I had the honor of photographing my BOMB assistant (and her mama!) in my studio this weekend! This lady right here is everything to the NMP Studio. There's a ton of work that happens behind the scenes, and she graciously and efficiently takes care of it all. WHILE LOOKING LIKE THIS. Amanda also runs her own photography business and has created the unique concept of Timeline Photography! To learn what that is, head to her page at @peopleofeden! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #headshots #personalbranding #modernportrait #studio #nikkimoorephotography #lnk #lincolnnebraska #studioassistant #studiomanager #lincolnne
Nebraska, you're such a flirt. Snow, rain, sun, ice, sleet, t-shirt weather, blizzard. All in a week. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I'm so ready for a thaw! I have plans for our yard to be amazing this year. I want to get our little veggie garden producing again (it's been like 3 years!). Sadly, our chickens have all met their ends, so that means we're going to call the end of the chicken years (at least for now) and re-seed our backyard to be grassy and soft again. I want to include lots of random wildflower seeds around the perimeter for fun surprises. We have a bin of incredible organic compost that's been untouched (only added to continually) for ~5 years, so I can't wait to see what that black gold can do for our green spaces. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I'm not a lawn person - I despise the idea of planting and maintaining silly green lawns for looks only. But after a few years of a mostly mud backyard (chickens have not been kind to it) I'm ready for a green oasis for the babies to tumble and play in :) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What’s on your spring to-do list?? #spring #winter #whatseasonisit #springfever #cabinfever #ice #nebraska #macrophotos #nikkimoorephotography #lnk #midwest #midwestlife #midwestlifestyle
Happy International Women's Day! Here's to strong women! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ May we KNOW them. I'm lucky to know (and work alongside) many incredibly strong women. And the thing I’ve observed is this: nobody (I mean NOBODY) is strong without having been through a battle. When you meet a strong person (man or woman) know that they have faced something incredibly challenging. If you can get through it and come out on the other side - scarred but ready to help another through - you are strong. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ May we BE them. To be honest, I don't always think of myself as strong. I can do hard things and I make a habit of that, but I don't always feel strong in the middle of it. Actually I feel weak and raw far more often than I feel strong. But I love the Hebrew blessing of eschet chayil which means a woman of valor. Isn't VALOR a beautiful and powerful word? Even through the mistakes and failures and regrets and panic attacks and big unanswered questions, we become women of valor by faithfully practicing our calling and our convictions. Nevertheless, she persisted. May I persist in humility, faithfulness, servanthood, justice, kindness, courage and love! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ May we RAISE them. While I haven't yet been gifted with a girl to raise, I'm so proud of my fellow mamas who are raising up the next generation of strong, compassionate, courageous women. (You raise the amazing girls - and I'll work on raising up the boys who aren't intimidated by them!) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Tag a strong, brave, courageous woman YOU know and tell them so! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #internationalwomensday #neverthelessshepersisted #eschetchayil #womanofvalor #nikkimoorephotography #herestostrongwomen #strongwomen #womensday
The beautiful and talented @jennifer.schultz came by the studio for branding portraits! She works in Lincoln as a photographer and we shoot a lot of the same things. I love working with other photographers and always find myself chatting a TON during the shoot! 😬 Can’t wait to share more of this beauty! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #personalbranding #businessbranding #nikkimoorephotography #headshots #communityovercompetition #lnk #lincolnnebraska #lincolnne #branding #portraits #studioportraits
how today feels, after enjoying the almost 70 degree weekend... How do you “feel warm” on yucky cold days like this?? (taken somewhere over the mountains of Oregon last year) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #alwayswinter #mountains #outtheplanewindow #windowseat #oregon #nikkimoorephotography #winter #foreverwinter
Sneak preview of from our colorful and vibrant photo shoot at the Lincoln @graduatehotels !

Here's another little corner of my studio on the second floor! I like to change up my displays regularly and this corner usually never looks the same twice...especially after a shoot where everything upstairs gets rearranged. (The necessity of using a small space for multiple purposes!) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #nikkimoorephotography #smallbusiness #businessmindset #lnk #nebraska #nebraskaphotographer #officespaces #creativehappylife #creativeminds #hardwork #lincolnne #lincolnnebraska #whereiwork #studiospace
Reminiscing about the dry, warm desert of southern California...our @airbnb just outside Joshua Tree National Forest was an absolute dream, and full of quirky touches like this old midcentury chair. Our family had the best time at the beautiful JTNP and we’d love to to back one day. ❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #joshuatree #joshuatreenationalpark #midcentury #furniture #airbnb #nikkimoorephotography #vacation
