Hi I'm Nikki! I am a NJ based Photographer.
I have been a graphic designer since the 1900's (1995 to be specific) and have always loved photography; it's surprising that it took me more than 25 years to pursue photography seriously and buy a camera!!
In my late teens and early 20s I found myself in many magazines as a hair model. During the same time, I pursued becoming a makeup artist and I became the photographer's second set of eyes while working photo shoots. In my mid and late 30s, after discovering fitness, I've pursued bodybuilding professionally in the IFBB federation and found myself in fitness magazines. All of this to say, in the last two decades, I have found myself in front of the lens and behind the scenes of photo shoots quite often.
From taking selfies and cat photos on my Konica Tomato camera in the '80s and waiting weeks for my parents to develop the film, to the instant gratification of Polaroids and iPhones of present day-- I've been there, capturing people, things and moments. The years spent in front of the lens help educate me on what angles, body positioning, and expressions create great images. I immersed myself in photography lessons learning lighting techniques, composition and the technical details of my cameras. During that period of discovery and education I absolutely fell in love with food and beverage photography. While it is my first love, it isnt my only; I love capturing so much more.
TLDR: I am a New Jersey native, wife, bonus mom, dog mom, daughter, and sister obsessed with great food, a great workout, and great images.... let's work together!
Thank you for stopping by!
