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. From wardrobe styling to hair & makeup, I plan ALL the details!
I will work with you in an elevated partnership focused on defining the aesthetic story of your brand with head-turning visuals that communicate your values and clarify your message to your dream clients. I help you with every part of the shoot, from wardrobe down to posing.
We will collectively decide which hour or hours is best. it could be prior to or during the event. I would focus solely on showcasing how you work, as well as create a curated collection of images featuring your finished work!
I totally get it, as a mama myself and well a human, we all have off days. I also encoruage parents to take a step back if possible and let me get on your little ones level and work my tricks. Most of the time, my silly noises and questions work.
GOLDEN HOUR, there is a reason it is called golden hour. 1 hour before sunset is my absolute favorite, but I also love a pretty sunrise session. For studio sessions I shoot between 9 - 2!
We will reschedule! I leave plenty of time in my schedule for rain dates. Unless you dig dancing in the rain, then I'm good with that too!
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.
Yes, I have some favorite spots that I will happily recommend to clients. I also LOVE shooting at clients homes or on their properties. There is something cozy about an at home session!
Yes! Please ask me during our initial call and I will happily walk you through my different options! Don't stress, I'm here to help!

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
