Hello, I’m Nikol Schwab! 

Thank you for your interest in my sacred work, and for desiring to know a bit more about me… 

I've been a Photographic Artist for many years - creating in a variety of genres from landscape to lifestyle - yet it wasn’t until I fully allowed my spirituality, intuitive gifts, and personal journey to GUIDE my photography, that my true photographic expression revealed itself and Shutter Shaman Images was unearthed.  

It is the shedding of my own fear around BEING SEEN, and a deep dive into Divine Feminine embodiment that continues to propel me to co-create empowering images of and for women, and to facilitate the shedding of similar fears in our collective.

We live in a provoking time and a poignant moment in history! I’m sure you can relate to experiencing a very strong calling, nudge, or stir to BE the change you wish to see and to create in the world.  It is from my own stir, my gifts as a photographic artist, and my personal quest to understand what it truly means to BE in my Feminine Power, that I awakened to this sacred work and to a unique process of guiding and assisting other women to their own powerful version of embodiment.

I've discovered that there are aspects of the Divine Feminine that every woman may embody effortlessly, keep hidden out of fear, or desire to embody but struggle.  It is in the exploration of these Divine Feminine aspects that my Intuitive Photographic Sessions occur, and is the sacred space where the co-creation of photographic art is captured.   The time is NOW to BE the change we desire and need in our world!

What begins with a guided journey into how the Divine Feminine expresses herself , it is the process of embodiment that is giving RISE to the Goddess within and around us.   I stand in AWE of the healing power this process and these images hold not only for the one being photographed, but also for the collective.  Bearing witness to a Matrix of Divine Feminine Goddesses -living all over the world- illuminating, assembling, and claiming their sacred space in the world gives me great hope for humanity.

It is my absolute HONOR to photograph spiritually centered, open-hearted women whereby capturing the beauty within their many faces, in their limitless forms, and from their differing phases of life.  The time is NOW, and your unique expression of the Divine Feminine DESERVES to be photographed!  It would be my honor to photograph YOU, and I'd be delighted to have you join in the Divine Feminine movement we are each in the midst of enlivening and of celebrating!

I have always felt self-conscious in front of a camera. Nikol created a safe environment and thoughtful perspective. I actually enjoyed the session and was able to relax. It shows in the images!

While the photos are fantastic, what I loved most was the experience. The experience of “being seen”,  being really okay with it, and having fun while doing it.

Thank you, Nikol, for your gift to hold space and for capturing the beauty within.      ~Cat

The session with Nikol was uplifting. It helped me to tap into a part of myself that I knew was there but was lying dormant.  

During the session, Nikol helped me to see that part of myself again.  Having the images to reflect on afterwards is the bonus!  

Thank you, Nikol!      ~Sharon
