The Photographer

I am Heather Doughty and I am so pumped that you stopped by. So what can I tell you about me… being totally transparent; I really struggle to talk about myself;  I always feel like I am rambling and oversharing; but here goes …

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, 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 animals, any and all animals. I am fur-mom to two Chinese Crested and a Weimaraner.

I am a lover of life. I love every exquisite, magical moment. 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. I tell 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, but lots of space to create memories.

As we work together; I will look for your moments, your connections, your stories.  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.

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. Just fill out the form on my Contact page; I cannot wait to chat!

Ooh.. & I included a little slideshow so you can see the pieces of my life too.

Additionally, visit INSPIRE: The Women’s Portrait Project to see some of the work I have been involved in around the community. The mission of INSPIRE is to create a safe space to honour, share and celebrate the stories of women by recognizing the remarkable in the regular.

You can also check out some of my creative photography where I push limits to create beautiful pieces of art, Create Daze.
