I know that your time is valuable, I know that making memories with your children trumps shopping for wardrobe and planning the details of your photoshoot. I know that, because I’m a mama too!

The stress of portraits is REAL and that's why I have created a portrait experience serving you and every detail of capturing the beautiful connection of your family. Starting with wardrobe styling and ending with album design, I plan ALL the details!

I tend to every detail so you can spend time where it matters most.

My Sessions are Unique


"Big magic in the mundane.
The big picture in a small frame.
Everything is sacred when you take time to notice.
Big love happens in the small moments."

petite sessions

capturing your magically mundane


We’ve all been there. We’ve all stressed over what to wear and waited till the last minute only to have the wrong size. The process of portraits is stressful and my mission is to care for every detail from start to finish. Starting with your curated wardrobe guide. During our call I will gather sizes, take inventory of items you already have and then curate a wardrobe for you to easily shop! Don't worry mama's who choose my simplicity collection, I have some favorite pices saved to share!

albums & pRINTS





Every image deserves to be printed even if it's not hung on a wall. Albums are a special place for sweet moments to be kept, bound together and to be passed down for generations.

Even the small details can be time consuming and overwhelming. My custom announcements and holiday cards are completely custom designed to your favorite images. And my prints will surely be the gift that anyone will love.

Studio rental

Want in home lifestyle images but the thought of tidying up your home is just one more thing you dont want to deal with? Or maybe its too chilly outsdie and you would rather stay warm and cozy with your littles... Then the studio is the perfect location fr our next shoot.

The studio is a clean large space with a seperate room for changing. There is beautiful neutral furniture with tons of gorgeous natural light, this studio is my home away from home, I love it there.

hair & makeup

I believe every mommy should feel beautiful and pampered. It's my job to tend to the tiniest of details.

The amazing Simply by Gorgeous Erin team is a group of professional hair and makeup artists who maintain a natural yet polished look that is reflective of your style. Ensuring you feel beautiful for your stress free portrait session.

Let's connect

"Nikki has been an absolute pivotal part of establishing my brand and business. Besides her talent and professionalism she makes you feel comfortable from the second you meet. Not only does Nikki seamlessly mix her talent for storytelling and imagery with photography & video she also helps with styling our shoots behind the scenes. I can say without a doubt our online shop and brand would not be what it is without her. Hiring her was the best thing we did in 2022. We will continue to work with Nikki- her expertise in invaluable."  - Christina


"Nikki is amazing! It was such a joy to work with her. She is not only the best at what she does, but she is so kind and makes the entire experience fun. I have never had professional branding session before, and I don’t stand in front of the camera too often, but she made me feel so comfortable and had tons of great poses ideas. She is patient and has a great eye for angles, lighting and flattering. She also helped me choose my outfits and props for the session, for which I am super thankful for :) The pictures she took came out AMAZING! I am thrilled with the results! Thank you Nikki! You totally rock!" - SYLWIA 


"Nikki went above and beyond just taking incredible branding photographs. She nurtured our professional relationship from the very start by having a wonderful in person consultation prior to the session to assess my needs for the branding images on my website and social media. I shared my Vision with her and she absolutely delivered! Nikki helped select on brand clothing pieces and accessories and asked all the right questions to make sure I felt confident and comfortable. All her hard work to prep me for the photo session shines in the final images. I’m so great full we connected and I am thrilled to be using the photographs on my website and social media!" - Shannon


"I'm blown away at the quality of the photos and that you were able to get some sweet memories of the kids despite everyone's chaotic behavior during our session. I'm forever grateful to have these photos and look forward to proudly displaying them in our home. These are such a gift and I greatly appreciate your talent!" - Alex


"I'm used to prepping clients to get in front of the camera instead of being in front of it myself. I don't love having my photos taken but Nikki changed my mind. She made it effortless and very comfortable. She's insanely organized and warm. The finished product was the most beautiful branding photos I've ever had done. She nailed the story I was trying to tell and captured the real me." - Erin


“Working with Nikki for my branding headshots was everything I had hoped for. As a woman, I was nervous to be in front of the camera but I trusted her to photograph me not only from the most flattering angles, but also in a way that captures the essence of who I am and what my brand represents. I could not have been more delighted and please when I received my gallery. She is a master!” - Alicia


"My husband and I highly recommended Nikki for the most authentic and special moments captured! The petite session was perfect for our little family with two under two. Despite my toddler having some big feelings during the session, every single photo in our gallery came back amazing! Nikki did everything in her power to make our little guy laugh and bring out a silly side of him for the best photos. When we look back at these pictures we really see our special family connection come through. Thank you so much Nikki and we can’t wait to do it again!"- Katie
