Salt Lake City Newborn Photography | Meet Heather

Salt Lake City Newborn Photographer

Heather Pickett, RN, CPP


. . .

I wear a lot of different hats in my life – photographer, nurse, chef, chauffeur, and a host of others, but my most prized and endearing role is being a mother.  I remember sitting in the hospital with each of my newborns and staring at their little features.  I wanted to take in every wrinkle and flake of newborn skin so that I would never forget their tiny details.  I remember how they smelled after their first bath.  I remember watching my husband hold them for the first time and falling in love all over again.  These are the moments that I want to bottle up and treasure forever.  My oldest is now in elementary school and reading on her own.  It sounds so trite, but it really does go so quickly.  My hope is to help every mother capture these fleeting moments with their newborns; to create heirloom artwork that will bottle these treasured moments for generations to come.  Your session with Heather Pickett Photography and the accompanying album or wall art is your first investment in treasuring your newborn – an investment that will truly increase in value with every passing year.

A few more things you may find interesting…

I love the smell of a freshly opened package of Pampers diapers.

I have a thing for boys in bow ties.

I worked as a Nurse in the Pediatric/Cardiac ICU at Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah.  What an amazing place, where miracles truly happen daily.

I keep trying to love running.  Sorry Nike – I just CAN’T do it!

I’m 5’1” on a good day.  My maiden name was Little so you can guess how that went down in elementary school.

I am drawn to texture: peonies, linen fabric, letter pressed paper.

The summer after high school I toured Europe as a performing violinist.

I am a perfectionist through and through.

I love going to the dentist.  Seriously.

I buy quality of over quantity.

I like to be the best at whatever I’m doing.

I was the first Certified Professional Photographer in the nation to be certified on a purely newborn portfolio.  There are no other photographers in Utah that specialize in newborns and are a Certified Professional Photographer.

I love chubby toddler hands.  Nothing is sweeter.

I, obviously, love babies.  I’d have babies for the rest of my life if I could, which is why I am so grateful I get to spend my time cuddling and loving on yours!
