Nicky Wilmas – Owner + Lead Photographer
I am 33 years old and from St.Louis, MO. I’ve always had a passion for art and fashion, and truly stumbled onto my love of photography. my first camera was something I bought from a garage sale when I was 10 years old. I loved posing my golden retriever in front of a back drop and finding new ways to use light to my advantage. Soon my puppy became board with me and I had to venture out and try something new. My friends were more than willing to let me use them and fine tune my craft. I feel as if I’m learning everyday and that my style and eye changes every second. After 15 years of playing with my camera I decided to take it a step further. And again through the help of my friends I learned that I could make this thing I enjoyed, into a career I loved. In 2010 I started my first company Nicolette Katharine Photography. With the help of my then boyfriend I got started with a small canon snapshot. I loved the colors I could get using that camera and I vowed to never use another brand from then on. My company grew and grew. Then in 2012 I decided to grow some more. With the help of the boyfriend that then became the fiancé… I ventured out as Woven Bone Photography. I loved the way this name felt. It was darker and more artistic sounding. Though this name has no great story, I always wished it did. So here is my attempt. Woven Bone means a new beginning. by weaving in new friends, by creating new family, and by growing stronger bones I have truly fallen in love with what I do. capturing everyday families in their true nature… Love. Oh, And that boyfriend that became a fiancé and now the best husband/father ever, knows me better than I ever could, because he showed me my true passion. Love through a lens.
