Nicole just did our newborn photos for our son and did an incredible job! She kept him warm and snuggly and was incredibly patient when he was fussy. Can’t wait to use her again for family photos once our Charlie is a little older :) More...

Nicole did mine and my fiancé, Tyler’s engagement pictures at Garden of the Gods in Colorado. It was the best experience we have ever had and we would highly recommend Nicole to anyone seeking beautiful and professional pictures done! She is so incredibly sweet and takes the time out of her day to find the most perfect spot, gets the most perfect pictures, and made us feel so comfortable and happy. Even with multiple rain delays and rescheduling, Nicole worked to the best of her ability to accommodate all of our wishes and captured our love for one another. I am so grateful for this wonderful lady and I hope others are as blessed as we were to have her as their photographer! (: More...

In a time when I was stressing over my husband finally coming home after a year, the last thing I wanted to worry about was who was I going to get to take photos for me that would be patient, understanding, and a great shot while already knowing what I wanted in pictures, and Nicole covered all of those things PLUS a lot more! No words describe the love I have for our pictures I now cherish and will work with her again! More...

Nicole is great! She is very patient with little ones and always makes her photo shoots fun. My favorite part of getting pictures done with Nicole is that she really loves what she does and her positive attitude puts everyone in a good mood. Also pricing is VERY reasonable. I love that we found her and would Definitely recommend. More...

I work at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs and we had Nicole bring her photo booth to an event my office hosted during our welcome week activities. Nicole was beyond easy to work with, especially being at a public university that has some extra loopholes to jump through. She was so quick to respond, easy to negotiate a contract with, and her prices were more than reasonable!

At our event, Nicole and her daughter were AMAZING!! They brought so many different props for students to take pictures with and were great interacting with students taking pictures and waiting in line. I definitely foresee my office using Nicole's photo booth in the future and I would definitely recommend her to anybody and everybody!!

You are always so great with my kids and when talking to me as well. We have come on hard times, and for the hollowed one I o ly had 8$ not the full 10, and you gave me a beautiful picture of my girls anyway. Because of that I made sure to budget you in for christmas, and we will definitely be back again!!

Thanks for taking the picture of our girls without forcing them to sit with Santa. Madison was standing and was just as happy to be with Santa. We appreciate your quick thinking.

We had Nicole come and set up her photo booth for a Chick-fil-A daddy daughter event we had. From the moment I contacted her she was quick to reply, she was so organized and was super generous with her time and allowed our event guests to visit the booth multiple times. It was such a fun touch to our event! Icing on the cake- her pricing was soooo reasonable compared to other photo booth rental places I had researched. Nicole is a professional through and through!

Capturing the true essence of the individual’s personality is exactly what creates a beautiful portrait.

Upon meeting or having a conversation on the phone, I like to ask questions about my potential client’s goals for the photo session. What is their vision? How do they see the session progress? What locations are important to them? These are just a few intro questions to get to know my client better.

I absolutely love meeting new people and being able to offer them something as special as a professional portrait for them to admire and cherish for years to come.

I saw others being successful at this amd it was inspiring. Mostly though I saw disappointed families coming to me saying they spent quite a bit of money on a session only to be unsatisfied with the result. The people I met and their stores inspired me to get out there and do better for them.

I always make my customer number one. I did not get into this business for the money or recognition. I got into this business to create lifelong portraiture that my clients could be proud of, the kind of photographs that bring tears to their eyes. Pure joy and satisfaction are my priorities.


Everything from headshots and birthday sessions to families and large group shots, I offer wide variety of options for your portrait needs. Starting at $50

Full sessions on location in Colorado Springs. Favorite places include Red Rocks Canyon Open Space, Rock Ledge Ranch, and Fountain Creek Regional Park. I shoot all over town and never charge location fees within the city limits.
