“This photo shoot was a positive experience and she enjoyed it more than she thought she would. I give a lot of credit to you and how you worked with her. We had dinner afterwards and she was happier than I've seen in her a long time.” – Senior Parent

 

“Nicole is truly a one of a kind photographer! I find myself staring at our photos in awe!! She is creative, talented, and professional! Every photo is absolutely gorgeous in its own way, I'm especially in love with the candid’s in which she caught "real life" moments! She made us feel comfortable from the first second we met her and was beyond patient with our kiddos!”- Mandi Kragh

 

       “Senior class pictures of my son were exceptional” – Tracy Lux-Buie

 

“What impresses me the most about Nicole, is how she is able to create such a relaxed, casual atmosphere for the photo shoot, which results in some of the best improvised and spontaneous, natural shots we all
 love.” – Kym Veith

 

          “She's professional but makes every photo- shoot fun. One of my favorite things about Nicole is that she doesn’t just take the posed pictures; she takes pictures when you don’t expect it. She gets the ones of you laughing and talking, a lot of times those end up being my favorite photos.” – Payton Herwig (Senior 15’)

 

 "You definitely have made The Star a better newspaper.” – Karl Raymond, retired Sports Editor
