Dance, Dreams, and a Nikon

NEHAMASHOTS CHICAGO IL WEDDING, DANCE, AND SENIOR GRADUATE  PHOTOGRAPHER - PHOTOGRAPHING A WEDDING

Who I am


Hey, Nicole here. This is the part where I talk about myself. Growing up, I always immersed myself in the world of fine arts. I daydreamed of becoming a painter, a fashion designer, and even a vet! I ended up pursuing concert dance throughout my high school and college years. As I matured, one thing stayed consistent – I could never put down that beginner Nikon camera.


Instagram wasn't established when I first started shooting around the age of 15, but you could "Become a Fan" of my newly opened Nehamashots page on Facebook. I began photographing dancers because it's what I knew and loved. In my brain, the possibilities were endless of what I could capture while I was behind the camera.


Fast forward to today, and I realize that the possibilities are endless, so why limit myself in photography when I can do it all? When you book a session with me, our session will be unique and tailored. I will listen to your stories, preferences, and suggestions. Your photos will feel exactly like you.

JUST THE FACTS


I picked up my Nikon at 15, and now I'm a 30 year old wedding & dance photographer in Chicago, IL. I'm an Illinois native who grew up at your local dance studio. A University of Arizona graduate, who chopped her hair, turned female entrepreneur.
