Hi, I’m Heather.
I am currently an artist, a student, a creative, and an explorer. I’m a little bit of everywhere, back and forth between Washington, DC and Portland, Maine. I don’t have a favorite place, but I think it’s because I tend to leave a little bit of me everywhere I go, every time I leave.
I am, in short, infatuated with living a beautiful life. While I realize beauty is subjective, I’d like to think there is beauty in everything– the way people smile when they look at someone they love, watching little frogs and tadpoles swim in little tide pools, and the smell of ramen before the waiter slides the bowl into your hands.
To me, beauty is being able to capture breathtaking moments as they happen. I enjoy a certain sense of spontaneity and freedom when it comes to my own work. I lack structure in the artistic process because I work to capture authentic moments in time rather than staged ones.
My favorite part of being behind the camera though, has to be getting to know people in a way I’ve never known them before. As a human, I find everything about the human condition fascinating. It is why portraiture and love are two of my favorite things to photograph. My aim is not to curate an unrealistic and hyper-retouched image, but rather, an image that is genuine, authentic, and conveys the qualities that make each person truly beautiful at heart.
I see beauty whenever I step behind a camera, and I hope that I can share that experience, feeling, and same love I have for the world– with you.
