"Heather was absolutely amazing!

For a bride who is not the best at planning, Heather managed to know exactly what I needed and wanted. She was extremely professional and made sure that we got all of the pictures I wanted and more.

I am so happy we chose Heather."

The HHP Experience is all about capturing love, laughter, and tears of joy.


Wedding Photography

Starting at $2999 - Elopements start at $1250


You only get married once and I truly want to help make it amazing and stress-free! So whether you need help with vendor referrals, the timeline, or how to keep your mother-in-law happy, I'm here to help.


On the wedding day, I wear a suit (I like to be professional) and bring an assistant and/or 2nd photographer, backup equipment, smile till it hurts, and typically spend most of the day with you, capturing all the great moments you will treasure for generations. And I can even create a slideshow to view AT the reception!


4-5 weeks later your photos are all retouched and we can have a Grand Reveal Party in my office (or over the phone) to finalize your album design and order wall art.

Whether it's you and your dogs, or a family of five, congrats on looking for a creative & fun way to capture this fleeting moment in your life!


Portrait sessions are fun! Mostly outdoors and filled with laughter (and sometimes a few bubbles or balloons ;).


Before the session, we will go over ideas, props, and I send you a helpful guide with tips to help you prepare. The day of I usually bring an assistant to help me, along with my bag of tricks, and may play a few games or make silly faces & noises to get a smile.


About 2-3 weeks after the session, we view the photos together (in my office or over the phone) and then I post your favorites online.

NEWBORN Portraits

Starting at $500 - includes 25 Birth Announcements


Welcome to parenthood! A mother myself, I know you have your hands full getting ready for a new baby and I want to make things as easy and stress-free as possible.


So I offer in-home newborn sessions.


Before the session I help you prepare for your little bundle's arrival with a few tips and an in-home consultation to learn about what you are looking for and how I can help so all you have to focus on the day of the session is you & your new baby.


The day of your session I can use your home or nursery as the backdrop or bring a small backdrop, fake floor, baskets, wraps, and add in family heirlooms. I block off 3 hours for newborn sessions so we can take breaks and move around as needed.


3-4 weeks after the session, we have a Grand Reveal Party (in my office or your home) to order your birth announcements and select your favorites to order and post online.
