About

ER Nurse by day, photographer by night. I enjoy capturing moments as they happen, authentically with use of natural light. I am a one-woman show, however I have been taking photos for over ten years now and have gotten pretty good at moving quickly and efficiently to bring to life your vision.

General Photography

She has been as responsive, courteous, and professional, as she has been friendly, and fun to converse with. We are excited to meet her in person!

General Photography

I connected with Heather through a Bark inquiry for family beach photos in Maine during our vacation. From our first contact I found Heather to be upbeat and accommodating. She was true to her word in every aspect. Her terms of service were transparent and spot on and we had no "surprises" in terms of cost.

Heather captured the Popham scenery in our many portrait and playful photos. I loved it that she touched up many photos (favorites of hers!) before we even saw them, and was accommodating in doing touch-ups on others we liked.

The online portrait studio format was easy to use and easy to share. One of the most impressive aspects was the speed in which photos were available to us! Literally within days!

Now our biggest challenge is to decide which on the many wonderful shots to use!

I highly recommend Heather and hope to work with her again in the future!

Headshot Photographers

I sought out a local photographer to take some professional (but not too "stuffy") head shots for me in Boston. Heather was so wonderful to work with! She's extremely relatable, and has your personal vision and preferences in mind throughout the entire shoot. I loved all of her suggestions for backdrop and scene setting, and she implemented all the inspirations I shared from Pinterest before the day of our shoot. I absolutely ADORE Heather's personal touch and editing style. On top of being extremely professional and humble, she was kind and encouraging. I absolutely plan on working with Heather again for future events, 100%! More...

Q&As

For me, capturing a great photograph is about framing it well with a background as well as using lighting to make the photograph more dramatic. Using your surroundings allows your photos to not only capture the beauty of your subject, but also tells a story of where and when you were taking these photos.

FAQs include your vision for the end-product; how many photos, indoor/outdoor, number of outfit changes. I'd also like to know if you have any insecurities - I know, it's hard to talk about with a complete stranger - but it allows me to work around anything you don't want featured and highlight the things you're more confident in.

I enjoy helping my clients to have fun during our shoots! Sure, being vulnerable with a complete stranger is never an easy undertaking, however I've gotten relatively good at trying to lighten the mood and make things way more fun than awkward. When I am sensing that a client is more nervous than most, I take baby steps to get them used to being in front of the camera. Showing them what they look like with a preview of what they look like, or providing small coaching tips has helped me successfully take on clients of all comfort level.

Growing up, my Dad always had a camera around. He is a professional photo/video guru based out of Boston, MA and I had the privilege of not only watching him work his magic, but also helping him as a second-shooter for many years. I've learned nearly all of what I know about the photo industry from him, and I'm still learning!

Clients should choose me if they're looking for a one-woman show who focuses more on an "organic" style of photo. Being a full time ER Nurse, photography is truly a second profession for me. This means that, while I love being able to turn this hobby into a way to help pay the bills, I am by no means the best of the best, with the best of the best equipment or assistants. I would encourage clients who are considering hiring me to explore my website at my style of work. Being a solo shooter, I do not have other hands helping to hold/carry lights or capture additional camera angles. This means that I tend to move around a lot during the shoot to get you different angles/views while you remain in one location, and it means that I try to utilize natural lighting to enhance our product. This style of photography simply isn't for everyone. Please, take a look around! If you have any questions or would like to speak about an upcoming opportunity you might have, feel free to reach out.
