HI THERE! THANKS FOR STOPPING BY. I USED TO HAVE A PROFESSIONAL HEADSHOT HERE TO INTRODUCE MYSELF, BUT I REALIZED THIS IMAGE BETTER PORTRAYS WHO I AM IN THE DAY-TO-DAY.

WHEN I’M NOT CHASING AFTER KIDDOS IN A NEARBY PARK AT GOLDEN HOUR, YOU CAN FIND ME WARDING MY COFFEE FROM TINY HANDS AND HANGING OUT IN COMFY CLOTHES WITH MY RESCUE DOG FROM MEXICO. I LOVE TO TRAVEL THE WORLD, AND I HAVE SOLO BACKPACKED THROUGH OVER A DOZEN COUNTRIES IN THE LAST FEW YEARS.

SO, WHAT MAKES ME DIFFERENT FROM ALL THE OTHER SEATTLE-AREA PHOTOGRAPHERS? I LIKE TO THINK MY JOKES ARE FUNNIER, BUT THE REALITY IS THAT I HAVE OVER 15 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE WORKING WITH CHILDREN. THIS HAS INCLUDED TIME AS A NEWBORN CARE SPECIALIST, NANNY/HOUSEHOLD MANAGER, AND WORKING AT SEATTLE CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL. IN ADDITION TO THESE CAREERS, I SPENT TIME VOLUNTEERING IN AN ORPHANAGE IN MOROCCO AND AS A BIG SISTER WITH BIG BROTHERS BIG SISTERS OF PUGET SOUND AMONG OTHERS.

BASICALLY, I LOVE KIDS. THIS LOVE COMES OUT IN MY INTERACTIONS WITH FAMILIES AND ALLOWS ME TO CAPTURE GENUINE SMILES. I AM COMFORTABLE AND EXCITED TO WORK WITH ALL DIFFERENT TYPES OF FAMILIES (L.G.B.T.Q.I.A+, SINGLE CHOICE PARENTS), AND I HAVE EXPERIENCE WITH SPECIAL NEEDS AND MEDICALLY COMPLEX CHILDREN.

SHOOT ME A MESSAGE AND LET ME KNOW A BIT MORE ABOUT WHAT YOU’RE LOOKING FOR. I LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING FROM YOU!

Seattle, wa

Capturing unique memories that are natural and authentic to your story.

Thanks for stopping by! I’m so glad you’re here. While my main role as a Seattle-area photographer is to document your family, I know what life is like with littles. You can often find me getting a snack ready for a toddler while a parent finishes getting ready, or cheering on a new parent as they learn to swaddle their brand new babe for the first time.

As a Bastyr-trained birth doula, newborn care specialist, and a prior nanny of fifteen years, I live for helping families. I believe all stories scream to be captured, and that families come in all different shapes and sizes. Perhaps you’ve battled infertility for years and want to capture the little one that made you a warrior. Or maybe you’re beginning a new chapter with a big, beautiful blended family.

I’ve got you, and I can’t wait to help document your story.

About Me

 

Hi, I'm Nicole

When I’m not chasing after kiddos in a nearby park at golden hour or welcoming a new baby at a birth center, you can find me hanging out in comfy clothes with my pups at home while we re-watch Call the Midwife. I’m a Type One Enneagram with a dry sense of humor and a deep love for all living things.

I love to travel the world, and I have solo backpacked through over a dozen countries in the last few years. One of the best meals I ate was on a curb in Thailand for ten cents! And one of the best moments was my surprise engagement in Corfu, Greece in 2019. (I said yes!)

So, what makes me different from all of the other Seattle-area photographers? I like to think my jokes are funnier... But the reality is that I have over 15 years of experience working with children. Ultimately, I love kids. This love comes out in my interactions with families and allows me to capture genuine moments. This love also runs deep into my bones as we look forward to beginning our own family in our home north of Seattle.
