I am NicCole, the creative ADD brain behind the lens here at NicCole Photography. I am a creator by nature and birth. My grandmother who called me NicCole, not Brandy (my first name) beacuse that was liquid sin, was an amazing artist and passed the bug down to me. I am an artist, my D5 just happens to be my medium of choice these days. In my past life I was a platform artist for Scruples and flexed my creative muscles behind the chair coloring and cutting hair 20+ years.
The cornerstone of NicCole Photography has always been our beautiful expecting mothers.
The studio has a collection of amazing maternity gowns or you may bring your own. We let mom choose 5 gowns and we shoot with three of those. Dad and children are welcome to join in your session for shots. We like to photograph our expecting mothers at 32-34 weeks however this is not set in stone. Some moms prefer to shoot a wee little baby bump.
We have several options for locations. We can shoot here at the studio which gives us the ability to be inside and out. We shoot on location. Our water shots are on location. We also have had moms on bed rest and we come to you... I was a mom on bed rest and I would never want a mom to miss out on maternity portraits because of that.

Congratulations babe is here! We are on the edge of our seats to me your new addition. We like to photograph our newborns at 5-10 days new ideally, however we are not locked into this time frame. Some moms like to keep baby inside for a bit longer, I get it. There are a few reasons earlier is better. Wee babies still we get really curly for shots. They haven't started cluster feeding in that first week, usually, and lets face it we wanna cuddle that sweet babe.
The studio does offer newborn props, headbands and wraps to give your baby the most amazing first portrait session. Sessions include baby alone, family, baby with siblings and baby with each parent. We also have a limited studio wardbrobe for siblings and new moms.
We can shoot baby in the studio or in your home. Home sessions are a bit more lifestyle with less props and more snuggling.

Organic baby sessions are simple petite newborn sessions. I have come to love the feel of a lifestyle newborn images without props. These sessions are for famillies that want a very simple no frills newborn session.
We photograph the entire family, mom with baby, dad with baby, siblings and images of baby alone.
These sessions are shot here in the studio and require less time than our boutique sessions.
We do have a warbrobe available for mothers.
These sessions do not include baby IN props.
