i document the life of mothers and fathers

love becomes family | adventure awaits | your story matters

we are mosaics - pieces of light,
love, history, stars -
glued together with magic
and music and words.

Making the decision to have a child – it is momentous.

It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.

Parenthood Photography

maternity | newborn | families

The documentation of YOU, the parents, with your children! The goofy moments, the tantrums, and sweet in between seemingly mundane elements of life that make up the true memories you will want to remember and share later in life - this is parenthood photography. Those tears and stitches in your side from laughing are what makes your family. We live in a time where everyone owns a camera, but not everyone can tell a story in a single frame or your history is a series of images. Storytelling and connection is my goal behind the lens as I integrate with your family.

Having your history and memories captured and then shared either on your walls or in a book is the greatest reminder of joy on a daily basis. Exist is images with your children. Show them a new perspective where you all are part of the history and art of your one of a kind family. 


my approach

I fall in line as a member of your family and document in a photo-journalistic style. This means that I do not alter your home, choreograph, pose, or help you choose outfits. I capture your real everyday life how it unfolds.

Why?

Because we can all take a quick image of our children, or pay for those school photos, but I want to photograph your family's personality and connections. Each member of your family interacts and loves one another in their own special way - this is powerful magic! My goal is for you to authentically exist in photos with your children, for you and for them!

As they get older, they will look for images of you, what will they find?

how it works

the boldparenthood experience is unparalleled in client service and product offerings

nicoleinbold is a full service photographer, which simply means that I do not snap photos and hand you a CD. My goal is to provide you with custom artwork of your family's love story, full of natural connection and organic moments. I offer prints, folio boxes, framed imagery, specialty items, and of course digital files. I feel strongly that it is important for you to be an integral part of preserving and safe guarding your story. I also understand the importance of your want to share images as you see fit. Digital files, however, should not be the objective of custom photography. I want you to display your images throughout your homes so your children and even grandchildren can share your history and stories for years to come!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is documentary photography? ...

Documentary photography, very simply, is the documentation of your authentic and unscripted lives. The hilarious gut busting goofiness, the frustration of tantrums, and everything in between. That five minute impromptu snuggle party or the messy adventure of trying to cook with littles in the kitchen.

Documentarty photography is life. Sessions can be an hour long, half day, or a full day.

Hiring a professional means you are working with someone who knows and understands lighting, composition, and how to freeze emotion with a click of a button. No more posed and stiff images, your life is fun and full of surprises, I want to capture those everyday moments!

How much does parenthood photography cost? ...

The Session Fees begin at 125 for an hour together and range based on how long we are together and if you would like to add video. The retainer is due to lock your session in on my calendar. This fee does not include products or digital files. Clients typcially spend 1500-2500.

Will we meet beforehand? ...

This is up to you. We can chat over the phone or meet in person to discuss your wishes and expectations. It is important to me that we work well together, as documentary sessions are often in your home over a period of a few hours. I want to be able to answer not only your questions, but the questions of your partner, and have an understanding of your daily routine and quirks you would like me to keep an eye out for. My goal is to walk into your home a friend rather than a stranger!

What if I don't want my images on the internet? ...

I 100% respect your wish for privacy!

What, in detail, do you photograph? ...

I photograph emotions, connections, moments, and your story as it unfolds.

Do you offer newborn and maternity sessions? ...

I do! There is nothing more gratifying than watching a family grow into and through their parenthood journey! All sessions have a documentary approach.
