Photography by Cassandra Lauren Photography

Welcome, I'm so glad you're here!

I'm Nicole.  I'm a newborn, baby, and family photographer in Saratoga Springs & Boston, and I can't wait to work with you!

I’ve always loved stories.  When I was a little girl, I told everyone that I wanted to be an author when I grew up.  I spent my childhood reading novels and listening to my grandparents tell their stories from 60 years ago.  I’ve stared at countless photographs of cityscapes, focusing on the people just outside of the frame and wondering what their story was about.  For years, I imagined what was going on behind the scenes of a Norman Rockwell painting.  And I still enjoy glancing into a lit up window of a beautiful New England home and catching a half-second glimpse into their family’s story.  


Our stories are what connect all of us together,
and it’s only natural that this fascination with storytelling has led me to this point.


Do you want to know my favorite story? Your story. The one that hasn't been told yet. 

Your story is worth telling.  It’s worth celebrating!  I believe that family comes first, that childhood is magical, and that the little moments in your family’s life are the ones that make up your story and your legacy.  Your family’s photos are so important to me, and I want to give you images that will remind you of these fleeting moments long after your children are grown. 

I want to help you create a session that is uniquely yours, to capture moments that you will treasure with your little ones, and give you stunning artwork and heirlooms that you can hold in your hands and pass down to your children 20 years from now. I feel so incredibly lucky to work with beautiful & happy families that trust me to do such important work.  I am honored to be the one you’ve chosen to tell your family’s story.  Most days, I can’t even believe that this is what I get to wake up and do every day.  Being a photographer — being your family’s photographer — is truly the best job in the world.
