Tell us a little bit about your session!
I have wanted to photograph a dancer for quite some time. I had a vision and the perfect location, I just had to wait to find the dancer and the time. I found my dancers through my daughter’s dance studio who were interested in doing the session with me, then we just had to coordinate a day that worked for all of us. After months of cancellations due to schedules and weather, we were finally able to make December 1st work for all of us. We thought it might snow, but I knew I could work that into my vision, but when we got to our location the weather was amazing, and it was even quite warm. The girls did amazing at the whole session, and we had so much fun. This was my first time photographing dancers, but it felt so good to be creative and to finally get my vision onto photographs. It has fueled my creativity within my photography and given me a new spark. I would love to do more sessions like this when I get the chance.

Tell us a little bit about your session!
I have been photographing this family since their oldest was born and I have completely fallen for them. I love their laid-back approach to life and especially to raising a very energetic boy who is not quite two years old. I photograph all of my newborn sessions in-home and having an older sibling always adds such a fun element and energy to our session. It may start with a little stress from mom and dad, trying to wrangle their spirited toddlers, but it only takes a few minutes for me to show them how I want to connect with the unexpected twists and turns, that’s what makes a session speak to me in all the beautiful ways.

Tell us a little bit about yourself:
I am a stay at home mom of a soon to be 4yr old boy and an 11 yr old girl. I am a wife to my wonderful husband, we are coming up on our 1 yr anniversary. We eloped in Yosemite National Park last April. I enjoy the outdoors, love photography, hiking, family, games, working out, and eating healthy.

How did you get started in photography?
When my daughter was 1, her father had gotten me a Canon 35mm camera in which I took photos of everything with. I had always loved photography, and had always wanted to pursue more in my hobby just never had the money. When my daughter had become 5, I finally was able to purchase my first DSLR. 3 years ago, after the birth of my son I taught myself how to use manual mode and continue to learn daily. I shoot everyday life and love the challenge of finding the light.

Tell us a little bit about your session!
The Gold Hope Project photographs pediatric cancer patients. One of our volunteer photographers, Karyn Olsson, worked with Camilia and her family. Camila is lively, spirited, determined, so courageous. She loves playing dress up, playing with her dolls, and with her older brothers. She’s also a tough cookie!

In the spring of 2016, Camilia was diagnosed with Wilms Tumor and thankfully her prognosis is good. Her cancer is favorable and has a high survival rate. Her family is hanging on to every inch of that hope. Although her cancer, pathology results, and so far her treatment have all been favorable, it’s still cancer. Malignant cancer that is, and that in itself is a tremendous misfortune and a nightmare to say the least. To see your child suffer and yet you as a parent cannot change anything is beyond painful. Childhood cancer affects all aspects of your life-emotionally, financially, and makes you questions your spiritual beliefs.

One thing her family is grateful for is that Camilia is only 3 years old and has no idea what is happening to her. Because she is so young she remains at home where she’s supposed to be. She doesn’t question why her hair is gone and she doesn’t care. As you can see, she brings a smile to anyone’s face who meets her.

Areas of the world you Serve:
lifestyle, newborn, family and weddings

Tell us a little bit about yourself:
I am a mama, and a wife, living life in good old New England. I almost always have my camera around my neck, running from place to place with my kiddos, trying to balance being in the moment but also capturing the moment. I am super laid back, almost to a fault at times. I talk, a lot. I love people, I laugh, a lot, and loud. I am a sunset loving, obsessed photographer, and I love capturing moments, and feelings and the not so posed lifestyle images always mean the most to me. This is seriously my dream job, and I have worked super hard to get here, but have enjoyed every single minute of it. Photography is just a part of me, it is who I am, it has my heart for sure and always will.

Heather Vaillette -  Heather Lynn Photography  - Featured Photographer #inbeautyandchaos #lifestyle #newborn #family #wedding #inhomesession

How did you get started in photography?
My husband surprised me with camera about 6 years ago, I was scared to use it at first! But once I got over that fear, I don’t know if I ever looked back. I loved learning all about my camera, and the art of photography. I read and practiced on my kids every moments everyday, I was literally obsessed, (I might still be!) I completely taught myself how to shoot on manual, I winked say it wasn’t easy, but once it clicked, I couldn’t believe it took me that long to get it! I still love learning and continue to grow and develop as an artist every day.

Heather Vaillette -  Heather Lynn Photography  - Featured Photographer #inbeautyandchaos #lifestyle #newborn #family #wedding #inhomesession

What genre do you shoot?
Newborns, lifestyle family and newborns, family, and weddings. I only do a few weddings a year, because I love all my other sessions too much to give them up.

Heather Vaillette -  Heather Lynn Photography  - Featured Photographer #inbeautyandchaos #lifestyle #newborn #family #wedding #inhomesession

Who or what inspires you?
My kids inspire me, my crazy chaotic life inspires me. For photographers I love Sarah-Beth photography, My four Hens, and the Blissful Maven. I also love Elise Meader, she is local to me and started about the same time I did, and I love seeing how amazing she is and how hard she has worked too.

Heather Vaillette -  Heather Lynn Photography  - Featured Photographer #inbeautyandchaos #lifestyle #newborn #family #wedding #inhomesession

What kind of camera bag do you carry and what’s in it?
I have the mustard yellow shutter bag…I have a D750, an 85 1.4 and a sigma art 35. Simple. That’s it. Plus a few random toys, a water bottle, and snacks. I love food and I am a mama, I have food hidden everywhere.

Heather Vaillette -  Heather Lynn Photography  - Featured Photographer #inbeautyandchaos #lifestyle #newborn #family #wedding #inhomesession

Three random things about yourself:
I am obsessed with super intense workouts, it’s my therapy.
I am so not shy and will talk with anyone and everyone.
I love dogs, like the type of person that pulls the car over if there is a cute puppy walking down the street, kinda person.

Heather Vaillette -  Heather Lynn Photography  - Featured Photographer #inbeautyandchaos #lifestyle #newborn #family #wedding #inhomesession

Best piece of advice you’ve received?

BE authentic, don’t worry what others are doing all worry about what you are doing. And to never give up, whatever your goals are, always strive to achieve them. It truly believe you can do anything you put your mind to.

Tell us a little bit about your session!
When mom first brought this little guy in for her session, she was nervous he wouldn’t cooperate. He normally loves to be snuggled up close to her. Well, I think you can see that he was more than happy for his session! He has a classic Winnie the Pooh themed nursery, so we incorporated some of his favorite Pooh friends in his session. Lots of smiles, drool, and sucking on toes later, and we got some really special 6-month milestone photos for this little guy!
