Metro Detroit area portrait photographer, Nicole Mehelich is known for creating a relaxed and fun atmosphere for her clients. While much of her business is focused on family and child portraiture, she also photographs headshots, glam/boudoir, seniors, events and couples.
Nicole has a studio available (sometimes a must in the cold Michigan winters), but loves to go on-location in a client’s home or a unique outdoor setting. She enjoys discovering new places, especially those that are unexpected. She has shot at a variety of parks, backyards, downtown locations, and hidden gems off the beaten path. If you have an interesting idea for a location, just say so!
Nicole has had a passion for photography since the age of 13. Her father, a photographer himself, gave her a vintage Ciro-flex camera and taught her how to process film and make prints in his home darkroom. By high school, she had a reputation for having a camera with her at all times.
What do past clients have to say?
“Just wanted to let you know that my parents and other extended family are positively ape over the photo book. The pictures really are spectacular; there were literally gasps of delight as they paged through.”
"Nicole spent a considerable amount of time with my precocious and preoccupied 3-year old daughter to capture very beautiful poses. Her photographs represented my daughter's unique personality - they weren't cookie-cutter poses at all. I was very pleased with Nicole's work, and I hope to work with her again in the near future!"
“Nicole has the innate ability to catch people in the tiniest of moments and to put her customers at ease. Her work with both children and adults is captivating. Her images pull you in and, more often than not, fill you with joy.”
