Working with me, I want you to accept yourself as you are. Mom, dad, and child. This is the most difficult thing in the world, because it goes against our training, education, and culture. From our inception we have received messages of how we should be, with very few telling us that we are good as we are. I want to be a voice, with my camera, in your life that says you are good, you are worthy, and you fucking rock! Right here! Right now! With every session, my ultimate goal is to collaborate with you and create images for you. Not social media, not strangers on the internet, but for you and your family. The stills and motion we capture together will showcase your one of a kind life. The calm before the adventure, the chaos of having fun, and the epic-ness of unrefined living. We will work together to create art so you can remember your life and show your kids that you existed with them.

"I was sitting in the living room with tears streaming down my face looking through the photos of Ronan's birth last night. They are by far one of the most cherished material things we have and are backed up at least 4 places.
Having your support as a fellow mom- having had been in my shoes- and willing to share your empathy, wisdom, and compassion on that day was tremendous. You'll never know my full gratitude!"

I truly cannot say enough positive things about the images that Nicole produced for our family. As a photographer myself, I knew I needed the perfect lifestyle images after my little bundle of joy came into this world so that I could actually be in front of the camera with my family! Nicole was exactly the person and professional I was looking for. Her images are STUNNING and showcase the little in-between moments of our lives. I'm thrilled to have these images of our new family of 3 documented. If you're looking for a documentary-style photographer - she's the best!

Nicole is truly the most incredibly photographer! She has an amazing eye, and was able to capture the most intense RAW moments of my 2nd daughter's pregnancy, birth, and early days. She caught HAUNTINGLY BEAUTIFUL pictures of my oldest daughter that seem to look right into her soul. She captured JOY and LOVE in my husband. Nicole is the most honest, straight forward, gentle, passionate, and crazy cool photographer you could imagine!

Nicole captured my pregnancy in an incredibly unique, artistic, and intimate way. Scheduling and talking about our creative vision was easy and straightforward. Her eye for the perfect shot is breathtaking. I’m so grateful I chose NicoleinBold for my maternity photo session, I truly cherish my pictures.

Let's Be Friends
I believe every family has their own story to tell that is unique. I love serving families that enjoy life, are busy but connected with each other, and are willing to have their lives documented in an authentically honest way. In this first step, we will determine if we are a perfect fit! After getting to know you online, we will them move forward with the booking process.
On The Calendar
Whoop! You are now a Bold Family! It is time to determine when we are going to photograph your family. I will send you a custom online booking proposal where you will review the collections, pay the creative fee, and make everything official!!
Before The Action
Documentary family photography is unposed, unscripted, unfiltered, and a lot of fun! Before our time together I am available to you to answer all your questions. A huge key to our success together is letting go of judgment. Your children love you and will remember you just as you are, reading this right now. Your untidy chaos is your life. My goal is to photograph for you and your story, not social media and grandma!
Your Epic Life
It’s here! It’s session day!! The best part of documentary photography is that you don’t have to worry about outfits. We have already determined the flow of your day, potential activities, start, and stop times. So your job is to be you. When I arrive we will do introductions. I will get on the kids level and integrate into your family. My favorite part is capturing life how your children see it and you!
After our time together you will receive an online gallery with your adventure inside! This gallery is available to you for a limited time with full access to me to answer any of your questions. I encourage you to it down by yourself or with your partner to relive your life. Then sit down to relive those memories again with your children.
Embrace Your Adventure
My ultimate goal in working with you and your family is for you to gain confidence and own your story in a tangible way. We don’t know that we are missing courage or confidence in ourselves until we see our life reflected back at us. By photographing parenthood from the children’s perspective, parents and children see themselves in a new light. It is an amazing transformation and one I hope you may keep fresh with an album or wall art to reminisce on good days, rainy days, and tough days.
