about nikki


Hi there,  Thanks so much for your interest in my work, I truly love everything about newborns and love having the opportunity to capture this fleeting moment for you to cherish forever.  As with all photographers, I have always loved taking pictures.  I became a professional photographer with the sole purpose of specializing in newborn portraiture, and it's all I do (well in order to make my newborn clients happy I also do 6 month and 1 year sessions).   My photography journey started in 2011 with 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 honing and perfecting my craft ever since and though I am primarily self taught, I've mentored with and taken newborn portrait workshops with the ABSOLUTE BEST in the business.  I am blessed to absolutely love what I do.  In addition to photography I'm also an ER nurse and have been since a year after I graduated from nursing school in 2000.  I love everything about it and am so blessed to be able to have the best of both worlds and truly do what I love.

Other info:

 I live in Eastern Connecticut with my husband, our youngest kiddo, 2 fur babes and a bird.  Our 2 "big kids" are out on their own.   My children are my absolute greatest love in life and I am so blessed to be their momma  (my hubs isn't so bad either!).

a few random tidbits about me:

I'm a self taught Nikon Canon girl. (gasp...yep I made the switch and LOVE it)

I love craigslist, etsy and shopping in general (much to my husbands dismay)

I love to travel but hate to fly

My husband and I have been together since we were 16, teenage sweethearts <3

I love animals and foster rescue dogs and often bring them home without telling my husband lol....once bringing 5 puppies home and sending him a picture of them in the car when we were already on our way home. (He says I'm lucky he loves me lol)

I wish I could knit but I don't have the patience for it. I'm all about instant gratification

I love music and can't clean my house without it blasting, it helps me focus.

I LOVE snuggling newborns....duh

My whole life, all of my accomplishments and everything I aspire to be is dedicated to my grandfather who was the greatest man I have ever known, without him I wouldn't be half the person I am today. always in my heart, never far from my thoughts <3

Have a question for me?  Ask away.....
