GET TO KNOW THE PHOTOGRAPHER
Hello and Welcome! I'm Heather that makes up Heather J Photography! I'm so excited that you found me and because I believe that getting to know my clients is the #1 way to ensure an awesome experience, I'd love to tell you a little about myself!!

- I’ve been married since 8-25-18. (Best. Day. Ever.)
- I don’t have children but we do have two spoiled puppies named Case & Colt!
- I live in Wooster, Ohio and I love to travel!
- I love decorating our house!
- I’m a certified medical biller & coder!
- I’m a huge Nikon fan!
- I started my photography business in 2017.
- I’m the photographer, editor, email writer, and blogger!
- I love creating beautiful images but more importantly, I love serving clients to take memories that will be viewed by you, your children, and your children's children!!
Heather takes the most amazing pictures but she is just like her pictures... AMAZING! I’m so happy with our one year anniversary pictures!
- Amanda & Dalton Hammer
Heather has a very good eye for back drops and color! She is also aware of the overall look of our placement and helped place us in the best positions! Also, a big plus...she was very patient with my upset 1yr old and still manage to grab some great shots of him! She was very quick as well on getting my images to me! We will definitely be using her for future shots!
- Ashley & Grant Conwell
Heather is beyond amazing! We did a spring photo shoot with a 5 year old when it was 40 degrees outside and Heather kept her completely happy and engaged the entire time! Has amazing patience too! Our pictures were taken at our farm and Heather knew exactly what backgrounds had potential! The photos turned out stunning! She even captured incredible photos of our daughter with a newborn calf which was definitely not easy! But absolutely adorable and turned out better than we ever hoped! Would recommend Heather to anyone and everyone!!

I'm a firm believer in oneself taking an over abundance of photos. I love being able to capture a special memory in time that will let you remember all the feels and smells in the moment once you see that image. Whether it be your mom's perfume or your dad's laugh. An image can say a thousand words to one person, but the person that was there being captured will remember what the image meant to them. That is the reason of what I do. It allows me to capture special moments of my clients so they can enjoy being with family, or remembering the good ol' days when a 30 year old looks back at their senior photos, to being able to remember what your newborn looked within one week of being born. These are the moments I live for. Don't worry I have someone to capture these memories for me as well, but I am so glad that this gift of mine can help others relive that moment in time.
The process is really simple. First step, is to arrange a date and time that works best for both of us (more so you) and a location. Next, is to look over the contract and make your $50 nonrefundable retainer (that goes towards the balance) to secure the date! After the session, you will get to see sneak peeks from our time before getting all your images back 6-9 days after our time together. Your images will be delivered via online gallery called Cloudspot. Here you will be able to download, share, and even order professional prints. You do receive a print release, which you can download from the gallery, to take to a 3rd party if you choose to do so. I don't recommend Walmart, CVS, Drug Mart, or any other department/grocery store. I can't guarantee the color will be consistant or even true to what you see in your gallery.

What's the difference between 3rd Party Print Labs that what you use?
The quality is what makes the difference. When they say you get what you paid for, it's true in this case. The ink and paper that is used by Walmart or print lab in a grocery/department store doesn't use the highest quality ink and paper, therefore you don't get the quality, color, or longevity in your images. Who wants to see the same image in perfect condition when they first purchased the image. I know I do, so choose my print labs have that quality and that's what I deliver!
How far in advance do you book?
For portraits I book out as far as 1 year in advance. You're probably thinking "Holy cow batman, that's far!" It is, but there are some seasons that are absolutely crucial to grab spots in and thats...Fall! A huge season and I always get 100% booked in that season via portraits and weddings. I book as soon as 4 days, it could be sooner if the schedule allows.
What do we do if it rains?
No one likes a rainy day when your trying to achieve portraits! There are options when this arrises. We either bring the session inside, if the schedule allows we can change the time in the day to a more less rainy time, or we may reschedule. Rescheduling due to weather is allowable, if I feel that the weather will put a damper on our session I may need to do this. As I know it's not accommodating since you put so much effort in outfits, sometimes mother nature just isn't in our favor. It is Ohio of course and the weather can change in a sec.
Do you have any props or do we need to bring any?
As I don't keep a crazy amount of inventory in props like signs, decor, etc. I do carry props that do the job, aka for Newborn sessions like lighting, blankets, crates, and some outfits. I do have props for my mini sessions which are only available 2-3 times a year and are only used then so if your session you would like props check with me to see if I have it and if I don't you may bring your own (if the location allows it).
Thank you so much for considering me to capture your memories! If you’re interested in working with me, the next step is to pick a date and time! Let me know if you have any questions.
