About Heidi

Hi my name is Heidi and photography has been such an amazing gift in my life. It has not only allowed me to express my creative side and own my own business but has also allowed me to capture amazing photographs of my friends and family that will be cherished and passed down for generations.

I am a professional photographer with over 20 years of experience. I owned a high end photography studio where I specialized in Weddings, Children and Senior Portraits. I have an extensive education in creating and enhancing photographs as well as 20 years of real life experience photographing my customers.

It doesn’t matter what your current level of knowledge is right now. The important thing is that you have a passion.
#1 Understanding the Camera - I can show you how your camera works and how to get a variety of different looks using the various settings that camera has available
#2 Composition and Posing - You will understand composition and posing so you can quickly position your subjects to help them look their best. You will be able to use this knowledge to photograph both candid and posed pictures with ease.
#3 Communicating to Capture Real Emotion - But most importantly, I can teach you how to communicate and interact with your subject to get the best possible expressions. You will find out how to really bring out and capture their real emotion to create “WOW” photographs.

You will not only learn how to capture amazing photographs but also how to use Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop to touch up and enhance your images to get stunning results. I will also show you the tips and tricks that I use to design wall collages and one of a kind albums for yourself or your customers.

Regardless of what equipment you have, if you have the proper knowledge you can take stunning photographs. It doesn’t matter if you just want to learn to take awesome pictures of your friends and family or if you want to start a lucrative photography business.

If you have a passion for photography, I can help you unleash your creativity and discover the amazing photographer that is already within. Don’t wait another minute! Contact me NOW to start this incredible new journey.
