Cherish Yourself: Love who you are!


You are beautiful. Yes you! You are strong and amazing and capable of achieving anything you put your mind to! I believe in you and so should you!

I am taking a moment to cherish women. We are the biggest critics of ourselves. We are the ones you get inside our own heads and tell ourselves we aren’t worth it or can’t do it. The reality is, we can. We just forget how amazing we are and need reminding every now and again.

I asked several women to write about themselves. To think how they would describe themselves and put their hearts on to paper. The response was very emotional but everyone said they loved the chance to stop and reflect on themselves. I want to start this series by sharing my own. It is only fair that I start with myself because I did it too. Yes it was really hard to write about myself but I love that I did.

Here is the first of many “Love who you are” stories!



Who Am I?

My Name is Nikki

I am a 31 year old wife and the proud mother of 6 year old daughter and an 8 year old son.

I love the simple things but I also dream big! I am confident but have insecurities. I am determined and yet
doubt myself. I am incredibly lucky and I am strong.

I love my life, I love my family. I will fiercely defend both. I am usually plain but I love to be glamourous too.
I am enriched by life.

I am a photographer and I get to capture beauty. I have a passion for photographing real moments and real
people. I love to help people see the beauty they possess but sometimes can’t see. I love my job. I love seeing women
rediscover that spark within themselves. I am grateful.




happy wheels

    What a beautiful concept Niki! It's so good to see someone take an initiative and step outside the box. Women all over the globe need encouragement and what a lovely way to get us to look inside our hearts to see what is truly there. Well done!
