Hi, I’m Heidi,
I have been capturing happy and heartfelt moments for families since 2008. Second only to my 4 crazy boys, photography is what I am most passionate about. Both motivate me to be more than I was yesterday; as a mom, as a photographer, as a friend, as a business owner, as an artist, and as a person. I feel so incredibly blessed to be living my life surrounded by so much of what I love.
I am passionate about capturing the love between the people I am photographing. I relish representing the connections and unique relationship each family has, in an image that tells a story, which beautifully portrays the personality and individuality of each person I photograph. I enjoy throwing off the rigid constraints of formal family portraits and getting families outside, to the locations in which they feel most comfortable, this is where they come alive and are most themselves. That is when I get the photographs I am most excited about; the in-between moments, the organic, unplanned looks and laughs. From behind my camera, I am able to glimpse people’s lives and create thoughtful images. These images become memories that are unique and personal and timeless.
I love to be outside, in my beautiful state of Washington, photographing nature and the tiny things that usually go unseen, the small details people don’t commonly notice, and revealing the beauty hidden there. Drawing attention to the tiny flower or the intricate detail of a perfect snowflake on a glove.
I am a business owner, a volunteer and an active member of my community. Being a Mom attending sports games and photographing the kids who make our town so vibrant is so much fun.
My art, and message is one of joy and love and relationships. I would love the opportunity to capture yours.
