About Nicole

First things first, I am a Christian and without my Lord's guidance I would not be where I am today. A child of the one true King, I've stumbled along the way but he is always there when I need him.

All of my life I've been drawn to images of other cultures and peoples; the first memory being of my great-grandfather's home being filled ceiling to floor with an extensive collection of National Geographic magazine. These faraway places inspired me to capture life and its beauty.

Starting in 2003, I decided that I wanted to make photography my career, so I attended art school and university; and continue to attend as many workshops and online courses as possible in both photography and tv/film production. It wasn't until 2011 that I chose to launch Cloud 9 Imagery.

Cloud 9 Imagery was created with Heaven in mind; not as a place but as a perception. To me, Heaven on Earth is a place where each unique person can become who they want to be and I'm very passionate about bringing out the best in each of my clients who I now consider my family.

Whether it's your characteristics, your style, your talent, your belief system, your loves or even your hates, I want to show the world why YOU are SPECIAL! You were created for a reason and what makes you different is what makes you beautiful!

As a wife, a mother, and a daughter, I know full well that there are so many missed moments each day because we're distracted with what life throws at us; be it work, exercise, class, parenting, etc. Regardless, our families are our LIFE and they are the BIG Picture!

Let me capture you and your loved ones; creating priceless heirloom portraits that will tell your story and forever capture those moments that can't be replaced. Let me stop time for your family and give you that moment engrained on beautiful fine art prints for generations of your family to share and remember your legacy.

After all, LIFE is the BIG Picture...share it with the world!

I want to thank God, my husband, my children, my mama and daddy, and all of my family and friends for believing in me when I didn't. I love you all.

Nicole Thompson
