Hi, I’m cHELSEY nicHOLS of c.nic photography and I am a photographer for Springdale, Fayetteville, Rogers, Bentonville and surrounding areas! I’d like to tell you a little about myself. I am a mid-western girl who was born and raised in central Nebraska. Back in my early teens, I became very interested in taking pictures. Since then, I have been lovingly labeled a “picture fanatic” by my friends and family. Everyone knows if I am present, pictures will most likely be snapped at some point. I believe life is beautiful and the good times should be captured and remembered!

I am married to a wonderful guy named Corey! We met while he was attending the University of Nebraska College of Dentistry. We fell in love, got married and now live in his hometown of Springdale, Arkansas. I would have never guessed this is where I would end up, but I couldn’t be happier! Northwest Arkansas is such a wonderful place to live. In my 2 years here, I have already grown fond of the friendly people, lovely weather, beautiful surroundings and, of course, the Razorbacks!

I love taking care of people and I've had the privilege of working as a labor & delivery and pediatric nurse for the past seven years, but my camera has always been nearby. A few years ago, I decided I wanted to improve my skills and understanding of photography, so I began taking some photography courses. This is when taking pictures really grew from a hobby into a passion for me! Photography excites me and challenges me because there is so much one can learn about life through the lens of a camera. Now I am starting my own photography business and working at the pediatric clinic on a part time basis. I feel so blessed to be able to enjoy the best of both worlds! I look forward to the people I am going to meet on this journey and getting the opportunity to share some of the most special moments of their lives with them. From newborn baby photos to 90 year-old birthday parties… everyone has a story. I’d love to help capture yours!
