Welcome to Nicole Hart Photography! I’m so glad you have found your way to my website.
I am married to a wonderful guy and we have two amazing little girls. We both grew up in and around Portland and I love raising the girls in our same footsteps.
My journey to photography… started like a lot of others — when I became a mom. I always loved taking pictures but I actually didn’t even ask for my first “big girl” camera! My husband just surprised me with one for Christmas. I have a background in television journalism so the art of telling stories and searching for visual impact is engrained in who I am.
After having our first daughter I wanted to capture every single moment of her life and I got more and more curious about taking even better photos of her and that’s where my journey began. After a few years of doing photography on the side and trying to master my camera and develop my style, I left the TV news world behind and ventured out to focus solely on Nicole Hart Photography. Five years later, here I am. I now book over 200 sessions a year and take great pride in capturing your real life, everyday family moments in my images.
I am primarily a natural light photographer specializing in newborns, children, families and high school seniors. I want my sessions to feel natural, relaxed and fun. During newborn sessions, your babies are in good hands and it’s a time for you to relax and take a break. For families, we can plan a session at one of my favorite spots or explore one of yours. I realize that one day my photos will be used to tell your family’s story and I am honored each and every time someone asks me to shoot for them.
As for me, when I’m not out shooting or scouting new locations – I love coffee, the smell of fresh rain in the spring and I love to bake with my girls. Pumpkin bread is our specialty. I love to travel & explore new places and have been fortunate enough to see several corners of the world.
