After 'I Do'

Hello! My name is Heather and I am so happy you stopped by! This blog is a place where I will share love stories of amazing couples who I had the honor of photographing. It is a place where I can express my passion with images where my words fall short. Photography has changed my life drastically and I am so thankful that God has blessed me with this gift. I wish I could say the same thing about my singing voice, but what can you do?!

Welcome!

Casey and Janelle’s proposal story is EXACTLY the reason why I am obsessed with what I do for a living! I get to hear amazing love stories, get to know the couple behind the story, then capture it all in action!

Their engagement story started on a Friday morning, when Casey suggested they play hookie from work. Of course Janelle resisted as it was going to be a busy day at the office. However, Casey finally convinced her by reassuring her that he had cleared it with her boss. As they drove to wine country Casey’s voice started to come on through the speakers! It was him rapping to all his favorite 90’s rap songs. Janelle was dying cuz she has been asking him to do this for her for YEARS! Casey only raps when he lets loose and it is a side of him that she loves. For some reason I immediately pictured Vanilla Ice, 2 Pac and Bone Thugs! Oh man, the 90’s were amazing! Anyhoo, this was a major hint that something special was about to happen.

When they arrived at Calistoga Ranch, Casey gave her a brand new pair of hiking shoes so she would be well equipped for the hike he was about to take her on. At about 95% of the way to the top, Casey told her to stop and turn around at which point he blindfolded her for what felt like eternity. If other hikers would have seen her they would have called 911 to report a kidnapping! When Casey finally came back to take off the blindfold he turned Janelle around to find the remainder of the trail covered in red and white rose petals. They walked together to the end of the trail to see an amazing view but the best view of all was seeing Casey asking her to be his bride!

Meet Avina! She is the beautiful daughter of my beautiful wedding couple Sara and Will! I did their wedding a couple years ago and seeing them again as proud parents was a pleasure! I absolutely LOVE taking photos of my couples and their new babies because I get to see them in a new light. And these two are naturals at parenting! After spending an hour in their home photographing Avina, I can honestly say she is a little baby genius! She communicates on demand! She claps, stomps her feet, blows kisses, waves, throws her hands in the air like she just don’t care, and even eats cake like a lady! haha! Did I mention she walks? No? She walks. She is just too darn cute ya’ll! Check out some photos from her 1 year old session!

Not only has this beautiful family made me a HUGE fan of lifestyle photography, but I also picked up a trick or two on some bedtime rituals to try on Micah!  I was super excited when they asked me to come over to photograph their night time routine with their son Oskar, who is now 1 years old!  They have been doing a version of it since he was 3 weeks old, and no doubt it is effective as he was out like a light at 6:50pm no questions asked.  I met Lisa at Prenatal Yoga at Carmel Blue in North Beach.  She looked sooo familiar and we later found out that we were at Cal Poly at the same time!  We became fast friends months later after running into each other at the North Beach Festival beer garden with our babies in tow.  We now drink wine regularly together once the boys are asleep.  I am so excited to share these photos!  It was a true challenge for me to silently observe and creatively capture the story unfolding.  I am so used to directing for at least a portion of the shoot, that it was nice to just be present in the moments.  My favorite part was seeing them do everything together from feeding and bathing him, to reading together and signing him the last song before bed. Martin and Lisa are amazing parents to an amazing little boy!
