  1. oh nikki these are all so great! this family is super cute!

  2. I love love love the one of just Taylor and Maddie, they are off center and smiling beautifully... perfection! Great Photo shoot!

  3. I love these Nikki - absolutely beautiful!! I couldn't pick just one favorite - I love the second shot and the second to last! So sweet!

  4. I am hoping to enter my best friend in your Mother's Day Portrait selection. She is a wonderful mother to 4 children, ages 12-21. Unfortunately, 2 weeks ago was diagnosed with advanced Ovarian Cancer, and will begin her rigorous chemo on the Friday before Mother's Day, with a planned major surgery this summer. She is a do-er, involved in the kids' schools, sports, scouts, neighborhood, and her work. I would like to capture her entire family in a portrait very soon - before she loses her hair. I believe that many of the families in her support system would love to have a portrait of their own - I would create a little shrine to her in the center of my dining room so that my entire family will stay mindful and prayerful of her and her family.

  5. Beautiful shots Nikki!! I especially love the last one! Nothing puts a smile on my face faster than seeing complete silliness in a little one. :)

    I'd love to enter for a free family session for my family, although I'd happily pay you for your work too!!

    My brother and I reconnected with our birth mother last August after having no contact with her for 23 years. Talk about an amazing experience to go through as adults! Now that I am a mother myself, I think I have more of an open mind to open myself up to my mother and let her in my life and because I have been that way, I now have 2 wonderful mothers and my daughter now has 3 grandmas! :) Although this would be a family portait of my family, it would really be a gift for my birth mom, whose last picture of my brother and I were from over 25 years ago when we were just small children. She has become "Mom" again over the phone and through the internet (she lives in Missouri) and has become Grandma Nini to my daughter and I know that she would treasure this very much.

    Thank you for considering us!


  6. I absolutely love all of them, but one if my favorites is the one of Madi and Taylor the view is looking down on them , so adorable. I have been a single mom for a little over a year now, and it's been a rough one, I would love to be able to do something fun like a photo shoot with my daughter. It would be something to always remember that everything her and I are going through that we will always gave each other.

  7. Great photos! Looks like a fun and vibrant family. I would like to be entered into your drawing because after spending thousands of dollars on testing and years trying, I was told I could/would never have children. And now I am blessed to be the prould mother of a beautiful, funny, smart toddler in her terrible threes. My miracle just turned three and I would love a porttrait session to capture this moment in time.
