Capturing What Matters Most — Your Treasured Family Memories



Photography is a wonderful way to document and remember the love and happiness that comes from being with family. Taking pictures allows us to appreciate the small moments that ultimately become the most important ones. Photos give us the opportunity to revisit our treasured times that are gone too soon, while also having something to share and pass on to future generations. Looking back on family photographs can bring back the joy and nostalgia of those times, helping us to slow down and reminisce on the simple beauty of being together.

"Family is not an important thing, it's everything." -Michael J. Fox

With every click of the camera, I promise to capture the genuine connection between your family, the laughter and joy as you spend time together, the unique bond that each of you share, and the love you have for one another. I want to create timeless images that will stay with you always and bring you back to these special moments.

What to Expect

My goal is to make sure you have an enjoyable experience, feel confident, and, ultimately, love your photos. I'll guide you through everything from choosing the right location to finding the best outfits and poses. I'll send you a questionnaire to help me understand your vision and a style guide to help you dress to impress. Let's make magical memories you'll treasure forever!


Your Step by Step


Say hello! After you fill out the contact form, keep an eye on your email inbox. Together, we’ll confirm a date and discuss your vision. I'll send you a location guide and help you choose the ideal photo backdrop.

All sessions are scheduled during the “golden hour,” which is approximately an hour and a half before the sun sets.


Once we settle on the details, we can make it official! I will send you a contract to review and an invoice for your initial deposit.

Book Your Session

It's time to get ready! Picture day is your time to shine, so pretend you’re going in for a magazine cover photoshoot and live it up! I’ll give you everything you need to prepare, including:

  • A detailed style guide to help you choose outfits and colors that complement my light and airy elevated photography style, complete with a helpful checklist to help you stay organized.

  • Hair and makeup recommendations, upon request.

  • A detailed questionnaire to learn about your goals, likes, dislikes, and about everyone in the group.

  • An optional planning consultation call to discuss the details, get to know each other, clear up any last-minute questions, and provide additional 1:1 outfit guidance.

  • Open lines of communication throughout the whole process.




Time to make your vision a reality. I'll guide you through poses & photo combinations. Don't worry if you're shy or nervous; I'm here to help and make it fun! I'll get there early to set up, and you let me know when you arrive. We'll begin with the full family, then go through different photo combinations, starting with your most important down, capturing your priority photos first.



Picture Day

Editing magic begins. Editing is my favorite part of the session, and I often have to break out the tissues. I carefully hand-edit each photo, so you’ll receive only the best, highest quality images, free from distracting imperfections. You can anticipate a sneak peek shortly after your session and your fully-edited, private digital gallery within 15 days. You will have the option to purchase prints and products straight from your gallery.



Picture Reveal

Working with Heidi was better than we imagined. She was calm and organized with a clear vision, which helped us relax with our almost 1 year old! This was our first family shoot and we look forward to many more in the future.

“Heidi is an amazing photographer!

It is no easy feat to get three little kids and an infant to cooperate but somehow Heidi managed to make us all look our best. She really wanted to make sure we loved our photos and took a lot of time before and after the shoot to understand what we wanted for lighting, poses etc. the photos that she took are absolute treasures."

Her photos are truly magic...romantic, classic, bright, airy, whimsical, clean, fresh, timeless...I could go on. She captured our relationship with her camera perfectly and you can tell she spent the time to carefully choose the best photos while paying attention to special details. We can't thank her enough for being so kind, warm, professional, down to earth, and truly gifted at what she does."
