I woke up this morning to see my page has reached 2000 followers!!! Man I remember being excited a few years ago when I got to 100. 😄
Hello to all the newcomers, I'm so glad you're here! And for those that don't know much about me except that I'm a photographer, I wanted to introduce myself... I'm Heidi, a girl who in the last couple of years has learnt to dream big and jump at chances.
When I left school I studied business & became an accountant. It wasn't what I dreamed of doing (who honestly knows what they want to do with their lives at the age of 18??), the job kind of picked me and as a school leaver I was just excited to be earning a salary. I do love business but it turns out I enjoy running my own business, rather than crunching numbers for others.
The creative soul in me won out when I found photography and today I am a full-time wedding & portrait photographer. I am so passionate about documenting love & life with my camera and I love the true connections I get to make with the people I photograph.
But beyond telling you how passionate I am about my job, I'm also a girl who owns a lot of shoes, loves bubble baths, enjoys a good pinot, loves being with family & friends and has made it her mission to read more books in 2017. So fire away with recommendations for good books to read!
Although our business name is Heidi Horton Photography, it's very much a team. Matt is my husband, business partner and second shooter for weddings. He's also the best cook in the house, loves creating things in his man shed and is the kind of guy who will make friends wherever we go. And Henry is our furbaby. He is my office companion during the week, and also enjoys playing fetch, destroying toys and has a thing for frozen peas.
My Facebook page is somewhere you'll find sneak previews from shoots, my favourite wedding photos, links to blog posts, and some of the cool stuff we create here in the studio. And on my website you'll be able to find out lots about us, our business, what we stand for, even information if you're planning a wedding or thinking of updating your family portraits and of course all the beautiful weddings & portrait sessions we've ever done are on the blog.
I'm so grateful you're here and a part of this journey with me. Here's to continuing to dream big and jump at chances! x
