Hey there, I'm Heather!
I've always been the shy kid, the quiet girl with her nose in a book. For years I hated that about myself, but now that I'm a photographer I can finally see that my wallflower tendencies are perhaps my greatest strength as an artist.
I consider myself a documentary style photographer, meaning that I like to capture moments as they naturally unfold. My quiet nature helps me to blend into the background, to observe the story in front of me and capture the beauty of it as it is. I believe that ten, twenty years from now you'll want to remember your story exactly as it happened, and not a fabricated version where everyone is smiling nervously at the camera.
I am a storyteller at heart, and there's something so meaningful to me about the privilege of meeting so many incredible people and telling their story in a tangible way that they can enjoy for the rest of their lives.

I'm a twenty-six year old pastor's wife living in Raleigh, North Carolina. I love going for adventures around the city and then coming home to a stack of library books and mug of coffee. Every night I pretend to cook dinner until my husband comes to the rescue and puts together something edible. I was an English major in college, and then went through several odd jobs before God put photography in my lap. After somewhat miraculously acquiring my first DSLR camera (it's a long story, ask me about it), I spent a year cleaning houses while I learned the basics of photography as well as how to start a business, figure out my style and, most importantly, tell a story from the heart. I am happy to say that it paid off and I am finally doing what I feel called to do. It's the most fun I've ever had.
