Harding began her career in photographic art in the time when film was the standard technology. In her freshman year of college, she was asked to accompany a friend on a class photography assignment. The experience was transformative, and soon she acquired a camera of her own. Harding began studying photography, teaching herself how to use the camera and the darkroom (often set up in the bathrooms of her college apartments}. Harding married and raised three children.
Once the children had left the home, Harding attended seminars and workshops and gained knowledge in the digital era. Later, through her mentor,Tony Sweet, helped her to focus her creativity with intent, to powerful, compelling images. After making her work public in 2014 through her website, she signed with a gallery, and was included on statewide "Best Of" lists. Her work hangs in both public and private collections across the country.
When not traveling for photoshoots, Harding resides in Little Rock, AR.
