My name is Nancy and I am the photographer, or artist, behind the camera of NHP. I am a mom to a little girl named Ava and a wife to an encouraging man, Wes.
I have found a path or an area of focus that I consider my career choice and something I absolutely enjoy. After a few years of photographing a bit of everything, I have realized that my desired area of specialty is lifestyle family and children portraits. I love capturing emotion in a realistic but guided sort of way. Photography is not a “job” to me but “my” way of life. I am self taught so I do not have a degree in photography but what I do have is a dedicated, willing heart. I have found that with that, it is enough. This life choice also gives me an opportunity to give back in ways that I have never been able to before which is why I wholeheartedly believe it was brought to me for a reason. God knew just what I needed and I am grateful for His blessing.
Here are a few details about me so that you can get to know me better.
* a follower of Christ
* talkative... now there is a plus to this which is you will never really have to experience an awkward moment of silence, haha!! All kidding aside, I do love good conversation!
* a perfectionist
* SILLY and enjoy goofin’ off
* lazy days with my family watching movies, eating popcorn and snuggling
* music and dancing
* working on crafts with my daughter
* relaxing on the beach or building sandcastles with Ava (she loves for me to bury her legs and feet and make a mermaid tail)
* trying new restaurants either locally or on trips
* hiking with my hubs
* taking my daughter to eat at a Mexican restaurant when I want to surprise her (we are both suckers for chips, salsa and cheese dip)
* fruits, salads and ice cream (homemade banana ice cream is my all time fav)
* shopping and shoes (especially my sneakers and flats)
* getting a pedicure while reading a magazine or enjoying some quiet time
* being a mom and a wife and learning to grow in my Faith daily
I am looking forward to meeting you and becoming friends!!

Working with Nancy was a joy. She is so personable and took the time to help our 4 year old get comfortable before and during the photo session. She is a pro at setting up a scene and capturing natural expressions and interactions that really show who we are as a family. We absolutely love the portraits she created for us!

Nancy Harper is an amazing photographer! She is passionate, artistic, creative, and talented. Nancy has photographed my family on multiple occasions and I am always astounded at the end results. She creates beautiful backgrounds and captures the most natural and honest photos I have ever seen. In addition to the fabulous photos, Nancy Harper is one of the most beautiful, captivating, and joyful people I have ever had the pleasure of working with. She is extremely patient with all age groups and takes immense pride in her work. I would highly recommend Nancy to photograph any event or session you are planning. You will be truly blown away and amazed!!

Nancy is an Amazing Photographer. There are no other words to describe it. If you want someone who is passionate about their work then you will love her results. She is able to capture the moments you share but some you didn't even know where occurring. Her quality of work is superb and shows how passionate she genuinely is. She does not think of her work as a job. She truly lives and breathes what she does and loves the clients she's had the privilege of working with. She is not only able to capture the moments in front of the camera but also experience them with you behind the lens. She is a wonderful person to work with but also to be around in general. I would definitely recommend Nancy to you if you are wanting memories that will last a lifetime. I would not use anyone else and you will not regret your decision by choosing Nancy Harper Photography!

There are not enough words to accurately describe Nancy's work. She is not only an amazing photographer but genuinely an absolute sweetheart. She manages to capture not just that "moment" in the picture but also the feeling. I love how you can just be you and her photographs truly represent who each person is as an individual and you can see that through every picture. I look at her photographs as "still memories" because when you look at them, you are able to connect with the emotions that were going on at that exact moment and the memory washes over you. Her techniques are wonderful and she is amazing with children. She makes you feel so comfortable during the entire session. I would and always will recommend her to anyone and everyone!
