This Photographer’s 90s-Themed Photo Shoots Are Truly Wonderful


Be still our 90s pop hearts. We’ve found a baby photography series that will make all your nostalgic dreams come true.

Cute babies, clever sets and classic props that will transmit you straight back to your childhood and adolescence.

We’re talking The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Mario Brothers, even UNO-themed photoshoots. It’s all here, folks! And we LOVE them!

Hello, baby! Hello, 90s

Thanks to American photographer Nikki Cee, our 90s dreams are now a reality in the form of itty bitty baby photography sweetness. The incredibly talented photographer is stepping out of the standard snuggly blanket box when it comes to newborn photography (and cake smashes) with her elaborate photosets. They are bright, bold, cute and colourful and have classic 90s pop written all over them.

Cake Smashes too!

While the babies are beyond cute, what makes Nikki’s photos stand out is how clever and creative they are. We especially love these one-themed cake smashes!

Of course, Nikki delves outside of the 90s themes too. She’s also done more contemporary Game of Thrones photoshoots, as well as UP!, Minions and Boss Baby.

Plus, she’s got plenty of other adorable non-pop-culture themes – babies huddled up in libraries, floating in a pool, blissed out in a bubble bath, bundled up in a bucket of paint, perched in a pumpkin or sleeping on a sandy beach.

Nikki, who admits she took up photography on a whim six years ago, tells PEOPLE, “I’ve always loved creating things … once I started finding props that I could put babies in, it opened up a new level of creativity.”

“I started finding little buckets, and little couches, and little chairs, beach chairs, all kinds of different things that no one would typically think to put a baby in. Every time I find something that a baby can fit in, I’ll buy it and figure it out later.”
