If I am being honest, my personality is quirky, fun, extremely organized, introverted, and slightly awkward. I love comedy movies, fluffy puppies, Starbucks, sunshine, the Tennessee mountains, and hard rock music.
I am a mother to one handsome boy, a wife to a woodworking obsession husband that has 20 hobbies, and a dog-mama to three rowdy puppers. Since I was a little girl I loved stealing my parents camera, which recorded images to floppy-disk if you can remember those!
I want to make beautiful, light-filled, warm images that will live on your walls, and not just on your hard drive. My home is filled with photographs, and as many times that we’ve poured over our albums, I find myself frequently flipping through our heirlooms. When you hire me as your photographer, you can expect lots of play, beautiful light, and smiles, often along the shore. Sessions are relaxed, stress-free, and fun!
am living my dream! Photographing couples in love and empowering women with boudoir in my dreamy farmhouse-inspired studio has been a dream of mine since I started my photography business in 2015.
I'm Nikki :)
You know that feeling when you wake up before anyone else in the house, it's dark and quiet and you greeted with the sweet smell of coffee? Ugh, that is my dream morning!
If I could have a solid two hours every morning of utter silence and peace. But typically my morning consist of an early toddler waking, dogs barking in the yard at a deer, and the TV working when I want it to. But hey, a mama can dream of quiet mornings with her coffee, right?!
If I could have a kennel of dogs, I would. Our family are huge dog people and have capped off at 3 large dogs. If we didn't travel with out dogs everywhere we go, we would probably have more dogs!
Needless to say, if you bring your pup to a session I will completely melt over them. Dogs of all ages will always be a puppy to me. I highly encourage you to bring your fluff butts with you to your session!
If I could move to the Tennessee mountains, I would in a heartbeat! Something about the southern charm, mountain air, and hospitality just speaks to my soul. We try to travel to Tennessee at least once a year.
We are trying to find property to buy in the Tennessee mountains so we have a permanent spot to travel too. It is a dream of ours to retire in the mountains, and I am determined to make this dream a reality!
Nikki is literally the best. From the first email exchange i felt as if we were immediately best friends. When we met for our engagement shoot she made us feel so comfortable and at ease, as we’re both super awkward and uncomfortable in front of the camera. During the wedding she exceeded all expectations. She made sure we got every photo we wanted and more- and made sure everything went smoothly and on schedule - even our shot list of 100 different variations of family members. Nikki is so positive, sweet and thoughtful and posed us exactly right all night.
We wish we could put more than 5 stars! Nikki was incredible to work with! Not only are the pictures absolutely perfect, but the experience from start to finish was fun, easy, organized, supportive and beyond! Our photos came to us so quickly after the engagement session and wedding. In both, people marveled at how you could really see the emotion in each shot. She knew exactly how to make us feel comfortable and confident. She was able to create clear time lines that helped our planning process as well.

From the moment I contacted Nikki and throughout the entire wedding planning process and the day of the wedding, Nikki has been exceptional. Nikki not only is the best at communicating, but her work speaks for itself. It’s BEAUTIFUL. She made the process SO easy and enjoyable. All of my bridesmaids cannot stop raving about Nikki and Michael. They brought so much positive energy on our special day. I already told Nikki I’ll be saving her number for the future down the line when we have kids for a newborn session.
