"Nicolette has the ability to reach deep inside of you and bring out the true essence of beauty"
~ Annette G.
Los Angeles portrait photographer
Hello and welcome to my site!
Growing up, I fell in love with the emotional power of photography while leafing through my parents' copies of National Geographic magazine. Later I discovered Vanity Fair, Glamour, Vogue and the incredible editorial portraits being created by the great names in fashion and advertising. And as I studied photography and started shooting friends and family, I wanted to find ways to offer magazine-style photoshoots and beautiful, creative portraits to every day people.
In my late thirties, I decided to bite the proverbial bullet, and walked away from a high stress, unfulfilling career in sales to launch my own business. I realized that if I was going to feel that stressed out and work that hard, it should be for my own dreams. Fail or succeed.
Today, I combine my love of photography, my certified life-coaching skills and a deep desire to empower others to express their own excellence, to create moments in time that leave my clients looking and feeling absolutely amazing.
It doesn’t matter if you’re a seasoned pro at being photographed or you’re someone who hates to be in front of the camera, I'll create a safe, nurturing space where you can show off your style and personality in unique and captivating ways.
I believe you deserve to work with a photographer who will spend the time to get to know you, and understand how you want to showcase your story to the world. I believe you deserve to love how you look in your photos. And I believe the experience of being photographed should be both fun and make you feel like you are the most important person in the room.
On my spare days you'll find me outdoors with my feet in the sand or my hands in the dirt. I travel as much as possible and love to laugh. I'm a proud member of and advocate for the LGBTQ community and volunteer my services for the LA GAY Center.
Thank you for your visit, I look forward to getting to know you!
