what can I share with you?




I'm passionate about photography and sharing what I know about this craft with those eager to learn!



i'm heather, a photographer & a teacher


where YOU want to be

Early in my career, I also taught digital photography at a local college and I loved it. Being able to share with those who were excited to learn was so rewarding and fun. Since then, I've mentored several photographers at various stages in their photography journeys, tailoring our sessions to their desired focus. 

Wherever you are in your business, I've been there! Success for me didn't happen overnight, but my business has grown every year for the past 16+ years. I'd love to share what I've learned along the way to help make that happen for you.

You're in the right place.

Photography Education

Portfolio Review & curation

business insight


Heather was so generous with her knowledge and experience... She was an open book and truly left me with a new perspective and inspiration.



From beginners who are just picking up a camera for the first time, to experienced photographers looking to enhance their skills, I have taught at ALL levels and can customize a mentor session or series to help acheive your goals. General photography techniques, natural light portraiture, off-camera lighting and flash, Lightroom processing and photo editing... whatever your photography interests, I'm excited to share what I know with you through tailored instruction.

The refined portfolio

As a photographer, I know firsthand how stressful and overwhelming it can feel to update your online portfolio. The Refined Portfolio is my answer to that daunting feeling! It's a 1-on-1 portfolio review & curation workshop in which I personally guide you through creating an elevated portfolio. In as little as one week, you'll have a portfolio that will help you attract your ideal clients!

Only available for a limited time so reach out today!

this different

Many photographers offer mentorship opportunities, but I pride myself on tailoring each mentorship to the unique interests and goals of each mentee. From beginners to the more advanced, I've helped many hone their craft and refine their processes with a customized approach to honor where you are and where you want to be.

Heather's supportive and honest nature made the whole experience a real pleasure. If you're looking to take your photography or business to the next level, I highly recommend Heather's mentorship.
Thanks a million, Heather!
