It was 48 Degrees, with hi winds and it was amoshing ( the kids fashion photographer speak version of “amazing”). I Have know the Semitsu’s for quite some time now. Engagement, wedding, maternity, family, and now visited on family Vacation! #LegacyFamily # Legacyfamily
I have know the Dihns for over 10 years now, They are a Legacy Family, Engagement, wedding, newborn, and family photo shoots. It was such an honor and pleasure to celebrate their 10 year anniversary with a photoshoot in the studio. Here they are in Engagement, Newborn, Wedding, and family studio album.
Different. Let yourself be open to move, to create, to move away from what you see everyday in family photos. To Laugh, to experience, and to remember that experincce with the photos. I am so lucky to have clients that break away from the mold, who want photos that are not like their friends, thank you for loving the different.
While wearing the exact Kimono she wore for her wedding, Sunai showed up to the set like a boss. Bob also brought his a game in a rented white tux. Bob and Sunai were married 50 years ago, and their daughters wanted to give them a photo gift for their anniversary, and try to recreate images they shot in the studio. We shot some 4×5 film portraits, here are the proof sheets, and printing video.
This is the goal of the family photograph, this image.. Seconds before the little one to the right was posing behind Mom and Dad, then decided we got the shots and off she went. Genius. For Safety we stayed one “Zebra” distance away- brilliant reference for the kiddos. I wore a facial covering the whole time, as the family did walking to the spot and back. Thank you! These girls are so fun. Looking forward to working with you again. […]
“You’re the best Nicole, we absolutely love working with you.” – Nayeli I LOVE a classic portrait in the studio, simple, no props, well one prop, The bubble machine. It seems more fun for the parents than the kiddos, or perhaps I have the most fun, but the point is, it’s fun. I want the experience to be fun, so when you look back on the photos, you remember that time with your family, how FUN it was.
“Nicole! Every single image is amazing. I love that you captured us just the way we are. Of all the times we’ve taken pictures as a family these are the ones I will truly cherish forever. You are truly gifted <3"- Talyor No Stress. Let you hair down, let the kids be kids, dirty faces, feet, clothes. Be Relaxed. This photoshoot was with my wedding clients Taylor and Spencer whose weedding I shot in San Francisco, and no catching up three kiddos later. We shot this on location at their almond farm in North Central California
pet parentsFirst Time pet parents Lindsay and Kyle came to the studio to celebrate the new member of the family, Emma! #Petparents It was great, Pet Dad Kyle, showed up with Emma’s dog bed, 5 of her toys, her lease, doggy bags, and plenty of treats.
More and More clients are coming to the studio for portraits. It’s nice to see the appreciation of classic portraits resurfacing.
We can control lighting, temperature, and the best part- no other people around to distract or get in your photos.
The studio environment is far from “stuffy” it is relaxed, fun, and air conditioned.
Family photos at The Rio Grande. The Rio Grande bosque spanish for “forest” offers a unique environment in arid Albuquerque. Large cottonwood trees, coyote willow, and New Mexico olive create a cool, shady forest and provide habitat for beaver, numerous bird species, turtles, and snakes. I can tell by the look on Jen’s face, she will not be having me back for family photos. Don’t get me wrong, we took some traditional everyone’s hair brushed, clean clothes photos, but I […]
