Nikki started her photography business 4 years ago and has not looked back. In such a short amount of time, Nikki has become one of the leading maternity and newborn photographers in California. Her passion lies with photographing Maternity, newborns and babies up to one year. She has found that milestone sessions are an untapped market, usually falling under an “add-on” type session. By adding unique elements, and creativity, a milestone session can appeal to the client looking for a full service experience.

What does balance mean to you
If I can lay down at night with happiness in my heart, I have found balance for that day. I am my happiest when I have spent quality time with each of my family members, worked at my business, and found enough time for myself. Perfect balance is impossible, but the hope for balance is always achievable.

What is the secret to success?
Unplug from social media completely for a short while. It’s the secret to individuality and contentment within your creative self. I truly believe one cannot grow while viewing the work of another.
Where do you want to be in 5 years?
In a new home where I have a large studio space on my property. I can decorate, tear down walls, add in windows without getting approval from anyone…except my husband.
Perfectionist. It’s why I grew so fast but it’s also why I am so hard on myself.
