Nicola Ellen Photography - 'capturing memories & treasured moments'

Hi I'm Nikki, I’m a newborn, maternity and wedding photographer based in Kent covering Ashford,  Canterbury, Folkestone and Faversham.  

I was born in Ashford and grew up in Folkestone for most of my life until I moved to live near Canterbury.

For the majority of my adult life, I have always worked with children and have a BA Honours degree in Primary Education and was a Primary School Teacher for many years. Which from that I like to think that I am patient. I also have two little girls of my own, Emily and Alice, who are often my models when I want to try something new and when you come to the studio you will see their portraits displayed. Emily and Alice are my will to keep going and to keep. 


My journey in photography came when I was pregnant with my first, Emily. My Dad gave me his camera and from then I just took photos wherever I went. After this I knew I wanted to do more and a couple of years later after having my second little girl, Alice - Nicola Ellen Photography was born. 

My favourite thing to do is meet new people and I love being able to capture memories and treasured moments for people to look at for years to come. ​


What Clients Are Saying

“We chose Nikki for our newborn shoot. She has a lovely studio, where we felt relaxed and comfortable. She was brilliant at settling our baby and time was never an issue. We took lots of time between pictures for breastfeeding and changes as needed. We took our 3 year old too for some family and sibling shots. she was brilliant with him too, and we felt comfortable letting him play during the shoot. Nikki listened to our wishes and styled the pictures the way we wanted . We are over the moon with our images and would definitely recommend her to others.  .”
