My name is Heather Barlin, a.k.a. Venusgirl. I spent my childhood years in the suburbs of New York, observing nature's wondrous beauty and the City's varying faces. In the mid 90's, while sidelining as a nanny through college, I discovered my genuine knack with children. After graduating from NYU's Film & Video School,  I relocated and found my home in San Francisco, CA. It was here that I was inspired to transfer my film skills to the photography arena to record the beauty of this place. Inspired by the authenticity of the child and the way the camera lens could translate it, I launched Venusgirl Photography in 2007 and went full time in 2012. My work has been published in numerous publications including Rolling Stone and NBC. 

Venusgirl Photography specializes in the beauty, fun & delight of the newborn, pregnancy & the child.
