But all this stuff is also true:
Lucky Photography was dreamt up over ten years ago at Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC where wet both met :)
This dream had no name, no tangible evidence of becoming a reality, just two college students with a passion
and hope to be in a business together doing what we love.
We met “studying” photography at FIT. After graduation. Nikki continued to work at a photography store perfecting her craft, while Melanie
tried her hand at being a freelance artist, medical biller and student. A couple of years went by and Nikki became part owner of a photo studio; Picture This!; in Cedarhurst, Long Island at just 21 years old! The studio was a great learning experience, and helped to build a very loyal client base. Fast forward a few years, some weddings and babies later, the thought of working from home became practical and empowering for us both.
And so ... Lucky Photography was born!
As our babies grew, so did Lucky Photography and one day, surrounded by screaming toddlers we revisited that crazy dream from a decade ago. It looks a little different than how we imagined it, but so much greater too. Nicolette is our photographer, (as she likes to say, “The Talent”), Melanie is behind the scenes, in the office making sure we build this business as big as we can dream it.
