“One day, all your children will have is pictures of you. Make sure you’re in them. No matter what your hair looks like, your makeup, or your body, they won’t care about any of that, they’ll just see you…”

Hi! I’m Nina. I’m a wife, mother, and professional photographer at Nina K Photography.

Parenthood is awesome. It’s rewarding, fun, hard, and real.

As a photographer, I obviously love to create beautiful, planned, family portraits –  the perfect clothes, the perfect smiles, the perfect lighting.

But I’m also a Mom to three awesome kids.  And I know these moments go fast.  You know, like when they come downstairs wearing 8 different patterns, a cape, cowboy boots and are ready for the day!  Or Saturday mornings, when they are making breakfast with Daddy…or maybe sitting together playing dolls, or hey, even a tantrum or two!

Those every day moments.  They fly by.

So here I combine two things I love most: Family and Photography to help you remember these every day moments…because I think photos speak louder than words.

I’ll take you behind the scenes, from an outside perspective (that isn’t a phone pic) to the no-makeup, coffee brewing, kids playing (or fighting), bacon-cooking, teeth-brushing, family-loving, beautiful, every.day.life. No filter needed.

Social media often has us asking ourselves, are we a good parent? Is our house big enough? Am I skinny enough? Do I have enough friends? Do they really go on that many vacations?  It’s totally normal to compare…but in then end, we are all just humans. And I believe we are all alike more than we think.

If nothing else, hopefully this blog makes you smile…and might even help you stop doubting yourself, in case you ever were.

Sooner than later, these will all just be memories we wish we could have back.

These are the moments to treasure for a lifetime…

Thank you for reading!!
