Hey! My name is Heather;
and I’m all about the brief and gritty moments.
Mother. Wife. Photographer.
Artist. Coffee Obsessed.
Just like everyone else, I have many labels. But mother is the one that matters the most. I have birthed two children who are the whole reason how I got to where I am today. I’d always had a camera in my hand, but it wasn’t until they were born that I realized how important it is to capture moments…not just the big and perfect but the brief, small and gritty one’s as well. Time is ever fleeting, and memories can fade or alter with time. It is the tangible, the boxes of photographs that we have, that remind us of who we are, where we come from and help guide us into who we are ever continuing to become.
I married the boy I knew in high school but refused to give two seconds of my attention to. But life had a way of bringing us back together in college and like they say “the rest is history”. He’s a flannel wearing forester and Army man who’s soul is made up of pine needles, summer breezes, soil and determination. He’s everything I’m not which is why he’s not only my soulmate but my kryptonite. He challenges and loves me endlessly and I’m a better person because of him.
Some quirky facts about me include:
+ I collect donut t-shirts and coffee mugs
+ I am a Gryffinclaw
+ My hair is normally a windblown mess
+ I buy books impulsively
+ My husband and I are section hiking away at the Pacific Crest Trail
+ I am the raining UNO champ in my family
So you’re looking for a photographer?
Finding a photographer is like going on a first date, and with so many photographers out there it can feel daunting and overwhelming (I totally get it, I was there with my own wedding.) But it also can be exciting and wonderful.
That's where I come in.
I’m all about the authentic and real moments. Snort laughs, a tushy grab, hands in the hair. Don’t worry about what you’r wearing, how you look, or what Pinterest has suggested you do. Relax, and be loved. Find comfort in one another, as you are. I’ve got you.
My style is inspired by the old film photos I have in boxes collected from various family members. It is my goal every time I come into a session to not just capture the staged photos (you know, the ones mom loves) but to also capture the moments and memories…to tell your story for generations to come.
