I’m Nicole Harnois (pronounced HARR-nwah) and I am the owner of Nicole Harnois Photography based out of Northeast Iowa. I specialize in photographing authentic and candid family, newborn, children, and branding photography.

About Me

I'm married to my high school sweetheart (Andrew) and we have three beautiful kids together. I started my business in 2014 when my oldest was only 6 months old.

Fun Fact: I was a licensed hairstylist for years before starting my photography business.

About us

Andrew is not only my partner and soulmate but is also the self proclaimed 'general secretary' for NHP. We are really great at balancing our strength and weaknesses and make a great team -- if I do say so myself.

There are some people who stand out in their profession because it’s clear they have a natural gift for what they do. Nicole is one of them. Her creative eye for poses are natural, flattering, and fun, her easy-going attitude makes her clients feel comfortable, and her editing skills are top-notch. She’s taken our family photos for three years and every time I get photos back, I’m amazed at the ways she was able to beautifully capture the story of our family. Nicole is one of the best in the business.

The Basu Martens Family

Nicole and Andrew are amazing! They worked with my extended family and were so patient, efficient, kind and accommodating.

The paulik Family

We have worked with Nicole since before my son was born 4 years ago. This morning my son and I were going back through his baby book where I have stored his milestones that Nicole has captured over the years. I’ve never met another photographer who is able to capture the bond between a family in a photograph like Nicole has over and over again. If you are looking for a photographer who truly loves what she does and goes out of her way to take genuine and natural images she is your girl.
