About Niki

As a little girl, growing up in a small town, I desired to travel the world, meet new people and see new things. My upbringing taught me about hard work, appreciating everything you have, rolling with the punches, being kind to everyone and working with my hands.

It all began when I found my mothers 35mm film camera in a storage box, back in 2004. I had already studied drawing and painting, but was so excited to discover this new medium. It wasn't long after I became a young teenage entrepreneur, booking clients right away. After spending most of my life studying everything about art, working in design, corporate branding and management, I decided to take my passionate business of photography  full time. 

Thankfully I married the most kind man and we have the greatest kiddos together, Jett and June. We have accepted a new adventure and have uprooted from my roots in Oregon to the Southern California Desert in the Spring 2021.
I believe we all have a gift on this earth to give others. Building meaningful relationships with people, encouraging others to see their own beauty and while capturing and sharing their story, is mine. Life is all about navigating through this journey, seeing possibility, being vulnerable, working hard and loving each other with God's grace and mercy. Photography is my creative outlet, helping me unveil the beauty in nature and people. 

So take me where you want to go, let's build a lasting relationship and I'll be right by your side to share your story.

A note from your photographer...


mackenzie + Doug

"Niki helped us feel immediately at-ease; by the end of our session together, we were on a high, it was so fun to be with Niki for the evening and we each had all the confidence in the world after a few hours in her presence. She has a true gift for what she does. She was punctual, she was so fun, and she over delivered."



Julie + Max

“When I met Niki, I felt like I knew her for years. She’s so cool, calm, collected and fun!

 Her photos are also detail-oriented and the hues/colors were exactly what we were looking for. The fact that she mixes film with digital is also extremely unique—shows true craftsmanship. I couldn’t be more lucky to have called her my wedding photographer and future friend



emily + Leo



"The output that we got from Niki was 1000% worth the investment and we'd highly recommend her to photograph your love & loved ones."


"I never knew I could love like this. I've never worked so hard and been so proud. This sweet family of mine is my entire world. I can not wait to show these little people this lovely world and grow old with them.

Living in places without family around has taught me the importance of deep relationships that I can count on and do life with. Friends are the backbone to life"

"There is only so much room in your heart for certain things. Travel is one of them. I long to see this entire world, its places and its people while I'm here residing on this planet. Discovering new places, meeting new people, learning new things, eating new foods- it's my true passion."

All her play $$$ goes towards

"Oh boy! Food makes me so happy, how can it not? Growing up in one of the best foodie spots in the country, it has tainted my preferences on a tasty meal centered around a well designed brand. Take me out to an amazing meal, with deep conversation and a perfectly designed space and atmosphere, and you've won my heart!"
