Hey! I’m Heather! If I look familiar, it’s because I am Hannah’s older sister. We’re basically the same person. Just 10 years apart! I’m a 20 year veteran wedding photographer, turning to boudoir after a long exhausting wedding career and a journey to motherhood.
I’ve always had a love hate relationship with my body. I’ve struggled with self-esteem and body dysmorphia for as long as I can remember. As a young girl, my curvy shape, attracted the wrong kind of attention and caused me to rebel and hide my figure. Eventually that turned into disordered eating and tremendous weight gain. My life has been a series of yo-yo diets and hating the body I’m in. In 2016 my husband and I started trying for a baby and after more than two years of no success, I was diagnosed with unexplained infertility. That made me hate my body even more. All I wanted in life was to be a mother. I was lost and broken and my only option was to start IVF, but not before required weight loss. My body was never good enough. I spent the next year and a half losing weight for my eventual baby and trying to convince myself that my body could do what it was meant to do.
Enter the Pandemic. All of a sudden, my stressful, fast paced, wedding photographer lifestyle came to a screeching halt. I was able to breathe, focus on myself, sit in the sun, and spend time with my family. I was experiencing things that I had never had in my life, which was balance and calm. I wore shorts for the first time in 15 years, a bikini, and began to appreciate all that I was capable of. I knew that if I needed my body to create life, I needed to give her respect.
To commemorate my journey to self love and hopefully motherhood I did my own session with Hannah in early 2020. The experience left me renewed. Feeling strong, worthy and beautiful. I carried that feeling with me through 3 rounds of IVF, pregnancy and new motherhood. That’s when I KNEW this change of path was for me. I want to help other women, especially those going through motherhood journeys, rediscover their fire and fierceness! I want to show my daughter that my body (and hers) are strong, capable and worth living no matter what. And I want to help YOU celebrate where ever you are in your self-love journey.
Heather was amazing and made me feel so beautiful. She took the time to pose me and make me feel comfortable in front of the camera. If you’re looking to book a shoot you will not be disappointed.
I did a shoot with Heather and it was amazing! She definitely gave me the confidence boost I needed. Not only did she take breathtaking photos, but she was incredibly kind, sweet and made me feel completely comfortable. Hannahs studio is to die for! I wish I could hang out there everyday. If you're questioning if you should do it, the answer is 110% yes!
Doing a boudoir shoot with Heather is amazing! She makes you feel comfortable from the moment you meet. Heather is great at shooting you no matter your shape or size. She is open to any idea you may have for a photo, even if that means standing on a radiator! But if you don’t have any pose or photo ideas she gives you easy to understand prompts, and her poses are *chef’s kiss* If you’re debating on doing a boudoir shoot with Heather 100% DO IT!!
