About Nikki

For us to connect and take really good photos together, we have to get to know each other. We must become friends.

I never know what to say about myself, but here’s a start. Born and raised in Manitowoc, surrounded by the people I love is where I feel most at home. Even as a little girl, I knew I wanted to be creative. This led me to my Bachelors of Fine Art in Photography from UW Milwaukee. After college was really when I began taking photos consistently. This was when I felt like I became a photographer. I knew immediately after the first wedding I shot  – that was it. My purpose. I wanted to tell stories thru images. I want to connect with people. I want to capture moments they don’t even see.  I’m truly in love with what I do. The art of taking people’s photos. Documentation. Story telling. I believe beauty is everywhere.

If you like what you see, let’s take photos together.

More fun facts: I’m happiest adventuring with my camera or holding Steve’s hand. Staying home, cooking food, or just doing nothing is great. Most days I wake up with the sun. I read a handful of books every year and watch lots of movies.  I’m inspired by the changing seasons. I love Lake Michigan. Picking up my camera at twenty was one of the best choices of my life.
