Introduction: Raw and true emotions are my specialty. Im here to make you come to life through my photos, and I’ll be your cheerleader the whole way. I believe there’s no such thing as a bad photo taker, just someone who hasn’t been comfortable infront of a camera. With me, you will forget I’m even there once we start taking photos, and that’s how I like to do it! I’ve been the designated photographer for family and friends my whole life, and decided that year ago I would start to do it for others!

Happy to recommend Heather Emma photography. Fast, reliable and professional service. She was super nice and friendly, I was new to the area and she was so helpful with suggestions for great shoot locations. We shot on Sunday and by Monday afternoon the pics were already done! Highly recommended.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I love to be able to connect before the shoot, and hear their ideas, preferences, and even your insecurities, so I can bring your ideas to life! Then, we pick a date and a spot or two and get to photo taking!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Been practicing photography for over 6 years, and been doing it professionally for 2 years. I’ve upgraded equipment since I’ve started, taken multiple courses on my camera equipment, photo styles, learned about all types of lighting, and equipped myself with the knowledge to bring the art I love to create to life!

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    The love of photography itself, I’ve always been drawn to it!
