We first met in 6th grade, and although we went to school together and graduated in the same class, we never ran around in the same crowd. Cris was popular and played sports, and was also Homecoming King, which he likes to brag about, and I (Nikki) was just friends with everyone!
It wasn't until ten years later at a local restaurant that Cris asked for my phone number and we have been inseparable ever since. In December 2011, Cris (in his simple man way) got down on one knee and proposed, and with their closest friends and family as witness, we got married on September 21, 2012.
Two years later, we bought their first home and decided to start a family. Having a child of our own was not in the cards, so we were lead to adopt. On October 22nd, 2014 we were able to witness our beautiful little girl, Lakelee, being born, and as we brought her home, we knew that God could not have given us a more gorgeous, intelligent and perfect gift.
When we aren't hanging out behind the camera, you will probably find us doing home improvement projects, going to concerts, spending time with friends and family, going on adventures, or just piled up on the couch with our daughter and the dogs.

My decision to pursue a career in photography came about after my father passed away unexpectedly on Feb. 29th, 2012. B.loved was born out of a desire to to capture every moment I could because that experience taught me that life is so short. The "B" represents my father and the "loved" is because I love him more than anything in the world. When I put the two together, I saw "Beloved", and I knew that name couldn’t be more perfect!
