"I'm in tears I am so excited.  YOU are amazingly talented Heather.  I'll write back with some consult times after I've looked at the slideshow a few [hundred] more times. I can't find a thank you that matches my enthusiasm." - Lisa D.

"Thank you so very much!!! For the beautiful photography! For the stunningly gorgeous editing - her eyes just sparkle! For the exquisitely designed cards! For the gifts - stickers, magnet and name card!" - Anne F.

"I know this is very last minute, but I was wondering if you'd be interested in doing the baby's newborn session.  Truth be told, we have already booked a newborn session with another photographer who was recommended to us by a friend.  However, we are so happy with our photos that we would LOVE for you to capture our baby boy's first moments of life." - Maria T.

"I LOVE the photos!  They are so beautiful!  I can't believe how handsome Cedar looks.  They are truly amazing!  And, oh my... some of those sweet Jade photos just steal my heart!  I know it's silly, because he's all dirty and grimy, but I absolutely love the one of him by the gate with the avocado all over his face.  Love that goofy mischievous little smirk! Thank you so much, Heather!  We will cherish them forever!" Nicole F.

"We feel very lucky to have found Venusgirl Photography. Heather did our daughter's 1 year photos, and they turned out amazing. The thing that really impressed us with her photos was that she was able to capture our daughter as who she is. Our pictures are of our daughter discovering the world around her, not just forward facing and smiling. We now have pictures of our daughter inspecting a speck of dirt and smelling a flower, and the wind blowing in her hair. All of these moments are ones you want to be able to keep forever, but find hard to capture on the camera as a parent." - Autumn W.

"Let me start by saying, Heather is amazing with kids! My daughter was immediately drawn to her.  Heather understood that kids are constantly on the move and took real rapid fire succession of pictures to ensure that she caught a good moment. The pictures were beautiful and natural. They are the best we have of my daughter by far." - Mandy S.

"Thank you!!  These are beautiful once again! You have such a talent!" - Nina D

"No!  I only like it when Heather takes my picture!" - Jonas (age 7), while being asked to smile by his mom
