About Nicole

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you only shoot on-location?
I often shoot on-location. At a park, in your home, at a museum... anywhere. For those who would rather come to a studio, I do also have an in-home studio space. For newborns, I'll usually have you come to the studio, but if I can, I'll use natural light in the studio so that I don't startle them. Order sessions are at my home studio.
How much does it cost?
To reserve a one-hour photo session, there is a $250 retainer, due within five days of booking your session to hold the date. This includes a $150 print credit*. We offer 8×10″ gift prints starting at $35 and portrait collections beginning at $380. The average Nicole Mehelich Photography client invests $500-$2,500 on their photography. $150 print credit is included in the session fee. *print credit is non-refundable

"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!"
