I'm a family photographer in the Gulf Breeze/ Pensacola/ Pensacola Beach area. I'm a healthcare worker turned photographer, a Cajun transplant, a mom of 2 energetic kids & 2 wild and crazy dogs, and wife to a "damn yankee". I've always had a camera in my hand, and if you asked me what I wanted to be as a kid, I likely would've said, "a photographer for National Geographic!" As life would have it, I felt called to serve people as an Occupational Therapist in the medical field. It's been a rewarding career to meet people from all walks of life, hear their special stories, and help them regain their independence. But another passion of mine is to capture the sweet, special, day-to-day moments in peoples lives. Going through old photos with my patients has always been one of my favorite things to do. Hearing the stories behind the photos, seeing the glimmer in someones eye as they recall those special days. It's an honor for me to capture moments like this for all my clients, and I so look forward to meeting you & freezing some of these moments in time for you as well.

My fiancé and I went to Holland Farms with Nicole for our fall engagement pictures and they came out just as we imagined. We had so much fun in the sunflowers, and she captured our playful energy perfectly!

"We were so pleased with Nicole Smith Photography!" She is very knowledgeable with lighting, timing, and camera angles to capture you at your best. We were so happy with the creativity of the photos. She recommended the perfect time of day and settings to take the pictures. On top of it, she knew just how to get our kids to smile, and the whole family had fun during the photo shoot!"
