Oh soooo precious!
I just can’t stand it, I LOOOOOVE everything about kids! From the newest of the new babies to 18 month old (who does not want to stop to take a photo) to the preteen (oh boy), yes I love it all. Believe it or not, we get pictures and smiles, usually they are happier than when they came in. And yes, sometimes they make me sweat a little, but truly all worth it! It is worth it, because to have these moments and memories to keep and look back on is a gift. As parents we don’t want to forget a single stage, we want to remember how little they were with that silly smile or that orneriness coming through! All things wonderful to celebrate and to create beautifully!
Why choose Heirloom Portrait Design
EXCEPTIONAL CUSTOMER SERVICE
I really try to be a perfectionist in every way — especially in how I serve my clients. Email responses and image turnaround will always be speedy! If you have a special deadline, I will try to honor it at no extra charge. That’s how I roll — you are important to me!
ENDLESS PATIENCE & ENTHUSIASM
Kids do things on their own terms. As a photographer, I expect this! I’m not upset when your three-year-old has a meltdown or when your son asks to take a picture with my camera. I simply love kids; I have kids myself. They have taught me so much and lots of patience with gentle guiding goes a long way when taking pictures.
PROBLEMS SOLVED BEFORE THEY HAPPEN
With 18+ years of experience and many, many, many sessions under my belt, I’m great at anticipating tricky situations and resolving them in advance. For example, I know to let the bigger kids go first to show the 18 month old how it is done and it's not scary at all. Or even take the time to let the little ones warm up to their new environment, I move fast when needed as well as take a little extra time to make all happy!
I GENUINELY LOVE KIDS
I would have more if it was in the cards for me, truly love kids! When you work with Heirloom Portrait Design, you become my extended family. I’ll cheer with you when your baby graduates from kindergarten, and I’ll tear up if you move away. I’ve been photographing some of my clients since way back in 2001, and it’s been a joy and a privilege to watch their children and families grow.
