Custom Family Artwork For Your Home.

Appleton Family Photographer

Appleton, WI and the Fox Cities

Hi there! I'm Nikki, a newborn & family photographer.

One BIG question I'm going to answer for you ASAP is how I am different than the bajillion other family photographers out there.

Most photographers will email only, not meet you ahead of time, send digital photos in an online gallery, and never contact you again.


You deserve a way better experience than that.

Families I work with want to get to know each other before a session.

They want help with outfit selection and deciding what to do with their photos after their session. 

They want to look at their walls every morning and remember just how tiny their kids used to be.

They want their kids to be able to look back on the memories of their family in an album. 

If you’re looking to get to know your photographer ahead of time and have a play-based session with lots of snuggles, contact me

This was my first experience with Nikki, and she took care of my family as if we had known her for years. 

Luella K.

She knew how to work with our two toddlers during the photo session. The photos we ordered came quickly and were so beautiful. Definitely recommend working with her!

Emma K.

She provided us with some great tips, suggestions and a preparation guide upon setting up an appointment for our family session. She made our session so fun as she was great with kids and so easy going. 

Aimee R.

Nikki does a great job making you feel comfortable in front of the camera. No forced, awkward posing and lots of natural candid smiles, which I love.

She responded fast to questions, helped with outfit selections, was amazing with my kids, and did an awesome job editing. I can’t believe what she caught for pictures in just a short amount of time!
