Hi There! | ABOUT NANCY - Nancy Lempesis

I left my desk job to pursue my calling as a full-time photographer in 2016. Images have always been important to me, but when my daughter was born and I began documenting her life through photographs, I made a career-altering realization:


Life is short and
the days + months + years are fleeting.

Images that document your life's story are the most important family heirlooms
you can pass down. These images
become your legacy.

my world...my heart...my life's greatest milestones...my story.

everyone has their own story to tell. let me tell yours through simple, timeless imagery.

I live, work and play on Isle of Palms, a barrier island  in Charleston, SC with my husband, daughter and three (yes three) dogs.

I stepped into my first dark room 18 years ago and have been chasing light and documenting love and beauty ever since.

my photographs are:


natural-light driven




When I am not shooting you can find me somewhere on the island, drinking coffee by the gallon and chasing Gracie, the dogs, and sometimes my husband who is known by most as #petethemom. If I'm not outside, I am probably  selling, buying or rearranging furniture in our house. I have a problem, but the first step is to admit it, right?  We also own a cozy vacation cottage down the street and we love giving visitors a taste of what it's like to live like a local in our little paradise. Our life is constant, hilarious chaos and we wouldn't have it any other way.
