About me

Hey! My name is Heather Harpole and I am a lifestyle photographer and vlogger. I started my YouTube channel, Heather Elise Harpole going into my freshman year of high school and I have been using a camera ever since. I originally just shot content for my personal accounts, but after shooting pictures for my friends, I decided Summer 2020 to start doing full-time photography. I shoot photos of anything from lifestyle + fashion Instagram posts to senior/family portraits. I also have experience with modeling + acting headshots. I am originally from Little Rock, Arkansas. I am majoring in Digital Marketing at The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM) in downtown Los Angeles. I am obsessed with anything related to the creative world and I would love for you to send me a message to collaborate on the “Contact” tab or DM @heatherharpolephotography on Instagram. Bring any ideas you have tand I guarantee a one of a kind shoot!
