My hope is that this blog inspires you to document what matters most to you. I'm a photographer and also a mom to 3. My photography is inspired by the fleeting moments I've found in motherhood.

If you have little ones, you’ve probably felt dread at the thought of orchestrating a family session with kids. But here’s a little secret: it doesn’t have to be stressful. In fact, it can be a beautiful and heartwarming experience. Take a deep breath, and check out what one mom had to say about her experience with her photoshoot. 

I was honestly dreading our family photos – if you have little kids, you know the struggle is real – but I really wanted to document us at this stage of life. 

I am SO glad I booked with Nikki. Her work is stunning and speaks for itself, but the way she interacted with my family was amazing. She was so kind, patient and allowed my kids to warm up at their own pace. 

She directed us, while also allowing the authentic moments to happen. It was such a fun experience!

 Our photos were stunning and they’re already hung up all over our home! I highly recommend Nikki to anyone looking for gorgeous photos and a stress-free experience!

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed when you think about wrangling the kids to get the perfect shot. It’s okay to let them be kids and to capture all the special moments that will pop up as we spend time together. I find that one of the best ways to get the most out of kids is to allow them to be their fun, playful selves. As they warm up, we can work toward some of those posed photos, but rest assured that you will have so many incredible images to choose from! 

Just like this mom did, I encourage all of my clients to make the most of their sessions by actually printing the photos. They were made to be seen, and you will want to enjoy them every day. Whether you frame them for the wall, print a canvas, or create a photo book, make sure that you give your photos life by printing them! 

When you are ready to let go of the dread and stress of a family session with kids, reach out! I’d love to help you capture this time in your lives and give you some images you will love to show off!
