I’m Nicole Wells (AKA Kat Fair Wells) and I am a photographic portrait artist.


I exhibited my series 'My Daughter, My Muse' from the 6th-14th of May in Paddington Town Hall in Sydney, as part of the 2017 Head On Photo Festival. Two of my images were used to advertise Head On throughout Sydney, with flags and banners in which is one of Australia's largest photographic festivals!


I like to create stylised individual portraits that reflects aspects of you or your child’s personality, whether that be that solemn, thinking side or that cheeky, energetic one. My speciality is to help create a look for your child, and stage a scene, I can and do research historical aspects and clothing details for my shoots. I especially love working with children, as I have so much experience with my own!

I have a current Working With Children’s check and you can relax comfortably on my couch, whilst your child is being photographed in my home studio.
