To help you maximize the value of your effort preparing and investing in a newborn portrait session, we encourage every client to walk away with something printed and tangible to enjoy. We know from first hand experience that printed pieces in your home will become some of your most valued possessions, especially as the years pass.  That tiny newborn that used to fit in your arms will, before you know it, be heading off to Kindergarten, then High School, and eventually leave your home.  The memories are fleeting and printed pieces will help you treasure the cherished moments with your newborn.

Heather Pickett Photography offers only the finest products created with the highest degree of handcrafted expertise and skill. Available products include fine art prints with museum grade framing, heirloom quality albums and coffee books.

We understand that, at first glance, a custom portrait session with Heather Pickett Photography may seem like quite the investment.  I can tell you that the money you spend today will be insignificant twenty years down the road as you are reminiscing about your newborn while you flip through their heirloom album.  It sounds so trite and clich√©, but the time flies by and you forget their tiny details faster than you realize.  Make the necessary sacrifices to capture them at their most innocent and perfect state by a true professional.  After all, you'll never get this time back.

you deserve it!


get to know

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.

Before I became a photographer, I worked as a Registered Nurse, for which I am still licensed. Working as a Registered Nurse in the Pediatric & Cardiac ICU at Primary Children's Hospital, Labor & Delivery at St. Mark's Hospital, and Maternity & Newborn Nursery at Intermountain Medical Center, I have been with families on the happiest day of their lives, and also the most tragic.  I have seen, first hand, how beautiful and fleeting life with your loved ones can be.

Capturing these beautiful and fleeting moments is one of the primary reasons I became a newborn photographer. In fact, I am the first Certified Professional Photographer (CPP) in the nation to earn that merit by exclusively using newborns as their subjects. Being a CPP ensures that I excel at the technical and aesthetic aspects of photography. It means I have a solid knowledge of how to use light correctly - even in difficult lighting situations. You can rest assured that your images with be both technically correct and emotionally powerful, which means they will be a timeless work of art for you and your family to enjoy.  

All three of my core-identities have perfectly combined to create Heather Pickett Photography where we celebrate the beauty and power of motherhood by cherishing your miraculous newborn. 

My hope is to help every mother capture these fleeting moments with their newborns and to create timeless, heirloom artwork that will bottle these treasured moments for generations to come.
