I love taking photos, always have! I remember the point & shoot camera my Mommom had & I used to take pictures all the time... I remember how much I enjoyed it. I never thought in a million years that I would pursue photography in my adulthood. I started with film then eventually went to digital. It was like second nature to me. Learning the craft satisfied my craving for art. Whether it be editing images or learning new techniques. It also helps when I get capture some beautiful people too. Bonus is when I also get new friendships out of it too. :)
I think about all the people I have had the pleasure of capturing. That moment with them that is captured will never happen again. Think about that! I had the privilege & honor to capture memories for them. For that I am forever grateful!
I was going through my own family images & organizing them & I couldn't help but reminisce. Not only do I reminisce about that moment but what was happening around us. There were also moments that I totally forgot about. How about that, a moment captured & we will forever have those images to remind us.
With non-essential businesses closed due to Covid-19 , photography being one of many doesn't mean we can't take photos around us. Go out & capture some beauty that's around you. Whether it be your loved ones that you are staying at home with or flowers in your backyard. You don't have to be a professional photographer to take photos. Take a stroll through your town & whip out your cell phone & take pictures. Ten years from now, you will look back & be glad you did!
Have fun & keep smiling :)

I have been slowly working making some new changes. First, I wanted to let you know that my website & email has officially changed. Take note of the new url (www.DebraHeschl.com). My new email is firstname.lastname@example.org. I have been waiting for a long time & the right moment to make the changes. Long over due! ha!
Secondly, I also wanted to share as I create new designs, including Branding, Logos & much more, you will have the option to buy at a reasonable price. I will also have freebies from time to time. I will post them here & on my facebook page.. If you have something you are looking for specifically, please email me & I would love create your one of a kind designs!
Lastly, Lifestyle photography & Portraiture is my heart & I am very much in-love with it, However, I will also be adding Storytelling sessions to my repertoire. I am so intrigued with capturing the moments that happen on daily basis that are often not noticed. A storytelling session is abit different than Lifestyle. With Lifestyle, I would spend an hour with you, & with Storytelling, I would spend 3-4 hours with you. Spending that time with you will be me hanging out with you & your family. Stay tune for some Strorytelling sessions posted in the next couple of months. I am very excited & I hope you will join this journey with me!
For more information on Storytelling sessions, go here for more information or you may contact me to speak to me directly! I can not wait to tell your story! :)
What a gorgeous & crisp day it was to capture this beautiful family! The leaves were so colorful, I have not seen the leaves this colorful in so long. Miss "S" & Miss " M" were too cute! You can see how they adore their big brother. They had a blast exploring & running. Miss "S" made me work for that beautiful smile of hers though! Ha!
Look how sweet they are!
This was the first time I have ever been to this location for a session. Mel had told me about it & I was so excited to see it. So Mel, Billy & their 2 girls & I came to this gorgeous location at the Appleford Estate. Can I tell you how gorgeous it was? I was in awe on how beautiful the setting was. Not to mention, this family was so wonderful to capture! I had the pleasure of capturing them now for a few years now. I adore this family. They made this session so much fun & what a gorgeous family they are too!!
These two lil beauties were so cute. They were a delight to capture :) And of course I had to capture Mel & Billy together!! :)
I adore this family so much! I have had the pleasure of capturing them several times before. It was such a perfect fall day! Perfect weather & the light was delish!! Look at these sweet captures :)
This location at the Harriton House in Bryn Mawr could of not of been more perfect to capture this fun, loving family!
Big sis just loves her brother to pieces!
Alittle about me ♥
Photography has always been second nature to me...I love knowing that I can freeze a moment that would be easily forgotten until you have it captured to never forget!
