➞ CLEAN BOLD & BRIGHT IMAGES
Nickole Drake Photography is FAMOUS for our photographic style. We show clean images with bold and bright editing techniques to maintain the true colors, textures, and tones in every image.
WHAT YOUR FRIENDS ARE SAYING
“ Nickole made me feel like it was a natural everyday thing for me to model for pictures. She gave off a sense of comfort which made the shoot feel so effortlessly fun and made me feel so good about myself.
Not only was I trying new poses, but I also felt carefree.
I had the most fun I’ve had since quarantine started. I left the shoot with a big smile on my face and was confident the pictures were perfect...and they are!

“ What an amazing day of creating memories,”
I felt super comfortable and SO dolled up during the session! It was so much fun to feel dressed up but also in my element. The locations were breathtaking, the posing made me feel like a model, and the flow was so great and easy to keep up with! My favorite part of the session was laughing about the silly little things, like wiping my eyebrow 😉. This session is so important to me because I get to look back years from now and reminisce on my high school days, and how exciting it was to be a 2020 graduate!

WHAT IF I WANT TO WEAR MY OWN CLOTHES?
We know that every Senior is different and that it’s important that you feel like YOU on your session day. That’s why we would never force any of our clients to wear anything from our client closet if they don’t want to. You can absolutely wear your own clothes, mix ours with yours, or wear outfits made completely from our closet. The choice is 100% yours.
CAN I DO A REALLY NATURAL MAKEUP LOOK?
Heck yes you can! Our professional makeup artist can give you any look you want - from super glam to super natural. YOU get to choose how you look in your Senior pictures. We even work with you before the session day to figure out exactly what your face and hair will look like for each and every look.
Did you know that our LUXE clients get on-location makeup & hair changes during their session?! This adds a ton of variety to your images.
WHEN DO I NEED TO SCHEDULE MY SENIOR SESSION?
I schedule Senior sessions on weekdays 1-2 hours before sunset. Remember, your session will begin a total of about 3-4 hours before the sun sets depending on whether you choose the LITE or LUXE session. We allot about 2 hours for hair and makeup prior to your session.
HOW DO I BOOK A SESSION?
The best thing you can do is BOOK YOUR SESSION EARLY!
Sessions book up a few months in advance and have to turn seniors away every year because I completely sell out by the early spring of your senior year. When you decide to book your session with me, you’ll choose your date, pay the deposit to secure your spot, and answer our senior questionnaire to start the process.
WHAT TYPES OF PAYMENTS DO YOU TAKE?
We accept all major credit cards, cash, and Venmo.
A $50 non-refundable booking fee is due immediately at booking. This ensures that the date is yours only. The session fee is due 48 hours prior to your session day. Hair and makeup is paid to the stylist/artist on the session day.
We offer ALL INCLUSIVE sessions that include digital images as well as collections that include heirloom products – whatever you need, we have!
Sessions are photographed during golden hour before sunset, weekdays only!
BOOKING FEE // $50
STARTING COLLECTIONS // $200
