nzaPhotography, LLC is owned and operated in Louisville, Kentucky by me - Nicole Zirnheld Aldridge. I have always had a passion for all forms of art ever since I was little. I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Western Kentucky University where I studied Advertising and Graphic Design. I then went on to work professionally as an Art Director and Web Designer for several years before becoming a stay-at-home mother to my three children.
I started getting serious about photography after becoming a mom and during my work as a birth doula. My clients liked my work so much that they asked me to photograph their babies.
Photography was a natural extension to my background in design and also allowed me to explore my creativity while still being able to stay home with my young children. I began learning everything I could about the craft and still continue to learn everyday.
