photographing families in central minnesota and the twin cities area






Hi! I'm Nicole, but now that we're friends, you can call me Nikki. I’m a Minnesota based photographer serving clients from Central Minnesota to the Twin Cities. I'm a wife and a mama to the sweetest little boy. I live for warm summer days, sunsets and spending as much time with my husband and son as I can because time goes by too fast. I thrive off meeting new people and leaving a stamp on their lives with the photos I capture. I’m a fast learner with a type A personality and have many passions in life – a favorite being photography.

You deserve photos that make you feel emotion, and that mean the world to you. time goes by so fast, but photos are a time capsule that last a lifetime.

tell your story

I take pride in being hands on with clients from the very beginning — providing style and session guides, emailing with clients prior to their session helping select outfits and location, guiding them through the session, and more. I want it all to be a fun, seamless and a stress free experience. 


and milestone




I found Nicole Marie Photography through Instagram and immediately wanted to book her for our newborn session after browsing through her website and profile. Working with Nikki was so great throughout the entire process. She had great communication before, during, and after her sessions. She offered advice on styling and posing as well, which made the session effortless. We loved working with her so much that we did a family session the next year and plan on working with her in the future when we have our second baby early this summer!
