"Nicolette has the ability to reach deep inside of you and bring out the true essence of beauty"

Los Angeles portrait photographer

Welcome to my site!


I’m a portrait and event photographer based in Los Angeles. 


I fell in love with the emotional power of photography as a child by leafing through my parents' copies of National Geographic Magazine. I then discovered Vanity Fair, Life and the incredible visual work being created by the great names in fashion and advertising.

Although I took photo classes in college, I went on to a career in publishing and sales, and in 2008 was certified as a life coach. But as I approached my forties, I decided to bite the proverbial bullet, and make a go of creating a business that would marry my artistic passion with an innate ability to help others express their best selves.

Photography combines my love of beauty, my life-coaching skills and my desire to empower others to express their own excellence. I strive to create moments in time that leave my clients looking and feeling absolutely amazing for being who they are. 

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. 


So I invite you to book a session with me, I promise you’ll love the results.

It might even change the way you see yourself.
