Art & Life with Nikki Rivera

Today we’d like to introduce you to Nikki Rivera.

Nikki, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
Photography has always been something I’ve loved. After taking a few classes focused on film photography around 10 years ago, I quickly became fascinated with the idea of freezing a moment in time and savoring life’s journey through the art of photography.

For years, it was a hobby and something I did to fulfill my passion for creating. Around two years ago, after finishing nursing school, I decided to make it my full-time focus while specializing on the two things I cherish most… Travel and Love. My photography is focused around unique settings, and capturing the personalities of my couples in a way that is unique to them.

Can you give our readers some background on your art?
As with many artists, I strive to create Art that captures emotion. I want my photography to not only be visually stunning but also develop a mood that is unique to each couple/client. I want to give my viewer a sense of what each couple is truly like, whether that’s fun and flirty towards each other, or a little more reserved and intimate.

I also strive to create different settings for each couple/client. I really love working in beautiful places, and find that most of my clients like the adventurous side of my photography.

Any advice for aspiring or new artists?
As cliche as it sounds, follow your passions! Dive in with no hesitation, value your work, and search for clients who do the same. Try shooting outside of your comfort zone, and know that everybody has room for growth. Lastly, stick with it. Don’t let failure discourage you, or keep you from your full potential.
