Capturing the Journey

Nancy Kieffer Photography

About me

I have always had an affinity for the great outdoors, animals and photography.  I always looked at Ansel Adams work with a longing to see those places and experience the sense of wonder and majesty that God graced us with.  As I grow older, I wish to capture those images to help foster belonging and environmental justice.   My images capture the beauty I see as I take my journey in life.

My journey is not always alone.  I have taken my journey in life with some wonderful dogs.  They each have had their own personalities from comforter to clown  and my current wild child.

I always wanted to capture the personalities of each and then the bonds between us.  I was taking selfies with my dog's long before you heard the word.  I would set up my camera on the timer and jump in.

Our pets are gone too soon and they each have their own personality that shines.   I would love to help you capture the uniqueness of your pet and the bonds that you share through your journey together.

FINE ART/GALLERIES

My own journey via my photography includes places that I love to enjoy visiting to experience nature as well as animals and their humans.  My newest work takes the images beyond the photographic and transforms the image into a hand rendered painting.

Nancy was very Patient.

Nancy came to my home to photograph my cat Tinkerbelle.  This was not an easy task as cats don't really respond well to commands! Nancy was very patient. She played with Tinkerbelle to get different looks/poses. She had equipment to control/enhance lighting and an excellent camera.  She took so many wonderful shots that I had a hard time choosing what to pick.

Prompt and professional.

For starters, this was the first time I've ever had my pictures taken by a professional photographer.  She was prompt and professional and obviously knew what she was doing and was familiar with angles and lighting as well as what poses would look best. Another huge bonus is that her prices are reasonable.  I will definitely be utilizing her services the next time I need a professional photographer. thank you Nancy!
