Play-based sessions for snuggly families wanting candid moments documented.

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.

I believe your photo experience should be so much more than meeting at a park and taking pictures.

Most photographers will email you, not meet you ahead of time, take your photos, and send you digital photos in an online gallery. If that’s what you’re looking for, cool! That used to be me, but now I do it a little differently.

Families I work with want to get to know each other before a session and need help getting prints and albums off their to-do list. They know life gets busy and even with the best intentions, sometimes those beautiful photos get stuck on the flash drive. (No judging. I talk from personal experience.) 

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 even Dad will enjoy, contact me

What it's like to work with 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!

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.
