I'M SO HAPPY YOU'RE HERE!

WELCOME

I'm Nickole, I'm known for my infectious laugh and constant smile! I'm wife to a hard working Blue-Collar laborer, a mama to my 18 year old Son, and my 14 & 11 year old daughters, obsessed with iced latte's, a lover of laughter, and a real BIG fan of keeping it real!

I was born & raised in Ridgecrest, CA. where my creative soul has grown to love our gorgeous Desert landscape.

let's talk!

I've yet to find a combination of words that do justice, what it feels like, to be this kind of alive!

MY STORY

I started my interest in photography at the ripe age of 22. I took a b&W photography class at my local Community College BUT I didn't continue with it until 2007 or so when I started taking more interest in capturing my son. At that point in my life I had a 3 year old and one on the way. I used what I knew and taught myself more. I paid and continue to pay for education on the new & the now. Even though I photograph love for a living, I also have so much more depth to my story and who I am.

What I've learned about Photography is that yes, everyone can take a picture with a camera but not everyone is creative with it. I FEEL through my lens and capture all the emotions in every image I shoot, visualizing every shot before I even press the button.

The scariest moment is always just before you start.

MY VISION

I believe in all things filled with emotion. I focus deeply on documenting the connection between you and the ones you love. I strive to capture the purity of the love, the gorgeous amber light, the real connections and movements in everyone's session. Your life is a story and I'm here to document a little piece of it.

This world is full of so many distractions and I want to capture what will mean most in those times where distractions and life’s busyness may come to take your focus. Documenting moments to look back on that will make you FEEL that moment, time and time again, is my greatest joy in this business.

We ALL have a story worth telling, I'd love to be the one to capture yours and what makes YOU so unique.

Love & Laughter...Nickole

HE'S MY BEST FRIEND

THIS IS WES!

He's responsible for the start of this journey!

We knew eachother from High School and he was actually my first kiss. In 2020, we reconnected in the parking lot of Walmart, where I was working time at the time.

We got married in June of 2007.

He is the one responsible for this entire business. He bought me my first camera as a wedding present and causally mentioned that I was interested in getting into photography as a hobby.

He's my biggest supporter!

Time isn’t precious at all, because it is an illusion.

What you perceive as precious is not time but that ONE moment within Time: the Now!

The more focused you are on time — past and future — the more you miss the present, the most precious thing there is.
