START YOUR JOURNEY
Boudoir photography isn't about changing how you or your body looks. It's about changing how you view it, redefining your narrative, and embracing the chapter you're in—one snapshot at a time. Together, we'll capture your unique story through art that lets the real you emerge through.

They all came out beautifully and perfect. Niki captured my story. The innocence in pink. The sweetness in the wings. The bad ass in the black. The sexiness and beauty in all. I cried because all the insecurities I had made no sense. I truly realized I am beautiful, I am sexy, I am amazing. Thank you Niki for making me fall in love with myself."
I cried when I saw my photos. Tears of joy!
From the moment I showed up at Niki's beautiful home I felt cared for, special, doted on and part of the creative process to make my photo shoot everything I had imagined and more. And that was just the shoot itself... the photos - OH MY GOD. Incredible. True works of art, in every way - Niki is an absolute master of her craft. I now have these works of art as a reminder forever of who I am, my inner goddess shining through me on my darkest days. Niki gave me a gift I will never ever let go of.
