Hello and welcome!!

family photographer houston - olive shoot

My name is Nikki Gould, and I am the owner and photographer of Olive Shoot Photography. I had the distinct honor and privilege of spending several days photographing the amazing students (your children) of River Oaks Baptist School! Your children were all so kind, silly, fun, and all things that children should be, and I was so happy to have had the opportunity to meet and photograph each of them!

Just a little about the person behind the lens...

I am a wife and mother of two adorable little ones of my own. I am also a photographer who specializes in Documentary Family Photography. My sessions consist of families living out their every day lives while I hang around and photograph all of the interactions that take place while I'm there. It's a newer version of family photography, and allows those who bring me along to have photographs of actual real life family memories without the pressure of getting into the perfect pose, wearing the perfect outfit, or putting on the perfect smile. I rely on your interactions to tell the story, and position myself to make the most beautiful photos of your experiences together. Family is one of my favorite things to celebrate, and I so love providing my families with a way that does just that. I would love to be invited to do that for you as well, so be sure to reach out to me to have your family memories on display in timeless photographs.

What I Have For You...

At this point, you have likely already seen the photos that were presented to you at the Gala, and I'm excited to let you know that there's more! I was invited to photograph each of your children in a way that truly showed their personalities while focusing on taking it a step beyond simply what your children look like, and providing you and your children with photos of what their childhood FEELS like at this stage in their lives.

I would love to have the opportunity to feature your children's photos on my website and marketing. If you would be open to me doing so, I would so appreciate you following the link below to fill out my model release contract. It only takes about 30 seconds to fill out, and you would absolutely make my day by doing so! Here's the link for the release:

Model Release

I have compiled a collection of my favorite photos from my time with your children and put them in the online gallery linked below. These photos have been made available for you to view, as well as the option to purchase in print or digital form. I offer a custom matted print in many sizing options with lovely white eco-friendly mats, as well as a beautiful heirloom quality canvases. You also have the option to purchase the high resolution digital file, if you so choose. I hope you enjoy what I've put together for you all and that your children's school day memories were perfectly preserved in these photographs!

THE GALLERY WILL EXPIRE ON MAY 18TH, 2018 and will only be reopened upon request sent directly to me at nikki@oliveshoot.com.

You will find the galleries are divided by grade, and are, to the best of my ability, displayed in alphabetical order. Again, I am so thankful and was incredibly blessed by this opportunity of being able to hang around all of your wonderful children, and I hope to get to see some of you again some day soon!

Have a wonderful and blessed day,
Nikki Gould
