Thanks for stopping by.....

I am Nicki Ahrens, the owner and lead photographer of Nicki Ahrens Photography.  Apart from being a mom and photographer, one of my greatest accomplishments, is spending the last 23 years, with the one I call, “Mine”.  My sweet hubby, David and I, have 6 AMAZING kiddos.  They range in age from 21 to 5, including 4 boys and 2 girls.  Our littlest one came as a complete surprise to us 7 years after our 5th.  She is the biggest blessing ever, to all of us!!!

Life can be difficult as well as rewarding.  As I reflect upon the lessons life has taught me throughout the years, I believe it has developed and prepared me for the photographer I have become.  Investing time and being intentional in connecting with my kids and my family, has been very important to me.  Due to the nature of our family, I have had to navigate through one life stage to the next.  All of this, while trying to balance challenging life situations and diverse personalities within our family. Through the years of connecting with my kids and each of their personalities, I have learned so much about the way I approach different situations and bring that with me to each wedding experience. Whether it is for a memorable wedding day, a high school senior session or a family.  I am comfortable working and connecting with all personality types and look forward to capturing priceless moments for you on your special day or event.  My goal is to capture real.  Nothing forced or posed, setting your mind at ease to capture the REAL you.
