"We absolutely adore the photographs that Nicole took of our family. We have had so many comments on them and they are something that we can treasure for many years to come - they are timeless! Nicole was great with the kids and really made us feel comfortable throughout the photo session and we all had so much fun!" – Caroline W. Mosman Park, WA

“I'd like to take this opportunity to say a heart-felt thank you for your beautiful photos, both of my pregnancy and our newborn son, Wyatt. You are a wonderful person who's professional manner and artistic talent is a true gift. The beautiful photos of our son express the love and passion you share for all children and your profession as a photographer. Our family has been truly blessed to have met such a special person. Thank you." – Krystina S. Broome, WA

“We cannot say enough about Nicole's talent as a photographer.  Nicole was able to capture the intricate personalities of our children on film.  We treasure her artwork and receive constant praise from others that see her work on display in our home and offices.  It was an absolute pleasure working with Nicole!" – Stephanie S. MD, USA

"We both just wanted to say a BIG BIG thank you to Nicole for capturing our gorgeous photographs of our new little man... She did an amazing job hobbling around (on a broken leg) making us feel so comfortable and relaxed. Our friends and family adore our photographs and I just want everyone to share the same experience we did with such a talented lady. Nicole created photos which represent us and our lifestyle - exactly what we wanted. Thank you Nicole, it was so lovely to meet you." – Brooke & Chris T. Beldon, WA

"Nicole came into our home and within an amazingly short time had us feeling so at ease she felt like an old family friend.  My daughters are at the age where they fall into those “magazine" poses with plastic smiles.  Nicole worked miracles in capturing their authentic look and helping them to have fun just fooling around. I look forward to finding an excuse to have the next lot of shots done" – Tracie C. Shelley, WA

"Nicole has an incredible ability to capture an innocent moment in a child's life that you can hang on your wall and cherish forever. The amazing ability to capture the soul of a child on film, is a result of Nicole's passion for photography, children and the love they share with their families." – Allie K. Subiaco, WA

"Our experience with Nicole was warm and very pleasant. My children were given great respect, and Nicole was more than happy to work around their needs and desires. Nicole is a credit to her profession and we look forward to her photographing our family again." – Robyn P. Mt Lawley, WA

"Photography is a private and personal journey. It's an eclectic collection of passion, vision, empathy and determination."  - Nicole Boenig McGrade
