i'm a maryland based family and newborn photographer.
i'm a wife, dog mama, obsessed plant lady doing life in annapolis, md. i've been in business for just about four years and this has been an incredibly fun journey!
i believe in family, i believe in the magic of childhood, i believe in the power of a couple who chooses one another each and every day! i love laughing and having fun, and i love watching other people laughing with, loving on, and having fun with their favorite people. i think family portraits are an incredible gift to each family member, a gift that says "you're important, you matter, you belong here."
i'm addicted to iced tea, it's my drink of choice and i have quite the collection... it almost rivals my plant collection. purple toms are my favorite shoes and i always buy a pair when they're on zulily. i love stupid memes, i share them in my instagram story all the time, and i'm not sorry about it. i believe life is meant to be fun!
so here's the thing. i'm not a "everyone look at me and smile" photographer. there's nothing wrong with that vibe, it's just not mine.
but! i am a "everyone snuggle in" and "give mama your best smooch" and "dad, look at anyone but me" photographer. i'm the photographer you call when you want a sun drenched evening spent loving on your family and having fun.
i don't do super stiff, super posed. i don't do "say cheese."
"Niki's excellent communication and information before the session made our session run smoothly. She was flexible and so patient. Niki made the session really relaxed, even when our little one got fussy and needed to be changed."
