Hi! I’m Heather

My friends will tell you that I am a hippie at heart. I do feel a bit of a Janis Joplin soul (I drive a VW Bug named Herbie), but with a twist of Meryl Streep. I am a wife and partner to the greatest man. We recently celebrated our 30 year anniversary with a vow renewal at the same venue, on the same day. It was epic and so absolutely perfect. I am a mom and a grandma. (Yes, I am that old, however, my soul feels about 31 and I can still do the same ridiculous and incredibly corny dance moves that I did then). I love any and all animals. I am fur-mom to two Chinese Crested and a Weimaraner.

I love every exquisite moment of this magical life and I value every connection. The bond that connects us to each other fascinates me and drives me to capture it. This is the reason why I am a photographer. Read more about that story here.

I believe in that beauty that exists in everyone and can shine if given the chance. I love to laugh; the world needs more laughter. I love beautiful things that make me cry. I love nature; my husband gave life back to a vintage trailer and we spend time together where there is no cell service, and lots of space to create memories.

Through photography, I love people showing who they really are, people who are living life to the fullest and most importantly are fully present in the moments we are together. I believe in giving back the beautiful, precious visual pieces of your story. I believe that each of us has a story to tell and that we should listen to each other’s story. As we work together, I will look for your moments, your connections, your stories.

Thank you for taking the time to read about me, if you feel that we just might connect, I would love to meet you.
