My name is Nicole and I am a Wife as well as a mother to two beautiful children of my own. I know that the journey to becoming a mum is not always easy and it's rarely perfect...… But I also know that this journey is what makes holding your precious little bundle in your arms even more beautiful.
Every Mum has her our own story and journey into motherhood and I would love to document yours and capture all these special memories to last a lifetime. Having been there before - feeling the first kicks, hearing your baby cry for the first time, bringing your precious baby home. I remember all these experiences like it was yesterday and it is this experiences that I successfully use to enable me to relate to you, capture emotions and create gorgeous works of art.
I understand just how precious the arrival of a new baby is, I enjoy creating beautiful images for you ensuring these memories are captured and will last a lifetime.
Around 12 years ago I developed a particular interest in photographing newborns and decided to specialize in this area, which was at the time was quite a new area of photography, in Scotland. As such, I am one of the most experienced newborn photographers in Falkirk/ Lothians area. I specialise in newborn photography, because I love newborns and find them a joy to work with.
I am a qualified member of The Society of Wedding & Portrait Photographers, The Guild of Photographers and the British Association of Newborn Photographers. I also have a BA(hons) in Media from my time spent studying at university so I am fully qualified to be your photographer. I have won a vast amount of awards throughout my photography journey and I was delighted to be placed 3rd amongst fellow international photographers in the multi-genre category of Photographer of the Year with the Guild of Photographers 2014
I work in a professional studio environment, where I can safely control levels of temperature, sound and light to ensure as successful a session as possible. My clients love getting out of the house, escaping the visitors and spending the day in my relaxed studio environment. Because sessions are held in this studio setting, it allows me to put to use of my extensive range of props and adorable baby accessories of your choice.
For many reasons the ideal time for newborn baby photography is before your baby is 10 days new. This can be slightly later for premature or special care babies and early as possible for larger or overdue babies. New mums are advised to book during their pregnancy, perhaps after their 1st scan. So I can reserve some time in my schedule especially for when your baby arrives an exact date is confirmed once baby has arrived ! I do prioritise for newborns, so may be able to fit you in if you've just had your baby.
