Korie Nordstrom Photography » Custom portrait photographer based in Richmond, Virginia specializing in Senior portraiture


Korie NordstromHello, I’m Korie!   Thank you so much for your interest in my art.  I was born and raised a California girl and I’ve loved photography since I was very young.  My dad bought me my first camera at age 10 when I started snapping pictures of my sweet 2 year-old-nephew.  It never occurred to me to make a career of it.  I went on to earn double bachelor degrees in English and Government at California State University Sacramento.  I remember in college strolling past the photography exhibits from other students, thinking how fun it must be, but quickly my thoughts turned back to term papers on Shakespeare and American Public Policy.  During college I did modeling part-time, so I learned a lot about what it was like to be on the other end of the camera and posing.

After meeting my husband, having our first child, and several years of working as a Real Estate Paralegal, we decided to move to Virginia for my husband’s career.  Shortly after the move our second child arrived.  I picked up a camera and that was it….I never put it down again.  I am 100% self-taught.  Photography is my passion and I believe it is a gift from the Lord.  I love meeting new people, forming friendships, capturing moments in their lives, and showing them just how beautiful they truly are.
