Hello, friends! Keeping it real over here: this is me, right now, working at 8pm. (But, I did stop working today from 3-7pm, to spend time with my family. So there. Although I can be a workaholic, tonight I’m just getting in my 8 hours – catching up on the last bits of my work day while hubby is on a client call.)

I had to hop on the Influence Conference Meet & Greet bandwagon and introduce myself! I’m Nancy Ray, a believer, wife, photographer, entrepreneur, blogger, speaker, writer. I own and run Nancy Ray Photography straight from my little town home in North Carolina, and I absolutely love what I do. Jesus is my everything. I am married to an amazing man and we have a giant dog, whose name is Winston. I believe that less is more, that hustle is very fulfilling, that life is about people (and not about stuff).

One part of the conference I’m most excited about is… speaking! I’ll be speaking on the strategy track the very last day. Actually, my weekend is going to be crazy. I shoot a wedding on Friday in NC, fly to Indianapolis Saturday morning, speak Saturday afternoon, and proceed to hug a million women who have already experienced a few days of influence-amazingness. But it’s all going to be so worth it! (I’m also very excited about sharing a bed with my sister, and just spending time with her. She’s the best. Go read her cute little Meet & Greet!)

One thing I wouldn’t leave home without? My pillow. What can I say, I really love my sleep.

I cannot even tell you how excited I am to fly to Indianapolis this weekend, for so many reasons: 1. Because I’ve never been there. 2. Because my sister will be there waiting for me. 3. Because there are a TON of incredible women that will be in one place. 4. Sashes Market. Enough said. (Please don’t buy all the things before I get there. K thanks.) 5. To worship Jesus and learn more about Him through my sweet sisters. Can’t wait to meet all of you!

I. am. pumped. See you at Influence!

Nancy! I first heard you and Will at MTH this spring and was just beside myself with excitement when I saw you were speaking at Influence! You were such an encouragement to this creative.

Ahh! So glad you get to come to the Hoosierland this weekend! Praying for safe travels and energy! See you Saturday!

I was sitting here reading bios for the Influence speakers and was drawn into your site! I’m a fellow photographer (in Indy area) and can totally relate to your whirlwind weekend coming up! Praying God will give you the energy and focus you need. Hoping to meet you this weekend, too! :)

So sweet to “meet” you! Hope to meet you in person this weekend at Influence–it’ll be my first time, too!

Nancy! You are a precious gem. I’ve been reading your blog for a few years now, and just love listening to you share your heart and letting God using it to speak to me. Side note question… WHERE is your watch from? That is so awesome! I’ve been on the hunt for a wrap bracelet the past few months and that one is just so good. I have tiny wrists so trying to find one that’s skinny and not overwhelming has been a bit of a battle 😉 Best of luck this weekend (though I know you’ll do great, and God will use you)!! Sending prayers your way!

Hi Brittany! Thank you for your sweet words. My watch is a La Mer watch, and I love it! :

We are so glad you are here!
