Meet Nicole

Minimalist, artistic, light chaser

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!


From the beaches

to the mountains, we love it all.

After a new start for my business, I decided to start new. I changed my business name and re-branded for my new home & business. Lover of the mountains & raised on the low-country beaches of Georgia. I needed a new name that spoke to me more. That felt more "me". 
Sitting at the tables of my seasonal job in between shifts I'd doodle on my note pad and figure new business ideas. How Peaks+Waves Portraits came to be! They represent both of my homes. Virginia mountains & Georgia beaches. 
My style of photography is ever-changing. I love natural light. Bold colors that speak to me. Bright & moody portraits. It all depends on my locations and lighting.



Follow the adventures.
