Hey there and welcome to the blog!  I'm Heather, a lover of Chik-Fil-A, the ocean, anything with stripes and all things ballet!  I am a dance and portrait photographer based in the Baltimore, MD area.  This blog is where I share my latest photo sessions, tips on photography, some of my amateur attempts at home organizing and decorating, and just some fun things we want to remember as the ordinary days of family life go by. This blog has become a scrapbook of my children's lives!  Take a look around and you might see my little girls all the way back in 2007, as well as the progression of my photography business since then too!  So glad to have you here and I look forward to chatting with you!
