Nancy Morrison of Morrison Photography is Iridis’ preferred photography partner because her photos are amazing and she is a total darling to boot. She is an award winning photographer, with over 15 years experience. She is known for her beautiful portraiture in corporate and commercial work, including outstanding personal branding headshots, as well as family and pregnancy photo shoots. Nancy’s warmth and authenticity makes her the perfect photographer for Iridis, as Peta-Gai and Nancy are two peas in a pod, and create photographic magic when working as a team. Nancy captures the heart, soul and essence of her clients in her amazing images.
