About us

Nicole & Steph

You will find through looking at our photo galleries that our photography style is very natural, creative, expressive and sometimes non-traditional.  

We like to have fun, capture candid moments, and laughter is the best.  We're always thinking of new ideas for photos and scouting new locations. We don’t stick to one style per say because every shoot and individual is different.  What one person likes another may not, so we try to tailor your shoot completely to you and what you are trying to capture.  We want our clients to have fun and feel completely comfortable during the session.

What our clients are saying...

Julie-Ann Bellis

Our family has been being photographed by Nicole for the past 11 years. We’ve had various shoots including our engagement, our wedding and endless shoots of our family growing. (Even a special shoot with our beloved pet)

Nicole goes above and beyond each and every time we meet with her. She does what it takes each time to get such beautiful smiles from my children, and even my husband who hates getting his picture taken. She makes all the silly faces, funny noises and tickles to get just the right shot! 

She’s the only photographer we’ve ever used, and we won’t be going anywhere else!  

We haven’t had the pleasure of working with Steph, but have booked appointments and had communication with her and she’s also delightful.

If your looking for a photographer, Nvision is your answer!

Jennifer Maloney

Nicole is absolutely amazing not only with the beautiful pictures she takes but her ability to work with children. We have been going to Nicole for almost 4 years now and we have never been disappointed. We would recommend her in a heartbeat. If you hire NVISION you will not be disappointed! Thank you Nicole for capturing our precious moments and we look forward to many more!!

Melissa Patriquin

We had newborn photos done by Nvision Photography and our experience was absolutely wonderful. They were quick to answer any questions we had, and guided us through the process as we were first time parents and it was all new to us. Steph took the photos of our son, and we couldn't be happier with them. She was kind, professional, and very patient with us and our little one, especially when he didn't want to cooperate and take a nap. (And I'm still impressed with her baby burrito wrapping skills!) We loved all of the photos she took and can't wait to have another photo session for his first birthday. Thank you Steph and Nvision!

Kerri Lott

Every session we’ve had with Nvision has been amazing. They manage to capture our family perfectly! I couldn’t be happier with our photos!

Courtney Dodson

Nicole has been taking our family photos for the last few years, ranging from outdoor shoots, themed sessions, maternity and newborn photos. We’ve always loved how comfortable Nicole makes us feel which then translates to capturing some amazing pictures. I’m looking forward to working with Nicole and displaying our photos in our home for many years to come.

Jennifer Bowen

Nicole and Steph, the delightful team at NVision have photographed our son Emerson from 6 months old and every birthday thereafter. He's 5 now, and year by year NVision has helped us watch him grow and hold on to each moment. We've some wonderful shots of our growing boy who felt relaxed and comfortable enough with both these young ladies to chat, share chuckles, and offer more than a few genuine smiles and moments of joy.

We will continue to highly recommend NVision. Especially to the parents in our circle. NVision's mannerisms with children is unmatched : fussy toddler or not you're getting beautiful photos. It's a certain type of magic I'm sure. Both Nicole & Steph are nothing short of very talented and worth every penny.

Crystal Schoneveld

Nicole and Steph have been taking pictures of our family for 9 years. We started with Maternity photos, to newborns, to family photos just about every year. Both ladies are fantastic, getting wonderful photos every session, even when my children are not so eager to participate. If the kids aren’t feeling a pose or won’t sit still, Steph and Nicole adjust and end up getting gems. Lately we have had Steph for our photo shoots, she is great with the kids, kind and patient. Thank you ladies for our treasured photos, we look forward to many more.

Michelle Lake

It's true what they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. When we first heard that Nicole had started this business, we decided to get cheesy couple pictures done-which included our first baby of course, a German Shepherd. I remembef being amazed by those photos and I never liked photos of myelf until I looked through her lense. Fast forward to 2020 and Nvision photos have become a staple in our lives and our home. From those cheesy photos, an engagement, a wedding and now to our little family, Nvision has given us the gift of time standing still. In all the chaos life throws our way, we always have these photos reminding us not only of just how precious life is but how much we have grown. We cannot ever fully explain the gratitude we feel for thousands of memories stood still. Thank you Nvison!

Carissa Mullett

I dont even know where to begin! We first met Nicole 7 years ago when I was pregnant with our first and she has since documented so many memories for us! Maternity, newborn, cake smashes, mini shoots, family and christmas.
Nicole's patience and creativity never cease to amaze me, she is always trying to learn and move forward. The amount of time and effort she puts into the photoshoot itself AND the editing after is always top notch and does not go unnoticed ♡

Melissa Mcdonald

Nicole & Steph are incredible. They make their clients feel so comfortable and natural throughout all their sessions. Their ability to capture true spirit and absolute beauty in a split-second is unmatched. Our family trusts no one else with our most treasured moments.

Jessa Holmes

Nicole at Nvision Photography has been our photographer for the last 8 years. Capturing the milestones of my children that I could only dream of doing myself. Nicole has always been comfortable, extremely patient, always welcoming and very kind during each of our shoots. We keep coming back because she has a natural talent of capturing perfect memories that will last us a lifetime.
I give Nvision Photography a 10/10 when it comes to great service, excellent photos and the BEST smiles you’ll ever want!

Colleen McNamara Kelly

When my family first met Steph both my kids were very camera shy. My son refused to stand near any of the back drops in case Steph even tried to take his picture. My daughter was won over quickly by Steph and before long was giggling away in front of the camera. It didn't take long for my son to decide he was missing out on the fun and joined in. Now, both kids look forward to seeing Steph at our sessions and are always excited when she suggests she do their favorite pose. We have lots of great photos of happy, relaxed kids and it's all due to how special Steph makes them feel.

Nicole Gaffney

Nvision Photography has captured some of the most monumental celebrations in our lives. Photos we will cherish forever! Photos that bring so much light and positive energy when we look at them hanging in our home. Nicole goes above and beyond for her clients, making you feel like family the moment you meet. She is accomodating and truly listens to what you're looking for during each photoshoot. The photos are always brilliant and vibrant whether in-studio, in-home or outdoors. I highly recommend Nicole and Steph of Nvision to be a part in capturing those special moments for all occasions!!

Kiersten Cross

Nicole from Nvision has been doing my family’s photos for over 6 years now. She has always had so much patience when photographing my children and treats them with such kindness. They absolutely adore Nicole. We have done a variety of different photo sessions and she has always managed to capture the best pictures of my family. I will always highly recommend her and her partner to anyone who is looking for a photographer. I couldn’t imagine using anyone else.

Kate McCumber

Steph has been photographing our family for 3 years now, we couldn’t be happier with every single shot she’s taken. Steph is beyond patient with our 3 year old son, and now our 6 month old daughter. She has captured the most beautiful photos, we are so thankful. Steph is very creative with her shoots, as well as makes its fun for the entire family. Thank you for capturing such great memories for us!

Breanna Finkle

Nicole has been taking photos for me since I was 16 years old. Her talent is unexplainable and she makes everything so easy going and comfortable! She offers more than affordable sessions so it’s an option for everyone! Nicole has made me feel beautiful, confident and sexy with her amazing boudoir shoots! She has been a part of some of our most special times as a family with maternity new born and our wedding, and we can’t thank her enough for all she does!! Her photos are all over our home and we always look forward to working with her! Thank you Nicole!

Kelly Ashbee

We have had the opportunity to work with Nicole at Nvision Photography on a number of occasions. Nicole has been our photographer for several very important times in our lives including family pictures, our engagement shoot, wedding photography, my maternity shoot and newborn photos of our daughter. She makes you feel at ease and is able to take beautiful natural looking photos both in and out of her studio. I would recommend Nicole at Nvision to capture any of life's most important moments. You can trust she will do a professional job and you will be so excited to see and share the results!

Kim Mercenko

Nicole’s professionalism and personal touch are really what makes her photography so beautiful. She genuinely cares to provide you with the best possible photos, even in less than perfect circumstances.
Her ease and personality calm the grumpiest child to ensure you have smiles in your family photos, and she has an eye to capture at just the right moment.
I refer her first, anytime someone is asking where to go!

Amy Lewis

We entrusted Nvision to capture our newborn photos and later our family photos. Beyond her creativity and expertise (which are top notch!), Nicole was a dream to work with. We were certain our family photo shoot would be doomed due to a gloomy day and our 18-month-old who was uncooperative at best. Among the chaos of trying to convince a tired, tiny person to smile and stay still, and the threat of a downpour, Nicole captured beautiful photos that truly reflect the personalities of my family. They remain some of my most treasured images. Thank you, Nicole

Sara Lucas-Oliver

We have worked with Nicole for the last 7 years. She is very pleasant and easy going and makes taking pictures easy and fun. So very personable and down to earth.
Always flexible, accommodating and open to pretty much anything.
She has done newborn photos for my daughter, a large family session, and Christmas pictures for the last 7 years. I never feel stressed out and the pictures always turn out amazing with quick turnaround.
I even did boudoir before my wedding as I hate having my picture taken and thought this might help. Nicole made me feel at ease and took some beautiful photos giving me the confidence I needed.
I always look forward to seeing her and her capturing our special moments.
I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone! In fact shes one of the first photographers I do, having sent many friends her way.
Looking forward to our Christmas shoot this year!
Thanks again for the last 7 years capturing our special moments.
