Gender Reveal | Baby Anderson | Restaurant Tyler | Starkville, MS

family

Dear Baby Anderson,

When your grandmother reached out to me and asked if was available to photograph the revealing of whether you were a little girl, or a little boy, I had to say yes. They themed your gender reveal was “pink or blue, we love you!” and oh sweet baby, that is the truth. Your big sister and I went into the bathroom and she read what the nurses wrote, jumped up and down and squealed with delight. As she walked out to proclaim the news everyone cheered, and tears of joy streamed down her face. You are loved, little one, and I cannot wait to meet you,

Until then,

Nikki

Dear Jeff, Macki, Mackinzie, Adelyn and Odessa,

This is now the third time that I’ve been able to photograph your family in the beautiful place you call home, and for me, I think it was my favorite. I loved getting to see you sit on the branch of your favorite tree, climbing the hay bales that serve as your play ground, and running through the grass that tickles your toes.

Thank you for inviting me, for letting me observe you in your element.

Blessings to you,
Nikki

Dear Nikki + Brantley,

As soon as the correspondence about your wedding began, I could not have been more excited. The day could not have been more perfect; the sky blue and bold, the air clear and cool, the sun warming and soothing on the skin. The sun started to dip and the light turned to gold as your promised your lives to one another in the midst of your family and friends. It was a sight to see, and a delight to be a part of. I cannot thank you enough for trusting me to capture your day.

I hope you are loving life together as husband and wife.

Cheers to you,

Nikki

September: the month that symbolizes an end and beginning in one fell swoop. The temperature doesn’t necessarily drop, but the wind picks up, the sun starts to sink a bit lower a little earlier, and the promise of change is prevalent.  (more…)

Starkville, MS | Newborn Session | Baby Hank

family

Sweet Baby Hank,

You are darling. You truly are. I still cannot believe how calm and relaxed you were throughout your photo shoot. Undoubtedly, it is due to the tender love you receive from your sweet mama, the steady care of your dad, and the not always gentle but loving attention you receive from your big brother. 🙂 Mark, Laura, Holt, and Hank, thank you so much for allowing me into your home! I so enjoyed our time together and wish you all the best.

Cheers,

Nikki

Dear Hannah + Jacob,

Thank you so much for choosing me to photograph your engagement session. My time with you, though brief and wrapped in heat, was so lovely. You two are splendid together. Your love and adoration for one another flows from you, with each hug, tender kiss, and touch of the hand. I love how you choose fields of cotton for your location; how it’s a part of who you are as a couple. I wish you all the best, and hope your last few months before you become husband and wife are swift and sweet.

Cheers to you both,

Nikki
