Hey y’all. I’m Nikki and I’m the girl behind Nikki Martin Photo. While photography has always been something I love, I always had this little voice in my head that told me I wasn’t good enough to actually DO it, to be responsible and get a “big girl job” because only the best of the best can make a living being a photographer. So that’s exactly what I did and it was great. I loved my job and I was perfectly content working there forever until I found out that I was pregnant. My husband and I always planned on having a family down the road but it was a total shock when we went from hypothetical baby names to picking out nursery bedding. When it was a hypothetical scenario years into the distant future, the plan was for me to stay home and raise our children while he continued to work full time. Well real life happens the way that it does and I just could not bring myself to go back to work after our little girl was born - and I tried, believe me.
Then, a former coworker of mine asked me about shooting her upcoming wedding. I was shocked, excited, and scared to death but I agreed. This is what really made me take a hard look at myself and for the first time, I thought I could do it. This was a defining moment for me and I jumped in with both feet. This was three years ago and my business has been a beautiful whirlwind ever since.
If you’re curious about the girl behind the lens, here is a basic rundown for ya. I collect film cameras and camera charms for my bracelet. I live on Dr. Pepper, pizza, and pumpkin spice lattes. I stay up late and sleep until at least 10:30 on a regular basis. My husband is my best friend and the love of my life. My daughter amazes me every day; I see the best parts of myself in her and she’s already a much better person than I can ever hope to be. I am an animal lover -- my husband and I rescued a beagle mix we call Bear and she's practically our first born. I’m addicted to all things apple and I geek out when they release new products. I live in leggings and maxi dresses because comfort is always the MOST important thing for me - especially when my days consist of chasing a toddler around.
