Hello, I'm Fran

I am a portrait photographer based in Raleigh, NC who loves to work with high school and college seniors for senior portraits. I also offer headshot sessions and corporate portraits for branding and websites.

I have been known to make people laugh out loud for those authentic smiles at portrait sessions!

More About Me

“A good photograph is one that communicates a fact, touches the heart and leaves the viewer a changed person for having seen it. It is, in a word, effective.” —Irving Penn

My goal is to capture beautiful moments that make your image special.

I want to serve you with the highest quality images.

Fran was wonderful to work with! She was thoughtful with her location choices and sought to listen to our ideas. When we were finished with my daughter's senior portrait session, she said, "Everyone needs a hype-man like Mrs. Dickenson!" I couldn't recommend Fran Dickenson Photography more!
