Photo Shoot Giveaway!

Meet Heather Nan Photography. You probably have yet to hear of this little lady, but with enough hard work and heart you will, more and more. At least that is what she hopes for.
Heather is just about the most pleasant & lovable girl you will ever meet. She became interested in photography more seriously her last year in college after focusing all of her studies prior in Anthropology. She has since found that her anthropological background and passion for photography were one and the same...she totally digs people. "I revel in capturing the moments between the shots. I strive in sharing the essence of my clients along with their pure beauty".
We have to say that it shows. Rather than painting a pretty portrait, Heather's photos are intimate and genuine and tend to reveal character rather than just their physical nature. This seems rather important in children's photography, when personality traits just begin to emerge.

Being new to photography as a business (established in October, 2008), Heather is still discovering her place and particular strengths within the vast photographic world. Granted she spends much of her time shooting children, she appreciates all opportunities and is setting goals to shoot more weddings in the future. Getting married?
Heather is gifting one "We Chirp" reader with a free single portrait sitting and a 11 x 14 print from the session ($115 value). Know a little one aching for a spot in front of her lens? Or a senior in high school needing to capture this important moment in time? Follow the rules below, do a good deed and hope for grand winnings!
*Portrait session must take place in the Salt Lake Valley or surrounding areas, or if you live in Idaho...we can talk*

Heather is also offer 25% off her sitting fee if you book a session before the end of April. Need an Easter portrait or a "loving that it is almost summer" portrait? Inquire and book via email through heathernanphotography.com and mention "We Chirp".

Heather's photo's remind me a something in a magazine or on a card. She does a wonderful job and is very talented. Her photo's have so much detail in them, and yet they are soft. I would recommend her to anyone.

Heather Nan is the BEST! And my kids need to get their pics taken because they are too awesome for words. And too beautiful for words and too hilarious for words.

carrie said...

My kids and Chicago need Miss Heather to visit. What better reason than for a photo shoot right?

Gretchen said...

Heather's pics are amazing! I know that taking photos of children is difficult- but she makes them look almost angelic! The way she makes their eyes shine is incredible.

Laura Salmons said...

My family neeeeds heather's eye. We truly do. My offspring are all real purty as it is, but dang if she don't make every child look like a little angel straight from heaven. bless her camera-totin' little heart.

Julianna said...

My family could really use a good photo shoot. There are only 4 of us. If she's not doing families, just little faces, I have a darling 4 year old and a darling almost 3 year old. They both need their pictures taken desperately.

Tiffany And Co. said...

I think my little 8 month old needs to have his eyes captured by this amazing photographer. I want to remember how big and blue they are at this stage in his life and I think she knows all the good photography tricks :) She is quite amazing!
