About Nelly Hernandez Photography

Who is Nelly?

Thank you for visiting my page. My name is Marianela, but everyone knows me as Nelly. I am originally from Brownsville, TX and currently located in Central Arkansas. I have one very funny husband and three goofy and very smart kids. I stay busy as they always keep me on my toes.  I love chocolate and could snack on appetizers all day long. The Notebook and The Hangover are some of my favorite movies. I know, complete ends of the spectrum. But, that’s me – I love romance, horror and  comedy, and everything in between. And that’s what I want to document for you: Your life, your personality…wherever you fall in the spectrum. I’d love to hear from you!

Family/Children/Senior Portrait Sessions

I’m passionate about all areas of photography. My style is relaxed and fun. I strive to create fresh and natural portraits each time I am behind the camera.

Intimate Xpressions/Boudoir

NHP's experiences aren't about the woman you think the world wants you to be, the woman you used to be, the woman you wish you could be...they are about the woman you are, because she is beautiful and so very deserving of love.   One of the biggest misconceptions about boudoir is that you have to have the *perfect* body, the perfect financial situation, the perfect significant other to gift images to, and be able to look at yourself in the mirror and see zero flaws.  ...WRONG. I've never *ever* photographed a client who saw zero flaws in the mirror. Boudoir is about showing up, allowing yourself to be open and vulnerable to this incredibly intimate experience, and owning who you are. If you wait until the day you think you are perfect, you are going to wait the rest of your life and this opportunity will pass you by.   Your imperfections are welcome here, your brokeness is welcome here, your quirks are welcome here, your fear/doubt/timidness is welcome here. I will meet you where you are, and together we will create art that reminds you that no matter where you are in your journey--you are worthy, beautiful, and capable of facing your life head on.
