The studio 

Where all the magic happens 

 

 

My photography studio is in the comfort of my home.  We converted our garage into the studio during Lockdown 2020 – a great project for us but also it was so important to me to provide a warm, cosy place for my families.

Inside, there is a comfy place to sit during the session or for when you come back for your gallery viewing.  I have a drinks and snacks station which you’re welcome to help yourself to during the sessions with me.

My wall art samples are proudly on display so you can see just how beautiful your images could look and I have magazines for reading through and music playing.  I like to think of my studio as a home from home.

At the other end of the room is where I take my photos.  I use the beanbag and my Perfect Posie for posing baby and then the roll out backdrop system for my props and family shots.  As you can see by the pictures, I am a collector of beautiful tie backs, outfits, backdrops and props; especially anything floral!

Take a look at this video of the progress of the studio.  It was a labour of love and completely worth it.  I hope you agree!

Some behind the scenes photos of me at work!

If you take any behind the scenes pictures during our sessions, please tag us on Facebook and share them with me.  I love to see them!

Interested in a session at my studio?

We booked Nicki for a maternity photoshoot and a newborn photoshoot. We got some lovely photos from both which lots of people have complimented. One of my favourite photos of both my husband and me and of Evie came from these photoshoots. Nicki was very accommodating and she even managed to incorporate our dog into both sessions. Thanks again Nicki xx

Quality of service. she made customers welcome and babies relaxed. she also took her time preparing babies not rushing or stressing out parents either. photo session continued with ease 🙂

We had a great experience with Nicki. She was super flexible, making sure we got the style of photos we were after, she was great with my 5 month old (and the difficult toddler) and the photos were even better than we imagined. thanks Nicki - we will be back for a mini-shoot soon!

When your images get published in Vogue
