Documentary Photography
For your family's fleeting moments
Serving Austin & Central Texas

Atlas & Ko

Not your typical family photos.

You want your photos to document who you are and who you love. You want photos that remind you of the magic woven in to your day to day, the moments that you hold near and dear to your heart. You want family photos that are a work of art.

My name is Nikole

I'm not taking photos for you to love tomorrow, I'm taking photos for your family to love thirty years from now.

I often find myself looking at photos of my son taken the week he was born. I'll admire his tiny feet and dark brown hair. His feet are so big now and his hair much lighter. I especially love the photos of my husband and I giving him his first bath outside under the trees. Outside baths have come to be one of my favorite things to do with him. He changes every single day and those photos just become more valuable to me as time goes on. I know I'll want to show these photos to him when he has a baby of his own and can't wait to compare their features. I'm grateful I get to document his life and I wanted to be able to share this gift with other families.

So hi hello, welcome to Atlas & Ko. 

Tired of fake smiles and forced poses?

So am I.

I am here to document and preserve the fleeting moments of your life. Not to force you to be someone you're not. I promise to hold space for you to come as you are while balancing direction and documentation to deliver creative and artistic images that tell your story.
