Peaks+Waves is so excited that you are interested in choosing us to document your family! I believe in real moments and chasing sunsets. The beautiful candid moments where your family is lovingly smiling at you, running through the meadows along side siblings. Capturing emotions like this is what I strive for because these are the moments you'll be able to look back and smile at.
I'm Nicole, a natural light family, maternity, & senior photographer based in Luray, Virginia.
I live for raw & intimate moments. I want to capture images that are so real they take you back to the moment. That will truly tell your story. I love being able to do this for clients like you, every day!
Seriously, being able to create beautiful portraits brings so much joy and leaves my soul full!.
Photography for me is more than a passion. I have a creative mind & if I don't allow myself to concoct something, I start to go a little stir crazy.
Photography started from a very young age. I believe it really grew from the fact all my family had portraits hanging on the walls & many albums printed to browse through. And I did growing up. I loved reliving or just simply picturing what it must have been like in that moment.
That is what I want for my clients. I want you to walk down your hallway and for your portraits to stop you and for you to go back to that moment in time. To the giggles, the piggy-back rides, hiking mountains, or cuddling by the fire.
