Photography by  Cassandra Lauren Photography

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

I’m Nicole, and I am a professional baby cuddler — or rather, I’m a newborn, baby, & family photographer! 

I live in Saratoga Springs, NY with my husband and one very smiley baby boy.  I love capturing milestones for the families that I work with in New York & Massachusetts, and I’m already looking forward to meeting your family and documenting the sweetest moments for you to enjoy.

I’m a Boston girl at heart, but I now live three hours away in Saratoga Springs, NY.  Wait, what?  How do I work in TWO different states? 

I grew up in Massachusetts and I started my photography business in Boston back in 2012.  We moved to upstate New York in 2016, and I still travel back to Massachusetts for sessions almost every month because I just love working with so many amazing families there!  You can find me at our Attleboro studio a few days each month, or on Cape Cod in the summer where I love doing our Salt Air family sessions.  The rest of the time I’m working with families in Saratoga & Albany, and enjoying lots of cuddles at home with my sweet baby boy!

a little bit about me

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 30 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.
