Thank you so much for checking out Nicki Handel Photography!


When people ask me what I do for a living, my favorite response is: “I freeze time!” After all, what is a picture but a moment of time, frozen in all its wonder and beauty to enjoy for generations to come :). 


My love of photography started very young, and working as a professional Nanny for 12+ years gave me plenty of goofy, lovable kiddos with smiles a mile wide to capture! As I found myself coming to the end of my Nanny career, I realized it was time to decide what I wanted to be when I grew up ;). Some soul searching reminded me that few things in life bring me as much joy as having a camera in my hands, and so I took the leap of faith and Nicki Handel Photography was born!


Back in 2014 when I launched my business, I had no idea just how much I would enjoy turning my love of photography into a career. Running my own business is much harder than I had imagined, but hearing the feedback from client after client on how thrilled they are with their pictures makes my heart fill with joy & lets me know that I am doing what I am meant to do! :)


I especially enjoy the unique opportunity I have to, one day, capture a newborn baby in her first weeks of life and, the next, capture a high school senior on the verge of adulthood. Wow. Over in the snap of a finger, it is THESE moments that I long to capture, so they can be forever preserved & cherished as life moves on.


When a single photograph can instantly bring you back to that moment in time, and with it a flood of beautiful memories, I know have done my job :).


Please feel free to contact me with any questions. Thank you so much for visiting my site and for considering Nicki Handel Photography to capture your family's memories!
