Nicole Pellegrino is the owner and photographer of Snips and Snails Photography and specializes in maternity, newborn, and child portrait photography. Snips and Snails Photography is best known for Nicole’s artistic newborn portraiture in the first 2 weeks of life.
Nicole’s style is relaxed, fun and unique as she focuses on capturing expressive moments in her boutique portrait studio or on-location. While the studio is equipped with studio lighting, Nicole prefers to photograph her subjects whenever possible using the warm natural light that filters through the windows surrounding the studio. On-location sessions are held in the Chambersburg Pennsylvania and Hagerstown Maryland vicinity (to include Waynesboro, Mercersburg and Greencastle), in a park, urban or rustic setting (or some combination of all three!)
Nicole has always had a passion and talent for photography, but first completed her undergraduate degree in Finance and Masters in Public Administration. Nicole worked as a senior budget analyst for the Assistant Secretary of the Navy at the Pentagon for several years before returning to the Hagerstown area in 2005. At this time, Nicole began to pursue photography as a business. Nicole has studied photography extensively through classes and attends seminars and hands-on workshops of nationally acclaimed photographers to perfect her art. Snips and Snails Photography is a proud member of the Professional Photographer’s of America.
The mission of Snips and Snails Photography is to provide clients with beautiful images of their children and an experience that is unsurpassed in quality and customer service. Nicole accomplishes this through her love for children and her art of photography. After all, it is the photographs that will live on to tell all of our life stories long after memories fade.
