Hello and welcome to Nickola Balsdon Photography.


I am a professional portrait photographer who specialises in family portraits, women's portraiture and personal branding for business owners and creative entrepreneurs.


I'm located in White River, Mpumalanga at the beautiful White River Country Estate (just off the R40) and have been a professional photographer for over 20 years. My career began in film and fine art photography back in 1997.


My business is centred around preserving family memories and creating personal branding images that tell a story. Everything I do is centred around your client experience, especially for those who are new parents or have family with young children. Many of my clients come to me to create beautiful pieces of wall art for their homes - whether a central family piece for an entrance hallway or a collection of images. 


Life move so quickly and it's so important to capture your special moments in life and print your images, so that one day your children and grandchildren can enjoy the stories that go with them and see where they come from. Sadly, were facing an entire 'digital' generation of children and families that will leave no trace behind them, like our parents and grandparents did for us...


On this note, I offer my clients a variety of beautiful wall art, keepsake albums and image folio boxes. I am well known for creating and sourcing special print products for our clients and helping them turn their images into beautiful artwork and decor for their homes. 


I aim to serve you the best way I can with your custom photography needs.
