hey there

I’m Nki – an on-location, natural light, family portrait photographer specializing in indoor and outdoor family sessions (maternity and special milestone sessions included).

Based out of Brownsville, Texas, I serve Cameron County and surrounding areas.

Cool story: I was born in Lagos, Nigeria and moved to the U.S. with my family when I was 9 years old. One of my aunts who lived in New York at the time played and won a travel lottery for us (how neat is that!) and it was a life-changing gift.

Fun fact: my full name is Nkiruka. It means “the best is yet to come.” I LOVE my name, yet I’ve found “Nki” (sounds just like “Inky”) is a quick, easy nickname kids and adults remember.

Bonus: I married my college sweetheart and we’re staying sane while raising three rambunctious boys, ages 5, 4 and 1 year.

Our home is filled with laughter and snuggles complete with “this kid is for sale” meltdowns to balance it all out and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

style + substance

My secret power is documenting family love.

My photography style can be described as simple, vibrant and joyful.

Whether it’s to celebrate a milestone or simply to remember your family as you are right now, I’m your girl!

I began proactively documenting my littles when I was expecting my third (I am that annoying camera mama).

I needed to slow time down and capture my growing boys as much as I could.


I never get tired of seeing their faces on our walls or re-living a special family event through an album.

It’s a daily reminder of the good times and the love my family shares.

I’d be honored to do the same for you!

Your family’s story is worth telling – it’s worth remembering.
