About Nikki Painter Photography WV Newborn Photographer


Hello! I’m Nikki Painter, the owner and photographer at Nikki Painter Photography!

I’m passionate about a lot of things but on the top of the list is God and my family. I know my clients feel the same way about their own families. So I strive to make sessions and images the best that I can so there will be amazing memories to look back on in the years to come. I am a mom to FOUR beautiful children and I have been photographing newborns for over 6 years! While I love to get creative and turn your baby’s portrait into a work of art you can proudly display in your home, SAFETY and your baby’s care is my very first concern! Choosing your newborn photographer is a tough decision, especially as more and more people are in the photography business.  Many of the cheaper photographers don’t have the experience needed to get amazing images at every session. Check out my post on Choosing a Newborn Photographer – A Guide for Parents if you’re still in the decision making process.

All images are an expression of MY ART from start to finish beginning with YOU! My heart and creativity goes into every every session, for every client! My goal is to make the session as stress free as possible and bring out the natural expressions in everyone present. I especially love working with newborns, babies and children! I’ve been thanked many times for my relaxed approach and patience with children, during my sessions. I’m very laid-back and don’t stress easily. I want you to be comfortable so I will certainly chat it up just as I would with my own friends I will never make you feel rushed by putting a ‘time-limit’ on your session. When you book with me, I’m there to do whatever it takes to get great images – that sometimes means waiting on babies to nurse, soothe and sleep, or toddlers to snack and rest.

Thank you for considering me to take such important first images of your newborn baby. These images are even more important than your wedding photography. So don’t let this time slip away without capturing it!

I want to be your newborn photographer!
