One of Nikki's passions is photography. While she doesn't get much time to do much artistic photography, she is constantly looking for opportunities to reach out of her comfort zone and find ways to put her lenses to use.

In displaying photographic work on five.thirty.one, Nikki is simply providing a venue to show an additional facet of her creative work. And, if someone asks, she might oblige. On occasion, she has been asked to shoot family gatherings or portraits. She has shot two engagement sessions and three weddings (but wasn't crazy about all the weekend work).

Nikki never leaves home without a camera (even if it's just the point and shoot packed away in her purse)!

Little-known fact: Nikki inherited her photographic knowledge and skill from her father.
