Nicole O'Neil Photography
I believe in seizing the moment, in spending time with those I love and in enjoying the little moments every day. I love what I do. To have the honor to capture people's most important moments and memories and then provide beautiful heirloom products to enjoy and hand down to the next generations is humbling. People let me into their lives and I get to tell their story with my camera. What's more special than that?
I think perfection is overrated. While, I will always work to get those "posed smiling at the camera" shots, I find the most powerful images to be those that are candid, families enjoying time together, the "REAL" moments, with personalities showing through the lens. I love creating images that show your true self, that evoke emotion, freezing those precious moments forever.
I have a lot of patience. No matter how much a child is refusing to look at the camera or a newborn may be crying, I just continue to keep my energy calm. Many clients call me the "baby whisperer".
THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS
The color blue, traveling, hiking, being near the water, cozy nights by the fire,
staying active and fresh flowers.
A FEW THINGS I CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT
My camera, my amazing loved ones, music, coffee
RANDOM THINGS ABOUT ME
I love to dance and sing, even though I may not be fantastic at either.
American Idol is not in my future.
I tend to break out into laughing fits over the smallest thing, serious laughing fits that
can't be controlled.
I am slightly obsessed with the American Flag, especially at magic hour.
I am also obsessed with traveling and meeting people around the world.
I visit Italy often and have clients and friends there.
I cry at weddings. ALL weddings, whether as a guest or as a photographer.
I love to act like a goof, which is why running around and trying to make kids smile and laugh is fun for me.
