8 Years of experience

I am a self-taught photographer that started out with a how hard could it be attitude. I quickly learned that it was much harder than I expected it to be.

I love capturing the candid moments of children playing and not worrying about the big camera pointing at them.

A fun fact about me

I first picked up a camera when my then girlfriend needed model headshots to get a modeling gig. Took it back to walmart after the shoot and then thought wow that was easy. Boy was I wrong. But I watched tutorials did online classes and wanted to sell my camera. It was harder than I thought. But I stuck with it.

    Niko went above and beyond for my family today. My party consisted of a 15 month old child, 4 month old pup and 3 year old dog. YIKES!!!! His patience and dedication to capture the perfect shot for us was very evident. I can't thank him enough for a job well done.

    Beautiful photos, I really love the one with the guy in black and white holding the guitar and the flames with the hair most of all. Priceless
