    Senior Photos... I was told she was a master with the camera and she proved it so! We had fun and she took so many different shots, it's SO worth getting them done professionally.

    Working with Nancy is simply incredible. She has a great eye for color and composition and always brings her best to any setting. I have had the privilege of knowing and working with her since 2012 and truly believe, she is the best in her industry! Nancy, you will always remain my “go to” for personal photography!  Candace.

    "I would like to take this opportunity to share my experience with Nancy. Just writing this is emotional.  I think it’s important for people to know what an outstanding photographer she is on all counts. Not only does Nancy's talent shine through, but her kindness, giving straight from the heart with wanting nothing in return, professionalism, humor, and heart of gold are rare to find. When we initially thought to retain Nancy’s services, little did we know how little time my husband would be with us. He had 2 weeks. Being familiar with cancer,  Nancy very delicately suggested to me that the time for the photos was at hand.  I will forever be grateful to her for the loving way in which she encouraged us to take pictures as soon as possible.  She made time in her busy schedule right away. As heartbreaking as the time was, she made the photo shoot fun, happy, and full of LIFE, LOVE, and JOY. Had it not been for her kindness, I would not have the exquisite photos of our family that we cherish each day. Nancy’s portraiture has captured so clearly and beautifully with love. The love my late husband had for me, for our daughter, and baby son. I am eternally grateful. THANK YOU, NANCY"  Katherine   Legacy Images

    Working with Nancy Steele was a great experience!
    Nancy has a gift of drawing out a person's unique personality and capturing it on film.
    I was so thrilled with the pictures she captured of my family.
    We also had Nancy take our daughter's senior pictures.  Nancy went above and beyond in the planning process, really honoring the vision our daughter had for a momentous chapter in her life. Nancy exceeded our expectations and we will treasure the pictures she took for years to come.

    Family portraits! The event that took us only 10 years to do after the first go around. Lets just say the first go around with a different photographer, didn’t go so smoothly. Lots of time, adjustments and uncomfortableness.   I finally took the plunge and was so disappointed!!!  Why did I take so long to do another family portrait? Nancy Steele made it so easy for our entire family. Her expertise from what to wear and best time of day to take the photos was spot on. And it was the hottest day of the year! Nancy knew her stuff! Quick decisions on where to stand, presenting our best sides and controlling our spunky doodle was second nature to her. The kids had so much fun, they wanted their own photo shoot! We could not be happier with the entire experience. Nancy not only delivered with her photography skills, but her business skills were very professional as well. She got back to me in a timely matter with proofs and was very patient with me.  Choosing from all her great photos was not an easy task. As a family, we would highly recommend Nancy Steele Photography.
  • Nancy Steele
    I have had the pleasure of knowing Nancy for about 10 years now after the first time she did a family photo session for us. Over the years, Nancy has photographed our family many times, she did senior pictures for our three kids and additionally both my daughters were models for her for various photo shoots. Nancy is very involved in the community and high school with various fundraisers and her support of other local small businesses. Nancy is an amazing photographer but it’s not just her excellent photography skills - she is such a fun and enjoyable person to be around that people just feel comfortable in front of the camera. She captures their personalities and facial expressions so beautifully.  She has an amazing eye and sees light and shadows that create gorgeous portraits.  I highly recommend Nancy for family and senior portraits.
  • Karin S.
    Over the past few years Nancy has done senior portraits for our sons, as well as family portraits... including our two active pups.
    Her friendly and calm demeanor made each session really enjoyable.
    She has an incredible attention to detail and her artistic talents are portrayed through her work.
    We have been thrilled with all of our photos. In addition to her beautiful photography, Nancy also supports her community by sharing her time and talents.
    Kudos!
  • Andrea B.
    Nancy is AMAZING!! She was everything we could have hoped for and more! My experience with most photographers and children is spending lots of time trying to pose the children and get them into the "perfect" posed picture. Not with Nancy, she took my two year old girl and let her shine! Let her be herself, run and play and caught her as her in action. The pictures are not merely pictures, but memories, emotion, love and happiness. They capture who my daughter is not just a mere picture to look at. They tell a story. I've had so many comments on a very special picture she took of my daughter and I of how people can feel how much I love her. That's what I wanted and I got it with Nancy. I wouldn't hesitate to work with PTP in the future! Our morning with Nancy will be a day and a moment we won't forget. During the many hard and heartbreaking moments that we endured with cancer, Nancy gave us a gift of love, joy and memories that will endure for many years! Thank you Nancy!
  • Jen
    We had the privilege of having Nancy take our family pictures late last year. Our son had been diagnosed with cancer a little over a year prior and not knowing what the future held, we wanted to have a family picture captured. Nancy did an outstanding job at capturing those special moments of us and our little ones. What I was so impressed with was that we did them outside, with wardrobe change, and she kept it quick and simple and captured the most amazing pictures I have ever seen. She does outstanding work, has such a loving and caring heart, she is the complete package.
  • Ashlie
    Nancy did an amazing job of capturing a moment in time of our family. Thank you for giving us these memories to cherish for a lifetime. Her talent and sheer love of photography shows in each photo.
  • Michelle V.
    The session was really fun, loved all the ideas for locations, even when i didn't have any. She listened to what I wanted, even though I didn't know what I wanted. Nancy knows not only what she's doing, especially how to use the light. I loved how they were so carefree. Her friendliness and humor during the session made me look very comfortable and happy LOVED that! She is a professional all the way!
  • Mary Jo V.
    LOVE.LOVE.LOVE Michelle's pic's! Loved the natural feel, they don't look posed, but just who she is!
  • Emily S.
    My session was so much fun and the pictures came out great!
  • Caty B.
    Neither of my sons wanted to have senior pictures OR to be photographed, so Nancy had a challenge. We came out with AMAZING shots of both and they both ENJOYED it! And she supported our school.
  • Jana D.
    Four children........four senior photo sessions with the awesome Nancy Steele. There is a reason we kept coming back - personal connection with kids, attention to detail, professional photos at a reasonable price. Picture This Photography provides a unique, quality photo session for any occasion
  • Gayle M.
    Best Senior Pics I have seen . I compared them to my daughter's friends' Senior Pictures. Nancy wins hands down!
  • Diane B.
    To start, my son was NOT thrilled to have to get senior pictures.. BUT, "it was easy and quick, and they all looked GOOD!" I loved the vibe I got from Nancy and so many recommendations to use her. She captured who he is, she got my son comfortable enough to catch many great smiles. I so highly recommend Nancy for senior pictures she is professional, skilled, great with the kids and manages to get beautiful shots! It was so well worth the money to have this memory. She took care of all our needs with such a busy senior year. We will see you again ! 🙂
  • Trisha G.
    Nancy has the gift of making a person feel relaxed and at ease in any setting. She made our family fee like we were the most important part of her day. We will not go anywhere else!
  • Pam P.
    The images reflect just what our senior and family is... and Nancy captured the essence of our senior son.
  • Nootsie & Emily M.
    Nancy's photography is so natural. I loved how I got to choose and how willing she is to listen and try new and different things. The session was Fabulous and she took what could have been very stressful and made it easy, fun, and enjoyable, the time flew by. Wouldn't have changed a thing, it was perfect!
  • Cheryl A.
    Nancy is an amazing artist and photographer. She photographed my daughter for her senior pictures. She captured my daughters true personality and made it so much fun for her. She is a professional and the experience was so easy…from the photo shoot, to the viewing of pictures (so many choices) to the creative ideas of how to display those photo’s. Anyone can shoot a camera, it takes a professional, like Nancy, to create a beautiful artistically designed picture that brings out the best of her subject.
  • D.B.
    Breathtaking images, you captured my daughter and brought tears to our eyes. I would recommend Nancy all the way, fun and easy to work with. She gives great clothing advice for our family portraits and the Christmas cards she made were so beautiful. The portraits are so unique and the quality of the printed images are top of the line, she makes sure you will love them.. and she has custom framing!"
  • Paulanna
    Nancy's positive energy had my son wanting to pose for hours!! She was so great to work with and her keen eye really made for beautiful shots. We will definitely be a repeat customer.
  • Michelle N.
    Not only is Nancy an amazing photographer, she gives back to her community and schools , she is the ultimate professional. She is well known in the Portland area for her photography be it, graduation, weddings, special occasions, families and much more! Thank you for the beautiful pictures you took of my children and my family.... They are memories of for a lifetime.
  • Linda
    Nancy is a neighbor of mine and supporter of the West Linn schools. She did a beautiful job of capturing both my kids in their senior portraits and was creative, flexible and easy to work with. We never felt rushed or uncomfortable. Sessions go quickly and she listens to your suggestions but she also tried some ideas that I never would have thought of! She also did a great family portrait a few years ago in our back yard and I know we will call PTP when we are ready to do an updated family photograph. Thanks, Nancy
  • Teri E.
    I Would like to thank Nancy for her very talented photography skills! Our son's senior pictures will be cherished forever! She is committed to every minor detail and professionally edits each and every picture while capturing the essence of one's personality. Her communication is outstanding and the cute touches in delivering the finished product go beyond anything I have experienced( keepsake picture on tin for wallet sized pictures, disc with your favorite shots for future printing of photos, family photo shoot included and more!). You are AWESOME!!!
  • The Wilks
    I have had the privilege of working with Nancy Steele several times and I would definitely recommend her to anyone. Nancy is fun, creative, energetic and extremely talented. She is able to truly capture people’s personalities, because she has a way of making you feel comfortable in front of the camera and she makes sure you’re having fun with it! She photographed my wedding and my husband and I were so impressed with the level of detail she was able to capture – not only in the big moments, but in the small moments that are so precious to have pictures of. She worked her magic behind the lens and in the editing process, transforming our wedding day into hundreds of photos that allow us to live it over and over again. She has also photographed my sister’s wedding, family pictures and college housemate pictures, all of which were fantastic. Thank you, Nancy for capturing all of these moments so well!
