Heather Essian bio picture
  • Hey there! I'm Heather, wife to Jim, Pastor of The Paradox Church, and Mama to two beautiful girls, Harper and Hollis. I'm a Jesus lover, crafting lover, and really a lover of all things creative! I've had the pleasure of photographing lovely people for over 13 years now! I've recently started a fun new journey designing baby and toddler clothing. Stay tuned, I'm sure I'll be sharing some of my designs soon!

    This blog is a place for me to share my current photography work, my creative work, as well as some of my personal journey. I have a heart to encourage and love on other women. I hope this will be a place where we can all share in our creativity as well as learn a little bit about Jesus and His goodness. I hope you'll come back and visit often!

Wallberg Family

Every summer my little family travels up to MI to visit family…we stay in a family cottage on beautiful Higgins Lake.  It’s a dream! The water is crisp and the most beautiful color of  blue.  If you didn’t know better you might think it was the sea.

While I was there I had the absolute pleasure of photographing my friend, Elizabeth and her sweet little ones.  These photo capture their love and will always remind this sweet Mama of what held things together amidst a difficult time.  I love that about photos…They have a way of redeeming hard seasons for us and reminding us of the good times.  Capturing the most important things in life, that being those we love most. <3

Lewis Family

I love the photos of the Lewis’ family that I captured on the beach near the lake…some of my favorites from this session! So natural and airy.  My favorite kind of photo…

An interesting story about this sweet family; Our paths crossed years ago when Jenny’s husband, Colby, and my husband, Jim were in Spring Training with the Detroit Tigers. When Jenny contacted me to photograph her family I realized this after remembering their names. What a small world!  Now Colby has gone onto play with the Rangers and Jimmy has gone onto be a Pastor.  My how things have changed for us!;-)

As you scroll down you will find many of  little, Elizabeth. She’s such a doll! I couldn’t help but to share a bunch of her sweet photos.
