“Every second vibrates within our Present moment, our NOW. In one split second of awareness, we can create a Life full of Light, Joy, and Love.” ~ Jacqueline Ripstein

Even if some days seem extremely long and trying with our children, childhood in general is very brief. In only a few short years your young children will become young adults, then adults, and at one point they will leave your safe nest to start their own life adventures. Having images from the different ages and phases of your children's life is something that you will treasure forever. Even if you regularly take snapshots, having professionally created and printed art work is a unique way to preserve memories of your family as a whole.

Inspired by Now Photography by Gizella Nyquist is a boutique (full service) portrait studio specializing in fine art children's and family pictures. Gizella's mission is to create custom photo art for your family through a photography session that is completely tailored to you.

As part of her photographic services Gizella

  • provides an exceptional customer service, including individualized attention to your family's needs (help with styled outfits, choosing the perfect location, etc.),
  • enjoys a fun and as stress free as possible morning or afternoon with your family at a beautiful OC location during your photo shoot,
  • creates photographic art that portrays your family in a contemporary style (capturing the real moments instead of posing them all),
  • provides expert guidance to you through a comfortable, not rushed process of choosing the images that you love the most,
  • provides a very simple, but still versatile product line to order from,
  • and delivers very high quality and unique printed art, including free digital files of the ordered prints.
If you are looking for a photographer who will make you and your family feel and look special and exclusive both during your photo session and in your wall art, email or call (720-402-8225) Gizella to set up a pre-session consultation.
We live a full life when we accept and live in the present moment. Gizella's goal is to capture your child and your family in the present moment, in that split second, for you to preserve the memories of NOW to be relived in the FUTURE.
