When you book Karen Nicole Photography for your Senior portraits, you're booking a team of educated professionals that are dedicated to making your high school senior photo shoot one of the best experiences of your entire senior year! Past KNP Seniors tell me that they had so much fun on their shoot and love their pictures so much that they wish they could do it all over again!
THAT'S EXACTLY WHY I LOVE MY JOB!
I look forward to every single shoot because when you look your best and are having fun, you'll feel great and you'll enjoy the experience of making fantastic portraits!
A FEW DETAILS TO CONSIDER WHEN CHOOSING YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER:
Make sure that you absolutely love the work they're showing on their website, social media and the reviews of other clients. It seems so obvious, but many people overlook this one simple thing.
Professional makeup is definitely encouraged but isn't 'required' at KNP... so if you prefer my makeup artist to 'work her magic', then we're happy to provide that service, but if you don't want makeup, that's ok too! Should you choose to have your makeup done by my artist, rest assured that it will only enhance the beauty that's already there because the last thing we want is for your friends and family to say they don't recognize you in the photos! The sole purpose behind Senior portraits is to be yourself!
When done correctly, professional makeup is a fantastic way to even out skin tones, cover blemishes, get your face camera-ready, and make you feel pampered (and my professional makeup artists are trained to do just that!).... however, if it's done by someone that's only worried about the latest trends found on Youtube, you can be assured that it won't last the test of time. (Yep.. over-contouring, super shiny highlights, big pouty lips and thick foundation will likely fade away like the blue eye shadow of the 80's... don't get caught up in trendy fads!)
Pinterest is great for gathering ideas for your session, but be careful not to get carried away! Again, the purpose behind having Senior portraits made is to be yourself and show off who you are right now... that's why I love hearing all about the things you're into! Whether it's music, sports, academics, hobbies, your vehicle, pet(s), or whatever floats your boat- I make sure to feature them in a way that compliments you!
Prints, Products & Digitals:
Because photography is my full-time profession and I've gone to great lengths to be educated in the craft, KNP is a full-service custom photography studio. This means I choose to offer tangible, heirloom portrait products to my clients. I love providing a fun, customized photo shoot experience, but I also take pride in offering beautiful portrait products that you'll be proud to display in your home or office, as well as to give to friends and family. Digital portraits are also available because they're fun to share online and sometimes you only need a few printed or to send for specific reasons. Because of failing and changing technology (remember floppy disks, cassettes and cd's?), a professional photographer will provide ways for you to display and enjoy your portraits for many years to come... this isn't possible if they're only stored on a thumb drive or in an online gallery.
Prints and products start at $29. Digitals start at $75. Print, product and digital packages start at $599. There are no minimum order requirements.

Session reservation fees range from a simple NECESSITY to the absolutely UNBELIEVABLE!! No matter what you're looking for in a Senior session, there's one waiting just for you!
NECESSITY: $75 Are you looking for something short 'n sweet?! Sometimes all that’s needed are a few pictures for invitations, yearbook, a wall portrait, family give-a-ways, etc.. so if that’s what you're looking for, let’s get to it!
Up to 30 minutes of shooting time In studio or studio back-lot only Up to 2 outfits In person order appointment a couple of weeks after the session Due to the custom nature of each session, it's impossible to tell how many images you will see at your appointment
BASIC: $150 Some Seniors are only having their portraits done because Mom wants them to, but still want to show off their personality... With the Basic session, we'll make beautiful images that your family will cherish for years to come and you'll definitely have fun doing it!
Up to 90 minutes of shooting time In studio, studio back-lot, or 1 off-site location Up to 3 outfits In person order appointment a couple of weeks after the session Due to the custom nature of each session, it's impossible to tell how many images you will see at your appointment
SIGNATURE: $300 (The most popular session!) In this session, we get to have lots of fun showing off who you are... after all, it's about your style and your story! I believe that Senior portraits should be a reflection of the person in them, and in the SIGNATURE session, we’ll have plenty of time to incorporate the things that make YOU unique: sports, music, hobbies, vehicles, fashion, pets, whatever floats your boat! You can even bring your best friend to jump into a few shots with you!
The SIGNATURE session can be anything we make it... to tell the story of YOU! Parents always love this session because they get to see you "being you", not just posing and smiling for the camera! So what's your 'thing'... what makes you, YOU?? The possibilities are endless and there's plenty of time for a lot of creativity, so let's have fun and create a memory you'll never forget!
For girls, my professional makeup artist will even out skin tones, disguise blemishes and get your face camera-ready... plus she'll stay on set for changes and touchups! Something we're very careful about here at KNP is that our girls look like themselves in their portraits. I want you AND your friends & family to LOVE your portraits because they're seeing the REAL you, so she'll make sure the makeup enhances your natural beauty and is perfect for the mood we're going for all at the same time!
