nicoledianne Brought out the paints today for a little inspiration
Last week I posted about "beginning anywhere rather than nowhere." This week I want to encourage you to exhale the doubts that creep in and haunt your successes. You are capable, you are worth it, you exude qualities that will excel you into success! Speak these things boldly to yourself this week and exhale those doubts!🏼

nicoledianne A little late to the party but it's the last day of the #RisingTideChallenge so I couldn't let it pass without a proper #fridayintroductions with 5 random things about me you might not have known
I'm super clumsy and burn myself quite frequently (accidentally, of course). The the scar on my right arm in my profile photo is from burning myself while working as a barista at Starbucks ️. I love .. Repeat, love British YouTubers.
Unless I have somewhere fun or interesting to go, I rarely wear makeup🏼. I met my husband sophomore year of high school but we didn't start dating until the week after we graduated #kindofhighschoolsweethearts #notreally
My dad & I have the exact same toe shapes. Compare them side by side & we're identical toe twins, it's the weirdest. 🏼🏻 Now that you know some of my weirds, tell me yours below 🏻

nicoledianne Here’s a little peek into BTS of #nicolediannephotos
My big secret? Most days I ditch the pretty office and work straight from my laptop, cozied up in bed or on the couch with Pretty Little Liars streaming on Netflix ;) Working from home at #wallycottage definitely has it’s perks!
What are you watching on Netflix right now?

nicoledianne Hey y’all! 🏻 It’s been a while since I’ve introduced myself and there’s some fun new faces around here so I thought it might be a good time!
I’m Nicole! I live in California’s capitol, Sacramento & I’m a full-time wedding & lifestyle photographer #nicolediannephotos

I'm super short which sometimes makes photography challenging #shortpeopleproblems, but I make it work , my hair is naturally wavy, and I didn't embrace the wave until after high school! I believe in drinking coffee daily, absorbing myself in a great book any chance I can, and living in a home filled with plants!
My hubby & I recently purchased our first home and we’re in the process of renovating the place from floor to ceiling. Follow our progress at #wallycottage!
This little space has been so fun for me over the years. Working from home means I’m alone 90% of the time, so Insta gives me that opportunity to connect with people from all over! I’m so flattered you’ve decided to join me here, and hope you stick around for a while :) Now tell me something about you! 🏻

nicoledianne If we’re being totally honest, this picture is completely staged. You all know that though, right?
There’s no coffee in my mug, I definitely don’t keep a wooden cutting board on my desk, and minutes prior to this my desk was full of hard drives, a frayed phone charger, old receipts and a lot of dust.
Social Media is funny isn’t it? We see perfectly curated squares of lives we “wish” we had. I like to share pretty things in this space because it makes me happy, but don’t let that fool you into thinking I live a "Pinterest-worthy life.” I assure you the mess to the right of my desk would beg otherwise ;) Happy real life Monday lovelies!

nicoledianne Marriage is a lot of things. It's work, it's compromise, it's saying I love you even when I don't like you, it's working together, it's building memories, it's working through trials, it's figuring out life together. My hubby and I are coming up on 5 years of marriage this year and that is crazy to me! Marriage is different and yet so much of what I imagined it would be as a little girl.
It's so easy to get caught up in the details of your wedding day, emailing your vendors, making arrangements for the out of town family, bridal party drama, honeymoon plans...etc.
Don't forget what this day is about! It's about starting your forever, it's about after, "I do." I know there are a million and one things to be done but please, please don't forget to prepare your hearts for this special and sacred time! #nicolediannephotos

nicoledianne My hubby hung these shelves in my office this weekend and it brightened up my space so much! Can't wait to change these up more often than I probably should ;) I constantly changed around the decor in my room when I was a little girl. I've carried that trait into adult life and it's one that I love. Gotta keep the creative juices flowing!

nicoledianne I think it's so easy to get caught up in the habit of making excuses. We spend so much time looking at what other people are doing, wishing it was us. We see people following their dreams, getting fit, traveling the world, learning new things, doing all of the things WE want to do. And yet we sit and watch, never moving, never pursuing, waiting on the sidelines hoping it will come our way regardless.
Truth be told, it's never gonna happen if we don't make that first move! I've spun in circles countless times trying to make that first move but falling short because I didn't even know where to begin. But guess what? Beginning ANYWHERE is better than never starting!
This week I had a shift in my mindset on some things so I chose to begin again in two areas of my life that I want to strengthen.
I'm on day 3 of working out and eating clean 🏻 and honestly feeling great. My body feels energized, I feel proud and I can't wait to see the trickle effects in the rest of my life.
And two, I'm pressing reset on a few things in my business. Trying to refocus and nail down what my place in the industry is and how Jesus wants to use me. I've started reading a great marketing book and I'm ready for some changes!
Don't worry about finding the right starting place, because if we do that it'll never come. Instead, commit to pursuing what you want with all that you have and just begin anywhere

nicoledianne I thought our only option was to mount our TV above the mantle, but not so with this new credenza! The mantle lives! Our family offered us this super sweet mid century piece that has been living at our family cabin up in Tahoe! I'm still pinching myself..mid century modern, family heirloom piece for the win 🏻 I feel so lucky #wallycottage 3w

nicoledianne New maternity session on the blog! I think Dustin's face says it all. It was one of my favorites..perhaps because it was my cousin..perhaps because the location was sentimental.. perhaps because they looked beautiful.. perhaps all of the above! Link in profile #nicolediannephotos 1mon

Normal nicole
nicoledianne It's a bit of a sad day at #wallycottage ... My pretty mantle might be seeing its last days. We were forced to rearrange our living room and our only option might be to mount the tv over our fireplace! Still trying to find a way around it because I'm dreaming of all the different seasons of the year coming to life on our mantle 🌲 dramatic much, I know ... But tell me I'm not alone in mantle decor dreamland? 🏻 1mon

nicoledianne "A rising tide lifts all boats." For the longest time I felt so alone in the photography industry. I had nowhere to talk through my business struggles, and experienced extreme culture shock working for myself in the beginning. Talking about community, working through those things, and #TuesdaysTogether on the blog today! (Link in profile) #nicolediannephotos 2mon
