Hello and welcome to Kelly Nichols Photography, where capturing real moments in an artistic and expressive way is my vision and achieving that goal for your memories is my mission.

I am a freelance photographer working in the Hampton Roads and surrounding areas. With over 30 years of experience in photography, combined with a background in commercial art, design and marketing, I like to create images that are artistic and unique. I want the images that I create for you to transcend time and become a valuable asset in your memories for years to come.

Although I have studied art and photography, I am essentially a self-taught photographer, gaining knowledge and experience through simply doing what I love.

I love photography too much to limit myself to one particular style or genre. When you hire me, you can be assured that artistic vision is foremost in my mind, as is capturing the essence of the people, places and events that I photograph.

My fine art photography has been exhibited in a local gallery and many of my photographs have been chosen by reputable photography websites for stock and licensing sales.

I am a native of the Hampton Roads area, having lived in Hampton, Newport News and Gloucester. I work throughout the area including, but not limited to, the Virginia Peninsula, South Hampton Roads, the Middle Peninsula, Williamsburg and Richmond. I will also work outside these areas with an extra charge for my travel.

I am professional, creative and flexible. You will find me easy to work with and open to new ideas and concepts. I help you feel comfortable so that your photo experience with me is fun and captures the best of you!

I work on location, be it in your home or at a designated location. I specialize in outdoor shoots since I believe that the best light is that created by nature.

Contact me and let's start creating beautiful images and have some fun!
