For me, every session is a celebration. When the rest of the world is chaotic, I retreat back to my camera to do the one thing that makes sense - capturing life as it happens. It doesn't always happen as planned. The weather doesn't always cooperate and timelines sometimes get shifted. Regardless of the setting, my why is simple. We aren't going to be around forever. We don't know how long life truly lasts. I capture the moments that need to stay in memory. The ones your family will want to look back on. The ones that will bring joy for eternity. I'm here to steer you in the right direction and make sure you have memories that will last for generations to come. Each person's story is unique, which is why I still love what I do 8 years after getting started. I would love to get to know you and to hear your story. This is what I'm all about.
Jack and I love to be personally connected to our clients! We get to know you during our emails and your session, but what will you know about us? Take a peek into our lives and get to the couple behind the camera! We're going to take you back to college where our story began!
Jack and I met during my junior year of college back in April of 2015! I was working on a dance show at the Dr. Phillips Performing Arts Center as the master electrician and lighting designer (we are huge theatre nerds and went to school for it). Jack walked in and crowded my space. I was stressed and said some not so nice things to him since I had no idea who he was. He took it and gave it right back to me! I think this is when I knew he was the one. I later found out that he transferred to our school and was the new audio guy. I pestered him for a week or two and even got him to help me move out of my apartment. We finally went on a real date and have been together ever since!
I had my internship in Richmond, Virginia one month after Jack and I started dating. We were apart for three months, but nothing changed! The next year, Jack did his internship in New London, Connecticut for another three months, but we were still going strong. After a string of terrible roommates and jobs not working, we knew that we would be the best support for each other. We moved in together in May of 2017 and started our future!
I graduated from the University of Central Florida in May of 2016, but Jack still had credits to finish before he finished his third degree. Balancing the real world on my own was difficult, but I knew we'd both be in it together soon! Jack was my strongest support system through the bad, and I helped with the school portion. Jack officially finished his schooling in 2018 and started his career as a professional sound designer for theatre! Through the good and bad, ups and downs, we have made it and have become successful creators together.
After years of attempting to coordinate two completely opposite schedules and becoming frustrated that we never saw each other, we decided to start contemplating becoming a couple photography team. It was such a hard decision, but we knew this was our next step. Jack joined Haleigh Nicole Photography officially at the beginning of 2018 and we have LOVED this season of life as partners! He is my second photographer and assistant on all sessions and weddings.
Don't worry, it's a fur-baby! We rescued our sweet, derpy, 7 year old cocker spaniel named Rocky in August of 2018! He came to us at the most perfect time in our life and has completed our current family. He loves to take rides in the car, play with his football and squirrel, and take long walks with us! He is the perfect mix of loving, protecting, and weird. We couldn't ask for anything more! Rocky will always be our first love.
• Pumpkin smells. I can't live without them. Our house smells like fall year round. We don't have any seasons besides summer here in Florida, so it brings me back to my home in New Jersey!
• Wawa cream smoothies are my lifeline. I have one almost every day! I think it's my Jersey roots, but dang, are those things delicious. Sugar and Spice is my number one during the winter months, but strawberry banana is an amazing second!
• I love a clean and organized house, but specifically, a freshly vacuumed carpet. The sweet smells of carpet freshener and the softness of the carpet just brings me an overwhelming sense of calmness.
• Dogs doing silly things on video? I'm there. I will watch them for HOURS. It brings me so much joy! I'm pretty sure Rocky is watching as well because he has been doing some odd tricks lately....
My actual daily smoothie.. Obsessed.
