My hobby of photography began in 2006 when I first stepped into a darkroom. In 2011 I graduated from the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee with a BFA in photography and a minor is journalism and media communication.

For the 5+ years my passion for food photography has transformed into a profession. I've had the privilege of working with many great people, Dan Fox of Heritage Tavern, Matt Van Nest of Brasserie V, and Chris Hynes of Chris Hynes Photography, to name a few.

You'll find my work, in print and online publications, in monthly releases of Madison Magazine. I photographed the 2013 Food & Wine Show and the 2014 Beer & Cheese Festival along with a handful of other projects for Isthmus. I've also done work for Food Fight Restaurant Group.

I'm available for commercial projects, portrait sessions, and weddings. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or if you are interested in a consultation.


"I have worked with Nicole for many years and she is one of my primary food photographers for our Savor department in Madison Magazine as well as being someone I frequently call on to shoot for our food features and cover stories. Aside from having a knack with food photos, her portrait work is great too which is nice for multi-dimensional pieces that require images of chefs or waitstaff."
-TIm Burton, Madison Magazine Art Director
