Hi, I’m Heather! I'm a wife, mother of two boys, and Southern California native. I've been obsessed with capturing images of people since I was young. My heart is in photographing people and their connections to each other, I love relationships. I offer family portrait photography, maternity photos, lifestyle newborn sessions, weddings & engagements in Oceanside, CA and surrounding areas including all of North County, San Diego County, and Orange County.


I am so grateful for this continuous journey of capturing photos- they are a representation of love and the most important people in our lives. My photographic style is natural. I give lots of direction, yet it appears very unposed. My photos have been described as romantic, joyful, organic, and very editorial. I am a big director and always guide my clients through the most flattering posing to look their best. I am inspired by beautiful colors, interesting textures, and creative compositions that will make art to hang on your wall. I am in love with golden light, natural smiles and those in-between moments that are always my favorite candid photos. Whether it's a wedding, and engagement, a portrait session, or even the celebration of an anniversary, I love to capture photos that I know my clients and their children will be looking at for generations to come.

telling your story through the yearsphotography


Empowered, Beautiful & Limitless


Nothing can let you relive your pregnancy like pictures. A maternity photo shoot will give you the chance to capture this priceless moment and look back on it time and time again. Not only does a maternity photo shoot provide you with precious memories, but one day your baby will love getting the chance to catch a glimpse of their life on the other side. A maternity photo shoot is a great way for you to feel beautiful and own that baby bump. In the meantime, you will also be capturing precious memories that will last a lifetime. You should look back on these photos with pride and a sense of accomplishment. You grew a human, Mama! Not everyone has the honor of such an experience!


Innocence, Sweetness, & Connection


My newborn sessions focus on the family interaction and connection in your family when you bring your baby home. My sessions are in your home, relaxed, time efficient, and they result in a gallery full of beautiful moments captured that tell the story of this time. I practice what I call natural "Baby Led Posing." This means that I don't ever put a baby in a flower pot. :) I think babies are beautiful as they are. The natural unfolding of a newborn's limbs when the stretch, the way they curl up when placed on their belly for a moment, the way they look when cozily swaddled, all of that is so simple and beautiful to me. This is how I remember my babies, and that is how I photograph them.


Colorful, Sweet & Organic


Whether I'm capturing your sweet family, or celebrating a special moment in your life, like a birthday, anniversary or new baby, I'm so honored to help you create memories you’ll cherish for a lifetime. These sessions are so much fun! Your only job is to be yourself, laugh a lot and let me create photos you’ll love forever. I am a big director so I will be guiding you every step of the way. Portraits are all about relationships and I love to show that in my images.


Joyful, Fresh & Natural


Engagements are one of my favorites because it gives you a chance to be in front of my camera before you get married, which is going to make your wedding day experience feel so smooth, seamless and comfortable. Not only that, but we get to create something so special together. You’re going to be married for over 50 years, but you only get to be engaged for this short period of time. I love to capture the only time in your life when you get to be each other’s fiancés.


Romantic, Elegant & Authentic

I love weddings because each one is unique! There are so many important elements, and I transition between portraits, photojournalism, and details throughout the day to create well balanced coverage that tells the whole story. I always incorporate natural and organic elements into my photography that will reflect your wedding. I am primarily a natural light photographer, but I also have years of studio experience that allows me to find beautiful light in any situation.
