Hi friends,  Thanks so much for being here! I truly love everything about newborns and am blessed to have the opportunity to capture this fleeting moment for you to cherish forever.   I became a professional photographer with the sole purpose of specializing in newborn portraiture. My photography journey started in 2011 doing newborn sessions for friends and lots of free craigslist sessions (yikes). I moved into my first studio space, shared with another photographer, in mid 2012....and the rest is history. I've been perfecting my craft ever since and though I am primarily self taught, I've mentored with the ABSOLUTE BEST in the business.  In addition to photography I'm also an ER nurse, so you can be absolutely sure your little love is in the very best hands. I love everything about ER nursing & newborn photography and am so blessed to be able to have the best of both worlds and truly do what I love. (who can say that about 2 jobs!?!)

all about nikki

I swear I couldn't love you more than I do right now, and yet I know I will tomorrow.

my whole entire heart


"Nikki is truly gifted and I would highly recommend her to anyone searching for a newborn photographer! As soon as we walked into her studio she was prepared to start our shoot & made us all feel comfortable. I still can't believe how incredible she was with our daughter. I swear she's a baby whisperer! Thank you Nikki for capturing such precious moments. I'm in love with all of our photos!"

"We had such a wonderful experience with Nikki and her staff! She was so patient with our little girl and made sure each picture came out perfect! I will forever treasure these photos!"

"I can truly say that I have never had such a wonderful experience as I did yesterday at our photoshoot. Having a newborn can be stressful, but having a 2.5 year old toddler and a newborn is insane! Nikki was so extremely professional and had such a calming affect on both of my children. The sneak peek shots are to die for and my husband and I couldn't be happier. So well worth it. I would recommend anyone, near or far to use Nikki For their newborn shots. We traveled an hour to see her and it was worth every penny spent!"

"We truly had the best experience working with Nikki and her staff. From the moment we walked in she was very nurturing, attentive and just made me feel at ease with the entire process. Nikki is very detail orientated and captures beauty in every photo. Having a newborn is such a beautiful experience, as we all know time flies by in the blink of an eye, but being able to look back at these beautiful photos mean everything to me and they will always be cherished.. Thank you Nikki!"

"We had an amazing experience with Nikki! From scheduling around an early delivery and NICU stay to a very relaxed and comfortable session with our twins- we were very impressed by every aspect of our experience and had such a difficult time picking our favorite shots!"

"The investment in the photos was well worth the final product along with the professionalism and patience we experienced during our time in the studio. Nikki is a natural in her art as a photographer and exudes her love for babies in the way she soothes and handles them during the photo shoot . Thank you Nikki for a life time of memories."

"You are truly one of a kind and unique in your talents and what you do! We are more than happy with the outcome of the photoshoot and the images you have captured of our family and newborn baby girl. Although Sophia was a handful, your commitment and patience gave us memories that will last a lifetime! Thank you!"

"...this picture means so much To me. My son was 8 weeks early, he had to spend the first 4 weeks in the nicu where me and his dad had to look at our baby with c-pap and heart monitor's, and the rest of what helps save your baby's life..having a premature baby is scary and you don't get the chance to enjoy your new baby, you're to busy with all that is happening. Nikki I want you to know that before I came to your studio, I would look at my baby and only remember the trauma of the nicu. Thank you for showing me what my son really looks like without all those wires attached to him. You not only are a great photographer, most importantly you are a wonderful, gentle, kind, sweet, giving person I have ever met! Thank you for giving me the greatest gift ........the gift that now I can look a beautiful newborn picture of my son and only see the beauty of more trauma from the nicu.
You truly are a Angel."


"Your newborn is only a newborn once and there is no other newborn photographer who can capture lasting memories like Nikki can. She is AMAZING with your precious bundle of joy and the attention to detail in her photos is second to none!! By far the best investment we've made!"
