I met Heather about 4 years ago while seeing some of my patients on the postpartum ward at (Mt. Sinai West) Roosevelt Hospital on 59th street. As I was visiting with my patient, I saw Heather photographing the baby next door, and I was mesmerized. The kid didn’t flinch! She would put her in these beautiful costumes and poses, all while this little angel was asleep. She’s truly a baby whisperer. Even more so, she put new mama and all the family members at ease. She kept the session lighthearted yet efficient. I knew then that, should I have my own child, Heather was doing the portfolio.
Well, about 3 years later, I had Gabriel. Heather was the first person I asked about on postpartum. She has also come to my home on several occasions and has done amazing work for my family. She’s gifted with all creatures big and small. My dog Mango even loves her! She has her work hanging not only in my home, but in my office hallways too. My colleagues can say the same.
Heather provides an all-important gift to families. She helps them preserve memories of their most precious times together. Anyone would be thrilled to work with her.

“Thanks so much for making our photo-taking experience to enjoyable! Phoebe actually had fun smiling for the camera. You made it so easy for us, all we had to do was show up. You were great with Phoebe, she really responded well to you. We love the pictures – and so do the grandparents. Thanks again!”

“Thank you so much Heather for your wonderful photos of Roscoe. Your shots really captured how adorable he is! We had so much fun working with you. You really put us and our baby at ease and the results really showed! We used one of your shots for our Christmas card and we can’t even count how many compliments we received. Those pictures are something we will really treasure for many years. Thanks again”

“Heather is an excellent photographer for kids. We had a newborn photoshoot with her in the hospital for our twins and I still can’t believe that those pictures turned out so beautiful. She has lots of lovely and good quality props and knows well how to handle the infants. I am impressed by her collection of dresses, headbands, bows, baskets, hats and other props that she gets for the shoot. We had another photoshoot with her at 7-months and she again did her magic. She has immense patience and is in no rush to finish the photoshoot. She makes you feel so comfortable, is friendly and understands how to keeps the kids engaged. She is prompt in sending the pictures and does a terrific job with editing and light. I would highly recommend her.”

“Having Heather photograph my 3 year old daughter was a wonderful experience! The delightful rapport she has with children was evident immediately and put both me and my daughter at ease. The results were beyond my wildest dreams and I had such a hard time choosing from such excellent photos! Thank you so much!”

“We received our baby photos today, they are great! Heather did such an amazing job! I have no idea how she was able to capture Macklin smiling so much! And our new daughter looks perfect, she really captured some great images, it will be a difficult selection process.“

“My new little family had the pleasure of working with Heather this past December. The shots she took of my little boy were breathtaking, and we used them for his birth announcement. We both have huge families, and almost everyone has framed your photo in their homes. I am still constantly told how amazing your photos are. My birth experience was not the best, and your photo (and my favorite shot in particular) really captured the way I want to remember the birth. Thank you so much. We wish you all the best.”

Heather is an amazing photographer and I have had the pleasure of working with her on multiple occasions. She took beautiful new born pictures of both of my children. Heather’s skills as a photographer are outstanding, but what truly makes her fabulous is her the warmth and love she exudes towards her little subjects. She has an amazing way of calming and soothing little ones. The statement, “she is a natural” sums it all up. She is also wonderful with parents and doesn’t get overwhelmed, stressed, or annoyed by having lots of family around her while she is working. Thanks to Heather, I have the most beautiful pictures hanging on my wall.
