Celebrating 10 Years in Business!

Tuesday, November 7th, 2017

This time, ten years ago, I quietly launched my photography business here in Charlotte, NC. I named it Nanine Hartzenbusch Photography ~ Documentary Family Portraiture. Ten years later, I continue to build upon what I started: creating custom story-telling portraits of your beautiful families, siblings, infants, toddlers, seniors, and extended family gatherings.  I’ve designed your stellar holiday cards, graduation party invitations and baby announcements. I’ve partnered with non-profits to donate to silent auction fundraisers and held a day of mini-sessions at the McGill Rose Garden to benefit local charities. I’ve taught workshops and college courses and I’ve traveled to the DC area to work with a great group of clients. For all this, I am grateful.

Prior to starting my photography business, I worked as a staff photojournalist and editor at newspapers and wire services. When I launched my business, I  turned my lens in a new direction, using my photojournalistic influences on portrait photography clients. I also enjoy working with editorial, small business, non-profit and commercial clients to tell their stories with images.

I look forward to the next ten years with YOU! Sharing your precious moments, telling your stories. Thank you for thinking of Nanine Hartzenbusch Photography!
