One of my favourites parts of a wedding day is capturing the congratulations from family and friends to the newly married couple. There is always so much love, laughter, joy and emotion just after the ceremony.⠀ ⠀ I just love this gorgeous smile from one of Kathleen's uncles when he was congratulating Jerry. I actually think it was in reaction to something cheeky Grandma said...⠀ ⠀ To me, this is what weddings are all about. Capturing the love, the joy, the relationships and all the moments. Most couples don't remember us capturing this part of the day, but are so glad that we did.⠀ ⠀ We are now booking weddings for 2019. Limited spots still available.

One of the things that I have found most fascinating when doing a boudoir slideshow reveal are my clients husbands or boyfriends and how they react to the photos.⠀ ⠀ When I first started photographing boudoir, I always thought that the guys would go for the photos that were more sexy… but over time I have found that if the guy could only choose one photo from the entire session it is the one where my client has the biggest most beautiful smile.⠀ ⠀ And I have always found it so interesting. They love that photo the most because that is how they want to see their girlfriend/wife, the woman that they fell in love with… smiling.. Happy..⠀ ⠀ Want to know more about boudoir with NBP?

Morning routines are so important. Recently I have gotten out of the habit of exercising, meditating and journaling before I have breakfast.. But I am now back into the swing of things and this is my motto... you just have to start somewhere.⠀ ⠀ It doesn't matter if you had a day off, it doesn't matter if it's not perfect. ⠀ ⠀ I love journalling each morning. I write down and affirm my goals. I write a gratitude list and get out into the fresh air. It is the perfect way to start the day.⠀ ⠀ So tell me, what is one thing that you are currently working on or holding back? Remember, just to start somewhere.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #brisbanephotographer #photographerbrisbane #qotd #morningmotivation #startsomewhere #brisbaneweddingphotographer #brisbaneboudoirphotographer #brisbaneportraitphotographer
Hello Brides to be, soon to be MRS and all those engaged ladies out there… today I thought I’d share a little wisdom I have learnt over the past twelve years photographing many, many weddings...⠀ ⠀ The couples who have the best wedding days, are the ones who are focused on creating a marriage, not just a wedding. They don’t care about the missing details, the crazy weather or if something goes wrong.. They just want to say i-do surrounded by those they love.⠀ ⠀ They are the ones who keep it simple and create a day that reflects who they are as a couple instead of just following wedding industry trends or what they think they should do. They care more about the people, the moments, the relationships and the experience rather than the stuff. The stuff is nice, but it’s not everything. They just do their weddings, their way. In whatever form that takes. ⠀ ⠀ Weddings are such a beautiful way to start a marriage, but it’s not everything. It is the day when you start a life long commitment to each other. A marriage should be more beautiful than just this one day. Create it how YOU want it to be. ⠀ ⠀ And if this resonates with you and you value the experience and the moments of your day over making sure every detail is perfect, if you don't give a crap if your hair gets messy or your dress gets dirty, then hit me up, because I want to capture YOUR wedding. All the love, all the emotion, all the beautiful moments, the people and the relationships for you to cherish long after the party is over.

Excuse me Nicole, does this pose work for you?⠀ ⠀ Every now and again magical things happen during a photo shoot, and this exact moment was one of them.. After we placed the little bow tie onto Onyx he lifted his hand up to his cheek... and it could not of been more perfect!⠀ ⠀ I am always fascinated by how much personality each newborn is born with. Some newborns are cheeky, some have old souls, some are super cuddly and some are super independent. ⠀ ⠀ And as a newborn photographer, I love being able to capture a variety of photographs the celebrate their unique personality. ⠀ ⠀ Want to know more about our portrait sessions?

TEN things you might not know about me:⠀ ⠀ 💜⠀ I have captured a bazillion photos of clouds. I love that they are always changing, ever evolving and you can use your imagination to see different things.. plus those sunset colours....⠀ 💜⠀ I love to meditate. It has been the single biggest game changer in my life. It’s helped me to go from stressed out negative nancy to a lot more chilled, confident and loving Nicole.⠀ 💜⠀ I am obsessed with essential oils and using them to elevate my mood and create a healthier lifestyle.⠀ 💜⠀ I absolutely LOVE the beach, walking along the sand, wind in my hair, ocean drowning out my thoughts.. But I equally in love with being out in the rainforest listening to the birds, being hugged by the cool damp air. ⠀ 💜⠀ I am obsessed with travelling and exploring. Whether that be close to home, a little further out like around the country or overseas, getting out of your comfort zone, exploring, meeting new people, embracing other cultures, this is one thing that drives me as a creative. Travelling makes you a better person.⠀ 💜⠀ I have very diverse music tastes from a bit of Linkin Park to Tycho to Taylor Swift to Gaga depending on my mood determines what type of music listen to.⠀ 💜⠀ I love water colour painting and can randomly sit down in one session and paint 20 artworks then not touch it again for a month. ⠀ 💜⠀ When in Canada, GD and I accidentally did a crazy 11.2km hike and about 3.5kms in, I didn’t want to do it anymore. I had a tanty. But GD made me walk to the next corner and then the next corner (he was not in the good books then) until we reached the summit. Luckily for him, the view and the scene that opened up around us was incredible and totally worth the effort.. Otherwise it would of been a long, cranky hike back down the mountain.⠀ 💜⠀ I was obsessed with coffee.. Especially almond milk flat whites… but lately I am becoming obsessed with green tea. Especially flavoured green tea. ⠀ 💜⠀ Some days I feel like a total badass rocking this business gig, then other days I feel like a total failure.⠀ 💜⠀ I'd love to know you a little more, tell me one thing about you 👇
Why is boudoir photography so powerful? ⠀ ⠀ Vulnerability.⠀ ⠀ By stripping down in front of a complete stranger in your underwear, you let go of all your body fears and step into your personal power. ⠀ ⠀ The power of owning who you are.⠀ The power of embracing your imperfections.⠀ The power of feeling confident and comfortable in your own skin.⠀ The power of no longer caring about others opinions.⠀ ⠀ That is the reason why I personally love boudoir photography. It is so much more than a photo shoot, it’s a life changing experience. And I want my clients to walk away after the experience remembering how they tapped into their personal power so that on those days when they are feeling a bit blah, they can look at their photos and remember how they felt during their session.⠀ ⠀ What does boudoir photography mean to you? ❤️I'd love to know in the comments below 👇👇👇⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #boudoir #boudoirbrisbane #boudoirstudio #Brisbane #boudoirphotography #boudoirphotographer #boudoirphotooftheday #photographer #bts #brisbanephotographer #brisbanefashion #brisbaneartist #brisbaneblogger #brisbanemakeupartist #brisbanestyle #brisbanemua #boudoirinspiration #boudoirphotos
Prove them wrong.⠀ ⠀ This has definitely been one of my mottos in business. If I listened to all of the different people who told me I couldn't make a living off photography or I couldn't be self employed, then I never would have started.⠀ ⠀ "You can't make a living as a photographer"⠀ "You should just go get a job"⠀ "You won't have any money"⠀ "That's not a real career"⠀ ⠀ These are some of the things people have told me over the years. But after 12 years, and 8 years full time I can say that I have certainly proved them wrong. It hasn't been easy and it certainly has been a rollercoaster but I am so glad that I didn't listen to all the nay-sayers and decided to follow my heart and my passion anyway. Its been the best, most rewarding decision I have ever made in my life.⠀ ⠀ So if you are reading this and you have found your passion but people are telling you that it isn't possible, know that you will find a way. If you love what you do and put the effort in each and every day then you will be rewarded. It will be a long and winding journey, but one that you will love.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #collectivehub #lmbdw #businesschicks #theleaguewomen #girlbossesau #brisbanephotographer #brisbanephotography #brisbaneportraits #brisbaneweddingphotographer
Coffee or Tea? What do you prefer??⠀ ⠀ I was always a coffee lover.. drinking one or two a day.. but recently working on some underlying health issues, I have no longer been craving coffee 😫 Instead I have been getting into tea again, especially green tea.⠀ ⠀ So I'd love to know, what are your favourite green tea blends? I'm not a fan of green tea by itself.. tastes like grass.. but I love the flavoured blends. ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #brisbanephotographer #photographerbrisbane #brisbaneteadrinker #brisbaneweddingphotographer #brisbaneportraitphotographer #brisbanelifestyle #brisbanelife
