Hi, I'm Heather

Let me show you the color I see in your life.

If you’re in the Athens, Georgia area, you’ve probably spotted me behind the lens at the Botanical Gardens, UGA’s campus,  the Founder's Garden, you name it. I’m a 6-foot redhead, so it’s truly impossible to miss me. If I’m being silly or frolicking around like a maniac, it’s because I pride myself in creating FUN experiences for the kids in front of my camera. I’ve been working with children for over 25 years, so I speak their language fluently. 

I’m also a fur-mom of 2 blind cats, love gardening, & enjoy waking up at the crack of dawn on dewy mornings to capture macro photos of tiny creatures.

While I adore my hometown of Athens, I love that I get to frequently travel & speak at photography conferences around the country. I'm a SIGMA America Ambassador, an Imagen Ambassador, a Nanlite Ambassador, and a Fundy Storyteller. 

more about heather

"What you do is proof that there is magic in this world.

My daughters still talk about their session with you as one of the best days of their lives. I don't know how you do it but they each think you are their very best friend.

We loved our experience with you so much we traveled across the country to see you again. My fairy pictures of my daughters are true treasures. Not only are they beautiful but they captured the magic of my daughter's childhood."

"Heather of Fairyography is super talented - she knows just the right thing to say to trigger giggles which = amazing photos! 

- Jennifer, Lewiston ID

We enjoyed every minute spent with her at our session."

"I truly love my album and wouldn't change anything.

It is even more beautiful than I could have anticipated--the weight is unreal for that front cover and the leather is just absolutely perfect with the overall design choices. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE. I so wished that I lived in your area and that I could have been in your presence when I saw my album for the first time because you deserve to see the joy, the absolute delight in beholding all of that angst-ing over those pictures come full circle."

they are part an amazing super fun experience

Hi, I’m Heather, and I don’t only want to provide you with vibrant, personality-filled portraits that you will cherish for decades, but I also want you to have an amazing luxury experience from start to finish. I will walk you through the entire process… choosing outfits, styling your session, selecting the perfect location, and ultimately picking out your final images and creating tangible products that will forever remind you of this time in your life. Time is fleeting, especially with children, and my goal is to capture them as they truly are — no forced smiles, tears, or bribes. As a former pre-school teacher, I have 25+ years experience with kids and can guarantee they’ll enjoy their time with me and we’ll capture real expressions and true joy. 

Did you know that a recent study found that children grow up with a greater self-confidence if they see photos of themselves displayed in their homes? Investing in family portraits and photos of your kids is so important and something that will only increase in value over time.
