Ethan Alexander

I had the opportunity to shoot the Scott Family this weekend and I had a great time.  You probably remember them from my first Maternity post.  Ethan is now 3 months old and full of lots of smiles and laughs.  I have been doing my family portraits on location without the luxury of the consistent light that a studio offers.  I have been using whatever light is available to me which can be tricky.  I try and incoporate as much natural light as possible.  These shots were done mostly in the living room in front of the window.  I tweaked the images in lightroom.  I'm really enjoying these on location shoots because it's as if I have been invited to spend a "morning in the life" of the family.  I like the realness of the images and I find doing the pictures in the family's own home offers an intimate element that you might not get in a studio.  Thanks Scott Family for a lovely sunday morning!


To us, an ideal photographer captures the feeling of the day, the vibe of the celebration, blends in to get those perfect shots and instinctively reacts to the movement of the moments. Nicole did exactly that for our day. She has a warm, engaging presence and was able to capture beautiful shots without us ever knowing that she was there. She got the fine details that we were too busy to notice, was attentive in making sure that everything and everyone was captured and has a unique, talented and artistic eye. When we saw the pictures we were speechless. It felt like we were moving through time as if there again. We couldn't have asked for a better, more talented, professional and beautifully gifted photographer. She comes with halos, gold stars, A++++++ ratings, accolades,  sung praises, etc. If you can get her, we think you should try.
