I believe 


are eternal

about Nicole

I am a born and bred Chula Vistan, with my family going back for numerous generations here in the South Bay.  Although I went away to school at UCLA and UCSB and lived in Ventura where I got married to my best friend and had two beautiful daughters, San Diego is where my heart has always been.  This is an amazing place to live and to take pictures!  It is such a blessing for me to be able to interact with amazing families, couples, newborns and seniors as we work together to create beautiful images that will be treasured forever.

I'm a photographer who also happens to be a middle school teacher! both of these activities allow me to do what i love...spend time with really interesting people!

Some of my favorite things...
lighting candles, especially on a cold day
listening to Harry Potter on tape - have you heard Jim Dale read?!
eating gelato and pretending to be in Italy
watching The Crown, This is Us, Victoria, Stranger Things or Downton Abbey
going to the spa with my friends
sitting with my husband, watching the sun go down
Sprinkles cupcakes, especially taste testing them with my girls at the beach

As a teacher, mother, wife, photographer, friend and christian, my world revolves around my family, students, clients, church and three crazy dogs who are convinced they are the center of my universe

Let's get better acquainted...

My philosophy is simple. Life is short and you need to spend it with the ones you love.  Images capture the moments we want to treasure forever.  Love daily and intentionally with all of your heart and soul.
