Tom and I are college sweethearts from the Midwest now living in the Northern Virginia. We're Mom and Dad to 3 kids (2nd to 10th grade) and a new dog named Blue. Our dreams of starting a photography business developed after we got married and started making homemade Christmas cards together with our pictures.
We're an Air Force family, spending the last 18 years in a variety of states from Colorado to Ohio, California to Virginia. Along the way, we've met some incredible people, and we've learned to adapt quickly to new situations and simply jump in head first. Life is too short to sit on the side lines ... a philosophy we extend to our photo shoots! Today we have a special joy for on-location portraits, headshots, families, events (weddings, engagements, birthdays) and commercial photography.
Tom's love is behind the lens, working with clients to capture them in the moment. If he's not taking pictures in our studio or on location, you'll find him playing boogie woogie piano, flying his drone, or training for his next endurance event. He laughs the hardest when he watches Impractical Jokers or old episodes of The Office, and he loves Jimmy John's (me too). Tom finished a 50 mile foot race with his buddy from California this past fall so who knows what new adventure he'll undertake in 2018.
My love is in the details before and after the shot is taken. There is nothing more exciting than coming up with new concepts for a shoot and making the photo come to life during post processing. I keep busy as a stay at home mom, balancing the needs of our 3 kids, growing our small business, and volunteering at our church. My happy place is playing board games by the hot fire with a cup of coffee and a cozy blanket ... during a blizzard (of course!). I think it reminds me of growing up in Duluth, Minnesota. I also love to get out and go for a nice hike with family and friends, followed by dining al fresco.

On a final note, we absolutely welcome dogs of all kinds to our home studio or to on location shoots. We're dog lovers so we get it. They are part of the family!
All the best,
Heidi + Tom
