Nikki is a wonderful photographer. We were lucky enough to find her a couple of years back and she has been our family photographer ever since. For the first time this year we participated in her documentary photography. She followed us around for a few hours as we just did what we normally do as a family. No posing, no stressing out about matching outfits, no yelling "say cheese" between my teeth to my 2 little girls as we posed for that one perfect shot. I had no idea what she was capturing behind that lens throughout the day, but before the day was done my little girls were calling her "Aunt Nikki" and adopting her as a member of our family. They bawled when she left. Reveal day was wonderful - she brought over some sweets for us to enjoy and examples of all the products she has to offer so i could see where they might fit in our home. She was so patient as I looked through everything 1800 times and the girls ran around happy to see her again. We watched the slideshow and it took a lot for me not to cry. I take pictures. Thousands over the years since my girls were born. I always have my phone out ready to capture a cute moment, but the ones i'm usually in are selfies - or the once a year posed family picture where you can see me talking through my teeth while i'm gripping a wiggly child. These were different. WAY different. She caught a day in motherhood. The putting on of shoes, the pushing hair off of my daughter's beautiful face, the looks of their excitement and the happiness it gives me, the playing and the teeth brushing and the book reading and the bedtime giggles. All of it. I can't describe what a gift that was to me. Nikki has a wonderful talent for seeing life through a mother's eyes and documenting it for you. My only regret is that I haven't been doing this since my babies were born. These types of photographs are irreplaceable and I would highly recommend Nikki to take them for you!
