Hi Guys! I'm Mindy and I am the owner and one of the photographers at MHP. I am so glad that you dropped by our Senior web site! Just so we can get to know each other a bit before your senior portraits I thought that I would tell you a little bit about myself. Like many of you, I started with photography back in high school with photojournalism. Thanks to Mrs. Waters, my photography and yearbook teacher for the inspiration! I didn't know back then that I would eventually take on photography as a career. For many years, I was a webmaster (yes, they called us webmasters back then!) for Compaq, which eventually became Hewlett Packard. It wasn't till after I began having kiddos of my own that my love of photography was rekindled and that's where Mindy Harmon Photography began over ten years ago. I believe whatever your career field, that education is the foundation to being successful and I continue to this day to educate myself, grow, teach others, collaborate with others and continuously expand my knowledge in this fabulous field.
That was my career journey in a quick nutshell, so how about things that are a little more personal..... I'm a wife to a fantastic man that continuously encourages me in everything I do and inspires me with his own work ethic. I'm a mom to 3 boys.....16, 14 and 12....they are the reason I live! I also live for shopping.....can that be a hobby? Or, maybe a sport? I'm good at it....it should be. I love fashion and interior design. I love art. I'm inspired by the Old Masters of the Renaissance the most. I love traveling. I'm clumsy. You'll probably see me trip at least once or twice during our photo shoot! Just giggle with me when it happens and pretend you didn't see it.....or, point and laugh hysterically....I'm ok with that too....I have boys, I understand.
Professional info. Check. Personal info. Check. What else? Oh! This part is important to me. I live my life and run my business with 4 core values in mind...
Family (family always comes first)
Gratitude (thankfulness for others and absolutely everything around me)
Trust (makes sure that my actions allow others to trust me wholeheartedly)
Philanthropy (always give back through service and self)
Well, that's me in a quick nutshell! I hope that we get a chance to meet and design some AMAZING and FABULOUS senior portraits for you this year! I am looking forward to celebrating this time in your life with you! Take this moment in your life and truly remember it.....your pursuit of life truly begins right now!
One of the fabulous things about MHP is that we are located in the same building as Lavish Salon and Blow Dry Bar! They are a full service salon offering everything from cuts and color to Balayage highlights and Brazilian Smoothing treatments. They are AMAZING! And, how fantastic is it that they are part of our Artistry Team?!?!?
This means that we have an entire team to help you get ready for your big day! First, freshen up that cut or color at least a week prior to your session. Then, on the day of your photoshoot, our makeup artist and hair artists will take care of all of the details to polish your look before you get started!
Every detail of your experience at MHP will be handled seamlessly by our amazing Artistry Team. We provide fabulous portraits of course....you can see that on the web site. What you can't see from here is the team we have working behind the scenes!
Our Artistry Team members range from retouchers that have been trained by top industry experts from around the world......to a sales team that has a love and eye for fashion and interior design....to community liasons that make sure we are finding ways to always give back......to friendly and helpful office staff that have a real love for the artwork that we produce here. The synergy of our Artistry Team not only makes this an amazing place to work, but also a fabulous place that you will want to do business with year after year.
All of the members of our Artistry Team are here because they believe in those same core values that Mindy described above.
While here for your design appointment to kick off your senior portrait session, if you don't get to shake hands with each and every team member, keep your eyes open.....you might see them out and about at one of the many charity events that we participate in throughout the year!
