“Wonderful experience working with Michele. My family was visiting Solvang for a family celebration and Michele was able to capture some wonderful memories. The photoshoot included group shots of my extended family as well as break out shots of each family with a bunch of photos of the little kids. Michele’s patience with the little ones really made the difference. With little kids involved, things never go according to plan and she stayed very professional and made all the children feel very comfortable. If you are looking for a great photographer book Nikkels Photography.”

During every session, we will have the opportunity to explore and highlight your family’s dynamics. Whether that be super goofy or more serious and
subdued, you will have a variety of both posed and candid moments. Complete direction and assistance will be provided during your session so you won’t be left wondering what to do or how to act. I want your family to laugh, hug, chase, tickle your way through your entire session!

Families larger than 5 can inquire about my extended family rates! Looking for ideas of what to wear, great color palettes, and more, go HERE! Have a question or are ready to book, click HERE! I can’t wait to hear from you. Getting family photos requires a lot of effort and planning. So let me know how I can make it even easier!

“Michele did a great job working with 13 family members! We have 5 kids under 6 and she captured all of their personalities! She was very professional and got our pictures to us very quickly. Our experience was very positive and we would highly recommend Nikkels Photography!”
