What makes Glimpse different?
I have taken much time and money to invest in training and safety to ensure we have the smoothest and safest session as possible. I have everthing you would need for the session, including props, diapers, headbands and wraps! Plus, I have all the expertise to walk you through the best prep and wardrobe options. I have been a photographer for over 20 years and I am eager to serve you and create beautiful memories for you.
When booking your session we will have a phone consultation to ensure we are all on the same page before booking. We will work together to create the session you’re dreaming of, and 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.
I work hard to ensure that the products I offer are unique and archival. Heirlooms are not required, but suggested, as I know how easy it is to throw a USB in a drawer and never print the memories you have invested in. The products I offer 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 some of them in detail here.
The best of both worlds
Though I always suggest printing heirlooms, all of my collections include digital files for archiving and sharing on social media.
“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.”
