Nick Allen points his camera at a 4-year-old boy and quickly realizes he doesn’t have to wait long to get the perfect shot. The boy, a liver transplant patient who was nervous about what people would think about the scar across his belly, had his shirt off and was laughing hysterically. He also had a sparkle in his eye that could light up a room.
Even if for a brief moment, the young boy forgot all about the scar and his tough journey.
“We ended up getting this amazing photo. And when we shared it on Facebook, he got so much encouragement that people started sharing photos of their own scars,” Nick said. “That one photo shared his story and connected him to so many people. He didn’t feel like he was alone anymore.”
That passionate attitude is what separates Nick and his company, Nick Allen Photography, from the legions of amazing photographers in and around Denton County. While he specializes in senior, family, and children’s portraits, Nick has prided himself on dabbling in a little bit of everything — especially if there’s a story to tell. His work has been characterized as dramatic, high-end artwork that captures people’s attention and emotions.
And being in Flower Mound will only enhance those opportunities. Nick has been a photographer for 18 years now and spent the last 12 years building his brand in Wyoming. While living in Wyoming was fantastic, he could only grow so much living in a town of 7,000 people. On May 31, he and his family moved to Texas and haven’t looked back since.
“We have been doing everything we can to meet people and become a part of this community,” Nick said. “Over time, I’ve managed to create a unique style, and I think that helps considering I’m in an area that has plenty of great photographers. When I get to shoot different types of photography, that’s what really inspires me.”
Nick truly loves getting to know his clients and creating masterpieces that they can enjoy for generations to come. But no amount of words can do his photography justice. We have included several of his photos in this piece. If you’d like to see more, please visit www.naphoto307.com.
“Everyone has a story,” Nick said. “I enjoy capturing their expressions and emotions and sharing them with the world.”
