We had the good fortune of connecting with Violette Harris and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Violette, we’d love to hear more about your end-goal, professionally.
My end goal is generational wealth and to sit back and enjoy life. Professionally by the end of my career, I want to be teaching other upcoming photographers and creators what I’ve learned over the years.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
What sets me apart from others would be my creativity. All of my photo sessions are well thought out. My ideas are always heartfelt. I’m most proud of my growth. The quality over the pass 3 years has improved tremendously. I got to where I’m at today just by working hard and learning from my mistakes. It was no where near easy. I am still learning day by day. I overcame all of my challenges by trying it again. I’m a firm believer that everything gets better with time. The biggest lesson that I learned along the way was keep going. Don’t let one mistake stop you. Nobody’s perfect. You’re going to make mistakes. Mistakes are only learning experiences. I want the world to know that I started Harris Heartfelt Photos from the bottom. No handout;. just a girl from a small town with a big dream.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would like to shoutout to my High School Physical Science teacher, Amy Boynton for seeing the potential that I didn’t see in myself. She never gave up on me and she did everything possible to make sure that I was successful.
