My shoot for Penthouse was my most memorable shoot so far.
Nothing beats light and fluffy homemade banana pancakes drizzled with sticky syrup on a lazy morning, especially when they’re cooked for you by a beautiful blonde and served between the sheets. Whet your appetite and feast your eyes on the delicious Nikki, who serves up some sweet with a side of sauciness in this tasty shoot by Troy Freyee.
“My shoot for Penthouse was definitely my most memorable shoot so far,” Nikki says. “I felt so empowered and comfortable. Troy and I shot in Cabarita at a little quirky shack. It had so much character, which was perfect for the vintage housewife vibes we were going for.”
The model from the Gold Coast says she’s actually an introvert at heart. “I’m a total homebody. I love my privacy and spend a lot of time by myself reading, listening to podcasts and music, and going hiking,” Nikki tells Penthouse.
“When it comes to shooting, I prefer to not be the main attraction in a photo, but rather just part of the scene. I want people to be able to look at a picture and imagine themselves in the scene.”
Nikki says she’s drawn to nude photography because she believes the female body should be celebrated. “I think nude photography is still a bit taboo, and I’d like to think that I might be able to encourage women to embrace and normalise their naked bodies. Women’s bodies are beautiful in all their many forms.”
Nikki’s as confident in the kitchen as she is in front of the camera lens, and says she loves cooking for herself and her friends. “Although I’m baking up something naughty in this shoot, I’m actually really passionate about healthy eating and generally steer towards the nutritious recipes when cooking at home.”
We’d probably eat kale and enjoy it if Nikki dished it up for us.
