“Heather is an extremely talented photographer. We hired her for some newborn and family portraits and could not be happier with her work. She is extremely warm and friendly and makes you feel comfortable to just be yourselves. It feels more like you have a friend over who happens to have a camera as opposed to having a photographer over for a photo shoot. I was a bit nervous/stressed given the unpredictable temperaments of our toddler and newborn, but Heather was fantastic with both! Our toddler instantly loved her and Heather was patient and totally understanding when we had to take nursing breaks for our newborn. I think her warmth and ability to make us feel so at ease really come through in our photos. We love that they are just us – natural, candid, not forced. She captured some wonderful memories for us that we will treasure forever.” – Jen M.

“Heather has photographed our kids several times and also did an inter generational shoot of our extended family. Her work is expert at capturing sincere moments in a beautiful way. She is a pleasure to work with from the planning through the final proofs. The quality of the photos have always been more than we expected.” – Sonja R. and Mike L.

She captured some intimate moments between my family and I that are truly stunning and will be wonderful keepsakes for years to come. My family and I will continue to use Heather Mariano Photography for our yearly family photos as well as any memorable events we want to capture.” – Megan M.

“My family and I did our first photo shoot with Heather Mariano this past December for our Christmas cards, and it definitely won’t be our last! From the start I knew Heather’s photography style matched what I was hoping for after looking at the photos on her website, but the shots she took far exceeded my expectations. I was truly impressed with Heather’s abilities to capture the personalities in our family including myself, my husband, our son, and our dog Sally (who is impossible when it comes to pictures!). Heather made us feel so comfortable, we never felt stiff or forced to pose during the photoshoot. I’ve always believed in the value of professional photography, especially with someone who makes your family feel comfortable. Heather was so great with our baby and dog. I would recommend Heather to anyone looking for beautifully captured moments of their family. She is amazing!” – Lindsay T.

“I’m so grateful to Heather Mariano for capturing so many beautiful moments of my family and children. I appreciate her style – candid and natural. These are the memories that I cherish and want to remember always. We have several of her photos framed in our home and guests frequently comment on how beautiful Heather’s photos are because of the authentic expressions she catches. I highly recommend Heather Mariano Photography!” – Jackie S.
