A Palm Springs Family Session – The Taylors

11.20.14 | Portraits, Families & Kids

I have had the absolute pleasure of photographing this great family at least once a year since before their oldest son was born. So so lucky to have clients like these- I just love them so much! Here they are in their new, gorgeous Palm Springs home, which is totally my dream home, by the way.


They are the cutest family, and they will be adding another little boy to their group next year!palm-springs-family-session-002

Major fiddle leaf fig envy right here! I mean, the whole living room totally makes me want to never leave.palm-springs-family-session-003 palm-springs-family-session-004 palm-springs-family-session-005

This kitchen? I mean…palm-springs-family-session-006 palm-springs-family-session-007 palm-springs-family-session-008 palm-springs-family-session-009 palm-springs-family-session-010

When I arrived at their home, AJ (the oldest and my little buddy) excitedly said “Heather, I want to show you something really cool!” He immediately led me into their hallway where displayed in these gorgeous frames with large mats were all photos I had taken of their family over the years. Kristin said “We call this the Heather wall.” I was totally overwhelmed. What an honor to have my work so beautifully displayed in their home, especially in such a prominent way! I got a little emotional, actually. This is what it’s all about for me and it was such a special moment. Print and frame your images, people. Don’t let the photos you take live only on your computer.palm-springs-family-session-011

This is the boys’ amazing bedroom complete with that fabulous Orla Kiely wallpaper!palm-springs-family-session-012 palm-springs-family-session-013

Pete made these bunk beds for his boys. How amazing is that??palm-springs-family-session-014 palm-springs-family-session-015

It wouldn’t be a shoot of their family without a shot on the bed in their master bedroom. We’ve pretty much done it every time I photograph their family.palm-springs-family-session-016 palm-springs-family-session-017

This plane was built for the boys by Pete’s dad. What a talented family!

Thank you, Taylors, for such a beautiful shoot and for being such amazing people I feel lucky to call clients and friends. This shoot was particularly special to me. Love you guys!

A SmogShoppe Wedding – Jessica & Logan

11.6.14 | Wedding Photos

One of the things I love most about the clients I work with is that they have a variety of styles and aesthetics. I love working with people with more glamorous wedding styles, and I love working with those that have more rustic styles- and everything in between. I love variety, and I love that my work speaks to people who have various vibes because that allows me to get creative with each shoot and really play off the energy and style of each couple. This variety is inspiring to me and though I want my work to look consistent, I also want to let each wedding bring out something new in me and how I shoot. Even though on their face many weddings are similar, each wedding I shoot is drastically different from the next thanks to the energy the people bring to their day.

While SmogShoppe has been around for a while and is a popular, fun little venue in the Los Angeles area, I had never shot there so it was fun for me to work in this space. It has a lot of style on it’s own and it created the perfect atmosphere for Jessica & Logan’s wedding day. This wedding was especially fun for me to shoot because Logan and I are friends from a while back and I knew a lot of the guests.

Here are my favorite images from their wedding day!
