Hi! Well, as you know, my name is Heather. :) What you may or may not know is that I am a mom of 2 terrific kids! Ok, well sometimes they are terrific, other times they are driving me bonkers! But thats kids for ya! ;)
I started my photography passion since I was a child. My father was a photographer, but back in those days, there were no DSR's and digital photography, everything was on film. I remember going to the local pharmacy with my dad buying rolls of film, and even going into camera stores in the city with my dad to check out new equipment for him. I also recall my dad's darkroom in our basement. He would NEVER allow us in there. That was his special room. I do recall sneaking around in there one day.... he had pictures hanging on a string drying, the chemicals were in bottles on the floor. I was always so curious as to my dad's profession. He would take out his cameras from time to time and show me the different lenses and I was always so intrigued.
Now, let's fast forward to today. My how things have changed! I've always was the girl with the "nice" camera, but never knew how to use it. When I would see people with their "fancy camera's" I would always be in awe and I wish I could just walk right up to them and pick their brains.
Once my kids were born, I would "play" photographer! Yes, true story! :) I would lay them down, try to position them. I would take a million and one shots of them all in the same pose! I would be that mom taking pictures of every little move or step my kids made.... and now that I look back at those pictures I think to myself.... "What was I thinking!"
So now I had all these pictures I thought, hhmmmm maybe I should scrapbook them so I can create albums for them when they get older. So I did the scrapbooking thing for a while, and then it hit me! I need to really learn how this camera works!
So, when my youngest son was born, I decided that I wanted to learn more about photography so I can follow through with my passion. It was time to learn! I took some courses and I really enjoyed every minute of it! I took more courses on lighting and different techniques. I also played with different editing software, and well, here I am today continuing with my passion.
I love to work with the families I work with. I enjoy every second of my job, from being able to hold the "fancy camera", to meeting amazing families and children. To be able to watch the children grow from being only a few days old, to celebrating their first birthdays and so on. But the most rewarding part of what I love, is that the families will have these images forever and will always have that special moment in time to look back on. Every part of what I do, I really and truly love!
