I’m Jennifer, a natural light lifestyle photographer specializing in family, maternity, newborns, birthdays, special events and children/branding. Based in Orange County, CA, I love documenting real and raw connections, kids in their element, and parties exuding love and laughter. I do so in a modern and timeless way, utilizing beautiful light whenever possible.

My style is candid and unprompted, making each session unique and special. My goal is to laugh and have fun, always. Ultimately, I want all that are involved to feel at ease so that I may capture those fleeting, precious moments, big or small, that make each day worthwhile.

Hi! I’m Nicole, the redhead behind the lens at Nicole Orue photography. I am a natural light, lifestyle photographer with a passion for capturing the connections between families.

As a mom, I know that we are often the ones behind the cameras.  During my sessions, I want every mama to relax, enjoy, and walk away knowing that she will have beautiful images with her babies and family to treasure forever. I believe that each family is unique, with a love that binds them together and reveals itself in those magical in-between moments. I strive to photograph each family in a way that is real, artistic, and full of light. I cannot wait to capture your story.
