Baby Cormac

My new little nephew, Cormac, was born on October 9th. I got to go up to Brigham City to hang out with my sister-in-law, Sarah, and take pictures of the new baby and his brother and sister. Cormac is already showing a little personality. So fun!

Sarah and Kids

My sister-in-law Sarah wanted to get some pictures of her and her kids before their third baby was born. They came down and we had a great time chatting and taking pictures in between. Their baby has since been born, little Cormick, who I get to take pictures of next week and I can't wait! Love you guys and congratulations!

The Pounds

I had a great time with three of my favorite people. With the mix of tantrums, treats, and kittens it was a fun afternoon.

About Nickie

My first experience with photography was actually a disaster. It was in 1994 when I was on the yearbook staff in Junior High, which gave me the opportunity to take pictures of events during the school year. My dad let me use his 30-year-old 35mm Nikon that didn't have an automatic setting on it. My friend was also on the yearbook staff so together we would go around school and take pictures. She had a fully automatic SLR so we were quite the team and felt we could handle anything. Well, I hadn't learned a thing about photography or the big piece of metal I was carrying around so I would just do what my friend did and that was to look through the view finder, turn my lense a bunch of times, and click away.

After taking the pictures, we also learned how to develop our own film. I'm a pretty precise person so I followed the directions to a "t" to make sure my film was developed just right. After working in the darkroom, the only thing I had to show for all my hard work was a blurry, black and white picture of a Student Body Officer dressed up like a Power Ranger. It was a bummer experience and not very encouraging. Since then, I've learned a lot about photography and what it means when you adjust your lense and all sorts of other very necessary things when it comes to photography.

I'm also a designer at heart and I love color and anything that has to do with it. For me, it's not the piece of art that appeals to me, it's the fine lines and intricate elements that fascinate me and leaves me thinking... how'd they do that?

I am continually learning from other designers and photographers from books and the internet. My goal is to become a master photographer as well as a great web and graphic designer; the type of artist that people look at my work and think... how'd she do that?
