My First Client!

Sandy 5

Thanks for promoting me up from amateur status, Sandy!
I had so much fun chatting and snapping photos.
(And I'm thankful the weather held out for us!)
It is certainly a privilege to have such a beautiful subject to photograph.

Um, how is it possible that this is your first pro shoot? I simply cannot believe that people aren't knocking your door down for your pics!! Really, your pictures are SO fantastic, Heidi!

These photos are great!

Sandy said...

Heidi, I had so much fun with you today! The photos look so great, I don't know how you did it but I'm thrilled! Thank you so much, Sandy

Beverly said...

Heidi, your photography is beautiful. Someday I'm going to have to make the trip (short--yeah) to have you do me or the kids or both or the whole family. I tend to not take many pictures so having a nice photo shoot once a year is a nice thing to do. Plus, I never have anyone take my photo. Just me. These are just lovely.

Heidi said...

I would love to take your photos, Susan! It is crazy that we haven't gotten together yet, considering we aren't all that far apart.

I think moms rarely get their photo taken alone, and that's a shame. Sometimes we need to feel like beautiful women in our own right, you know? Plus, I think it is a wonderful heirloom that children will value later in their lives.

Maybe I'll do a series of just women photo shoots. I'm liking that idea!

Can I volunteer to be your next Mom subject? I'm in Corvallis...

Of course, I'd happily volunteer my whole family as well. You've got quite an eye!

Heidi said...

Absolutely, Diana! Email me at and we'll see what we can work out!

I love your photography! You do a great job! Keep up the good work! I am also dabbling in photography! I love taking pictures that will last a life time!
