Life comes First…. we have payment plans!

We all know that life can throw things at us and often does. Sometimes we have to choose  between putting money into our savings account or buying something that we really want.

Believe me, with two kids, a wedding in a few weeks and a recent fight with cancer, I Beauty Fact (1)understand life getting in the way of what you want to spend your money on.

There are days when we have the money and there are days when we have to make choices. For that reason, I have created a flexible payment plan that can be used for any of my portrait or boudoir packages.

“Whatever you want to do, do it now. There are only so many tomorrows.” – Michael Landon

We should all be able to focus on the things we want and if that means making payments every week, bi-weekly or monthly in order to get there then that’s what we should do. To view our payment plan please click here.

I am more than happy to customize the payments to accommodate everyone’s needs. Please know that your images will not be released to you until after you are payed in full. (You will be able to see all of your images at your viewing and ordering session.)

Mama & Me Mini Sessions to Benefit Moments House

Cancer can be a very scary word but cancer is just a word. However, the disease and what it does to people who have it, and how it effects them, is very real. Moments House is a organization that was formed to help those who have been diagnosed with cancer.

Some of you may know and some may not.IMG_3074 In October of 2015 I was diagnosed with Non-
Hodgkin’s Aggressive B Cell Lymphoma. The lymphoma was in my chest and had grown so large that my life was being immediately threatened. After a few months of treatment I  found out that I was and still am in remission. During that time of treatment life changed in many ways. Moments House was there to help me, along with a few other organizations including my church. Moments House helped me pay my car insurance and bought Christmas presents for my kids. (That is something that is hard to admit as a very independent person.) They have also helped so many others in Berkshire County in so many ways.

I aIMG_3288m forever grateful and I want to give back to them.

The things I have always known, but feel even more now, is that you need to never take the moments in your life for granted, never stop making memories and cherish the moments that have shaped who you are today. So as we approach Mother’s Day,  I thought of a way that we can all help Moments House and capture a few moments with the people that we love.

Often moms are the ones taking the pictures of their kids and the only images they have with their kids are selfies. Other times moms are too self conscious to get in front of a camera. I am here to say that I can help with all of that. I know how to make everyone look and feel their best in order to capture the best portraits for you to cherish for years and years to come.

 

 

I will be hosting Mama & Me Mini Sessions this month with 65% of the proceeds going directly to Moments House to help them secure their forever home. One of their members, who recently passed, had a lovely home that would fit their needs as their current lease ends in December. They need help to purchase this house and eliminate their biggest expense, so they can continue to do even more in our community.

We are booking session for April 29th & 30th. Click her to book your session or contact us at info@hcachat.com to get a certificate to give to your mom for Mother’s Day. (Certificates must be used in May or June only.)

All sessions will be held at 128 Fenn St. Pittsfield, MA. You can schedule your in person viewing and ordering session on the day of your session or by calling or emailing us. Images will only be available online in your gallery after your in person viewing session.

Thank You all for your Help!

Love & Admiration, Heather

The Glamorous Jenn B!

I had the great opportunity to photograph the Glamorous Jenn B the other day. Now I have to admit…. I am a bit bias. Let’s just start there.

Jenn Quote

Jenn is the girlfriend of my “Not So Little, Little Brother.” (Whew I got that off my chest.) I had Facebook messaged Jenn a few weeks back asking if she would be interested in doing a glamour session with me. She herself is a student of photography and a beautiful woman with hair that makes me jealous.

Jenn was so willing to model for me that a few days later she sent me a picture of a “little black dress” she was thinking about purchasing for the shoot. The dress looked amazing on her! It hugged her curves in all the right places. I was excited to hear she purchased it even before I had been able to respond to her.

On the day of Jenn’s shoot she arrived with her 2 outfits she brought and with a “naked” face. She was ready for her make-up. Whitney, the professional make-up artist (and a client of mine), chatted with Jenn letting her know what her plans where for the make-up and asked Jenn and my opinions. We all agreed in a “natural” look. We all laughed and smiled as we chatted, as women always do, and had a great time getting ready for the session.

When  her makeup and hair were ready to go, Jenn changed into her black dress and we began to shoot. We took lots of pictures, with different angels and posing and I moved the lights to flatter her. There were times when Jenn was thinking she might not look the best  at the angle I was shooting at and was a bit self-conscious but when I showed her the images she was amazed.

Before the shoot I had arranged with Garden Blossoms Florist, on First Street in Pittsfield, for a floral headpiece for Jenn. She did an amazing job and Jenn looked like a goddess with the beautiful head-wreath on.

After the session, when I showed her her pictures I was so happy with how much she loved them. Jenn told me, “I am in LOVE with my pictures; the lighting, the poses, they’re just beautiful!” But just as I am bias about how glamorous Jenn is she may be a bit bias on her opinion of me. I promise though, I didn’t pay her or bribe her in anyway.

 

We strive to always be ourselves and happy during a shoot, because of this our clients feel comfortable being themselves and have a good time. “The best thing about doing the shoot was that it was so fun and care-free, I didn’t feel awkward or uncomfortable, and was able to enjoy myself even if I don’t like being in front of the camera! There wasn’t anything I would have changed about doing this shoot, and I would absolutely do another one!”

“To anyone that is considering doing any kind of shoot with Heather, I highly recommend it. She is so charismatic and amazing to work with, she made the shoot silly and enjoyable. I can’t wait to do another one!”
