Motherhood is hard, but your home is your soft place to land. This is why I believe photographing you with your people in your space is the most honest and thoughtful way to tell your story. I’m not seeking perfection - I’m here for the beauty in the mundane, the magic in the ordinary. I approach sessions with calm and thoughtful intention. Before your session we’ll talk about your family’s style, what makes you unique and what you love to do together as a family. The session will be loosely planned around some of your favorite activities, yet it will be unscripted and unposed. This is my favorite way to capture a family - as the beautiful, silly, simple moments of your story naturally unfold.

My business was born in 2013 out of a passion for photography, storytelling and a desire for intentional living. My work is about shining a light on all the beauty you’re creating in your home and helping you see it. The images we document together are my gift to you! I’m honored to have had my work published in several regional and national publications, and named Best Wedding Photographer by Hudson Valley Magazine. named me Best Newborn Photographer and Best Maternity Photographer in New York City.

My Approach

My Work

Hi, I’m Nicole! I’m a Hudson Valley based wedding and motherhood photographer dedicated to telling stories through thoughtful and honest photos. I’m equal parts homebody and outdoor enthusiast - whether at home with my husband and two kiddos or in a tent on one of our cross country family road trips, together is our favorite place to be.

what sparks my joy


I’m the wife of a firefighter/self-trained carpenter. We have two little loves, Penelope and River, and together is our favorite place to be!


My love story began in the Rocky Mountains where Matt introduced me to backcountry camping, skiing some of the world’s best terrain and exploring as many creeks, valleys and peaks in between. It was on a month-long road trip throughout the west that we decided when we did have kids, we would start from scratch and visit every state and national park (by car) as a family. Fast forward to today and we’re living that dream!


I believe in living a simple, grateful life. And by giving back, I’m able to show how truly grateful I am. I’m a member of The Gold Hope Project, a group of photographers donating services to families battling pediatric cancer. I also volunteer my time to Moms Demand Action, Live Girl, and my local school community. And as a family, each year we make a donation to Protect Our Winters.
