Welcome!

I’m Nicola, a lifestyle and documentary photographer in Victoria, BC, specializing in newborn, child, and family photography. 

I have a passion for documenting candid moments - from quiet morning cuddles to love-filled vows - and believe that everyday life should be celebrated. I am honoured to tell peoples’ stories and record moments that will become cherished memories.

Though I wasn’t born in Victoria, I’ve always lived on an island and the ocean is my happy place.  I feel extremely lucky to live in a city surrounded by rocky beaches and wet forests, and I try to bring our west coast landscape into my photos.

I am mama to a bulldog and a rescue cat who provide constant entertainment and laughter (and incredulous head-shaking). My nephews, Alex and Ben, are a source of joy who remind me how important it is to play and that the world is a magical place. My husband, Kris, is my biggest source of support and a great business partner. He does everything from bringing me tea and snacks during late-night editing marathons to holding reflectors and equipment when needed. We currently live on unceded Lkwungen territory.

If you have any questions or to book a session, please fill out the online contact form or email hello@nicolareiersen.ca.

I look forward to meeting you!

 

 

Photography That Gives Back 

I am a huge proponent of giving back to the community and try to do so as often as possible. I am currently a volunteer photographer with the Feel Good Campaign, a local initiative started by makeup artist Melanie Baird and hair stylist Danielle Bennett, and was previously a volunteer event photographer for the Canadian Cancer Society

Starting in March, 2018, 10% of all session and event fees will be donated to the Victoria Native Friendship Centre.
