Nicole Mehl Photography Giveaway

January 14, 2013








I’m so excited about this giveaway and to be honest, a tad jealous that I can’t enter the giveaway to win. {Insert whining}

All whining aside, I couldn't be more honored to spotlight one of my favorite photographers, Nicole Mehl, owner of Nicole Mehl Photography. She is a dear friend of mine and has captured some of the most precious moments in my life. I’m a tad partial to her. She is incredibly beautiful and has an equally beautiful family.

The first time Nicole photographed my hubby and I, it was for my maternity photos. I was blown away with how the pictures turned out; they were absolutely stunning. There are not enough words to explain how talented this beautiful lady is. You just have to see for yourself just; view her portfolio here

I count it a privilege to call her friend and I’m so thankful for her talent in capturing special stories in my life. Some photographers may feel like just “photographers” to their clients, but I hope Nicole knows just how much she means to our family.

When photographers capture moments like Nicole has captured for us, they become so much more to us. They become a part of the story, they become someone you value and appreciate, someone that you are so thankful for, that you could just squeeze them each time you look at a picture they have taken that’s hanging on your wall or posted as your wallpaper on your phone or on your computer at work; they become one of the biggest blessings in our lives.

I’m looking forward to working on one of my 2013 resolutions just so that I can get another session in with Nicole. Hmm...I wonder what session I'm thinking of. ;)

For now though, one of you lucky readers gets the opportunity to have Nicole capture a special moment for you!

Nicole has offered to give to one lucky winner a session for yourself and one for you to give away!

Two 15 minute mini studio sessions
Up to two people
5 images delivered by email
Printing rights included
Must be redeemed in March 2013

Each session valued at $100

How’s that for a giveaway?

I would gift the mini session to my parents. They have been married for 32 years and are true " love birds" that do everything together! They work for the same employer so they even drive to work together and eat lunch every day together! But they have never had any professional pictures taken of the two of them since their wedding! I would love to be able to share with them the gift of Nicole's talent to capture love and beauty in family!

I would give the extra session to my parents. They have been married for 28 years and haven't had pictures taken in years. They are the true meaning if love and they show me everyday how I want my marriage. They are great role models! They deserve this so much.

Such an awesome giveaway. Nicole does beautiful work. I would share the session with my parents. My mom and step dad have never had their pictures done. It's a gift I'm sure they would love.

I would love to win this. I would give this away to my friend who just had twins!!

Rose said...

I would give the extra session to my best friend. she has just recently had a baby in November and has NO pictures with here and her wonderful boyfriend. I think a couple session for them would be awesome! She mentioned on NYE, they don't have one picture of them together... :-(

Karen Stutzman said...

I would give the session to my beautiful stepdaughter. My husband and I are raising her daughter while she is making some drastic positive changes to her life. I would love to have some pictures of the two of them.

Mrs.Heminger said...

I would give the session to my Dad and Mommy. They have been married 24 years and NEVER had professional pictures done. They never had a picture of the two of them, in frame hanging on the of their home; they have everyone else. I feel it time for them to have great pictures to mark there 24 year of love for each other. Thank you for you time! Rachel Heminger

I would love to win this session! I have a newborn and would get photos of my adorable man and give the other session to my momand step dad. They've been together for 20+ years and have never had professional photos taken, even for their wedding.

Andrea Meloche said...

Not only would I LOVE a session with Nicole for my newest little bundle, I would LOVE to share one with my parents as a belated 40th anniversary gift. They haven't had professional photos together since their wedding day. I think it would be amazing for them to have a session together that focuses on them rather than their kids or grandkids. They have done so much for me and my family over the years, I would love to be able to give them a session that would no doubt provide a photo for them to cherish.

I would love to give this gift to my dear friend Tiffany Massela. She is the kindest patient person I know. She has poured her heart into helping people. She has gone on several mission trips to provide eye examinations and deliver medical supplies and eyeglasses to children and adults to under developed countries. She is an inspiration to all of us for her acts of selflessness. She is currently expecting her first child. I would love for her to be able to capture images if her beautiful new family. pay it forward.

I would give my son Steve and his beautiful wife to be Katie the give away session to have there engagement pictures taken. I have seen Nicoles portfolo and would be honored for her to take their pictures. My husband and I have not had a picture together in 31 years it would a wonderful anniversary present for each of us to share with our family.

Bobbie Fogle said...

I would give a mini session to my sister. She just had her first baby, Deacon, and I know how much she would love to have a beautiful picture to look at in the years to come. I would use my session to have my picture taken with my little princess.

I would love to gift this mini session to my thirteen year old stepdaughter, Natalie. With all I the negative body image messages that young ladies are getting now, I would love for Natalie to have the opportunity to work with Nicole to capture some wonderful images of this gorgeous girl. Her dad and I are having our first baby together soon, and it may be nice for Natalie to have something just for her to make her feel beautiful and special at a time where she may feel left out a little bit. She and her mom opted out of professional school pictures this year and it might be nice to have some of Nicole's images to remember and commemorate this transitional time into her teenage years. She is sort of shy and I truly think she could benefit from having a session just for her.

I would give this mini session to one of my dearest friends and her husband who after two years of being separated with divorce papers served, decided to honor their commitment to each other and their children by getting back together. The redemption of their marriage is worth everything! Having the chance for them to start over with a few pictures of just the two of them would be a wonderful and significant way to say "I Do" again.

I would give a session to my sister who is a single mom so that she could have some professional photos of her and her daughter. Nicole does without a doubt some of the best camera work I've seen. The images she captures are lifetime memories and she is a true artist.

I would give the session away to my brother and his girlfriend. They recently had a baby and have no professional pictures of her! It would be perfect for them.

I would gift a session to my daughter. She has grown into such an amazing beautiful young woman with so much heart, she's struggled greatly with self image issues, and peer pressure. I'd love for her to be able to see herself through my eyes and realize how simply beautiful she is inside and out. I would gift the 2nd to my neighbor and best friend who just welcomed her first grandchild after a very difficult summer and has gone through so many life changes, she is an incredibly strong woman and mother who does so much for her family she has me in awe of her strength and determination.

I love Nicole Mehl! Her photography ROCKS. I would give this gift to my sister Kristen and her husband Jared for their 10th wedding anniversary coming up March 22 of this year. My sister Kristen is such a wonderful role model to me, and Kristen and Jared's marriage is filled with love for each other and for God. I am getting married May 26, and I often look to their marriage as an example! Kristen and Jared asked a friend of a friend to do their wedding photography for free, and they didn't turn out too well. In fact many of them didn't turn out at all! I have heard Kristen longingly say so many times that she wishes she had better documentation of her wedding through photographs! My sister rarely does anything special for herself and is always looking out for others. I know how much she would appreciate this gift :-D

My parents! They have been married 44 years and I'd love to see them photographed by Nicole. They have been such a good example to myself and my siblings. I'm proud to be their child. I don't know the last time they were photographed together so this would definitely be a treat!

I would choose my parents. I don't believe they have had professional pictures taken since their wedding day 36 years ago. What a beautiful way to forever preserve their love.

My future mother in law is a photography and has such beautiful prints of myself and my fiance, my future brother in law and his family, but very small prints of her and her husband. I would love for her to have a print of them to hang with the whole families photos! I adore Nicole's work and was saddened to find she was unavailable to shoot our wedding, but would love the opportunity to have a few prints of us by her!
