Today we’d like to introduce you to Nicole Peguero.
Nicole, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
I never thought I would become a photographer. I went into college as a PreMed student, spending countless hours in my science books. But, my heart and soul was always in art. Being creative is what truly made me happy and sane. It wasn’t until after my first daughter was born, and I was gifted my first DSLR, that I realized I might actually be pretty good at this whole photography thing! Photos of my daughter turned into photos of other families. I began to educate myself in photography and techniques, and my business was born! Photography has truly made me come out of my quiet-creative self, and forced me to grow as, not only a creative, but also a business woman. I now love every single day I get to work with others, capturing special memories in their lives that they will be able to cherish forever. It excites me and feeds my creative soul.
We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
My art of choice is photography. Being able to capture the radiance of a pregnant woman, the tiny toes of a newborn, the laughter of family… it’s all so beautiful. I am honored to be able to freeze those tiny moments of life for my clients. Moments that they will then be able to look back upon and cherish for a lifetime!
Do current events, local or global, affect your work and what you are focused on?
I believe that the role of artists has always been, and will always be, to tell a story or share a moment. Each artist has their own interpretation of a moment, but each portrays it beautifully.
Do you have any events or exhibitions coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
My photos can be found and supported on my social media outlets, as well as my website.
