If you're looking for a photographer to capture your laid back family, you've come to the right place!
I'm Niki, a family + lifestyle newborn photographer based in Baltimore, MD. A lifelong passion for working with kids and the humans they call parents - first as a nanny, then as a special educator - was SET ON FIRE when I became a mama myself.
Childhood is truly magical, and the journey of parenthood transforms us adults like nothing else in life can. It's messy and imperfect and straight up HARD some days, but it's also the most inspiring, most rewarding, most joyful.
When I pick up my camera, my goal is to tell your family's story right now. Baby bumps and sweet anticipation, the whirlwind of welcoming a new soul, the bittersweet feelings that creep in with first birthdays, and just because - I'm here for it all! Your portraits become a part of your family's legacy, a gift that reminds each member, "you're important, you matter, you belong here."
"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."
Go behind the scenes of a family session!
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, whisper something to make mom laugh" 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."
I do real. I do connection. I do fun.
