About Me


My name is Nicky Hemingson, and I am the proud owner and operator of Nicky Rae Photography, a dream come true that was a long time in the making. Thanks for visiting my site, I hope you enjoy looking through my galleries.
I am happily married and have two gorgeous and amazing children, Kenedy who is and old soul in a young girls body and Pacen who is a fearless cowboy who loves to make people smile . I live with my Family near LaGlace, Alberta about 40kms Grande Prairie. We are very fortunate to have a beautiful location that is absolutely peaceful and a perfect setting for photos. My husband and I are avid Horsepeople, and are kids are looking to be that way too. I enjoy almost every aspect of the horse industry in some way or another. I also play a little with my Mini-Aussie and my Heeler cross in Canine Agility and Stock Dog Work.
I started my photography journey around the age of 12, when I was lucky enough to have access to a great Canon Camera (which I still have today :) I worked in a Portrait Studio for a while, and gained experience with posing, etc. I dabbled in photography off and on until I met up with a wonderful lady who invited me to hire on with her and work as a professional photographer, again. While there, I learnt alot about studio lighting and found I had yet another passion, photographing newborn babies. Babies are such miracles, and they still amaze me....especially when I dont have to change the diapers....lol.
Anyway to make a long story short, I always found myself gravitating back to one of two things.....photography, or horses. So I thought how lucky could I be and photograph horses for a living.....well, here I am.
I am also proud to say that my photos have been seen in such publications as The Western Horse Review and Horses All, and I am also a recipient of Merit Points from PCA International, Inc. where I have been awarded a Certificate of Completion for successfuly completing all required coursework and training for PCA Portrait Photography. I have attended various lighting and photography courses, and continue to expand my education so that I can provide my clients with the most up to date techniques and equipment. In February of 2011, I very proudly recieved my Membership to the Wedding & Portrait Photographers International. Summer of 2016 will see my images promoted during The Calgary Stompede, including an image titled "A Soft Hand" that was runner up in the Western Lifestyle category.

To me there is nothing better than those special moments in life....afterall....

Miracles come in moments, Im here to help you capture them all.

Looking forward to documenting a part of your journey
Nicky Hemingson.
