About Nicki.... Photographer, Mother, Granddaughter & Friend
Hey Everyone! I just would like to begin by introducing myself & say I appreciate you taking time to visit! As your photographer I don't spend much time elaborating about me, and instead focusing on my clients... :) NO PUN INTENDED!! (Sorry for the lame photographer humor!)
Anyways.... I am now 28yrs old and on February 14th of 2016 I became a mommy and was given a forever Valentine...his name is Rider! I have never known a love so pure and true, it truly is such an amazing experience learning with him and watching him grow!
"As quick as the shutter closes, another priceless moment has passed, but at least that moment has allowed time to stand still, visually making memories that last."- Nicki Rutledge
As a child I was always being photographed by my mom of coarse, but my entire childhood was recorded on video by my grandfather, POP. So naturally this is where I began my love for capturing precious memories. I lost my mother at the age of 19, and my aunt less than a year prior, both of my grandparents only two daughters. After you loose those of whom you love dearly, you start to miss their voice, their smile, their eyes... you really start to realize the importance of photographs and old movies. Yes, I agree it is a bitter sweet romance, but bringing back the happy times and remembering them at their best is what they would want and nothing less!
Photography is obviously a passion and very dear to my heart. Being able to capture my clients memories is such a wonderful experience that I truly love! Whether it be a quick 10 minute session of 3 images or an hour session of chasing around a toddler.... even capturing the passion during the first kiss of two newly weds, irregardless, those moments are what keep my soul alive from day to day. I love getting to know each of my clients and their individual personalities while watching them grow into a family. That is why I chose photography as a profession, what better way to live than by making memories your timeless keepsakes.
