AboutNicole

BEC LEADER & Mentor

Hey future friend! I am Nicole, a Published Emotive Lifestyle photographer in Northern Virginia + beyond. I focus on seamlessly capturing authentic moments in life. Those moments that we often overlook. My style has a mix of bold colors with a slight touch of moodiness. I love dramatic skies and fields of tall grass with a beautiful sunset in the background. I am a mom, friend, and adventure seeker. I specialize in Family, Newborn, and Maternity Lifestyle Photography, but if you ask me to capture your elopement, I will be on cloud nine! Now, let's talk about my passion that turned into my full time job. Just like most of the artists I have met, for me it all started in 2017 when my daughter was born. Just the thought of her growing up made my mama heart hurt. I wanted to freeze time but I had no clue how. I wanted to hold on to even the littlest moments. One day, I picked up my brand new camera that was still in a box collecting dust in my closet and I just completely fell in love. I discovered the art of storytelling through photos and started creating my own little memories. It almost felt like I was freezing time. I started capturing every single moment of my journey as a new mom and of course every milestone in my daughter's life. My camera became my little escape. I have never put it down after that. Now, here we are not only capturing my own memories as mama of two, but also doing the same for others. I believe every mama out there deserves beautiful memories of their tiny humans, because believe me when I say, "The days are long but the years go by so fast".

Be Bold.

Do you think consistency is important?

 

In my opinion, yes. ABSOLUTELY. Consistency is the critical driver for success. Being consistent means dedicating yourself to your GOALS and staying focused on the things and activities to achieve YOUR goals. Consistency requires a long-term commitment from you and involves sustained EFFORT in doing actions repeatedly until you achieve your goals.

 

When you workout for example they say it takes 4 weeks for you to notice your body changing, 8 weeks for your friends to notice, and 12 weeks for the rest of the world to notice. Same with photography. It is all about consistency. Practice what you learn every day. Create something new every week. Step out of your comfort zone. I can give you every tool and tell you every skill I know, but if you are not consistency and committed to improving, then nothing will change. Give it time but stay consistent. I am here for you to make sure you don't quit. 

 

 This is just the beginning of your journey.
