Hey! I’m Heidi!

Heidi Marie Photography started out just as a casual photography hobby for me after I had my first son ( I mean, who doesn’t want awesome photos of their kids, right?!) and it just continued to grow from there! I love photography! I can honestly say it is a true passion of mine. I like learning about the mechanics of my camera and lenses. I enjoy learning new cool editing tricks to bring my images to the next level. But most of all, I love working with my clients! I feel like it is a privilege to document their lives, family, emotions and special events. It is amazing to be able to be a part of their wedding day or even the birth of their child. I honestly feel like I have the best job ever!

My family is made up of; myself, a hunky hubby (I reckon anyways!) and our two sons. We live on a lifestyle property on the outskirts of Rotorua. I love spending time as a family at our little slice of paradise and would be happy to stay there every day…. but the mortgage needs to get paid! 

I love to spend time in the garden and gym. I love sunsets. I love delicious food and wine. I am a little bit obsessed with indoor plants. Love having a good old belly laugh. But most of all… I appreciate the simple things in life! We live in a world that is quick paced and demanding. Sometimes we all need to take the time to appreciate the simple things. That’s another reason why I love photography! The simplicity of capturing one moment in your life. You can look back at the photo and go right back to that moment. Once our memories have faded, all we have are photos to treasure. We can be reminded of how our kids eyes twinkled with delight when they smile or how little they all once were. 

I have to say that wedding photography is my favorite type of photography. I think I am a bit of an adrenaline junkie and love the quick pace, high pressure and beauty of the day. It is so lovely to be around the passion and love between two people and all of their friends and family!

In saying that, I also really enjoy all other types of photography! Maternity, birthing, new born and family photography are always so special. I love photographing those times in peoples lives that can go by so quickly. Then, for the rest of your life, you can treasure those moments.

Flick me an email or facebook message to book in your photoshoot or even to have a chat about different photography options.

Professional photography is an investment. The value of your images grow as each day passes. Invest in remembering special moments. I promise you won’t regret it!
