about me

DSC_5192PINTHISHi everyone! My name is Nikki and I am a studio light newborn photographer. Based out of Marquette, Michigan I specialize in newborns, family and children photography.

While I specialize in three things, my heart is really in newborns. Being able to document this special moment in every new parent’s life brings me such joy, whether they are first time parents or old veteran parents. Observing how each little bundle seems to mold so beautifully into a loving family is just so amazing to witness and I feel so blessed that I get to be a part of it. My studio is located in the Gossard Building downtown Ishpeming.

I live in Ishpeming with my husband Keith and my three boys Logan, Owen and Nathan. I don’t want to go all kumbaya on you, but they’re pretty much my life. My two oldest boys are 16 months apart. My youngest was just born in October! While some days are difficult, I really wouldn’t change it for the world. Logan is my social butterfly. He will strike up a conversation with anyone, while Owen is a bit more reserved. Oh Owen, let’s talk about him shall we. Don’t let that cute little grin fool you. You can be sure behind those big doe eyes, the wheels are turning and he’s trying to think of what mischief to get in to next. Nathan perfectly added a missing piece to our family that I didn’t even know was missing. While they are definitely a handful and a half, they’re mine and I wouldn’t trade the craziness for anything.

And then there’s my husband Keith. He’s pretty amazing. I really couldn’t ask for a more supportive spouse, and an amaaaaaaazing daddy to our little boys. They adore him probably more than I do sometimes. 😉

Hmmm, what do you need to know about me? I am a movie fanatic. I own a ridiculous amount of movies. I’m not big on going outside during the winter. Like, at all. I love Starbucks. Venti mochas to be exact. I shoot Canon. If I could have 15 babies I probably would. I absolutely love my clients. They’re like my own special family. I love what I do, and feel so blessed to get to share these moments with my clients. Giving birth clients their images is probably my favorite. Snuggling with the babies isn’t too bad either. Knowing that they can look back on the day their child was born is an amazing gift to give, and I’m so happy to do it.

I look forward to working with you!

Nikki
