Who I am


Hey! Nicole here. This is the part where I talk about me. Growing up I’ve 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 highschool 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’ since 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. I realize that the possibilities ARE endless and why limit myself in photography when I can do it ALL. I won’t be the same pose fits all. I won’t be the same edit fits all. I won’t be the same photographer fits all. When you book a session with me our session will be just the opposite. Unique. Tailored. Limitless. I will listen to your stories, preferences, and suggestions. Your photos will feel exactly like you.
