Photographs that stir a

Hi, I'm Heather—photographer, mother, and believer in cherishing the everyday moments.



Currently, I reside on the border of Bucktown and Logan Square in Chicago, alongside my partner Jeff, my son Liam, and our little red dog Poppy. We love our time together, whether it’s cozying up for a movie night, embarking on a quest to discover the best pizza places in Chicago (our favorites being The Stop Along and the classic D’Agostino’s), or engaging in epic Uno and Monopoly games. Our little city yard, filled with overflowing planters of flowers, becomes our sanctuary during the Summer. We also love taking walks through our neighborhood and stopping at The Freeze or grabbing slushies and chicken nuggets from Parsons.

I have always been captivated by the power of photos. They have the ability to take us back to a specific moment, evoking the same emotions we felt at that time.

I couldn’t wait to head to the local Jewel Osco to have my rolls of film developed. That love for photography stayed present through high school capturing friends with wind up disposables (I still love the sound of winding those Kodak Fun Savers).  After college, I worked in the Fashion Industry for several years and always found myself studying the photographs so much more than the actual clothing being displayed.  

When I became a
mother to my son,
everything changed. 

I had a deep desire to capture every moment
before it slipped away. I wanted to document our
daily lives, from the toys on the floor to the messy
faces after mealtime. 

As a mother, I know firsthand the beauty and magic of capturing
everyday moments with the ones we love the most. I’m now in my
10th year of photographing families and have never loved any
vocation more. My goal is to create a comfortable and relaxed
environment where you can truly be yourselves.

It would be an honor to collaborate with you and create
something beautiful together.

"Thank you for putting up with the chaos and somehow still capturing the best moments!

Adam and I looked through them tonight and love every single one.  We can't wait to frame so many of these!"
