Welcome to my happy place
I thank God everyday that He has blessed me with my passion and let's face it, my obsession with photography. I get to hang out with the happiest people on Earth -- Couples in Love. It was a long road filled with unexpected twists and turns that brought me to this amazing career. After graduating with a psychology degree from Cal Poly, which came free with a side of anxiety, I had no clue what I was supposed to do next. After an aptitude test pointed me in the direction of fashion design, I enrolled at FIDM. What started out as a shot in the dark, ended up becoming a passion for fashion! I graduated with the highest honors and found myself with a real job designing baby clothes at Gymboree! It wasn't until I married the man of my dreams, who I met traveling in Australia, that I unearthed another passion of mine: photography. I never thought I would find that thing -- that God given gift that would fill my heart with so much happiness. Fashion and Photography couldn't be a more beautiful union as the combination of both make me the unique photographer I am today. This just in: After 8 years at Gymboree, I took a leap of faith to pursue photography full time. I have never been more happy!
And now the "dating website profile":
My friends would probably describe me as a big happy goof ball, sentimental to a fault, and one suffering from FOMO (fear of missing out). I am drawn to challenges, seek adventure, and live for making people laugh. I cry at every wedding, have boxes filled with memorabilia dating as far back as 7th grade, and so many photo albums that you could stack them to the heavens. I believe all these pieces of me come out in my photography.
Most of all, I love that I get to meet incredible people every day! I live for a couple's story, and if I could, I would eat popcorn and listen to one couple after the next tell me how they fell in love. I LOVE a good story and cannot wait to hear yours! Feel free to reach out, I'd love to meet you!
Your Pal, Heather
