Triad Family Photographer

Capturing lifelong 


Your life is one big series of moments. From admiring your baby bump to your child’s first steps.  There is no question these moments are some of the most important chapters in your life, and I am committed to making sure that we capture those for you!  As a wife and mother myself, I know exactly what it takes to capture those timeless memories that will last forever.


If you’re a mom with young kids, you know how precious every moment can be. Whether you’re worried about how fast your kids are growing up, or just want a way to remember this sweet stage of  life in your family’s history, I can help.

I provide family photography sessions that will capture memories for your family to treasure forever. I focus on the personality of your family and let you be yourself, so your pictures will represent who you really are as a family.


As a mother myself, I know how amazing it is to experience the miracle of pregnancy. The fact that you’re bringing another life into this world, and every moment leading up to that moment is something to be celebrated!  We want to capture you at this incredible time in your life, with all of its joys, surprises, and miracles.

It’s a beautiful time. Let me help you remember it forever.

Lifestyle Newborn

This ultra-cozy photo session happens right in the comfort of your own home during baby’s first three weeks of life. We’ll focus on both your bundle of joy and your entire family!  No formal posing here, just natural, lifestyle photos capturing those sweet moments as a family with your new baby! 


Senior year is a huge milestone. You’ve worked super hard to get to where you are, and now you’re on the verge of starting your next big adventure!

You want senior photos that capture all of your awesomeness and enthusiasm—photos that show off who YOU are as a person and make this moment feel special.

I’ll help you do just that.


Couples photo sessions are a great way to capture those special moments between you and the one you love. Whether you’re celebrating an anniversary, planning for the big day, or just want to document your love story, couple photo sessions can be a fun and exciting way to celebrate your relationship!

What they are saying...

The photos are absolutely beautiful!

Nicky was wonderful to work with, very kind, and as a mother herself, really knew how to interact with my 5-year-old and get many smiles out of him:) We are extremely pleased with the quality of her work. The photos are absolutely beautiful! We highly recommend Nicky and definitely plan on contacting her again for our next session.

Need Help?


feel free to take a look through our FAQs below. if you still have any questions, feel free to reach out to me directly!

We serve the Triad area of North Carolina (Kernersville, Winston Salem, Greensboro, High Point) and surrounding areas.  However, we do love to travel as well!  Contact us for travel rates outside of this area.

Absolutely! We love fur babies; they are family too! However, some venues do not allow animals, so make sure we are aware that you want to include your pets, and we can plan ahead.

You will receive your Private Online Gallery within 2 weeks of your session

Unfortunately, we cannot control Mother Nature, but I am always watching the forecast, and if it is looking like bad weather, we can reschedule for another date.

Super Easy, you can order them straight from your Private Online Gallery!

Just reach out to me and we can discuss an open date on the calendar that will work out for both of us. That date will then be reserved for you once we receive your signed agreement and retainer
payment. Please keep in mind that dates are booked on a first come, first serve basis.

Yes, we do require that all clients sign a contract. This is not only to protect us, but also you the client. If you are under the age of 18, then a parent or legal guardian will be required to sign the contract.

No worries at all! I have young children of my own, and I know how it can it be! I always think it’s a great idea to talk to your kids and let them know exactly
what is going to go on the day of the shoot, this way they aren’t caught off guard when we start the session, and they know what to expect. I always start off our session getting to know the kids and trying to get them comfortable. Keep in mind with kids, not every moment of your session may play out the way it was planned, and that’s ok! We will get some great photos of your family either way, either candid or posed, and I know you will cherish these memories of your kiddos!

Of course you can!  You are able to download all of the edited images delivered in your online gallery. (Mini Sessions excluded)

Thank you!
