“I am Ricci Harvey, I have a wonderful, amazing, handsome, helpful husband and a beautiful daughter. I am very blessed in my life with the family and relationships I have. I love everything about photography and I love seeing other people‘s work. (I try not to get jealous haha) I love seeing the artistic nature of things and capturing things that make me feel good and happy. I also love to help people see the beauty in themselves.“
What got you interested in photography?
I’ve always had a natural eye for what looks good. When I was a junior in high school I took a picture of my niece at her two year birthday party and it was really good. I won a school district photography contest with it, and that gave me the confidence to move forward with it. I’ve loved it ever since!
What has been your favorite picture to take and why?
Quite a few of a senior session I did with my cousin Megan recently. She’s just so photogenic and we had a great location down the street from our grandpa’s house in Monticello, UT in the wheat fields. Everything was perfect!
What’s the secret behind your etsy name?
Really, I’m just dumb. I got on specifically to buy some headbands for my daughter, then I thought, I wonder if I could sell anything on here. So I got stuck with my name. If I could do it over I would have chosen something different. The name is RicciLi which is my whole first name. (Ricky-Lee)
If you could open up a shop in your town what would you call it and what would it be like?
I would love to open a studio, it would be named after me, seeing as my photography business is already named that. Photography by Ricci Harvey. It’s easily not taken by anyone else. 🙂
What is the most challenging thing you have photographed?
Children! and even worse, big families with lots of children! Don’t get me wrong, I love photographing children, it’s actually what I do most of but it is very challenging as they don’t really know what you’re asking of them, and the mood swings and all. You have to get your shot quick, and the session has to go quick before they are just done.
What are some of your goals you hope to achieve within the next year?
My biggest goal right now is that I want to have my own studio outside of my home, in an industrial area. Within the next year, I really just want to have a solid clientele base, I am not from Colorado so no one really knows me.
What inspires you to take pictures?
Beauty! Anything that is beautiful or comical makes me want to take pictures. It makes me feel good to be around beautiful things/people. So I like to try to capture that. I love doing beauty shoots. I love helping people realize how beautiful they really are!
What is your best quality when it comes to your photography?
I would have to say composition and posing. I am not very technical but I feel like I have an eye for what looks nice, and comfortable.
If you could have one thing to help your etsy store what would it be?
I wish I had more landscape photography so that the things I did would be more in demand. I do a lot of LDS temple prints right now because I felt like that would sell the best, but I hope to get more landscape up soon.
