    "Nic is one of the nicest people I have ever met. The rest of this testimonial is not going to be about you, it's going to be to you. You have an incredible photographic eye. The way you capture the light amazes me every time I see it. Your insightful way of looking at life ( no matter how tough it can get ) inspires and enthralls me almost daily. Do not ever change. This world is a better place with you in it."

    "Visiting Nicole's stream makes me smile on a daily basis. The simplicity and beauty shown in her photography reminds me to look at everything in a different way. She is creative beyond words and a constant inspiration. I'm so happy to have found her!"

    "I love Nicole. She rocks my socks off, all the time, and I am lucky enough to get to hang with her pretty darn often...she is a bubble goddess, a bokeh sensei, she has sparkly stars hanging from her rearview mirror, AND she is full of SASS and kindness!! Highly recommended!! ;-)"

    "Quite possibly the queen of depth of field. *scratch that* She is THE owner of bokeh. Period. I am often inspired by the beautiful, often simpleness in her photos, but as simple and subtle they can be, the more breathtaking the result."

    "I love Nicole. It should be noted that I know her only through flickr and have never met her, but I love her. She is unfailingly honest in her photography, inviting everyone into her real world. I come here and linger, because I love the way she sees the world.

    I also like her taste in shoes.

    "If you spend time with Nicole, expect to feel sick later. Your face will hurt from laughing, your belly will feel like you did 100 sit-ups from the time you will spend doubled over in fits of hysteria.

    She is FUNNY, smart, has GREAT Emergency room stories, excellent taste in hats, and a decent hockey knowledge. (and apparently sexy little feet)

    OH! And she takes some of the best pictures on flickr. (Well she has a nice camera. so....)

    I love me my Nicole!"

    "Nicole laughs, holy fuck does she laugh! Her naturey crap rocks and she was born with an un-naturally large amount of excellent quality bokey. Nicole is just bubbling over with awesome."

    "One day I was walking through Santana Row on my way to meet the lovely Nicole. My first (and only since then!) Flickr meet up. As I was walking toward her and she was outside the cafe laughing and being the darling person that she is. I instantly felt that I knew her. There was none of that nervous stuff with her. Nicole is real and sweet and the kind of girl you want to be your friend. The kind of girl you want to drink beer with. Her pics are moving and sweet - just like her. Nicole pretty much fucking rocks. xxoo"

    "Nicole is a truly amazing photographer. I have watched her grow through watching her stream, and her journey in photography has been so inspiring that it has made me a better photographer along the way. Nicole is also beautifully human, which shines through in her photographs; she doesn't rely on processing to make her photos beautiful, and she, like her photos, has a glorious "take me as I am" element that I know other people notice and admire as well.

    Nicole is also a great friend and someone with whom I feel a great sense of camaraderie and sameness. This is really fantastic and I can't wait to get to know her better. Oh yeah, and we totally would have gotten into a lot of trouble together in younger years. ;-)"

    "Nicole's stream is always one of the first that I check out when I log on to Flickr. She has such a beautiful way of capturing life. The colors she captures are always amazing! Although I've never met her, I can tell she's a wonderful, smart, and spunky woman!! And her bokeh is absolutely bokehlicious!!"

    "What can I say about Nicole that could possibly do her justice. She has been one of my contacts almost as long as I have been on Flickr. A truly wonderful person who is always quick with a supporting word or a wonderfully witty compliment. I have loved watching Nicole grow into a bokeh Goddess. Her love of cupcakes, rainbows and all things retro truly endear her to my heart. Nicole is a fantastic person, a talented photographer and a terrific friend. I just lover her."
