Dreamcatchers are one of the most fascinating objects of Native Americans. The traditional dreamcatcher was intended to protect the sleeping individual from negative dreams, while letting positive dreams through. The negative dreams would get caught up in the web, and expire when the first rays of the sun struck them. Just like how the dreamcatcher helps people see the positives, with my photos I like to give people that warm feeling of serenity. Be proud of who you are. You are all beautiful, inside and out, just like the nature and creatures this world gives us.

My name is Nicole Batey (Iagnemma), raised in Mountain Top, PA. Photography is my passion. I love the fact I can be creative and just live life happy as can be while doing what I love. I specialize in nature and wildlife photography but I also enjoy photographing my best friend and dog, Rusty. With my work I hope to make people smile and appreciate what the world has to offer; natural beauty is what I believe is the best of all. The fact that I get to look through a camera and capture the moments that no one else could, makes me grateful for having the talent that I have.
