investment

indulge in the

A quick Google search for a newborn photographer in Salt Lake City may leave you feeling frustrated and confused.  You may be wondering why there is such a huge range of pricing between photographers. You may wonder if all of the professional products are really worth the extra investment.  You may be nervous about an uncomfortable sales presentation. 

I hear you and i've got your back!

After being in business for over 10 years and dealing with hundreds of clients, I know what clients value in a photography session. 
Sessions at Heather Pickett Photography are structured to give you exactly what you want!

Working with a true professional means you will have a thorough and thoughtful experience from start to finish. Training and credentials should be up to date and on point.  Client communication should be polished and respectable. Technical aspects of photography should be nailed every time.  Retouching should be careful and artistic. The safety of your newborn should never be in question.  That's the kind of professional you'll get with Heather Pickett Photography.

fast turn around

Is printing your portraits important? Absolutely!  Do you get a significantly higher quality products by printing through a professional photographer?  Hands down!  Is wanting the digital images a faux pas?  No way!  As a consumer of photography myself, I understand the value of having the digital files for my personal use.  The digital files are absolutely available for purchase.  I've combined the best of the print and digital worlds by including the digital files with the purchase of an album.  Talk about a win-win!

I know you will be so excited to see your portraits from our session together.  I only take a few clients every month so that I can provide you with amazing customer service and quick turn around times.  Your hand-edited digital images will be ready for viewing only one week after our session - that's more reliable than the next episode of This Is Us!

I want you to be able to budget and plan for your session, which is why I make all of the pricing known up front.  I promise there will be no hidden costs or pressure to purchase more than you are comfortable with.  However, in terms of pleasant surprises, I may have a few tricks up my sleeves...

professional products

Let's just say that not all photographic products are created equally.  I have scoured the industry and spent thousands of dollars researching which world-class, professional-level products I want to offer in my studio.  I have incredibly high expectations and you can be sure that products ordered through the studio will be of the highest available quality.  The best part is that you don't have to pay overly marked-up pricing.  I offer these products at special rates because I want you to know what it is like to truly own a piece of artwork.  You'll be hooked!

What woman, especially a pregnant woman, doesn't want things specifically tailored to simplify her life in some way?  I will walk you through the process and make things as easy as possible.  At the same time, I want to know how it will work best for you as an individual with specific and individual needs.  Do you want your Design Consultation done in-person, over the phone, or in an e-mailed questionnaire?  We will do what works best for you. I want you to feel heard, valued, and appreciated in the process.  Let's work together to make your session an enjoyable and memorable experience!

worth it

I can promise it is

I know it may feel like a significant investment.  I promise you it will be worth every penny.  The details of your newborn fade so quickly and, speaking from experience, it will be a time in your life you'll wish to have back - at least in small doses. 

Let's work together to capture these details and feelings in beautiful, artistic ways that you can enjoy forever.

In the meantime, hand your husband a paper sack for some deep breathing, and let's get you on the calendar.

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.
