HEY, I'M HEATHER


My journey in the world of photography and the arts has been both fulfilling and dynamic. I'm Heather, the proud owner of Heather's Photography Company, residing in the charming town of Kernersville, North Carolina. Beyond the lens, I'm a devoted wife and mother to a spirited 5-year-old, finding joy in the simple pleasures of life.


My artistic roots trace back to my graduation from UNCSA with a BFA in Theatrical Scenic Painting in 2014. Attending the School of the Arts marked a pivotal and rewarding chapter in my professional journey. Following graduation, I embarked on a nationwide tour, showcasing my artistic skills by painting backdrops, props, and interior sets for theatrical productions, including contributing to Skrillex's Halloween tour across America. After nearly a year on the road, I returned to North Carolina, where I undertook the comprehensive painting of the entire set for The Prop Shop at the Kalideum Children's Museum in Winston-Salem. Additionally, I applied my artistic talents to create several murals for clients' homes and businesses.


Throughout these diverse projects, my passion for photography flourished, leading me to introduce family photography services in 2014. Balancing this creative outlet with my painting endeavors, I discovered a profound love for capturing moments through the lens. Specializing in a wide range of family-centric events, from engagements and weddings to newborn sessions and pet photography, each photograph represents an opportunity to freeze time and encapsulate the enduring beauty of these precious moments. This dual pursuit has become not only a profession but a source of immense joy and fulfillment.


A significant milestone in my professional trajectory occurred when I expanded my services to encompass wedding photography. Within a single year, I adeptly captured the essence of 98 weddings, and this strategic pivot has led to a substantial and sustained growth in my business ever since.


Another pivotal chapter in my journey unfolded as I ventured into the realm of Real Estate Photography. Drawing on my background in Scenic Painting and Design, I bring a unique perspective to showcase homes in their best light. Collaborating with over 30 Real Estate Agents across North Carolina has been an honor, and I'm excited about the prospect of extending this collaboration to new partners.


What I love most about my work is the ability to freeze moments in time, whether it's the joy of a family celebration or the timeless beauty of a home. It's a privilege to be part of these stories, and I'm enthusiastic about the creative opportunities that each project presents.
