I am Nicole Conner, film photographer, raising 3 boys in Washington State. All too often we are hustling, creating, re-imagining, and living. Film brings us back to the intention, the purpose, and the vision, which is why I appreciate the slowness of this process. At this stage of life, I feel connected to other moms who too are in this hustle of motherhood. Us moms simply want to hold onto every moment and experience which so quickly flies before us. My purpose as a photographer is to document your story so naturally and authentically as it unfolds.
Published in national print and popular blogs including Mingle Magazine, 100 Layer Cakelette, and The White Wren. Award winning locally and nationally. A great friend wrote "Nicole Conner is a compelling photographer creating delightful imagery for her clients. Always elegant, a little wild, Nicole's work reflects her desire to celebrate the details of beauty and love."
Nicole is so personable and puts everyone at ease. She jumps into a situation, problem-solves the unexpected by improvising, sees the beauty, and gets the shots. She is so excited and in love with what she does and it comes across in her work. We had the wedding at my parent's house and so this was a very intimate setting and I was afraid that vendors and professionals would feel strange to have in such a personal space. SO GLAD we found Nicole, she immediately felt like family and ADDED to the feeling of closeness and warmth. Nicole is also extremely professional, organized, and confident, while staying pleasant and flexible. With so many things to worry about on a wedding day, our photographer and photos were just not one of those things. Nicole's photography captured what was important to us, in a magical way.
She has an incredible gift of bringing out the beauty of everyone she photographs, it's really an art. Her images always capture the most amazing moments in such a way that it never ceases to take your breath away. It's clear that this is her passion and she undoubtedly puts her whole heart into it.
On our wedding day, she went above and beyond what either of us had ever imagined. She truly captured the love, excitement, nerves, beauty, anticipation and so much more with her camera. She made everything run smoothly and was so loving, enthusiastic, flexible and professional on our special day.
AMAZING! Nicole has a way of brining out the best in the people she is working with. I anticipated feeling awkward or posed and I never felt that way once. She made my fiancé and I feel confident and comfortable and got the best photos of us! Thank you Nicole! I can't wait for the wedding!
It is my promise to you that your experience is incredible. I accept a limited number of clients each year. Based upon your budget, location, and needs a custom quote will be proposed. Printing your photos is one of the most important things you can do. My wish for you is that your images are displayed proudly throughout your home, on your walls, and in albums. However, I understand how important your images are which is why the digital downloads are included for each session. As a photographer with over 10 years experience I am excited to learn more about you and how i can serve you best.
Getting to know you and building a relationship is first and foremost. Our connection is the magic ingredient for an incredible experience. Once you have sent an inquiry, you will receive a questionnaire to determine if our vision aligns. If we are a great fit we will begin planning your session.
After your questionnaire is complete, you will be sent a customized proposal based on your answers, once signed, we will schedule your session depending upon availability, location, and time of day for the best light.
As a film photographer, we will determine the location for your session, whether indoors or in a beautiful sunlit location, we will pick the perfect place for your photos. Film loves light, the brighter the better. Don't worry if your space is not ideal, we will find the perfect outdoor location for you.
Film brings us back to the intention, the purpose, and the vision, which is why I appreciate the slowness of this process. Film requires more time as each image is carefully curated and taken. My purpose as a film photographer is to document your story as naturally and authentically as it unfolds. One roll of film takes 16 images, you can expect approximately 5 rolls per hour. The aesthetic of film is soft, vibrant, and beautiful, it photographs light and color much different than digital, which is why I prefer it.
Once taken, all rolls are sent to a lab in Utah, where a dedicated technician develops, scans to digital, and delivers the negatives and digital files back to me. This process can take up to two weeks. Once the digital files are received, I carefully select and polish up each image digitally. Those digital images are uploaded to your own online gallery for printing and digital download.

Never in a million years did I think I would be a mom, let alone a mom of three, and better yet of all boys! They say you are given what you can handle, someone must have thought I could handle A LOT! Lol!
