PHOTOGRAPHS THAT DO MORE THAN SERVE AS PROOF THAT YOU EXISTED
I do love to capture portraiture that is rooted in a love of family, art, fashion sensibility, and a genuine interest in my subjects. I love to work with other creative people, and families who want fully customized, artful images.
Based on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia and I travel world wide!
I’m also an educator. I enjoy sharing the way I see beauty with other photographers.
One of my greatest joys is helping others find the confidence they need to create meaningful, authentic artwork for both themselves and their clients.
This is why you are here.

The photographs are timeless and are a family treasure my children will love when they are grown up. they have traveled the world to my family in South Africa as my family heirloom! I will treasure them forever!!

"As soon as I met Nikki I instantly felt like I had know her for years. She was relaxed and just goes with the flow and she was fantastic with my toddler who turn out doesn't like being in front of the camera. We did a maternity, fresh 48 and newborn shoot. All of the images were amazing but I would have to say the rawness of the fresh 48 and in home lifestyle sessions were my favorite. I was also so shocked when I received my maternity photos as I felt very nervous when we were shooting them, I actually said to my husband I cannot believe how amazing these are, I look so good."All out friends and family love the photographs and are always showing them off. They are a priceless memory and I cannot thank Nikki enough."
