San Antonio Senior & Teen Portrait Photographer

You've worked too hard not  to.

seize the moment.

Thank you for visiting Nikki Ann Photography! I offer one of the most sought out High School Senior portrait experiences in San Antonio and surrounding areas. I have been nationally published and featured in many senior magazines, and I was recently ranked 10th in Modern Teen's Top 25 Photographers in the country. But my post prized professional and personal accomplishment is the ability to give you a feeling of empowerment when you step in front of my camera. We’ll have fun, make memories, and together we will also capture some of the best images you’ve ever seen of yourself! The kind of images that make a statement. Here’s to your Senior year! Capture this moment - you’ve worked too hard not to.

Welcome

My team and I believe that the photos you present to your friends and family should be a reflection of who you are: Unique. Confident. Empowered. And ready to take on the world. This is only achieved by custom designing your portrait experience which will result in images that are timeless and authentically you. If you are ready for this type of experience, let us know when you would like to create images that will “wow” everyone!

The first step in booking a session with me is to fill out the information in my contact form. Immediately after filling this out, you will receive the NAP Senior Magazine. The senior magazine contains all the information you will need to book your session including timelines, details of the session, product offerings, pricing information and more!

Session fees begin at $200 and include a 2-3 hour session, The Welcome Kit and an in-person Image Reveal. We offer several collections that include products and high resolution digital images. For collection and product offering, please contact Nikki for the NAP Senior Magazine.

After you book, your session planning will begin! You will receive a Welcome Kit that includes helpful information such as our What to Wear Guide and How to Prep for Hair/Makeup Guide. You’ll also receive a fun questionnaire that will help me get to know you and your personality. I use this information to plan out your session. For example, what setting do you want for your senior session- urban, natural or is a studio session more your style? Maybe it’s all of them!

You also will have the option of creating a Pinterest style board to list your favorite styles, poses and any ideas you’d like me to capture during your senior session. We will also begin planning your outfits and plan for the session locations. If you’re stuck on ideas for locations, I can provide a list of cool ideas as well.

This is it! Your senior session!! You and I will meet at the salon to get to know one another. I’ll also be there to ensure that your makeup and hair are done perfectly according to how YOU want it to look before we go out on location. While I’m there, I’ll also go over your outfits to make sure that everything is paired perfectly and decide which outfit we will shoot at which location! Don’t forget, every NAP senior has the option of having the hair & makeup artist on set so that you have a variety of hair styles and lip changes throughout your session.

Each session lasts 2-3 hours with as many outfit changes that time allows. You're welcome to bring your best friend so we can capture images of you both! This will make your session even more memorable and fun!

Every NAP senior session includes an Image Reveal and Product Design session a few weeks after your senior session. At this session, you will see your images for the first time. I’ll also help you design the perfect products for your home and cherished gifts for family and friends. You will see and feel everything that you’re ordering before it even arrives.

Shortly after your products arrive, we will set up a time for your product delivery! Your digital images are delivered the SAME day as your Image Reveal, so there’s no waiting around for your images!

HOW CAN I RECEIVE MORE INFORMATION ON SENIOR SESSIONS?
Great question! If you would still like more information on booking a session, please send me an email and I’d be happy to send you the Senior Magazine! This magazine is filled with information on session pricing and lays out in detail what you can expect through the whole process. My goal is to make this hassle-free for you and your family. I do this by making sure you have all the information you need for a successful portrait session up front!

HOW DO I BOOK MY SENIOR SESSION?
I take a limited amount of sessions a month. If you want to book your session, please do it as soon as possible. The fall and spring months are very popular and book the fastest. I shoot every day of the week to meet your scheduling needs. I also have availability some weekends.

WHAT DOES THE SESSION RETAINER FEE COVER?
The $200 session retainer fee is due at the time of booking. This locks in your date. The retainer is then applied to the session of your choice. The fee is non-refundable should you decide to cancel. The session fee covers the photographer's time and talent for the session. It does not include prints, products or digital files.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO SEE MY IMAGES?
I begin to edit your images soon after your photo session is complete. Your reveal and ordering session will take place within two weeks after your session. A premier slideshow will be created to showcase your stunning images at this session. 

WHAT IS THE MINIMUM ORDER REQUIREMENT?
There is a minimum order requirement of $500. The minimum order can be achieved by either purchasing individual items off the product menu or by purchasing a product collection. These collections include the most popular items and range between $600-$2200.

WHAT FORMS OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?
I accept cash (Venmo/Cash App), check, PayPal and credit card (Visa, Discover, Mastercard). 8.25% sales tax applies to all sales.

"Nikki made me feel super comfortable for the first time doing a photo shoot. She also had outfits for me to pick from, which made things feel even more special for me. Something about Nikki’s excitement makes you just want to be in front of the camera. I cannot wait to shoot with Nikki again!"

“I had the honor and pleasure of being on Nikki Ann’s team since my junior year. I was a little nervous for my first photo shoot but Nikki made me feel so comfortable in front of the camera and 5 minutes into the photo shoot those nerves went away. Throughout the photo shoot she would show me some of the photos she took and they were already absolutely stunning! I would give Nikki a 10 out of 10 stars and I would definitely recommend her for your senior pictures!"

"Shooting with Nikki was a great experience! She made me feel comfortable right away and had a lot of great ideas to obtain the perfect pictures. She took her time and made sure I was happy with my pictures as well as the locations. I would love to do pictures with Nikki again!"

“Being a spokesmodel for Nikki Ann Photography was a really surprising experience. When I first began, I was so nervous—I’m not someone who enjoys the spotlight or thought of modeling as something I was capable of, but after spending my year as a spokesmodel, my views on the experience completely changed. I had a plethora of sessions with Nikki, and none of them had a single dull moment. The experience of working with Nikki is super low maintenance, and she takes special care to make sure those she is working with are always comfortable. That being said, I found that I learned to push my own boundaries through this, and have found a newfound confidence after having worked with her. To anyone who is thinking of taking this opportunity—do it. Not only will you have crazy amounts of fun, but you’ll get to make memories that you can hold onto for the rest of your life that not many can say they have."

“In front of the camera I’ve always felt super shy, but working with Nikki as made me feel so much more comfortable! I feel like I’m in my own element and she always goes out of her way to help everyone feel beautiful and confident within themselves. I feel like it shows in the pictures!"

“Being a part of the model team was definitely a new experience that I am so grateful I took part in. All thanks to Nikki herself, for coming up with new ideas to take pictures while having fun is something I will never forget! Being a part of the model team is a must because I promise you won’t regret it!"

In addition to the session fee, there is a minimum ordering requirement of $500, which is due at the ordering session.

Hair and makeup artists can work wonders on getting your hair and face camera ready from the first image to the last. They are trained in the use of highlighting/contouring to bring out your best features. They also use high-quality products to ensure your looks last for hours!


Regular application of makeup will be faded out by the use of the reflector and fill flash that are often used in photoshoots. Going pro will ensure a glamorous, yet natural look!


Whether it’s a natural or more glamorous look, hair and makeup artists will apply makeup and style your hair according to the looks you want to achieve.


Your senior portrait session is all about YOU! Getting your hair and makeup applied by a professional will give you that added boost of confidence that will only make the day even more special and exciting!

Hello, I’m Nikki, a mother, wife, learner, educator and pursuer of all things creative. I am inspired by fashion, both the classic and the contemporary, because I believe that fashion is just another means of communicating who you truly are. I am based in San Antonio, Texas, but also work in Grand Rapids, Michigan in the summer and early fall.

My biggest wish is for you to feel your confidence grow during our time together and leave your session feeling more empowered than you did before you stepped in front of my lens. You are more than a client to me, you are the heart and soul of why I do what I do. Photography is my passion, and my purpose is to document your senior year with images you will absolutely love and be proud of.
