Oh Baby! Sweet Baby. I had a wonderful time photographing my friend’s granddaughter, now 8 months old. She’s full of fun expressions, sitting up, smiling, growing teeth and so huggable. Her parents were visiting so Clemson’s waterfront Abernathy Park gave us the perfect setting for a family portrait, baby portraits and photos with grandmas! It’s a Carolina summer, so it was hot, but the pavilion gave us nice shade and soft light for flattering portraiture. Nanine Hartzenbusch Photography is in full swing, booked up with extended family portraits, grandchild portraits, babies and all our loved ones. Late summer and early Fall are great times to book your family or child portraits, creating memories to keep and share, for your walls or your special holiday greeting card. Contact Nanine at email@example.com to book your summer or fall portrait!
Happy Fall! Visiting grandchildren and their families make for great moments you’ll want to capture in portraits. This sweet family recently gathered from several states away at the lake. After they selected their coordinated clothing colors, we chose our walking path along the lake as a great spot for portraits. Pre-planning a family portrait to coordinate clothing, select a location and consider various family groupings is so important. That way, we are off and running on portrait day, to just focus on getting the best portraits of your family, as the details have already been taken care of. Don’t miss an opportunity to be in photographs with your sweet grandchildren, and also of you, as a couple. Often we focus on our children and grandchildren and forget to be in pictures. Please reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to book your family portrait. I still have some availability through 2022 and the holiday season. Thank you!
Ch-ch-ch-changes happening here at Nanine Hartzenbusch Photography! First, we moved from Charlotte, NC to the shores of Lake Keowee near Clemson and Seneca, SC in the spring. It is beautiful here, and we love living on the lake near the mountains with so many outdoor places to explore. With the move came a major website update ~ to reflect recent work, a more intuitive design, and helpful information about our portrait sessions and what to expect. Please visit the website and let me know your thoughts in the comments below. I’ll be adding a portrait display gallery – to show you how your family portraits can be displayed ~ on your walls, in fine art albums or image boxes. And for my repeat clients I’ll be adding a “Then and Now” gallery ~ I’ve enjoyed seeing your children grow up, in portraits!
So… what does this mean to you? I am available for portrait sessions in more areas now! I am excited to work with new clients in the Upstate SC areas of Lake Keowee, Lake Hartwell and Clemson, Seneca, Anderson and Greenville. I will be returning to Charlotte about once a month (stay tuned for my visit dates to book your portraits) and I venture up to the DC metro area several times a year to work with my clients there. If you are visiting this area, I’ve discovered lovely locations for portraits – on the lake, botanical gardens, flower farms and stunning downtown Greenville. Please follow this blog and sign up for my monthly newsletter to receive news about upcoming portrait sessions. I look forward to working with y’all!
P.S. I have been having so much fun exploring the area with my camera. Stay tuned for a post on the lake area’s beauty

The leaves are beginning to turn and there is a chill in the air. Finally! We are keeping busy at Nanine Hartzenbusch Photography photographing families, seniors, little ones and business portraits. In the next few weeks, I’ll be writing about each of these portrait sessions and showing you some fun images and how they can be used.
Think about installing a family portrait wall! Or have me design a custom holiday card to send to your cherished friends and family. Perhaps you have a graduation senior ~ Let me capture some spectacular images now, before they head off, and create a custom graduation announcement/party invitation as well.
Maybe you are expecting a child. Let me photograph your beautiful maternity portraits and follow up with newborn, six month and one year portraits. 25+ years of experience and counting. Custom portrait photography is just that – Custom to YOU – to your surroundings, to your experiences. Each day brings new hope, new opportunities. There is no time like the present to book your portrait session.
Please give me a call at 704.909.9963 or drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are getting busy as the season unfolds, but I have session times available during the weekdays and on some select weekends. I hope to hear from you soon!
I was delighted to photograph sweet baby M last week and her parents and older brother! We had a great time photographing indoors, outdoors, in color, and my favorite – b&w- to capture her preciousness on day seven of her life. What a privilege it was to spend time with this beautiful family. I was so honored to photograph these moments. And without further ado, here are my favorite images from our afternoon portrait session ~
