A SACRAMENTO PHOTOGRAPHER SPECIALIZING IN MATERNITY, BIRTH, NEWBORN, INFANT, CHILD, AND FAMILY SESSIONS.
I’M HEIDI, AND I AM A SACRAMENTO PHOTOGRAPHER.
I’ve been an avid photographer since my teenage years, and have honed my craft on my own children and now grandchildren since 1989. I’ve been a graphic designer and marketing professional since the mid-1990s. I decided to finally listen to my heart, and what friends and family had been telling me for years, and start a photography business. I live in East Sacramento, giving me access to some pretty gorgeous on-location spots for getting awesome photos for my clients and a studio that is easily accessible.
What you will want to pay attention to as you’re looking at different photographers is that we all tend to have our own unique style with shooting photos and editing them in post-process. It’s important that you select a photographer whose style you mesh with. My style is more a mixture of soft pallets and vintage filters. I urge you to look through my portfolio below to see if I will be a good fit for what you envision your photos to feel like. Which brings me to my philosophy of photographs…
I truly believe that looking at any particular photograph should bring you right back to the moment it was taken. It should evoke the feeling you had at that very moment. Probably my favorite types of photos to shoot are lifestyle. They’re more casual in nature — catching parents falling in love with their newborn, catching your toddler’s first drink from a hose during a hot summer day, or a jump in a mud puddle after a rain storm. To me, I’ve captured a moment in your life and preserved it forever.
I also wholeheartedly believe that the great photos should not sit as a digital file on your hard drive, probably never to be looked at again. Great photos should be displayed. Soon, I’ll be launching a service to help families order prints, canvases, frames, and albums.

Heidi did a photo shoot with our 11 month old granddaughter. Heidi was just incredible from start to finish. She was not only very professional but very tuned into the type of “look and feel” we wanted. She responded to my inquiry immediately and followed up quickly with answers to any questions we had. She arrived at the outdoor location with the perfect props for our little one. Heidi was just amazing with her ability to make our little one comfortable and capture natural photos that truly reflected her personality. What was impressive is just a few hours after the shoot we had three preview photos and just a couple days later a wonderful collection of edited photos which we still can not pick out our favorite because they are all outstanding. I highly recommend Heidi of Bullwinkle Photography if you want photos that your friends and family can only say: “Wow those are incredible photographs.”
