Yoga Studio Shoot

Posted by on Oct 21, 2009 in Lifestyle | No Comments

In 2006, I took these shots of Michel, in hopes to familiarize myself with a digital camera since I had been shooting film up until then (actually, until 2008).  Now, I am 100% digital. I do get the occasitonal film request. I’ll never turn down a film shoot! A few days ago, Michel asked to use some of these images for her new yoga studio opening up in Eastlake– Seattle. These photos will soon be featured on her new website. It’s yet to be launched, but when it does, I am going to be thrilled to see my images on it. Michel and her business partner, Scott, were 2 of my yoga inspirations when I used to practice yoga in Seattle. Congrats you two, I am so excited to practice yoga in your new studio next time I am in town! Namaste. Here are some of my favorite shots from that session: 3_100306_nicolegoddardnnfp100306470_yoga 1_100306_nicolegoddardnnfp100306458_yoga_hands 7_100306_nicolegoddardnnfp100306499_yoga_pose 8_100306_nicolegoddardnnfp100306505_yoga_namaste 6_100306_nicolegoddardnnfp100306488_yoga_pose 2_100306_nicolegoddardnnfp100306464_back_yoga 5_100306_nicolegoddardnnfp100306478_yoga_armtwist 4_100306_nicolegoddardnnfp100306477_yogaPose 9_100306_nicolegoddardnnfp100306516_chataranga_pose_yoga

Congrats Renee & Josh {4 Sweet Locations in Orange County}

Posted by on Oct 5, 2009 in Uncategorized | No Comments

Renee and Josh got married!  It was a lovely, hot, sunny day on August 29, 2009.  It all started at the Inn at Laguna where Renee slipped her gown on. Everyone was laid back and ear to ear with smiles all day long.  Josh, one of the nicest guys ever, saw his bride for the first time on an ocean beach bluff where they were serenaded with love songs by a talented, local, street singer/guitarist. We really couldn’t have timed this more perfectly with him being right there. The background melodies were the perfect addition of the big reveal. It was so sweet! The Catholic mass ceremony was held a few miles away in Laguna Beach at St. Catherine de Siena. During the ceremony, Renee got so excited that she jumped the gun and kissed Josh before the priest announced, “You may kiss your bride.” It was so endearing and all the guests, including myself, definitely enjoyed this moment. After the cermony, we took the Limo Hummer to Heisler Park for family formals and wedding party photos. It was a bit of a challenge because it was the most popular weekend of the summer and it was packed with people.  We had limited shade to work with, and a ton of direct (hot)  sun. Not really a photographer’s ideal situation, but with the help of my rockin’ photographer assistant, Chyna Chaun-Farrell, we were able to create our own shade with my translucent reflector. We then drove to the the reception venue in Rancho Santa Margarita at the Tijeras Creek Golf Course. This beutiful spot is located in rolling terrain surrounded by rugged hillsides. I was able to spend extra time capturing more photos of the bride & groom before the party got started.  The hill top pics are some of my favorites. Here, we had fantastic light; a photographer’s dream. The party was so much fun. From rock songs of Journey to saucy, booty shakin’ Latin songs, everyone danced the night away…… Congrats Renee and Josh!  Your love for each other amazes me. It’s been a such a sweet delight getting to know you over the year.

Congrats Lindsey & Jason! {a wedding celebration at the seattle golf club}

What a FUN and beautiful wedding!!  Lindsey and Jason got married on August 22, 2009 at the cool and classy Seattle Golf Club.  Their wedding was a dream.

I’ve known Lindsey for years and I was so honored when she asked me to photograph her wedding. Her family are enthusiastic golfers, so the Seattle Golf Club was the perfect venue. They were surrounded by amazing family & friends and the weather was perfect for us. The food was yummy and the cakes (yes, plural) may just have been the best tasting I have ever had… my personal fav; peanut butter and chocolate. Mmmm… Thanks to the Director of Catering, Jennifer Barnhart and to my wonderful photo assistant, Amber Brickman– everything went smoothly.

Nearly all 200 guests were out on the dance floor getting down to the high-energy, amazing BAND from Oregon called Design Band.  These guys (and rockin’ gal) got everyone, including me, dancing ’til the very end of the wedding. Lindsey and Jason were whisked away in a old fashion car with their friends and families joyfully waving pretty sparklers.

Congrats to you both, Lindsey and Jason. I truly had an amazing time capturing your wedding and I wish you the very, very best!

Hope you enjoy these teasers:

All About You Bootcamp with Elaine & Narina

Posted by on Sep 24, 2009 in Headshots|Lifestyle | No Comments

The amazing trainers & co-owners of All About You! Wellness Bootcamp asked me to take some headshots and, well, we got lots of great, action shots in our session too. Little bit of yoga, kickboxing, resistance training, football, pilates and more. I had a great time catpuring them at a lovely park in La Cresenta, CA. We had open blue skies and nice, green grass. It’s so pretty up there…. and to imagine this park is only a stone throw away from Downtown Los Angeles.. well, sort of. A little about All About you! Wellness Bootcamp (taken straight from their sweet website):  “AAY is a unique fitness boot camp that addresses all aspects of your well-being. Each session is designed to challenge you at your own fitness level and to leave you feeling energized and revitalized.” This statement of theirs is VERY true. I need to start going myself. I’ve gone to 2 weeks of their bootcamp and I felt stronger and healthier with more energy during that time. It was awesome. If you are near the La Cresenta or Glendale areas, I would definitely recommend checking out their website for further details! GO, GO, GO, GO…. Elaine & Narina ~ I’ll see you in Bootcamp soon!  Thanks for a very fun shoot. Here’s a few of my favorite shots from our session: 20_052109_nicolegoddard__mg_9635

Congrats to Jenny & Conan | DeLille Cellars | Woodinville, WA

Posted by on Aug 25, 2009 in . Weddings . | No Comments

The first time I met Jenny & Conan was on Friday, July 17th — their wedding day.  This was my second time shooting at the DeLille Cellars in Woodinville, Washington. I am so happy I was given the opportunity to shoot there again since the first time I was there, it was raining cats and dogs! I never got to see the stunning grounds until this beautiful day.  The weather was perfect and I felt such a wonderful connection and love between Jenny & Conan. Their ceremony was officiated by Jenny’s father and they had 15 children in their wedding party! I was shocked how well behaved all the kids were. Such a dream. Congrats Jenny & Conan.  May you live a long and happy life together! Here are some of my favorite images from the day:
