Fun with Grandchildren ~ Lake Keowee

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 if you’d like to book your family portrait. I still have some availability through 2022 and the holiday season. Thank you!

Giving Thanks – Family Portrait Clients

In this season of gratitude, I am especially thankful for my family portrait clients. This past summer I was honored to photograph several family gatherings at Lake Keowee. Summer is a wonderful time at the lake, and there’s no better time to capture those memories with your loved ones. Children grow up, families evolve and moments are fleeting. Your family portraits displayed on your  walls or in fine art albums will serve to hold those memories of summer visits. Thank you for the opportunity to photograph your families! I have a few portrait sessions remaining for the holiday season, please contact me at if you’d like to schedule your family portrait. Thank you!




Celebrating Family – Lake Keowee Portrait Session

Life is better at the Lake! I had a wonderful time photographing this sweet family (and their pup!) on Lake Keowee. Mom and Dad were excited to have their sons and girlfriends visit for a vacation and wanted to hire a professional portrait photographer to capture their moments together by their new home. (Thank you for thinking of me for this special portrait session!) The late afternoon light was gorgeous, and their smiles made the portraits so special. The lake and surrounding areas provide a perfect backdrop for your portraits of your family gatherings. Nanine Hartzenbusch Photography is now booking August and September portrait sessions. Contact me at to book your portrait session! And here are our favorite shots from our portrait session.
