Meet Heather

Hi! I’m Heather, and I love what I do. I have a beautiful studio in Edwardsville, IL with my Willow & Mohr partner Nichole, and we serve many clients across the St. Louis Metro and beyond.

Interesting fact about me – my educational background is economics, coupled with a Masters degree in human resources management from Washington University in St. Louis. I first picked up a camera as a way to reconnect with the joys of life and to express myself after I experienced a deep loss in my family. It helped me to remember how precious life is, and I fell in love with the idea of  never taking even the smallest of moments for granted.

I believe your photographs are a love letter to your children. By showcasing your images in your home, you will be reminded on a daily basis of the adoration you have for your family, as well as the adventures you share together.

Your photo session will be a professional, yet laidback experience. Throughout my career I’ve learned the art of capturing personalities, connections, and emotion, all in the prettiest light. My relaxed approach ensures our sessions remain stress-free and free flowing, like they should be. I will take the time to learn about your family, so that I can capture what makes you unique.

My areas of specialties include maternity, newborn, baby’s first year, and families.

Contact me anytime to discuss your photographic needs. I’d love to meet you!

Why choose me?

Parenthood is the most monumental adventure any person will ever experience. As a parent I understand how fleeting time is. I’ve given birth to 4 amazing babies. However, our first, Madelyn, was only with our family for a short time. It was that loss that taught me documenting the dearest moments of life and, most importantly, documenting love.

I am a visual storyteller. I’ve photographed hundreds of babies, and been fortunate enough to be recognized in national publications such as People Magazine and US Weekly. I am also a teacher of other photographers, including both 1:1 mentoring, traveling workshops, and via my breakout course at Click Photo School, a world-renowned photography educational organization.

My photography style is organic, fresh, and emotional. I can promise you to provide top tier service from your initial inquiry, until the time you are enjoying your beautiful artwork.
