Hi! My name is actually Nikki, not Madelyn. Madelyn was my great grandmother and Jane was my grandmother. I wanted something different than just my name, and liked that they were family names. I'm 37, divorced, (it's all good) and the mother of a wonderful 10 year old girl named Alexa. Even though I only have the one child, she's really equivalent to about three... I love her to pieces, but she drives me nuts! Anyone with children, can understand! BUT, she has truly been the source of my inspiration. She is smart, charming, precocious, and so very witty. She gets it from her mother, of course. :) You will see her throughout my site. I have always loved photography, but really discovered a passion for it  when she was born. 

     I've learned throughout my journey that  life is very fleeting. Taking time to stop and appreciate the things that  are taken for granted, is essential. I try and incorporate this into my everyday life.  Whether it's Alexa saying, "I love you, Mama",  sharing some great laughs with friends or my English bulldog jumping on my white couch... :-/  The wonderful glass of wine at the end of the day.. Whatever it is, I try and take it all in. The good, the bad and the ugly. At the end of the day, I believe these experiences makes us who we are. 

     To me, photography stops time. It gives us the gift of remembrance. Those moments in life that we forget because our busy lives got in the way. I believe one of the best things we can pass on to our families is our life story in pictures. With that being said, I want to thank you for stopping by. I truly hope to have the opportunity to work with you and your family and to help share your story. :)
