My name is Fran

Life is all about people, moments & emotions that we want to hold on to..

Senior year is so exciting and busy, that it is sometimes hard to slow down and capture the moment. I want to make sure you have these images to remember this time in your life. Through my one on one mentoring sessions, I can show you how to document the people, moments and emotions that your family will love.

Your headshot is sometimes the first thing employers see, so make sure you have a fresh image of yourself to share. These days, you need an updated corporate portrait for your website or branding materials. I can help you create an image that shows a little of your personality in a unique and professional image.

Love Notes From My Clients

We absolutely love Fran Dickenson Photography! We had a fabulous photo shoot! She's very experienced and very easy to work with. We did the senior photo+family last year for our son and family and then just Senior this year/recently for my daughter and love the results! I absolutely recommend Fran Dickenson Photography to anyone looking for a photographer! Fran is GREAT!

Your session is all about you. Be your true self. Show your fun, quirky personality. Do the things that make you happy. Laugh loudly. Enjoy yourself.

I'll be there to capture it all and help you save these beautiful memories for a lifetime.
