To others, I might be known as Nicole, Wifey, Momma, or even daughter, friend, sister. I am a proud wife of a military veteran who just retired after spending 20 years serving our country and protecting our freedoms. I am a momma to a boy and a girl who constantly keep me running. They are also the reason I color my hair and am so passionate about what I do. I know what it's like to try and get your own littles, a hubby whos not a fan of taking pix, and yourself ready to have keepsakes hanging up and down your halls. So come on momma, here's a little more about me.
I am a country farm kid at heart. I love being outdoors, and you usually can find us on family days riding around the countryside on our four-wheelers. I started my photography journey into a business when my husband was stationed in Devils Lake, ND, then rebranding and recreated my vision when we moved to Bismarck in 2016. 2017 was the year we welcomed our youngest, our spitfire, our wild-child. The little girl who will one day rule this world. It's also the year that my sweet, sensitive, and oldest came into our room on day, and shook my world. On my nightstand, I have a picture from my college graduation (all those years ago), of my paternal grandparents. My grandma passed away a couple of months before our wedding, so my oldest never meet her. But he looked at the picture and looked at me and spoke the words that are now a foundation to my business. "Momma, that's great-grandma in that picture with you and great papa, and she's up in heaven, dancing with GOD".
After the tears had stopped (I was so close to my Grandma, and to know my son can still know who she is, warms my heart), I KNEW that this needed to be the foundation behind my business. To give our generations to come, tangible keepsakes, those happy memories, those warm fuzzies of who they came from. It's the heart and soul that I put into each of my sessions so that you are able to leave the worries behind in our session, and just be your TRUE YOU.
These two are my why. The reason that I make sure that each session I do gives another momma the same keepsakes that I cherish with mine. Why I know that it seems like each day that you blink and your little seems to have grown another year. They are the reason that each year, my family pictures on our wall get updated. So when they are grown and those that we love may have gone to heaven, they will have these keepsakes to know them. That even when days feel so crazy and hectic, they are my grounding source.
