Hello and Welcome!
My name is Nikki, and I am a wedding and family photographer based in the beautiful Sutherland Shire in Sydney.
I've spent the last 6 years capturing the wedding day stories of couples everywhere, and have slowly been transitioning my business to photograph families as well.
As a mother myself, I truly understand the importance of capturing these beautiful fleeting moments of motherhood while the years start flying by. Including but not limited to those first baby smiles in the first few weeks of the newborn bubble, to those blissful afternoons of your children chasing one another in a grassy field, to capturing your bigger babies for a family photo when they're finally in town with their own families.
Every stage and age is so important. I want to capture connection, love and preserve memories of this moment in time for you.
If this sounds like the type of session that you would like too, then head over to contact page and let's chat.

Family sessions cost $475.00 due on, or prior to your session date via transfer or by cash.
This amount includes: 45-60 minute lifestyle photoshoot - outdoors or in-home.
ALL images from the session are provided (usually around 60+ photos).
Photos are provided via an online gallery link within 2-3 weeks of your session date.
Prints and albums are also available.
• CAN YOU HELP US WITH LOCATION IDEAS?
Yes! I know some amazing places within Sydney for your family session. I can provide some recommendations to you based on the type of photos you're after whether that may be by the beach, amongst greenery, or lake side.
• CAN YOU HELP US WITH TIMINGS?
For an outdoor session my preference is always to shoot in the hour before the sun has set. This results in beautiful soft, warm light without the harsh shadows of the midday sun. For in-home sessions I recommend around 10-11am when the light in you're home is brightest.
• CAN YOU ASSIST US WITH WARDROBE CHOICES?
Sure can! I usually recommend a gorgeous dress for the mums and daughters and a shirt and chino/jeans combination for the boys. With shoes, choose something that you're comfortable in but still dressy. If you're planning on a beach session you may go without shoes. In regards to colours, think plain neutral colours like creams, white, greys, burgundy, charcoal, navy and olive. Try to steer away from large patterns, branding logos and black.
• WHAT SHOULD WE BRING?
If your session is on location late in the afternoon, I suggest bringing some mess-free snacks for your children to keep them fed and happy for the shoot. Feel free to bring along their favourite toy if you know it will make them more comfortable and a spare changes of clothes. If you're planning a beach session, your children will most likely end up in the wet sand at some point!
For in-home sessions, you'll pretty much have everything you'll need at your fingertips anyway.
