About me

In the world of photography, you get to share a captured moment with other people
— James Wilson

Nicole Gilligan Photography is located in Margate, New Jersey, and serves the Jersey Shore from Atlantic City to Cape May and beyond.  Specializing in newborns, families, children, and high school seniors.  

Mom. Wife. Friend. Nurse. Photographer. 

Creating magical and memorable portraits of newborns, children, and families is my specialty. I describe my style as clean, classic, and simple.  I believe that the most perfect photographs are far from perfect. I strive to capture genuine moments, connections, and love and want you see that every time you look at your photos. I do my best to make our time together easy, fun, and stress free.  

I am a native Philadelphian who spent my summers living and working in North Wildwood, NJ. I love being a mom to 2 gorgeous daughters, and a wife to my amazingly supportive husband.  The beach, the sun, and the ones I love feed my heart and soul.  As a neonatal intensive care unit nurse I list newborns amongst my most favorite little people to photograph!
