Appleton Family Photographer

Kids grow up too fast. Savor the snuggles a little longer.

Serving families in Appleton, WI and the Fox Cities.

How It Works

1. Say Hello

Fill out my contact form and get back to you asap. If it sounds like we're a good fit, all I need is a signed agreement and 50% of your session fee to secure your spot.

2. Enjoy Your Stress Free Session

Once your session is booked (YAY), we'll chat over Zoom about all the details - date, location, what to wear and what to do with your photos after. Outdoor family sessions last about an hour and take place 1.5 hours before sunset.

3. Printed Memories - Check.

Two weeks after your session, you'll receive a slideshow of your images. After viewing your slideshow, you'll be able to download your images directly from your gallery. Purchase stunning wall art, albums, and prints directly from your online shop.

Signature Albums

Heirloom albums your kids can actually touch.

High-quality silk page albums available in your choice of suede, velvet, linen, or leather. You gotta see these beauties in person! You will fall in love.

Wall Art

Ready to hang and enjoy in your home.

Your images will look stunning printed on museum-quality canvas, fine art prints, or hanging canvas. All wall art is custom-made and delivered ready to hang.

Digital Images


Beautiful fine art prints to gift or enjoy in your own frames.

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

Never got around to printing those digital files in the past? I'm here to help!

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!

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!
