Nicki Metcalf Photography | Head Shots For Photographers

Studio Photography

Oh I just LOVE LOVE LOVE this girl!!! When Nicki and I first met last year, she was a little firecracker of energy and I immediately knew we’d be friends! She is one of the sweetest + most encouraging photographers I know + she is just downright ADORABLE. I mean, wait until you scroll through these head shots!!! I was SO honored to do them for her!!

When she arrived at my studio, Nicki looked KILLER with hair + makeup done by ELLE Style Studio¬†in Richmond! She brought tons of adorable pieces to choose from and we put together three amazing looks for her. We shot in studio for the first portion of her session + then headed outside (even though it was grey and rainy) to shoot her last two looks! I just can’t get enough of these – Nicki ROCKED her boho chic style and, even though it’s not my typical favorite, shooting on a grey day totally added to the feel of her shoot!

Enjoy my favorites from Nicki’s head shot session + leave her some love!!!
