Let's kick off this conversation! I want to hear it all—your due date, whether you know the baby's gender (unless you’re keeping it a surprise), and what you're enjoying most about being an expectant mom!

Reach out and let's discuss your vision for the session and your desired outcomes. We'll find the perfect date for you and secure your spot on the calendar. The fun is just beginning!

1. say hello

Once you're confirmed on my calendar, we'll begin planning your session! Select your preferred location type—garden, forest, lifestyle studio, etc.—and I'll assist you in finding the perfect spot.

I'll also help you pick the ideal dress for your session! Whether you prefer a long train, lace, or a fitted style to showcase your bump, I'll ensure you look your best. You'll have full access to my client closet, which offers dozens of gowns to choose from.

2. LET'S START PLANNING!

I will be your guide throughout this entire process and am here to help. Feel free to ask any questions, and know that I will always support you. You are not alone on this maternity journey.

3. ASK ME ANYTHING!

Your session is finally here! We are going to make you feel like an absolute rockstar. We will slowly move through the session, making sure every piece is in place. I want you to feel in the moment with your little one to be and just enjoy this time together. While the session is joyful, I also just want you to feel at peace. Your little one will be coming so soon!

4. LET'S SHOOT! 

Yay! Your session is done! You can expect your proofing gallery within three weeks of your session. After wiping the tears away from looking at the amazing family you are growing, you will select your digital collection package and use your artwork credit to purchase amazing artwork for your walls!

5. YOUR PHOTOGRAPHS 

Nicole is amazing!

Not only will you love her work but you will love her personality! She did the best job capturing our personalities and now we have the most amazing photos to remember our pregnancy, birth, and first family photos!

Nicole was wonderful to work with!

Very professional and enjoyable to talk to with a keen eye for what will truly become a beautiful photograph, better than I could have pictured myself. Thank you Nicole for making me feel beautiful during a time where that can be hard to do.

frequently asked questions

HOW MANY WEEKS PREGNANT IS IDEAL FOR MY MATERNITY SESSION?

Maternity sessions are typically done between 29 and 36 weeks. This is the time for most moms-to-be where your belly is beautiful and full, but you don’t feel as uncomfortable as you might later in your pregnancy. Though I have shot maternity sessions earlier and later than this time frame, feedback from my expectant clients has suggested that this is the sweet spot! 

HOW SOON SHOULD I SCHEDULE MY SESSION?

It’s never too early to schedule your maternity session. Sometimes we can accommodate last minute requests, but we recommend a 4-6 week notice. If you would like a weekend appointment it is important to book early as Saturdays and Sundays are booked fast.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR FOR MY MATERNITY SESSION?

I have a small wardrobe of beautiful maternity gowns. I also have an exclusive relationship with One Hott Mamma, a maternity consignment shop located in uptown Charlotte. 

DOES THE TIME OF DAY MATTER WHEN SCHEDULING A MATERNITY SESSION?

Yes! My sessions are always an hour before sunset, also know as “golden hour”. This is when the light is the most optimal for your session and will give us the best results! 

CAN MY PARTNER OR MY CHILD BE IN THE PICTURES?

Absolutely!  

HOW DO I PREPARE FOR THE SESSION?

Try not to wear tight underwear and clothing on the day of the session to prevent marks on your skin. Get a manicure and a pedicure a day or two in advance.

CAN I PURCHASE AN ALBUM AND OTHER PRODUCTS FROM YOU?

Absolutely. I offer stunning albums that I personally design for you, as well a different print options. Visit my print shop to see more!  

DO YOU OFFER MATERNITY AND NEWBORN COMBO PACKAGES?

Yes I do! Please inquire here for more details. 

WHAT PAYMENTS DO YOU ACCEPT?

I accept all major credit cards, checks and cash.
