Here I'll be sharing a variety of client stories as well as personal and educational articles. Read on to meet the special needs princesses I see every year, find client information, read about the tips and tricks I use on kids, and check out what gear I love.
I don’t normally do newborn baby pictures in red, but this family looks amazing in red and has done the entire baby nursery in red also, so naturally, I had to do some of this gorgeous studio newborn session in red! Baby girl was perfect for her session and slept through the whole thing, which […]
Story time! In May, I had a fairy session in Seattle for a repeat client. I shot the session, then went to do a class and another session the following day. I downloaded the class images and the second session, but I somehow failed to download the first session before reformatting that card. When I […]
Get your hair done I highly highly recommend having your hair professionally done. Not only is it one less thing for you to worry about that day, but you are guaranteed to get something fantastic that will last the entire photo shoot. You’ll want to be in photos with your baby, so pamper yourself a […]
I travel to teach a lot with my lens company (SIGMA Lenses) and I think my most popular photography classes are my dancer classes. I always go over a quick educational bit in the beginning about how to get good dancer photos and what makes a good ballet pose. I talk about turnout and winged […]

July has been a very slow month for me, mostly just prepping for a big studio move. I bought plants for my garden and went looking at plants in the botanical garden with friends. I laughed at my cat, had fun with the girl I nanny after school, and then had to make sure I […]
This fabulous young man is my honorary nephew, and his mom flew me up to Glastonbury CT to do his senior pictures and document his high school graduation. He’s going to college at the University of Connecticut, so we did his senior portraits on the school campus. Go Huskies! I had to get one of […]
June was an absolutely insane month of travel for me. I was actually away from home more than I was here for June. It started with a trip to Glastonbury CT to see my honorary nephew graduate high school and do his graduation and senior pictures. I was home for about a week after that […]
I’m Heather, a 6-foot redhead with a camera who believes in fairytales. Years ago, with my Early Childhood Degree under my arm, I became a lead instructor in a classroom with eleven 2-year-olds. It was loud, chaotic, and messy, and I absolutely loved it. During the day, I often took photos for the parents so […]
