Dad cooks while Ayla asks “where’s my food?” I recently had the pleasure of photographing beautiful baby Ayla at just a few weeks old. Its often hard to catch pictures of babies when they are still considered an infant – mom is still recovering from the delivery, dad is recovering from the fact that he is now a dad, and with constant feedings, naps, and trips to the diaper changing room…finding time for baby pictures can often be forgotten. But babies are so cute and tiny w
Recently my nephew Cody turned one and luckily I was photographing a wedding in New Orleans that week so was able to document his birthday. My sister and her husband had just moved into their new home the previous week so with all the unpacking and cleaning there wasn’t any time to organize a big birthday party….but I don’t think Cody minded. I spent about three hours with my camera around my neck to capture all the fun candid moments of the day. A lot can happen in three ho
Baby Pictures of sleeping Reese at home While I was in New Orleans last week to photograph a wedding, I had the opportunity to do some baby pictures. Must be something in the air, or the spring season, seems to be lots of babies in New Orleans lately. And lucky me to be able to spend some time with them, and take their first professional portraits. These pictures are of my new cousin Reese at only six weeks old. lifestyle newborn baby pictures and dog I especially love thi

Well, at least not in Colorado, I guess in Hawaii it could be more predictable. As many fingers as we crossed hoping for perfect weather for Jessica & Jeff’s wedding day, it
I love hearing stories of how people met & fell in love when they least expected it. Jaye was in a sorority in college and Stephen swore he would never date a sorority girl. Yet he made an exception for Jaye, they fell in love, and now they are getting married this weekend with a wedding at Highlands Ranch Mansion! fun engagement pictures around Santa Fe Arts District For their engagement session this past summer they wanted to do some fun urban photos around downtown Denve

Pictures for Mother’s Day This year I thought I would surprise my mom and my sister with a Mother’s day gift I knew they would love…pictures of newly arrived Cody Alexander White. Cody was born March 27, 2012 and I was fortunate enough to travel home to New Orleans a few weeks ago to visit. All of these pictures were taken in New Orleans, Louisiana when Cody was only 3 1/2 weeks old. The amount of love and admiration I have for my new nephew is in-describable. Sometimes

Have you ever felt a connection to a place…as if you had lived there in your dreams or in a past life…or was just so fascinated with the culture that you couldn’t resist the urge to travel there? Well, for over a decade now I’ve felt that way about Africa, and now I finally will be going there! However, this won’t be just another trip.

by Nicole Nichols Julie & Shelby were not originally particularly drawn to St. Patrick’s Day for any reason….but they will forever be now! They met on St. Patrick’s Day, got engaged on St.Patrick’s Day, so it only made sense to also get married on St. Patrick’s Day!

New Orleans children portrait photographer When I was recently in New Orleans I has the chance to photograph my twin sister, her son Caleb, and her new son on the way at City Park. I love photographing amongst the old oak trees, moss, and waterways of New Orleans’ City Park. We let Caleb loose on the play ground and I had to come up with some games, (like find the ducks, how many colors can you name) to get him to stop running around long enough to actually capture a few sh
Funky, Fun, Artistic Denver Engagement Pictures Rebecca & Derek’s Engagement Photo Session & Love Stories…. I love hearing stories of how engaged couples first met. If I was a waitress or accountant, or a list of other jobs, it would probably seem odd to ask the people I work with, “how did you first meet and fall in love?” Lucky for me as a wedding photographer I can get away with it. 😉 For this lovely couple it was their dogs that brought them together at a neighborhoo

Words can not express how thankful I have been for such a prosperous & exciting year. Big thanks go out to all of you who have in one way or another been a part of this amazing year. 2011 was the busiest year yet for Nicole Nichols Photography.
