Everyone has a story, and each one deserves to have a voice in our world. Being a part of many of these communities, I bring sensitivity to working with same-sex couples, blended families, racially and ethnically diverse communities, and those experiencing neurodiversity, including dementia and autism. The key is to establish trust and authentic relationships before and during our photography session to shine a light on who you are uniquely — and the magic you create in your lives and communities.

"Thank you for spending the time to take such wonderful photos of me and Rob. We both felt so comfortable with you and enjoyed the session greatly, which clearly comes through in the end result!"

- Ruth & Rob S.

"Thank you Nell for your friendship and generosity with the most amazing photo shoot. Thank you for going along with my craziness! We LOVE You!!!"


“I was so excited to see that Nell was available for the date that I needed for my husband's homecoming. I loved her work so much I booked two sessions with her and didn't regret it! Not only did she have a call with me in advance to see what my expectations and goals were for this shoot but she also delivered on everything I asked for. She makes you feel so comfortable and easy that you forget about any nerves of how they will come out. I highly recommend Nell for any big life moments!”
