editorial + advertising
Hi! I'm Heather...Southern girl, born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama and now live in Nashville, Tennessee. I suffer from wanderlust and jump at any opportunity to travel. There's nothing more thrilling to me than experiencing and exploring a new place -- it's sights, sounds and tastes. I've worked for clients in France, London, New York, Atlanta, Memphis, and the Beaches of 30A, just to name a few. And, summer 2019 my camera is taking me to Nova Scotia, Canada and Sweden.
I believe the most authentic and lasting images are created through connection, emotion and light. My philosophy for wedding images has always been that the images I create for my clients tell a story and be as relative in 50 years as they are today, edited in timeless, classic color and black and white. Advertising and editorial work is where I get to spread my wings a little more on creative editing styles, relative to trends in the marketplace, the brands my clients want to promote and the stories they want to tell.
I've been a professional photographer for over 16 years and shot film exclusively for the first 5 years of my business. Prior to being a photographer, I worked in the fashion industry and as an art director for a magazine publisher. Those experiences were invaluable and affect how I shoot today. It's not enough for me to just deliver amazing mages. My goal for every shoot is to exceed my client's expectations, both in delivering beautiful images that tell a story and experiences that turn into friendships.
