The Experience

What makes Glimpse different?

Plain and simply – It’s a full service experience.

As a luxury portrait studio, I am dedicated to providing you with the very best service and helping you to create finished products for your family to cherish for generations.  From personalized attention to providing everything you need.  Below you will find a list of examples.

Complimentary Consultations

Whether on the phone or in person at my studio in the Steam Plant building downtown, we will work together to create the session you’re dreaming of.  I will do whatever I can to bring your vision to life.

The Extras Are Included

Having a studio allows me to have everything needed for the session.  Your maternity session includes hair and makeup services, as well as the choice of gowns to wear from my closet.  And newborn sessions include all the props, wraps, and outfits.  All you need to do is bring the baby.  I also am known for using fresh floral or greeney in my newborn sessions when at all possible.  If you have a favorite that is in season, I will do my best to accommodate.

Unique Heirlooms

I work hard to ensure that the products I offer are unique and archival.  Products that naturally become heirlooms for your family.  These are not products that the consumer market has access to.  They are produced in professional print labs with the highest quality inks and glues, and sold only to professional photographers.  You can see them in detail here.

The best of both worlds

Though I specializing in creating finished products for you, I also offer digital files for archiving and sharing on social media.  Each of my collections includes digital files that are printable up to a 11×14.

Personalized Attention

After your session is complete, you have the option to view your images that same day, or come back to the studio about a week later to see them.  I will prepare a personalized slideshow of your images for you to enjoy and then walk you through choosing the perfect heirloom and selecting the images to create it.  I hold your hand through the entire process giving as much or as little input you may need or desire.  Check out what Jordan had to say about her experience.

“I absolutley loved my experience with Heidi/Glimpse Photography. First of all, anyone who can make you feel beautiful and confident at 37 weeks pregnant is a true professional and exceptionally gifted. But it should also be said that I thought this may be slightly out of my comfort zone as I’m typically a jeans and sweatshirt kind of girl, but that was not the case at all. Heidi has an eye for capturing beautiful images of this truly incredible, unique and short chapter of life that I will cherish forevermore. I am an over thinker by nature and not one who typically chooses to go in front of a camera; but with Heidi’s coaching and tidbits I felt completely at ease. Her feedback and encouragement put me at peace and I was able to embrace the shoot without overthinking.

One of the things I truly despise about getting pictures done is trying to do my hair and makeup; I do my makeup the same day in and day out and it’s quite plain. Yet for pictures I want something a bit more unique/special for the occasion but just end up feeling frustrated and over-fussing the morning of my pictures… with hair and makeup included in this package I was able to just sit back and take in the whole experience. No stress, no fuss. That alone makes it worth it for me. I got exactly what I wanted; something that was more than my everyday look, but where I still felt like me. (But let’s be honest, a bit more glamorous.)

If all that weren’t enough, Heidi found a truly breath-taking location. I’m not exaggerating when I say I felt a bit like a snow princess… how many people can say that at 9 months pregnant?! I would hands down recommend Glimpse Photography to anyone looking to capture truly irreplaceable images of this beautiful chapter in your life, because it truly is that, beautiful…as crazy as pregnancy is. Heidi creates a wonderful experience, which goes so far beyond receiving keepsake images. (Which, by the way are absolutely beautiful and I love.) Heidi is incredibly talented in capturing maternity and newborn photos. It’s incredible to be a part of. I think the only thing you would regret would be NOT booking with her.”

This all sounds great, but how much will it cost?

You can check out my pricing on the investment page.  But before you go, I want you to know that I totally understand that budgets are a real thing.  Your memories, however, will be gone if not captured at the moment.  Because I believe everyone deserves to have these precious memories captured for generations, I do offer payment plans to help accommodate for each person’s budgetary needs.
