Winter 2021 Newborn Model Call
Appleton, WI & the Fox Cities

You know how important it is to document the first days of little one’s life, but it can be difficult to get out of the house.

Believe me, I’ve been there! Going anywhere those first couple weeks is tough, especially if you have other kids in tow. 

On top of that, new mama life is such a blur.

Soaking in your baby’s tiny fingers, squishy cheeks, and beautiful face is all you should be worried about!

Newborn sessions document the love between a family and their newest addition in the warmth and comfort of their home.

This means you don’t have to go anywhere to have beautiful, quality photos of your newest love that will last a lifetime.

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.

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!

Hi there! I'm Nikki. In-home newborn sessions are my jam.

Get to know me!

I’m so glad you’ve landed on my site! I’m Nikki, a newborn and family photographer in Appleton, WI.

I’m a mama to two little girls who are the inspiration for my photography. Watching my babies grow up and change made me realize how fleeting time is with them. I want to be able to remember all the little things about them that bring me so much joy.

In my free time, I love to get my butt kicked by a Pelton instructor, eat my weight in Twizzlers, and read young adult romance novels.

My business is a little different than other family photographers in Appleton. An experience with me is so much more than meeting one time and taking photos.

I take the time to get to know each family ahead of time and make sure you are fully prepped for a great experience before, during, and after your session!
