Life is Beautiful. It’s worth Capturing.
I want to be the one to capture it for you. The Art of YOU. Your family. Your wedding. These amazing moments in your life that you never want to forget. I won’t let you forget.
I am a mama to a really cute little girl. I love coffee. I love to laugh. I am a portrait photographer and I love to capture people. I’m not sure what life would be like if I didn’t get to photograph and create….. I don’t even want to think about it…. I feel beyond blessed that photography is my life and career.
Let’s share some laughs and create some memories. You can see more of Heidi’s work at
Jenna Stoll is a contemporary family and children’s photographer in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Her passion for photography goes back well over a decade and she is excited that her long time hobby turned into Songbird Photography. In her personal life, Jenna is best described as a blue jean loving, kiddo-chasing mom. She and her husband are proud to be called “mommy and daddy” by their two beautiful and rambunctious little girls. Her daughters both joined their family through the amazing journey of adoption; the first from Vietnam in 2008 and the second from China, in 2010. You can see more of her work at www.songbird-photography.com.
We met Jenni back in 2008, she’s taken some of our our favorite family pictures. Jenni is “a wife, and mommy of three fun, very energetic, and beautiful children, who inspired me to start this journey of photography back in 2007.
I photograph in pure natural light, giving your child enough space to explore, while I follow, in hopes to allow real life portraits to just happen.”
For examples of her most recent work… and of course a few posts here and there of her own little ones, visit her site here.
Sophia Rose is a wonderful photographer based in Vancouver, Washington, right over the bridge from Portland:
“I have always loved photography but it wasn’t until the birth of my first child that I got really serious about learning the ins and outs of using my camera and capturing really beautiful images. She inspired me to capture every moment, not just the special ones. I have been so blessed to connect with families around special moments and every day moments in their lives while expressing myself as an artist.”

Rochelle is a self-taught photographer based in Las Vegas, NV. “While I’ve always been passionate about the arts (specifically film and photography), it wasn’t until my daughter was born that my desire to take better photographs was fueled and my love for photography grew to another level. As I witnessed how quickly she was blossoming and growing, I wanted to capture as many memories of her as I possibly could; to stop time and to cherish the fleeting memories. I love how photography allows for the encapsulation of even the simplest of moments (silly grins, thoughtful expressions, laughter) that might otherwise have been forgotten. This has been my inspiration to continue perfecting my art and cultivating my business. My vision is to create images that are not only fun, beautiful, and of quality but that also preserve moments in time.”
Gary Estime, a self-taught artist and photographer based in Atlanta, GA. “I began my artistic journey as a fine artist specializing in oil painting. Overtime, I developed a strong passion for photography. I utilize my passion for fine arts as a way of expressing my creativity through photography. My work has been described as fun, refreshing, energetic, thought provoking and hauntingly beautiful. Through constant research of new techniques, and attention to lighting, composition and detail, I hope to inspire others as I’ve been inspired by the many photographers who were able to capture my attention in a single frame.”
Shawna Ansley is a talented photographer and we’re huge fans of her work. “I always had an interest in photography as I constantly had some kind of camera with me since summer camp as a child. I really started getting into photography by taking photos of my first love, my daughter Azaleah. She now does commercial work for many boutiques online via etsy. My wonderful neighbors loved my work and asked me to do their family photos, which is how I started photographing professionally.”
