The definition of a great image is one that stays with you, one that you can’t forget.

I Want To Be Your Photographer...

You are unique, and my job, as a portrait photographer, is to capture that special something that makes you stand out.

I am an avid audiobook listener and a converted dog lover with a contagious laugh. But when it comes to my work, what you need to know is that I am a natural storyteller and an out of the box kind of artist who loves vivid and bold colors. My enthusiasm for people has led me to believe that everyone has a uniqueness that is waiting to be expressed through photography.

Have you ever experienced a photo session that was awkward and stuffy? It probably resulted in a handful of pictures that are now somewhere in a box at the top of your closet. Not what I consider ideal. I’d rather take portraits that show the real you and produce images that you will proudly display, knowing they have captured your heart and soul.

My fun and engaging personality will allow you to feel at ease from the start. To ensure success, comfort is key. No fake smiles. No awkward studio poses. My experience and professionalism creates a stress-free and fun environment so you can experience joy throughout the entire process.

I am looking forward to connecting with you!

The time-honored tradition of family portraits is often thought of as a stressful day. Mom is on the fritz because she wants it to be perfect. Dad hates this day because Mom is so stressed.

Investment

Just like you, each session is unique. The same holds true for your investment. These are no cookie cutter sessions or products, so costs will vary. Please call Heidi to discuss all of the details of your special day. All session fees are paid in full prior to your session. Wall portraits, heirloom albums, keepsake boxes, and gift prints are additional costs and will be ordered separately during your reveal and ordering session.

Cell phones

You are permitted to use cell phones to take behind the scene footage of your session. This is a great way to start working on your referral rewards. However, cell phones are not permitted to take the same picture that you are paying Heidi to take for you.

Referral Rewards

Yes, there is a referral rewards system! Word of mouth is the way to go these days. Please contact Heidi for the full details on how it works.

Why Prints?

I believe in the magic of holding your image in your hand, either as a piece of art for your wall or in an heirloom album. It is truly an exciting experience which seems to have gotten lost in this age of smart phones and social media. I want you to share in the joy, that is why I believe in physical prints of all my work.

Digital files

I love that everyone is excited to share their images. Each session comes with matching social media files for the prints ordered with the option to purchase additional digital files.

What are print credits?

Print credit means you have money to spend right at your reveal and order session! I want every client to have wall art that fits their home or business, so I’m helping you get there by giving back and getting your ordering session off to a great start.

Testimonials

It was such a joy to work with Heidi. She has this way of really making you feel comfortable in your own skin. She was available throughout the whole process from picking out what to wear to, to deciding on the perfect location for my family portrait, to suggesting what pieces would work perfectly displayed in our home. I had no idea how much work really went into this. Simply put, she is amazing!


- Missy - Family Portraits

Heidi was such a blast to work with. I had an idea in my head for my advertisement and a rough idea of how to accomplish it. She stepped in and made it a reality. I don't know how she was able pull it off but she sure did. I can't wait to work with her again!


- Dustin - Advertising agency

I didn’t realize how cool it was going to be to hold my final canvas in my hands…it was amazing, everyone loves it and comments on how great it is when they see it! Thank You.


- Jennifer - Family Portrait

Your images have helped boost our sales, Thanks so much!


- Travis - Business owner

I was nervous at first, because I’d never had my portrait taken by a professional photographer before, but your laughter and personality made me feel so comfortable and I love my final images!


- Jessica - Glamour

Heidi was so right. My baby has gone off to college and I miss him so much but I feel close to him when I look at his senior pictures. Thank you for this gift that is comforting my heart right now!


- Jennifer - Senior Mom

Heidi is not just an exceptional photographer she is an exceptional person. She is fun to work with and makes sure every detail has been thought through and prepared for. She has taken professional portraits for me at my downtown office and photos of my family with barefoot grandkids and "the uncles" goofing-off in the beautiful surrounds of nature. Though very different settings the photos are equally stunning. You will never be sorry for choosing Heidi. She is our lifetime photographer. They just don't get any better!


- Terrilyn - Personal Branding & Family Portraits

I wanted a birth photographer and I can’t say enough about Heidi. She was great! She stayed by our side through 30 hours of labor. She was aware of her boundaries and asked when she wasn’t sure. The experience was better than I ever imagined and the images melt my heart every single time I look at them.


- Tabetha - Labor & Delivery

Heidi always makes everyone in our family feel completely comfortable when she's photographing us, and her charm even worked on our stubborn teenager.
