BLACKSTONE â€“ They say a photograph is worth a thousands words. For Nicole Lopez, a professional photographer from Blackstone, a photograph is also worth a thousand memories.
â€śA photograph truly is so much more than a piece of paper. It is a memory,â€ť says Lopez, a 1996 graduate of Blackstone-Millville Regional High School and mother of two, who started her photography business, Nicole Lopez Photography, two years ago.
â€śWith a photograph, that memory is never forgotten,â€ť she says. â€śIt is remembered over and over, and passed on for generations to come.â€ť
Not only has Lopez been making memories for local families with her portraits and one-of-a-kind experience photo sessions, for the past year sheâ€™s been donating her time and skills to the Gold Hope Project, a team of over 500 photographers worldwide that raise awareness of childhood cancers by offering their services free to fighters and survivors and putting faces to facts.
