Capturing The Experience: Kids Sports Photography

I started my photography career over 9 years ago after walking past a digital photography school for a year in Georgetown, D.C.  While at school I enjoyed taking studio lighting classes, on-location portraits, wedding photography and a lot of computer classes. After graduation I started my photography career in the sports and fitness industry. I traveled for two main clients, the largest being Reebok. For years I captured fast action-packed sporting events, lifestyle fitness photography and portraits. (view portfolio here) It was no surprise that once I had my son I ventured into family lifestyle photography and captured the action of babies, toddlers and children during family photo sessions. Those who have kids understand that kids are always on the move.

This spring my son started exploring different sports. It wasn’t until I stepped back onto a sports field that I felt a full circle moment, action sports photography was back in my life. This time around there was a big difference than in previous sports coverage. I was not out to capture the critical winning point, pain of defeat or strain of moving a big weight. My goal was to capture the experience of a child taking on a sport that was new to them. The thrill of kicking a ball correctly, friendships being made, the smile of pure joy running to a base and/or climbing to a new height on a rock wall. I’m excited to capture all these new discoveries and document the experience of sports from where it all begins. Below is the start of capturing this type of sports photography. Stay tuned for more adventures. If you have a sports photography project that needs a professional touch, please email me at Nicole@nbphotog.com

Location, Location! A Lifestyle Photography Session

As a photographer I am constantly finding locations for a perfect photoshoot session. I catalog them in my head, make note of different set ups and plan to visit again as soon as a client comes along that will make the location come to life. A close friend of mine was visiting from out of state with her two blue-eyed children in tow and I knew it was a perfect time to revisit a local farm that has the most amazing birch trees and weathered barn. In all seriousness I have been waiting for years to photograph these birch trees and my friend’s cutest little 18 month old girl was the ideal person to make this on-location photoshoot a true success.

So if you are ready for your next family photo session send me an email to nicole@nbphotog.com.  I can’t wait to hear from you!

More Than Just A Family Mini Session

This family mini session was full of fun, dropping temperatures and a lot of wind, but you wouldn’t know it from the photos we were able to capture in just a 25 minute mini session.  The chosen location was full of unique backdrops which made for great photo set ups.  This fall to winter shoot was a perfect way to kick off the holiday photo season. I had scouted the location prior to the photo session so I had a general plan of where we were going to start and with the 25 minutes timeline the location had all these different areas to discover only a few feet away from each other. Did I mention the wind? The wind coming off the Connecticut river was pretty intense but luckily the sun peeked out at the end of the session to warm things up and end on a fun and smiling photo session.

View All The Fun Of An Extended Family Photo Session

It takes a village, right? Well that is certainly true with a family photography session.  The Auger family was full of fun and I loved their willingness to help make silly faces and gestures behind the scenes to create great smiles and laughs from the youngest family members. There is so much more to a photo session than that one perfect group shot, I love to capture the in-between genuine moments that highlight the entire photo session experience. My style for this 1 hour family photo session was a mixture of both portrait and lifestyle photography and by the time the session was wrapping up I felt like an honorary member of the family.

Welcome to the World Baby K

I recently had the opportunity to photograph Baby K and her family.  Here are a few newborn lifestyle images, as well as sibling interactions, captured during their session.  Watching these two grow up is going to be so much fun.
