Family sessions are all about showing your authentic connection and unique dynamic. Silly faces, dorky songs, and even farts won't faze me. In fact, I encourage all the silliness that you express with your kids at home. Just relax, have fun, and let's capture the essence of your beautiful tribe.
Families both big and small
During extended family sessions, we don't just focus on the entire group together. There are endless family combinations, and I am there to capture them all.
Grandparents together, grandparents and grandkids, couples portraits for every couple, kids all together, you name it! The result is a year's worth of easy gifts!
South JErsey Family Photographer
Family sessions generally consist of images of the entire family, each parent with the children, children together, parents together, and individual shots of each children.
As a photographer I love taking fun candid “lifestyle” shots of my clients interacting with each other as well as variety of posed images. I have a GREAT resource for families on what to wear.
SOUTH JERSEY FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER
timeless • fun • relaxing
Nothing compares to the joy of family life. As the lively conversations, affection, laughter, and joy unfolds in front of my camera, I feel blessed to be a family photographer. Of course, there might be a mini meltdown, but to be honest, crying is great for the photos. This is life; the tears will come and be wiped away and replaced with that big smile you are so in love with.
Some traditional photos are taken, with everyone looking at the camera and smiling. But most are natural candids, interactions, and playful banter. Whether at your home or exploring a favorite location, we move around at a good pace to keep the little ones engaged and interested. The time will fly by, it won't be the slightest bit stressful, and everyone will say it was more fun than they imagined was possible.

I could write paragraphs about how amazing Nikki was during our family shoot and our newborn shoot for our twins! But to keep it short and sweet I would 10/10 recommend her to anyone looking for beautiful pictures of your family or sweet babies! She makes you feel so comfortable, works with always moving toddlers, and takes the time to soothe your sweet new babies to capture the best possible images! I will forever cherish and appreciate our pictures from Nikki! And will be using her again for future shoots!
Nikki was great for my extended family shoot, she put everyone at ease, including the fussy kids, and managed to get great pictures of everyone even in weather that wasn't ideal! She was really communicative and flexible and made everything very easy for us. I definitely recommend her!
If i can give Nikki more than 5 stars I would. I booked a mini photo session with her and I am extremely happy I did. Her communication is great and answered any questions i had prior to the shoot, she allowed access to her client closet, and she was super friendly, it seemed like i knew her forever. During the shoot she gave me different poses to do, but at the end she even asked if I had any ideas or if i wanted a certain pose to be done. She was very open which made it a fun shoot. This lead to BEAUTIFUL pictures, I couldnt be happier. I cant wait to order some pictures to put around the house. I will deff be booking with Nikki again!
