Girl Photography

Photography has always been one of my secret loves.  Its amazing to me how the purest moment can be captured in a photograph.  I used to always think photography was easy.  I figured all people had to do was aim the camera and click.  Now I definitely recognize that having a great eye is truly a gift and not everyone has it.

Today, I'm featuring a very talented photographer, Nicole Peterson from Girl Photography (pictured to the left with her hubby).  I've had the pleasure of working with her on several occasions (and her wedding has also been featured here on my blog).  We have a mutual friend, Courtney, who connected us and we have stayed in contact ever since.  She has a great eye and is very passionate about her art.

Nicole got into photography right after her wedding when her husband announced that he wanted to start a photography business and she thought why not take it up as a hobby.  Well her hobby blossomed into a passion and pretty soon all she wanted to do was take pictures.  Originally, she wanted to go into pet photography but found that shooting people is so much more rewarding and interesting. What has amazed her the most through her business is how she has been able to touch people's lives by documenting moments that mean so much to them. It has also served as constant renewal to her faith in man because she gets to witness humanity at its best : love, happiness, joy, and kindness.  She is so excited about what lies ahead for her and feels so blessed to be able to pursue something that gives her so much joy and fulfillment.

It's a beautiful thing to be able to do something you love.  I applaud Nicole for pursuing her passion and I am excited as well to see what lies ahead for her!  Check out a few of her favorite shots!

Nicole is based out of the Philadelphia area (but will travel for events as well.)  Check out her website for more info!
