To me, I create so much more than a photograph for you. I capture your love and emotion so you can come back and hold it anytime you wish. This gift only becomes more precious as your little ones grow. 

I help families create heartfelt memories they can hold

This family has stolen our hearts. As a special needs mom,  I love working with my special needs clients. The tug on my heart strings tugs a little harder.

We love creating sessions where all of our clients can be comfortable. Chasing the sunset provided the most beautiful glow for this beautiful family.

Sunset Chasers

see Emerson grow up on the journal

I have been blessed to photograph the Gantt family since before little Emerson was born. Following their love story from Newlyweds to Kindergarten is at the very heart of my purpose. 

This session was so sweet. We woke up before the sun and met before soccer practice. Emerson and I got to catch up and I learned that she was Student of the Month! We picked magical berries and had plenty of giggles to start our day.

This session was so full of laughs that my stomach hurt from laughing so hard. We played until the sunset and captured some really sweet memories with everyone in the family. 

I love it when a family comes ready to play and this one sure did. If you watch you can still see all the sweetness that took place in between the laughs. 



FUll of laughs

The love of bringing baby number two home is so dynamic. You have the love for your first little one and that only doubles as you welcome your newest little one home.

Watching your first baby become the big sister or brother is so special. We loved watching little Livie get to do just that. SO many special moments.

Storyteller sessions are our favorite story to tell. We brainstorm and think about what you and your family are doing right now that you want to remember forever. 

When I met with Lauren she shared how they love to take the boat out to the island almost every weekend. She had us at boat ride! We had such an amazing session.

Its the little things that make this time so special. Your son who loves to play with legos for hours at a time, or your little girl that will be the first to cook up some cookies in her little play kitchen. These are the sweet little moments that pass so quickly. 

This storyteller session captured everything that makes home feel so good right now.

My Friend, It's Time for You To Get in the Picture...

You have your phone camera and tons of pictures of the kids, but where are you?

Right now is the time,  not when things finally calm down (a little hint, it's never going to!) or when you finally lose those last few pounds. Right now is such a special moment in your story. Your kids will always want to remember you just like you are right now.

What is Luxury Lifestyle Portraiture & Filmmaking?

tell me more

 tell me more 

I feel so lucky to get to share the world of lifestyle portraiture and filmmaking with you. It is a little corner of the photography world that I have personally fallen in love with and I think you may too.

By definition lifestyle portraiture is the art of capturing real life moments in an artistic way.


What is Luxury Lifestyle Portraiture & Filmmaking?

For me a lifestyle session is equal parts of witnessing and guiding. I always leave time during your session for me to hold back and artistically witness your family while documenting in an organic way. Sometimes this is where the magic lives. The rest of your session I will be gently guiding your family through a series of games and activities that will help to create real life emotions so I can perfectly tell the full story of your family.

In order for me to create this session experience for you, it is important for me to get to know the very heart of your family before your session. So we will meet and dream and talk over all the details that make you, you.

This allows me to create an authentic portrait experience for your family. No blind date, just a clear and artistic vision of how to naturally help you fall into the little moments that you will fall in love with over and over. I will gently guide your family through the whole experience so you will never have to wonder what to do next.

I bring over a decade of capturing emotion as art to your session experience.

Add the luxury of bespoke albums and canvas to the final product and you have an experience unlike any other. I will personally help design your home so we can surround you with your love.

So to answer your question, luxury lifestyle portraiture & filmmaking is the art of capturing the essence of your family in a natural and organic way that you can hold in your hands for generations to come.

I cannot wait to create with your love.

- Serena Nicole

Serena is more than capable of capturing the perfect portrait. What is so much more than that is how her portraits recreate the emotion of the day, allowing you to re-live the moment. She quickly becomes like family and we feel so blessed to have her in our life.
