"Nikki is a dynamic and professional photographer who knows how to direct a shoot and make it fun! I hired Nikki to take some photos of me as I needed some fresh content for my social media pages and website. I'm a colour stylist with an edgy vibe and Nikki helped me to capture the exact look I was after. We had the best day and I was delighted when there were too many great shots to choose from. I would absolutely recommend Nikki for anyone wanting some amazing photos for business or pleasure."

What they're saying...

“I felt comfortable, relaxed and supported at all times. We shot in several totally different spaces in the studio, which created a really varied suite of shots with a different story for each location. The shots far exceeded my expectations... I almost can't believe that's really me channeling such energy. It's increased my confidence and given me an amazing set of images to use for personal branding in my professional career as a creative director, to share with friends and to use on my social channels. I'd recommend working with Nikki because obviously she's really talented, but she's also very down to earth.
