I am Nicole! I am the owner, photographer and the creative eye behind Simply Newborn Photography!!
I am a flip flop & Diet Dr. Pepper lover who adores all things rustic and vintage! I live for days spent decorating, cleaning and organizing or just spending time by the pool.
I am a proud momma to Gavin who is 11 and Charley who is 9. I have been married to my husband, Chris, for 18 years. When I am not running a business I am busy running my Kindergarten classroom!
I started my first photography business, Ever After Photography, in 2001 photographing primarily weddings. I took a short break from photography to pursue a degree in Elementary Education at the University of North Florida. In 2009 I dusted off my Canon Rebel and photographed a friends maternity images and posted them to Facebook. I started getting a lot of inquiries from friend and their friends so I figured I would “just do this for fun”. I knew I didn’t want to photography weddings again, so after lots of training and practice Simply Newborn Photography was born. Fast forward 11 years and I am still perfecting and growing this business.
Simply Newborn Photography specializes in custom newborn, maternity and children portraiture or as we like to call it baby art.
I shoot in my in-home studio or in the outdoor location of your choosing. I strive to not only provide you with breathtaking images, but to provide you with a full service experience from start to finish.
What’s in my bag?
I am asked often, what camera do you use? What lens is that?
So here ya go! I shoot with a Nikon D700.
All of my studio work and some outdoor portraiture is shot with baby, my 35mm 1.8 lens. I have recently fallen in love with my newest addition, the 70-200 2.8mm…the bokeh is to DIE for!
In studio I utilize studio light with an Einstein E640 paired with a 48 inch PLM.
