Méla Nichols is a 24 year old stand-up comic, actress and writer living in New York City. She's currently appearing on the ShowTime series “I can't believe I'm still single.” She enjoys all things off-beat and vehemently marches against the grain on a daily basis.

That’s the bio that appears on my Flicker page featuring all of the portraits-to-date that I’ve shot of this amazing new talent.

I met Méla for the very first time the very same day I shot her portraits. It can be tough to shoot a portrait of someone you don’t know or never have met. Méla's laid-back attitude and awesome nature made the session feel like I 've known her forever.
