Hi, I’m Nicole! I’m a Saskatoon-based photographer who just loves taking photos of people. Whether working in fashion, family portraiture, maternity sessions, or weddings, I strive to capture every magical moment in the most beautiful way. I’m inspired by life, emotion and relationships, and I constantly challenge myself to bring out the essence of you.
My Photographic Journey
As far back as I can remember, I’ve loved photography. My dad was (and still is) obsessed with documenting life on camera and rather than always being one of his subjects, I too began to capture candid moments in my family— I even enlisted my Barbies as models for ‘fashion editorials’. In high school, I had the opportunity to take film photography classes and it was at that point I saw that my hobby had the potential of being a career, a thought that would be put on hold as I graduated from the University of Saskatchewan with a Marketing degree and spending the next few years working for multinational companies like Coca-Cola and vitaminwater. But I never really felt like myself in the corporate world, so when a company restructuring came along, I took it as a sign and jumped right into starting my own photography business. It was the best leap I’ve ever taken.
Speaking of leaps, another passion of mine is dance. It’s been a big part of my life for thirty years and I continue to both train and instruct to this day which, as a photographer, has shaped my instinct for movement and posing. I also adore fashion and am grateful to work throughout the industry whether as a stylist (Midtown Plaza, Saskatoon Fashion & Design Festival), model (SFDF, Jazz Fest, various TV appearances), blog editor (SFDF), and of course, photographer. Fashion inspires me so it’s no surprise that it influences the look and feel of my images.
From business headshots to personal portraiture, I enjoy bringing out the best, most polished version of everyone I photograph. Beyond my own studio work, I’ve photographed for various agencies and businesses including the Saskatchewan Jazz Festival, Saskatoon Fashion & Design Festival, national clothing companies like Triple Flip, and local companies such as White Dahlia by Dutch Growers and Capelli Salon. My fashion work has been published in Northside Magazine, PUMP Magazine, COCO Fashion Magazine, and Fine Lifestyles with more announcements to come.
I truly look forward to meeting you and learning about your upcoming photography needs. I am inspired by you, and can’t wait to create images that make you smile.
