"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 you, your story, and your entire experience.


I love that photos evoke memories of a moment in time and, at an early age, noticed that other sights, sounds and memories from when the picture is taken are part of that memory. So the experience you have leading up to the session, the day of, and with your photographer becomes equally important.


Life goes by fast and memories fade, so I provide amazing pictures AND an awesome experience to all my clients so they can forever treasure each precious moment.



Starting at $3150 - Elopements start at $1000


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. My guide has portrait checklists, tips, and more to help you every step of the way. (Guide Below)


On the wedding day, I always dress professionally 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.


All coverage includes digital files, unlimited consultations, professional album design, and tons of other options.


About 5 weeks after your wedding, I post the photos to your online gallery, send your USB, and complete your album design.

What to Expect: Weddings (Video)


Starting at $250


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 weeks after the session, we view the photos together (in my office or over the phone) and then I post the photos online so you can easily share them with your family & friends.

Senior Experience

Starting at $250


Much like my portrait sessions but with an optional changing tent, hair and makeup.


My changing tent makes changing outfits easy at any location and thanks to my wedding connections, I have great deals with a couple AMAZING local makeup artists if you want to have the ultimate pampering experience for your session.


About 3 weeks after the session, we view the photos together in my office and I show you all the amazing wall art and album options I offer. Then I post them online and share your favorites on social media so you can tag and share with family & friends.

NEWBORN Experience

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.


Before the session, we meet so I can show you all the amazing wall art and album options I offer, go over ideas & props, and then I send you a few tips to help you prepare beforehand.


Newborn sessions can take place in my Newport News office but typically are done in the comfort of your home. I do lifestyle sessions using your home as the backdrop or set up a backdrop, fake floor, baskets, wraps, and use family heirlooms in a 6x8 ft. space. I block off 3 hours for each session so we can take breaks as needed & don't overstimulate your new baby.


About 3 weeks after the session, we view the photos together (in my office or your home), order your birth announcements, and then I post them online so you can share them with family & friends.
