Appleton, WI Family Photography

You deserve to have beautiful photos of your family with YOU in them.

All too often, mama is the one behind the lens taking all the photos. Then kids look back and wonder where was Mom? She does so much for her family and deserves photos with her in them too.

Family sessions are a great way to connect with your family. Snuggles, kisses, and hugs are infused in every session.

Your kids don’t have to stand there and look at me the whole time. In fact, I prefer that they look at you instead. Showing the love and connection between a family is always my goal.

We’ll get the posed “grandma shot” out of the way and then it’s time for movement & fun! Capturing real smiles is way better anyway. ⁠

Sessions take place 1-1.5 hours before sunset when the sun is low and the light is gorgeous.

Sessions take place outdoors in Appleton, Neenah, Menasha, Oshkosh or Green Bay.

"Makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera"

The Recla Family

“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 was wonderful with our kids and I love the tone of her photos. We’ll use her again in the future, for sure!”



What should I wear?

We will discuss more about clothing choices during your pre-session Zoom call. I always recommend coordinating and not matching others in your family. Everyone should have their own unique outfit.


Where are sessions held?

All family sessions are done outdoors. I will suggest a location based on what you’re looking for, but I’m open to any ideas you have as well! I use locations in the Fox Cities and Appleton, WI area.


How long does it take to receive my images?

2 weeks! Images are presented online in a beautiful slideshow set to music 2 weeks after your session. After viewing your slideshow, you’ll be able to download your images. Additional products may also be purchased from your online store.


Do you do posed photos?

We get the posed shot out of the way at the beginning and then we play! You’re kids don’t have to sit still. I love infusing tickles, hugs, running, and playtime in sessions. It’s so much more fun!


When are sessions held?

Sessions are taken 1.5-2 hours before sunset when the sun is lower in the sky. This is better for light quality and reduces harsh shadows.
