Pictures in the Park! -

Take your family to the Nature Discovery Center and enjoy a professional photo session in the park with Nikky LaWell!  Plus, receive a 16x20 gallery portrait after the session!

“We consider Nikky apart of our family.  She has been photographing our lives for the past 15 years.  She always seems to capture the personality and essence of both of our children.  She has an eye for detail–from lighting to framing the photograph perfectly.  Nikky is incredibly professional and great at interpreting our ideas into the perfect moment on film.   From the first picture of our daughter at the age of 3 years old to her recent senior portraits, we have never been disappointed!”
