Heather is photographer, producer, collector, midcentury design devotee, lover of patterns + pop culture, a fan of contemporary + modern art.
She is profoundly inspired by patterns + the order of things. She has been known to wander the rows of a book store for hours, feeling up every book she can get her hands on. Paper is an obsession. Wes Anderson, Todd Oldham + Minoru Yamasaki would be who she would like to dine with every evening, can you IMAGINE the conversation?
A nature lover + tree hugger, hiker + cloud watcher, pit + pug owner, an AMAZING dancer and a good singer (at least she thinks so). Her love of flowers + plants have changed the course of her career from wedding photographer to full on botanical wonder woman.
So it only makes sense that the love and passion she has for her craft transcends the obvious capture. She is committed to photographing real, meaningful and powerful images. With a sense of humor and a genuine interest in the authentic spirit of people, places, petals, plants + paper ( and YES, petals, plants + PAPER, have spirits).
Her imagery has been described as thoughtful, modern, cinematic + timeless.
She aims to live her life in a sea of these same adjectives!
In 2015 she was selected as the official photographer for the Flower House Detroit project. Her book on the project is currently for sale nationwide.. Her work has been featured in galleries, in national media + lovingly hanging on the walls of clients for years. After much thought, she has decided to take the step to offer her work outside of the metro Detroit area + make prints available online for purchase.
