Welcome to the Nickola Balsdon Blog


Nickola Balsdon

Hello and welcome!


First and foremost I am a mom. My children are the reason I do most things in my life. They are my WHY.


I am currently based in the Lowveld near the Kruger Park in South Africa and have recently moved here from Kloof in Durban on the east coast. I am a well-known and loved professional newborn artist & photographer in my community, mom of two and business success coach for newborn photographers.


I am also the founder and mastermind behind the Newborn Photographers Network South Africa and very proud to be an invited judge for the Admired In Africa Photo Competition for the second year running (2018/2019), alongside an incredible panel of local artists and photographers, as well as international newborn photographer and icon, Ana Brandt on the newborn and maternity side.


My passions are to photograph and document my clients journeys through pregnancy, birth and all the stages of baby — from birth and Fresh48, through to newborn, sitter and family; and equally importantly, to empower other female entrepreneurs to live their best life with love, compassion, ambition and balance!


As moms we tend to put everyone first in our lives and that can become very tiring, dissatisfying and overwhelming at times. I believe self care and time out from time to time are neccessary to be the best mom, business women, best partner and best person you can be in this life.


I am dedicated to coaching women from around the world who want to build better newborn photography businesses, that are sustainable and profitable, and that serve both their clients and their lifestyles. I am the online course creator of ShootBaby — The ultimate business resource for newborn photographers which is launching this August 2019. Here I combine my 20+ years of PR, marketing communications, business strategy and work experiences with my passion for photography and uplifting the international newborn photographers community.


Nickola is also the founder of the Newborn Photographers Network South Africa and the studio owner and principle photographer of Nickola Balsdon Photography based in the Lowveld, South Africa. Her work has been featured in several publication, including Living & Loving, Canon CLICK magazine and in a variety of national advertising and social media campaigns across South Africa for Comfort Pure and NooNoo Pie baby carriers.
