Photography for everyday adventurers

and outdoor lovers

I believe that the photo where you’re cracking up from the cheesy joke your fiancé made will bring you more joy forty years from now than the one where you’re copying one of the “top five poses for engagement sessions” from Pinterest. I believe that your kids would rather look back on your wedding by flipping through the pages in an heirloom album than by scrolling through your Facebook profile. I believe that when you go on an adventure and have fun with your photographer, you’ll remember the session as more than an errand to check off your to do list, and you’ll love the photos all the more for it.

Working With Me

If you’re looking for a photographer who will take you to the same spot as every other client, then tell you exactly where to sit, stand, and look for an hour, this is not meant to be. If you are looking for the cheapest photographer around, you might not value the attention I put into every session. And that’s cool, you should find a photographer that fits your needs.

If you’d rather explore a new trail, eat a picnic dinner overlooking a lake, have a snowball fight with your partner, get some sun on your face and wind in your hair, and go on a badass adventure without worrying about getting some dirt on your shoes, I want to be your photographer. I will capture the quiet moments and the loud laughter, the way you look at your family with love in your eyes, the hugs and kisses that happen because they feel right and not because I told you to pose for the camera. You are not there for me; I am there for you.

Colorado & Beyond

I live, work, and play in Boulder, Colorado, but you can often find me wandering the world. I get really effing excited about shooting in new locations, and if you live someplace I’ve never visited (or that I want to revisit) there’s a good chance I’ll skip travel fees to work with you. Shoot me a message to see if I’ll be coming to your area soon, or if we can make it happen!

I also go back to visit my friends & family in Norway every year, and often add another Nordic country as part of the trip. If you live anywhere within Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, or Iceland, I would love to work with you the next time I’m in the area!

Happy People

Jennifer & Corey

Nina was so much fun to work with! We felt so comfortable and Nina knew exactly how to capture our love and laughter!

Melissa & Scott

Gorgeous photos and quality work. Nina was fun to work with and we felt so natural during the shoot! She was timely and easy to communicate with. I would recommend her to anyone.

Itly & Andie

Nina is sooo kind, and was so patient while Andie and I tried to navigate our awkward bodies to look as natural as possible. She’s easy to work with and really has an eye for catching the magic of the moment!

Alaina

Nina worked fantastically with less-than-ideal lighting (random stormy afternoon in Colorado–though you can’t tell by her pictures!) to capture beautiful pictures! She made me feel so comfortable and was a lot of fun to work with!
