It can be frustrating to feel like a buying experience isn’t hitting your needs on the head. In looking for a photographer, we can often feel frustrated when packages feel generalized and templated. Investing in the documentation of those you love the most shouldn’t feel like you need to fit a certain mold. That’s why, at Heima Photography, booking a session is never a cookie-cutter experience. In fact, at the very beginning of your experience, we’re going to take the time to chat in depth about the vision you have for your session, as well as what you envision doing with the portraits we’ll create together and where you want them to live in your space. 

You are never bound to a cookie-cutter type of session either. Your session should look the way you envision, with the people you envision being together with. Whatever you value documentation of, let’s do that, because investing in beautiful portraits is for the purpose of celebrating and cherishing the moments in life you want to remember forever. You don’t need to follow any recipe or Pinterest checklist, you just need to be you, doing you with those you love most. This is what will make your portraits timeless. This is how you document your legacy. 

The family in the session below booked me to document their extended family last summer. All the grown kids were in town, and they wanted to update their family portraits - both as nuclear families and extended. Time flies by way too fast when kids are growing up and loved ones live far away. So why not get everyone in the frame and stop time just for a moment, so it can be remembered always? Check out this whole family session in Red Deer from the days when the temperature was warm and friendly, the trees were full of green and the kids could run jacket-free! 

Like this Red Deer session, if you live outside of Calgary, the answer is yes! We can still work together! Whether I come to you, we meet at an epic location in Drumheller, Banff or Waterton or you come to the Heima studio (launching later this spring/summer! Psst…you can follow along on instagram @building_heima), it’s my mission to tailor your photography session experience to fit your vision (not my vision!) so you have gorgeous portraits to live on in your space and family for years to come.
