Welcome to my blog!
I would like to share with you all how Butterflies of Hope Photography by Heather, LLC came to light!
A little about me:
I am a wife to my high school sweetheart, Ron and we are celebrating 25 years of marriage this year! We have 3 amazing children, Whitney 22, Katelyn 19, and Lane 16. I graduated as a Registered Nurse in 1994 and worked full-time as a RN for 21 years.
My love photography began when I was a teenager. Always snapping photos and running my film to the nearest developer. I could not wait to get the photos back to see what I had captured through the lens. After my children were born, my love for photography grew. I could not take enough photos of them. Later, I began scrapbooking with my best friends and became obsessed with trying to learn everything I could to improve my photography.
I began shooting at sporting events, family events and really anywhere we went. I fell in love with documenting our daily lives.
People began asking me to take photos for different events and one thing lead to another. Before I knew it, I was a full time RN and photographer. Life was crazy busy, but I loved it!
A life changing event:
On May 29, 2014, my world was rocked. My sister, Lauryn, suddenly passed away from a myocardial tunnel at the young age of 38. She left behind 4 children ages 2 - 18 years old. It was then that I realized how short and unpredictable life is. I knew that I wanted to follow my passion of photography and capture memories that my clients would forever cherish. There is nothing more important than family. If I would not have captured my niece being born or many of those events that happened in her first two years with her mom, she would not be able to visually see the connection between her and her mom. In the photos you can see her moms love for her as she laid eyes on her the very first time. Photos are magical and can contain stories and bring back sweet memories to last a lifetime.
I am now a full time photographer, capturing memories to last a lifetime!
