Hi, I’m Heidi Young.
I am an award winning children’s portrait photographer, based in Waikato, New Zealand. Photographing children – I love it. Often when I’m around children, something clicks in my head and drowns everything else out. I have to take photos of them and their cheeky grins, grubby cheeks and especially those sparkling young eyes. If I could have my wish, each parent would have that perfect photo of their child – the one they come back to time and again, the one that makes their heart warm instantly, or gets them to burst out laughing. I have a relaxed and natural, unique style. I like letting kids, be kids – splashing in the mud, stick swords, and letting families laugh and play together – that’s what life is all about right?
A few facts about me
- My Husband and our three kids live on the family farm; ‘Gloryana’.
- For a portrait session I dress in black tops, cargo pants and gumboots – because I literally sit, lie or kneel in the dirt each time (devotion to getting the best shots!).
- I believe in laughing as much as possible…and hysterically, whenever deemed appropriate.
It’s my goal to give you a stress free portrait experience. Come on out, let your kids loose and just enjoy it. You will find that your children will really get into it and have a blast! Visit my Contact page so we can start planning your Boutique Country Portrait session – I look forward to discussing ideas with you and creating your new Family Art.
Bright and funky gumboots are welcome!
