Fairyography specialized in modern, vibrant and fun photography for families. From babies to kids to teens, I know how to help you all look and feel like your best selves.
Outdoor family portraits are stress free, fun, and easy. I will help you with your wardrobe for your photo session, help you choose a location, and take care of all the planning for you. I have many initially unexcited dads who thank me afterwards for the session being as great as it was!
When I'm posing families, they'll look candid, never stiff. I do that by making a fool of myself behind the camera. I will pose you, then ask silly questions that make you and your kids laugh. I was a pre-school teacher before I became a photographer, so I know all about how to manage over-exuberant kids or bring a shy child out of their bubble. You'll feel at ease and look natural in front of the camera, right from the pages of a catalog for your images!
I specialize in posing families so you can look your best, so you won't find any stiff pictures here! Just relaxed, natural portraits.
They all look amazing!"
"I was talking with a friend of mine who has used you too, telling her about how nervous I was that we just weren't our best that night.. She said 'oh, you know you'll be amazing, Heather's so good!' and I said 'yeah I know, we've used her before, but...' and I know, I shouldn't have worried.
- Rebecca Bishop, Georgia
I am known for being patient and taking the time to get a shy child to open up, or waiting for a silly kid to calm a bit. The true smiles and real expressions captured in my photography will make the personalities of each family member shine.
The location you choose can set the mood, so I have a whole list of my favorite places to take family pictures. I make sure to find the best light and include the surrounding environmental area to make your photos stand out. I also help you with your family's wardrobe or just pick everything for you, making it even easier. The resulting prints and albums will be treasured by your family for generations to come.
You want a photographer who will do more than just hand you a bunch of digital images and leave you to do all the work yourself. I provide a cohesive gallery that will all go together so that when you're picking images for a wall gallery or album they'll all look good together.
I taught pre-k before opening my photo studio, so I know how to manage children. A lot of clients tell me how the kids they thought they'd have to bribe spend the next week talking about how fun Miss Heather was.
Autumn is traditionally the time when families schedule their photo sessions because of the holiday season. Fall pictures are wonderful because the weather has cooled down and the summer hectic time is past. Prints and albums make perfect gifts for Christmas, Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa of course, but are also wonderful for Mother's Day, Father's day, Grandparent's day, and Valentine's day gifts. If you send holiday cards at the end of the year, what better way to show how your family has grown than with family photo cards?

When you visit my studio you will be able to see, touch and hold each of our professionally sourced heirloom products. I want you to know why my albums are heavier than the ones from other places. I want to show you the difference between luster finish and deep matte.
Hold the product. Feel the difference. Know what you’ll be getting, and be thrilled with your custom artwork!
You’re worth being on the walls and your kids need to know it’s a good thing to be proud of yourself!
I can not only tell you why prints are important, but also about a few of my own personal reasons.
