Hi! I'm so glad you're here
I'm Nicole, a lifestyle photographer based in New Jersey.
I specialize in family photography, which includes maternity, newborn, milestone, and family sessions. I also do small events, such as baby or bridal showers. If you have other photography needs, don't hesitate to reach out - let's see if we can work together or if I can recommend you to some other amazing local photographers!
My husband, John, and I have two kids and a sweet lab mix rescue dog. I've had a passion for photography for as long as I can remember. We started this business after having our first child, and constantly wanting to document all of his growth and special moments. In the beginning, John accompanied me on all of the shoots and helped with creative direction (thus, Photography by Nicole & John became our name). Now, he helps mostly with the behind the scenes stuff - like the business side, website updates, etc.
If you choose to work with me for your photography session, I will go over all of the important details in a phone call and/or email prior to our session. We will chat about what you're looking for, how long you can expect the photoshoot to last, pricing, number of images received, and what to wear! I love to capture candid images, with real life emotions and interactions. I've learned how to give prompts to help you feel comfortable, while still photographing you in a very real, genuine moment. You can see lots of example of my work here, and on my social media sites.
I am so excited for the chance to photograph your family and can't wait to hear from you!
