Hello, my name is Nicki Hicks and the biggest joy in my life are my 2 boys. Photography has always been a passion of mine. I have always loved taking photographs and looking at them, getting to see the joy in a photograph and story being told amazes me.
After my first son was born I photographed every move he made. Soon after we were blessed with another son, it was then that I realized my love for photography had grown and I wanted to capture more than just my own family.
In 2003 I decided to leave my job of 6 years and become a stay at home mom and pursue my Photography career. In the beginning, I was self-taught, but then wanted to learn even more so I signed up for a few photography courses to further my knowledge. This Spring I had the honor of teaching a group of young “Shutter Bugs” a course located at the Campbell River Sportsplex. I also enjoy volunteering for Cameryn's Cause for Kids, an organization that is near and dear to my heart.
My photo sessions are natural and fun, either in the comfort of your home or an outdoor location of your choice. I love capturing the innocence of a child, the glow of an expecting mother, family laughter, the love between recently married couples and the deep love of a long time couple. All photo sessions make me smile and make me love my job even more.
Some of my Loves and Interests:
I LOVE Chai Tea Lattes
I have a slight obsession with antiques,old chairs and frames
I love old barns, I wish I had one in my back yard
In the summer my relaxing time is camping with my family
I love love love to dance (sometimes me and the kids turn up the tunes and have a dance party)
My husband and I play slo-pitch together
In the fall I love snuggling by the woodstove
If I could chalkboard everything I would
My goal with photography is to have my photos fill your soul with happiness and lasting memories.
I am so very grateful for all the wonderful families I have had the pleasure of photographing and look forward to meeting new families and seeing others grow.
