Hi there! I love warm hugs, a big snow fall, and wearing flip flops year round. Welcome to my little slice of heaven, and I owe it to my husband.
While photography had been a passion of mine ever since I took my first class in high school, (I even went on to pursue Fine art in college but ended up following another passion of mine, working with students with special needs), I never took the plunge. My husband knew that owning my own business was a dream I had always wanted to pursue. Due to a whole host of fears, I was never able to take that plunge alone.
Those fears ended when my (then) fiancé set up Heather Elizabeth Studios as a birthday present. On the morning of my 30th birthday, an email popped up, with a link to follow. My husband had purchased a domain for my website. Oh the tears, you know the ones… the big fat happy tears that just won't stop.
I am a born and raised Cincinnati native. Through my business I have been blessed to not only meet some of the best families in Cincinnati, but am also lucky enough to now call many of those families friends. My husband often lovingly teases me that I know everyone in Cincinnati… I wish!!
I am an extroverted wife to a wonderful husband. I am momma to three incredible kids, Isabella, Eli, & Samuel who are growing up WAAAYYY too fast! I love celebrating life and loving on the people in my life. Our family loves Jesus and we chase after Him with all our heart. My husband is the love of my life and my kids are my world. I love cuddling on the couch with a good cup of coffee & a blanket. My morning coffee dates with my husband are the highlight of my week.
During the week, you will find me working with juniors and seniors at a local high school.
On the weekends you will find me all over Cincinnati on shoots, hanging out with my kids, or serving the community. I am a glutton for punishment and still remain a Cincinnati Bengals fan even though my beloved husband has persuaded our kids into rooting for the Steelers. I try not to hold that against him.
I am a sucker for a great love story and am known for crying regularly out of happiness. During family sessions you'll find me starting a session by sitting on the floor playing with your kids. I share all of this with you, because I want to know your family, and capture your family's story.

Good morning, detectives! Collecting donations for the Policeman's Ball? We don't have balls. I honestly have no response for that. Need I remind you, Mr. Spencer, what happens when you interfere with a police investigation? Uhhh... The case gets solved?
Remember, Dad, you treat a woman like a person, then a princess, then a goddess, then a person again.

No pepperoni? Really? Plus the blatant disregard and utter criminal lack of ham and pineapple. What kind of a good faith negotiation is this? I mean, this is a hostage negotiation! Well, I don't care if you're not happy with the ingredients. Put the pizzas down and walk away!
Told you so. Touché. You can't touché yourself. Sure I can. Your bad. It's not my bad. You can't "my bad" for someone else.
Our beautiful new studio is located at 4303 Smith Rd. A few short blocks from the Rookwood Pavilion Shopping Mall and right off the Smith Edwards Rd. exit. I also love shooting in our amazing city at either sunrise or sunset. We will work together to find the perfect location for your session that suits your personality and vision!
All outdoor sessions are scheduled during the most beautiful times of day, just after sunrise or just a few hours before sunset. Studio sessions are scheduled during the day at your baby's happiest time of the day (usually early morning or right after nap time).
All our sessions include immediate downloads of your high resolution images in your gallery. Mini sessions include downloads of 20 of your favorite images from your session. Full sessions include approximately 45 edited images in a private online gallery for immediate download of your images and print release. A USB drive is included with any additional print order and includes a signed print release allowing you to print as much as you like.
