When I photograph people,
I want to see their true personalities shining through. Each stage of life is unique and fleeting. With two young kids of my own, I understand the value of capturing those memories at each stage.
My professional life has been dedicated to children.
I have been a classroom teacher for 11 years, and before that I taught swim and tennis to children. I have always loved watching children grow socially, emotionally and academically. I love bringing out the spark that is in each child. The wonder and excitement they exude as they discover the world. Childhood is such a magical time and I am lucky to be a witness.
While I LOVE to teach and I find passion,
happiness and purpose professionally, little moments with my own children had begun to fly by. The moments seemed to slip by so fast. How could I slow it down? What could I do to remember?
The days went on and on so full and busy,
I soon forgot how little my son was as a newborn. I forgot the little little things that used to make me smile… or want to pull my hair out. How could I capture the essence of this magical age? I turned to photography to when my children were very young as a way to remember the little moments when they show their personalities developing. I longed to capture the character shown inside their eyes. I wanted more than a once a year Christmas Card. I wanted to document the big moments, but more importantly I wanted to freeze time and be able to look back and RELIVE those special memories that were making them who they are. I wanted to look back and notice the details I was too busy to fully appreciate at the time.
I love to see them get MESSY, PLAY, DISCOVER, and INTERACT.
I realized I was not looking to put family “portraits” on the wall. I did not want them looking into the camera with a fake smile and seeing in their eye “when is this going to be over”. I want to capture THEM.
The longer I live the more I become aware that these little nuances are the thread that stitch our family together.
My photography purpose was born. I am focussed on the little things that are weaving our lives together. I want to capture for you want I have learned to capture in my own children. I want to encourage you to slow down the moment and appreciate it. I want to create images that you will treasure when your children are no longer children and everyday in-between.

"Heidi is so easy going, and wonderful to work with. Some of our silliest moments turned out to be the best shots because we were having so much fun. The kids had a blast too! Heidi's mixture of posed shots and play shots helped break up the time for them. Thanks Heidi! Sign us up for next year!!"
