Hello and welcome to Nickola Balsdon Photography.


I am a professional portrait photographer who specialises in family portraits, professional head shots, lifestyle and personal branding for coaches, speakers, business owners and creative entrepreneurs.


My studio, specialising in capturing newborn and baby photographs is located in White River, Mpumalanga at the beautiful White River Country Estate (just off the R40). I have been a photographer for over 20 years and come from a film photography background.


I'm very much about client experience, especially as a new parent or family with young children, and serving you the best way I can with your custom photography needs.


I offer my non-corporate portrait session 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.
