a passionate creator for families
Welcome to my website! I am Lauren Williamson, owner of L Nicole Photography. I specialize in photography for newborns, children, families, and maternity, and headshots in Richmond, VA and surrounding areas.
I am originally from Northern Virginia but have been in the Richmond metro area for six years. I have a BS in Marketing from Old Dominion University but photography and creative projects have long been a passion of mine. My daughter was finally the push I needed to start my photography business as I believe there is something so sweet and precious about capturing those little toes and fingers!
I mentioned starting a photography business to my husband, who is a firm believer in following your passion. He thought it was a great idea and I immediately sought information about the industry and registered for numerous training sessions. I have trained with some of the top newborn photographers from DC, Tennessee, and Australia which included learning proper safety for newborn posing and over 40 hours of education for newborn photography. Each year I continue to invest in my education with seminars and hands on training classes. I believe in providing my clients with the best experience and that comes from continuous training. My company is also licensed, insured, and certified as a woman and minority owned business.

... & HER FAMILY
I am a proud mom to a beautiful DIVA daughter and a handsome FUNNY little boy. I have been married to my husband (my best friend) for over 12 years. When I’m not behind the camera you most likely will find me shopping, working out, traveling or planning a vacation, visiting different wineries, listening to music, or hanging out with family and friends. I love carbs, coffee, Thai food, tacos, sour straw candy, and gourmet salads.
Each family is unique and different and I believe in documenting just that. I would love the opportunity to help capture and document your story through photographs.
“The most important thing in the world is family and love.” –John Wooden
LETS DIVE INTO LAUREN + DREW
Pretty much swear we are SOULMATES. He is the calm to my craziness and the voice of reason I need.
WHERE DID YOU MEET?
We met in college at Old Dominion University.
HOW DID THE PROPOSAL GO?
We lived apart for 2 years while Drew played professional basketball overseas! He came home for a week during Christmas in 2008 and popped the question before he had to leave to go back! We then spent an entire year apart again after we got married!
WHAT ARE THE PET PEEVES?
He hates when I put my cold feet on him. My biggest pet peeve is when he leaves stuff out after using it!
hey, we're human, we all have them!
