Family + Maternity + Elopements

Hi, I'm Nicole Savannah, Georgia native to Mountain Homestead in Luray, Virginia. I am engaged to my best friend and mother to some adorable boys+fur babies.  
I absolutely love capturing those special moments, whether it be of your family, exchanging your vows, hiking the national park together, or a lifestyle session. 

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.
