Session Details

Sessions with Heather Richard Photography are always relaxed and easy-going. The focus of the session is on the genuine, natural organic feel that you and you family have.

Newborn Sessions: $350+

Newborn sessions are my joy!  I love the tiny fingers and tiny toes and the pure sweetness involved in each session.  Newborns are best photographed in the first 15 days of life while they are still very sleepy and easily “posed”.  Be sure and book your session in your second or third trimester to ensure you get a spot on my calendar.

Families: $250+

As your family grows, and grows up, old memories fade, but new ones are formed.  Your images will remain timeless to you and your family.  Let me help capture those memories for you and your family.  Family sessions are fun.  I want to capture you and your kids as you are.  The emotions and personalities of each person and the sheer joy of childhood.

Maternity: $150+

Pregnancy is a stage that goes by so quickly, and can be one that is hard to remember once that sweet baby is here in your arms.  While it is not always a comfortable stage for everyone, it is a time that you will soon forget.  Be sure and document this time in your families life.

Weddings: $2500+

While I don’t take a lot of weddings, I will do a few each year.  If you are interested in my wedding work/information, I would love to talk to you more.  This is a special day in your life.  You deserve only the best with your photos.

All Sessions Include:

  • A personalized consultation by phone or email to plan the details of your session
  • Personal guidance in clothing design and access to some studio wardrobe pieces for maternity and babies
  • 1-2 hours (or up to 3 hours for newborns) with Heather capturing all the small details of your newborn, child or family
  • 20-25 carefully edited images in a digital download with a print release.
  • Custom, professional printing of your fine art products at a discounted price if ordered no more than 1 week after receiving your digital images.

I try and avoid a lot of formal posing, but I will be there to help you out.  You will always leave with the standard “everyone look at me and smile shot” because let’s face it, that is what your mom wants to hang on her wall.  May not be
the exact shot you want to hang up, but we have to make mom happy too!  Once we have the “everyone cheese” shot, I will gently guide you into natural positions that are flattering and also showcase your love for one another.
When it comes to toddlers and little kids, I avoid threats.  They are not necessary.  No, really!
I’ve worked with kids for a while and I have 3 of my own.  I know what makes them tick and what helps them to feel comfortable.  The tricks to make their personality shine.  All it takes is a little time and trust.  
Once we have a connection, natural expressions are easier for them.
  My style of photography is not for everyone.  I don’t force a child or newborn to do anything they are not comfortable with.  I prefer to keep it simple, natural and organic.
My business is about people, genuine connections and love between parents and children. 
If you are ready to capture some meaningful, loving, natural photographs of your pregnancy, your newborn or baby, and/or your family,
or if you just want to chat and ask some questions before you make your decision, email me or call or text 828.291.1694.  I look forward to hearing from you!
