I had been admiring Nicole’s Instagram feed for months and dying to learn from her. In July 2022 I got my chance to do a 1:1 mentorship in her studio and it exceeded all my dreams! I had previously attended a maternity workshop and needed some education gaps filled. I feel like she not only filled those gaps for me but changed the game entirely for me and what I thought was possible for my work. I was also thrilled to discover that I didn’t have to invest in any new expensive lighting or equipment to get the look I desired. She didn’t hold anything back and answered every question I had (which was a LOT). Now when I go into a session I not only feel confident but now I know that I’m going to knock it out of the park for my clients, and that is an amazing feeling!

Nicole was able to help me find my missing pieces to my photography that I so needed. Not only did I learn tremendously with my posing,lighting, and editing but she also helped guide me with different aspects of running my business as well. My lighting has been a huge upgrade thanks to the knowledge I received during my hands-on mentoring session with Nicole. This mentor session has been one of the best investments in my business. Thank you Nicole for the amazing opportunity and helping transform my craft and business.
