Who I am

I am Heather and I am so pumped that you stopped by.

So who am I ?

I gotta tell you.. I am not a fan of labels;  which is probably why I struggle to talk about myself.     I never feel like I fit under one concise label.

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 maybe with a twist of Meryl Streep.

I am a wife and partner to the greatest man.   We celebrated our 30 year anniversary with a vow renewal at the same venue;  on the same day. It was epic and awesome and so absolutely perfect.

I am a mom and a grandma.   Yes; I am that old. Well at least in earth years;  my soul feels about 31 and I can still do the same absolutely ridiculous; incredibly corny dance moves that I did at that age.

I love animals…  all animals. I am fur-mom to a Weimaraner and 2 chinese crested and if you want to see me cry show me one of those facebook videos or a Disney movie.

I am a lover of life.   I love every exquisite, magical moment.

I value every connection;  the mystical bond that connects us to each other; it fascinates me and drives me to capture it.

I believe in the beauty that exists in everyone.

I love to laugh;  the world needs more laughter.

I love beautiful things that make me cry.

I love nature;  my hubby gave life back to a vintage trailer and we spend time together where there is no cell service,  but lots of space to create memories.

I believe in creativity; in pushing the limits.

I love the human face;  the stories a portrait can tell. Hop on over here to check out my heart project :   INSPIRE: The Women’s Portrait Project.

Not sure if you can tell by now but photography is not my job;  it is my soul.

As we work together; I will look for your moments, your connections, your stories.   I love humans that show me who they really are; who are living life to the fullest;  who are fully present in this moment we are together.  I capture the emotions and visually tell the stories of a life.

I want every client to be able to look back on their photos and remember the emotion as if it was happening again.

As you can see; I don’t quite fit under a single neat label and I am totally ok with that.

Thank you for taking the time to read about me; if you feel that we just might make a good team; I would love to meet you. Head on over to the contact page to fill out the form and we can set something up.
