Capturing Real-Life Moments 

Specializing in showcasing the unrefined moments of family life + unfiltered process of birth.

Imagine being able to look at a photograph and immediately be transported — to be able to recall in vivid detail the joy, the pain, the surprise, and all the powerful emotions that filled your heart.

Holding your newborn baby for the first time. 

Your son losing his first tooth

Your daughter’s first bike ride

Or the simple delight of a night in with the family

The messy, the beautiful, and all the moments in between bear witness to your family’s unique journey — and Heather Stanford Photography & Films exists to capture these precious snapshots in time.

My passion is showcasing those raw and genuine moments that bring memories to life.

It’s my belief that every family deserves incredible photos and videos to remind them of their legacy and strong family bonds.

Nothing gives me more joy than providing heirlooms that transport my clients back to a special memory.

When I photograph your family I’m there to capture more than just smiles and perfect poses.

I’m there for the real moments.




Those are all meaningful parts of you and your family’s inspiring narrative.

And when I’m not holding a new mama’s hand, supporting a family transition to life with a newborn, snapping photos of families (including my own), or editing videos, you can find me munching on tacos, sipping wine in the tub, or being the loudest supporter at my son’s soccer games.

the hugs | the kisses | the giggles | the tears
