I was born in Toronto and have lived in Brampton my whole life. I work in a law firm in downtown Toronto as a Legal Executive Assistant and in my spare time I do photography and sell Mary Kay Skin Care and Cosmetics. Photography has always been a passion of mine and continues to be my artistic escape. I enjoy photographing everything from sports, to family and pets and landscapes. I am always up for a challenge and revel in trying new techniques and methods for capturing the best shots possible.
Below is the CJFL Fans Choice Photo of the Year along with other examples of Nicole's work. Congratulations Nicole Bruni, keep up the great work covering the CJFL and GTA Grizzlies!
