Welcome to

April turned into a very fun month for me! It began not-so-fun as John’s boss had a house fire. The building was a total loss, but there was a lot that was spared inside that she was able to keep, like her wedding photos and older keepsakes. I had some magical azalea princess sessions, and […]

March wasn’t super busy here in Heather-land. I had one of my macro pieces in the Lyndon House show for this year. I went to go see it on the wall. It’s still pretty surreal to see my photography hung in an art gallery. I also planted a bunch of bulbs and finished up the […]

February was definitely slower for me this year. I have a lot of things going on in the background but it’s of course not very warm for pictures and nothing is blooming. All my pre-work for the year is done in January and February, so that’s mostly what I’ve been doing. I have a project […]

It’s coming up to spring and I’d definitely need it this year. I normally love winter and the cold, but I am struggling hard this year. I need flowers, I need green. I know it’s not quite time yet, but oh I have all the doors and windows open in my house as I type […]

I had a pretty amazing January to start off the year! I had two trips, and it was a decently mild weather month so it was nice to be outside as well. I would’ve been going to Imaging USA (biggest photographer conference in the US) to speak, but both of my vendors Sigma and Finao […]

Your kids love you and want to see you I love going through old pictures that my family has in storage boxes in the attic. I love knowing what my mother looked like before she was even married. I love being able to see my own face in my father’s mom’s face. It’s like looking […]

Why do some photographers do in-person ordering appointments instead of just a gallery? Let me tell you why I am one of those photographers and why that’s actually a GOOD thing! You can see the products Online shopping is always a bit hard to know what you’ll get. I know I always go right for […]

These are my 10 favorite photos from 2021. Not necessarily the BEST images of the year, but more my personal feelings on why I love these 10 the most. It’s super hard to pick just 10, but for each photo, I’ll write a little about why I picked it and what I love about it. […]

This year, it’s been a bit tough for everyone. I feel like last year, it was slightly easier because the pandemic was new and we were not tired yet. This year has been feeling like a slog through the mud and we’re all just exhausted. I need some magic, I need some happiness. I feel […]

One of the most common questions every photographer gets is “What should we wear for our pictures?” It can be super frustrating to try and coordinate outfits and pick colors that look good one everyone. Good news for you.. I provide all the dresses for my sessions unless you’re looking for something personal or you […]
