Invest in Your Memories

Custom photography is about art, professionalism and client service – not just clicking a button. When you decide to invest with me, you’re investing in a lifetime experience. From the very beginning you’ll notice a huge difference. You’re not some customer that I’ll forget about tomorrow. I want to watch your family grow and be a very special part of it!

When you book with Nicole Smith Photography, please expect nothing short of the most exceptional quality of professionalism, customer service and above all, artistic nature.

I love getting to know my clients and feel very privileged to be able to watch your family grow!


Each session will require a non-refundable $75 retainer fee. This fee will be applied to the remainder of your session. This just ensures we can get you confirmed and on our calendar! Digital Collections start at $400.


Because of the personal and very diverse nature of each session, I ask that we set up a meeting to get to know one another. I want to make sure I am the right fit for you and that you are very confident in your decision. With the variety of options, I want to make sure we are creating a very special customized session to fit your every need. Come sit on the couch and let’s talk about life, love, and your family!


We offer “build your own” newborn sessions, which is NEW and something very unique to us. You get to pick what is most important to you in a session. We wanted to give all our clients the right to pick and choose what they would like and also be able to fit everyone’s budget. Each option includes a price and a set number of digital files with a print release OR you can purchase a collection with both digitals and amazing professional product.

Newborn sessions are generally booked prior to baby’s arrival. This ensures there is enough availability for your session and allows for plenty of planning time! Bookings are based on your tentative due date and are finalized once baby is born. Sessions are best completed in the first 21 days of life and can last anywhere from 30 minutes to 3 hours depending on the options you choose.

Newborn sessions take place in Nicole Smith’s store-front studio in Scottsbluff, NE. We have an amazing selection of studio props. Based on information you provide us prior to the session, we will creatively choose the most stunning session set ups that you will love! Baby will be the main focus for the session, however including parents and siblings in a few shots can be quite magical and we definitely encourage it!

PLEASE be sure to do your research when looking for a newborn photographer – don’t merely choose someone because they may be the least expensive, there’s usually a reason – this is not just any other photo session – this is your newborn. This is a session that needs to be provided by someone that is knowledgeable in how to handle your love and most importantly, the SAFETY of your little miracle. I have studied, trained, and now taught other photographers all around the world these incredibly important skills. It is NOT a skill everyone posses (most do not) and you should never assume this about a photographer.

*For safety reasons we ALWAYS use an assistant for ALL our Newborn Sessions!

Maternity Mini Session Add-on: Includes either an outdoor or studio mini maternity session of about 30-45 minutes with complimentary full resolution images via download.

Travel Newborn Sessions: I have been so blessed to have been able to travel the world both teaching newborn photography as well as doing sessions. I would love to come see YOU! If you are interested in having me come to either your home here in Scottsbluff, NE and the surrounding areas or across the US, I’m game! Let me know your thoughts and we will work it out!

Our Sitter Sessions are perfect for your little one who is sitting (baby must be sitting unassisted) and pulling up, but not yet quick enough to run away from the camera! These sessions are perfect for parents wanting to capture their baby between 6 months and 12 months of age (7 months is highly recommended), but are open to babies of any age as long as they are 12 months or younger, sitting up and are not walking!

Our Cake Smash Sessions are for babies turning the big one! A studio cake smash session is a fun, joyful way to commemorate the milestone of your little one’s first birthday.This is a great way for you to capture your little one’s 1 year milestone! We provide a 1-of-a-kind cake for your session as well!

We offer a BUBBLE BATH and Portraits as add ons to your cake smash! If you would like to add on this option, you will see it once you start the booking process!

One baby per session. Please also book a family session if you wish to include older siblings, mom or dad (this will be done in a separate session).

I keep my mini family photography sessions fun for the whole family. We will laugh together and play together and I may be silly, make crazy noises or get down on the ground and get dirty, but it is all for the perfect sweet smile… That’s what it’s all about! We may do a little bit of posing for grandma but I mostly want to see you and your family play together and be yourself, capture you as you are interacting together and loving each other. This is all about you and your family and capturing those everyday looks, smiles and giggles that you always want to remember!

I am currently offering mini family sessions year around for families of 5 or less. All my outdoor sessions are booked in the evenings, just before sunset and are done on location close to Scottsbluff, NE (unless we decide on a location of your choosing). My studio family sessions are booked Monday – Friday anytime before 2:30pm. If you are looking for a longer session, you can choose that as an add-on option when booking!

My senior sessions are not your typical session.  We’ll find the location(s) perfect for you and what you want.  I’m not all about sticking you in a studio, snapping a few photos and you’re done.  Location!  We’ll have fun, yap about life and you get the most out of your session.  Some of my collections give you the opportunity to have multiple locations, multiple outfit changes and more!
