It's is a whirlwind of hard work, busyness, craziness, and utter amazement. But let's face it—it can also be downright exhausting. Seeing highlight reels on social media doesn't help either.
And if you are, kudos to you, but that's just not the norm. Most days, it's too many snacks, a little too much screen time, and staying in pajamas until noon and that's OKAY!
That's why I find family photography so extraordinary. It's a moment when you get to step out of those comfy lounge pants and claw clip, put on real clothes and feel beautiful, because you are!
It's the joy of playing with your kids in the gorgeous landscapes of Wisconsin, realizing just how lucky you are to raise these incredible tiny humans — so lucky you could pinch yourself.
And the best part comes afterward—you get to hang those stunning memories on your wall and look at them on those tough days.
You remember that, hey, you might not be perfect, and your kids might not be either, but you're a fantastic mom doing the absolute best you can.
THAT's the magic of family photography—it's meaningful, it's heartwarming, and it's a reminder of the incredible love you share with your family.

obsessed with crafting,
Born and raised in Menasha, WI, my passion lies in working with children and families. I'm a mom of two beautiful girls, Daphne and Willa. In my free time, I enjoy crafting whether that's sewing children's clothes, weaving, or my new obsession - gem painting. I'm a dog mom to a beautiful cavapoo puppy, Maisy, and have been married to my babe of a husband since 2011.
Photography is my creative outlet and the key to preserving memories that often slip away in the foggy haze of mom life. I deeply understand the significance of photos and videos, having experienced the loss of my mom to cancer in 2012. I'd describe myself as a laid-back, go-with-the-flow type of person. I think making connections is super important, so I can't WAIT to connect with you!
I thought that trying to get nice family photos of my family of 7 would be a complete failure, but decided to reach out to Nikki, who was so kind, experienced, and professional. She reassured me we would make it work with a very natural, easy-going approach where we could work with the kids in a playful way in their natural environment.
Nikki captured truly stunning photos of our family interacting, gorgeous portraits of the kids, and I was absolutely thrilled with the outcomes.
You can feel her passion for her work not only in the quality of the pictures but how she connects with you and truly enjoys capturing the most important moments. I highly recommend Nikki for any photos you may want—she is amazing!
Nikki's calming presence made the entire process enjoyable and stress-free. The communication is outstanding along with her availability to answer questions. The products we ordered were of the highest quality and will be cherished for a lifetime.
