ABOUT THE SPEAKER
Meggan Harper has specialized in photographing newborns since the day her business opened. She has a genuine love for documenting babies within their first days of life and considers it the highest honor for parents to allow her to do so. Her favorite quote is “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” ― Confucius. This is her mantra in the workplace. Meggan has a strong belief that if you do what you love, you will naturally excel at it, be more creative everyday, and find a way to make money doing so.

Meggan has mentored several photographers, local or not, with an open and honest approach. She keeps no secrets and feels that the more she helps fellow photographers, the more she raises up the entire industry. She does not worry about “training her competition” because she feels that there is an abundance of work out there for all of us. Aside from the world of newborn photography, Meggan is a mother to 4 boys, and has one baby boy on the way. She’s no stranger to newborns, that’s for sure!
