PHOTOGRAPHY FOR THE DREAMERS, THE FREE SPIRITS, THE ONES WHO FIND BEAUTY IN THE QUIET.

• SOCIAL •

• hey y'all! •

I'm Nicole! I'm a Southern-bred, Chicago-based photographer specializing in intimate weddings, elopements, and portraits. You can probably find me on my couch with a cup of hot tea in hand, working on a crossword puzzle and watching Parks and Rec reruns. 

Here's what you should know about me:
ISTJ. Old soul. Broadway and board game fanatic. Enamored with all things French. Chronic movie-sleeper. Lefty. Gryffindor. Auburn Alum. Wannabe baker. Creature of habit. Lover of the mountains. Avid list-maker. Single-handedly keeping the Paleo Cookie Company in business since 2016. 

My story 

• details •

My goal for every photo I take is authenticity and believability. I put you in the best light and best position and then I step back so that I can capture you being you. I want to be a fly on the wall, peeking in and capturing candid emotions as they happen because I believe that those genuine moments are the most memorable and timeless.

I also want my photos to exude a sense of soft quietness and peaceful elegance. Because in a world that's rather loud, I believe that the most beautiful things are found hiding in the peace and quiet.  

I'm obsessed with neutral backgrounds, anything gold and/or glittery, city views, stairs and doors, blush pink, lace, and lush florals. Soooo if you want to incorporate any of those things in your session, I will be doing happy dances behind my camera ;)
