"We take photos as a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone. We take photos to recall - with greater vibrancy - those experiences that have shaped and made us. We take photos to bridge distance and shorten time, to lend legacy to the little things and life to the forgotten."

- Katie Thurmes, co-founder of Artifact Uprising.


Hey there, I'm so glad you stopped by. I'm Nicole, a portrait photographer serving South Jersey and the Greater Philadelphia regions. I specialize in newborn, baby, children, family, maternity, engagement, and head shot portraits. I also love conceptual or lifestyle shoots, so please don't hesitate to inquire about those.


The opportunity to collaborate with others and create an artistic vision is why I pick up my camera.

The beauty in the moments happens through collaboration, and I love that. It's so much more than just me or a camera. It's a harmony of many elements and people coming together that makes a great photo, and it's pure magic.


Here are some fast facts about me:

*I have a BA in Photojournalism from Temple University. 

*I lived in San Francisco and Santa Cruz, CA for 5 years.

*My favorite movie and TV show genre is Sci-Fi.

*I taught ESL in Costa Rica.

*If I wasn't head over heels in love with photography, I would want to be a yoga instructor.

*I've always wanted to go to Alaska.

*I once got kicked out of the zoo for getting too close to a leopard (to take a photo of course).

*In 2011, I participated in the AIDS Lifecycle and rode a bike from San Francisco to Los Angeles.

*Road trips are the perfect summer vacation.

*I used to play the violin. It's my favorite instrument!


After the birth of my beautiful daughter in 2015, I felt inspiration like never before, and put my heart into Kaleidoscope Imagery. Our little ones are our biggest muses. I thank mine for this new path of creativity that I hope I may share with you. I adore little ones, honor new mamas, and relish the joy of couples. It's my goal  that you find your shoot with me to be fun, collaborative, and inspired, and that the end result will offer you stunning images to cherish for years to come.


Please contact me for any further information or to book your shoot. Let's make some magic!


With love,
