity of all things digital, but my love and appreciation for photography has only grown. My camera rarely leaves my side and my friends can’t take me anywhere where I won’t find a location I want to use or a fun item I can picture using as a prop (my friends hate when I announce aloud in stores “I could put a baby in that!”).

Now let’s talk about your session! When you choose me to document your memories, you will receive a session that is as unique as you are. I am excited to get to know you and help you with all of the details that go into your portrait session from choosing the perfect location to selecting the right attire! I want your session to be relaxing, fun, and memorable! Whether you like the structured and posed look, or the carefree candid, I guarantee that your portraits will have the feel you desire.
