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 dog named Blue. Our dreams of starting a photography business developed after we got married and started making homemade Christmas cards together. We have experience in a wide variety of photography, but today we have a special joy for capturing people with a zest for life ... entrepreneurs, athletes, musicians, influencers, entertainers, creatives, executives and more. Helping others succeed by telling their stories through photography is our passion.
We're an Air Force family, spending the last 19 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!
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 jamming on the piano, training for his next endurance event, or playing with the kids. He laughs the hardest when he watches Impractical Jokers or old episodes of The Office, and he absolutely loves the Turkey Tom sandwich at Jimmy John's (of course he would!). 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 dreaming up 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, learning cello and volunteering at our church. My happy place is cuddled up with a cozy blanket by the fire, playing games with family and friends. It reminds me of growing up in Duluth, Minnesota.. I also love to go for a nice hike and dining al fresco.

Oh by the way, we absolutely love dogs of all kinds, so bring them along to our home studio or to our next outdoor shoot.
All the best,
Heidi + Tom
