I have been informed that Nicki Handel Photography has just been named one of the Best Maternity Photographers in Madison for 2017 by Expertise! How cool is that?!!
Obviously, I am beyond thrilled to have my work recognized. I have to say, the fact that it is for Maternity shoots specifically is just so perfect. Maternity shoots will always hold an especially close place to my heart, as my very first shoot as a “real” photographer was a Maternity shoot. In fact, that shoot happened 3 years ago this month, so what a beautiful reward for all the hard work of the last 3 years to have my business recognized!
It feels like I've come full circle :).
The notice of this recognition comes at such a perfect time too, as I just began an extensive training workshop that will take my Maternity photography to a whole new level. Through this incredible education opportunity, I am learning from some of the best maternity photographers in the industry. With training in everything from capturing the emotion between parents-to-be, to use of lighting in ways to create stunning imagery, to creative posing, this education will help guide me to really improve my maternity portraits that much more.
What better way to improve my skills than to learn from the very best? :)
That's one thing that I will always carry with me, no matter how long I am in business: I believe like there is always more I can learn, always more room for me to grow as a Photographer, and it's so important to me to constantly be striving to become that much better at what I do.
I am so excited to take what I am learning and use it to create even more incredible portraits for my beautiful expecting mommas!!!
Of course, I have to take a moment to thank Expertise for recognizing me; I'm so grateful and honored. However, my greatest thanks goes to all my beautiful clients who allow me to continue doing what I love. Thank you all for letting me be a part of capturing some of the most important moments in your life; it is a blessing and my honor :).
