I'm so glad you're here!


My name is Nichole Strain and I am the owner of Photography by Strain. It is so nice to virtually meet you.

I thought it would be good to give my followers a little bio about myself and what I love to do when I'm not behind the camera.


I grew up in an era where I was outside all day until the street lights turned on. I quickly grew to love the outdoors and still love to be outside all the time. Would you believe me if I told you that I don't watch TV? I would rather be outside than sitting inside watching TV.


If I'm not behind my camera, you can most likely find me with my husband and German Shepherds exploring the big woods in the Adirondack mountains. The endless miles pine trees and beautiful mountains make my heart full. I love it so much that I actually got married at the top of a ski hill in the Adirondacks. I highly recommend! The view was AMAZING!


I also love to balance my kayak with an 85 pound dog in the bow. I have yet to tip over- knock on wood. I also love to snowmobile in the Winter and ride my motorcycle in the Summer. And if you didn't believe me about not watching TV, you probably won't believe that my 85 lb German Shepard also rides the snowmobile and motorcycle with me.


If I'm not doing any of those activities, then I am either behind my camera or starring at my computer screen for hours editing sessions, editing my website, blogging, and posting to my business social media. Running a business by yourself is hard work but SO rewarding.


P.S. I love the love
