Hello! I'm Nicola Herring, the photographer and artist behind the camera. I'm so glad you stopped by. Much of my photography is inspired by the Keb' Mo' song, "Life is Beautiful." It is my desire to never loose sight of the beauty and wonder around me even when life can feel messy. Everyone's story is beautiful regardless of circumstance. Through photography as my creative outlet, I am honored to share in treasuring your unique life stories as they happen.
I do life with my handsome hubby, David and we call the wonderful little city of Lancaster Pennsylvania our home. I am a mommy through adoption to the most joyful little boy in the world. Motherhood has forever changed my heart (and photography!) My friends definitely know me as a #crazycatlady. Yes, I am “that friend” but listen, kitties get me. I have been known to devour an entire bag of Gibbles cheesecurls or an entire bar of creamy European chocolate in one sitting without regrets. I love coffee, jazz music, being in the kitchen cooking and warm winter beanies. I'm so excited to meet you and hear about your beautiful life story!
Danielle is the backbone to most every newborn session we do. With years of hands on experience with infants, she is the one who is your baby’s bestie. She listens and they calm, she soothes a baby like it’s a super power.
Outside of the studio, Danielle is passionate about family. She believes she was created to be a part of family restoration, through providing council and guidance to restore biological families or by helping bring families and children together through adoption or foster care. She lives this passion out with her Husband, Ryan, as they parent their 9 children and very first grandchild, all of which have entered their family through very different beginnings.
A few of Danielle's favorite things include the change in seasons, deep conversations, Ethiopian coffee and the moment she sees a plan amidst the chaos.
