Nicole lives on the East Coast right now, but loves spending time in her family's neighborhood within the private Laguna Beach community of Emerald Bay. In addition to competitive swimming she also plays the flute, but wanted the session to focus more on her love and nostalgia for Emerald Bay and the beach there, which, admittedly, is a gorgeous beach. But who's really looking at the beach when you have a smile as sunny as Nicole's? Nicole just has the most glorious long blonde hair. I am sure that she'll eventually style it dramatically different as interesting young women often do, so I made sure we got some images that show it off so she has something to look back on if she ever cuts or colors it---or even 40 years from now when she's gracefully going gray!Nicole's graduating year!
