dallas photo shoot ~ nikki

This is my lovely friend Nikki.  Currently, Nikki lives and does mission work in Haiti.  A few weeks ago, she came to The States to work on a worship album she is making {I’ll keep you all posted when she releases it}.  Nikki and I were college friends and hadn’t seen each other in over ten years {because I’m that old, y’all!}, but had gotten back in touch with each other via the wonderful world of Facebook.  Our friendship is one that never really died, so it didn’t have to be rekindled, we just needed to fan the flames a little. :)  That’s what Facebook messaging is for, right?  When Nikki mentioned that she would need photos for her worship album, I jumped at the chance to see her again in person and get to do a cool photo shoot.

We had exactly one day that worked for both of us, when Nikki would be in Dallas before making the trip back to Haiti – and wouldn’t you know it turned out to be cold and rainy that day??  But no worries, Nikki had a chat with William Shatner and snagged a great deal on Priceline for a room at The Westin in Dallas.  We were able to do the entire shoot around the hotel, and I am so happy with the images we got!

Before we started shooting, we just sat and talked for a few hours, and it was almost as if no time had passed since we had last seen each other.  I am so thankful for the blessing of getting to do what I love while connecting or reconnecting with amazing people.


You are so beautiful, inside and out!  I am excited to see what God has in store for you this year.  Thank you for having me do this shoot of you.  Seeing you and chatting with you was good for my heart and soul. :)  I love you, friend.

These are beautiful, Abi and Nikki!!! Nikki, I didn’t realize you were stateside AND doing an album! How cool! Best of luck with that!
Abi, amazing images as always. Wish I could’ve been a fly on the wall for all of this. ;)
