Hi, I’m Heike Martin

Tell your true story. Attract your ideal clients. Grow your impact.

If you want to magnetically attract your ideal client with your headshot or brand photos, you don’t need to look like a model. You need honest photography that showcases who you really are, what you stand for, and the client experience only you can provide. After all, your people want to get to know you, the person they’ll work with, in all your quirky glory—not a version of you that they wouldn’t recognize on the street!

We’ll get you there with a relaxed, organized experience that reveals and illuminates your unique strengths. Your photo shoot is your chance to leave all your other hats at the door, and step fully into your professional role—or the one you want! So you can make your voice heard, and make an impact for the clients who need you.

And, maybe even more importantly? You’ll leave your session with a renewed sense of confidence, self-love, and appreciation for the amazing human that you are.

Quote by Alfred Eisenstaedt

About Me

I’m Heike, and my mission is to help professionals step into the spotlight with confidence and intention. Drawing on 17 years of fair trade marketing experience, my photography centers storytelling, joy, and a celebration of unfiltered truth. I also love helping people shift their perspective on what brand photography can do for them. That’s why I regularly speak about photography and branding—in my trademark German accent—for networking groups, panels, and podcasts.

When I’m not with clients, I’m often exploring our world through travel, including annual visits home to Germany. Then it’s back to dancing, playing table games with family over margaritas, savoring homegrown organic food... and soaking up the simple pleasures of country life.

Ready to show up how you want to be seen? Book a free call to chat over coffee, and find out if  we’re a good fit!

I had been scoping out Heike for my branding photography investment for my small business, and I am so happy I decided... to pull the trigger! My small business and my entrepreneurial confidence have tripled in such a short period of time. From the first conversation to the final delivery of images, Heike was a true professional. She is passionate about helping businesses speak their brand, and she immediately clicked with the ideas I wanted to convey, and the special story that my brand was meant to tell. She lays out all the details for you, every step of the way, and really listens to you and includes your personal details in the session. I was completely comfortable and at ease, and for an introvert doing a photo shoot, I assure you that is not natural. It was all thanks to Heike. I had so much fun with her and really value her expertise. Do yourself, and your brand, a favor and book her now.read more

My brand photoshoot with Heike was an extraordinary experience. I felt comfortable, taken care of, and heard from the... moment of first contact all the way through the photoshoot — and beyond. Because of her detailed questionnaire and our virtual meeting pre-shoot, I felt completely prepared, inspired, and excited when I arrived day-of. We were able to brainstorm and collaborate on ideas together — resulting in a MUCH more robust experience than I could have envisioned by myself. We moved effortlessly through multiple locations (within the same building), several outfits, and a variety of props — creating a library of unique and varied images. You would think that we took several days to acquire all of the settings and looks. We simply used a half day. I can't wait to use them all over my social media, website, and MORE!!!read more

I needed to have headshots taken for my job. I usually don't enjoy these experiences but Heike Martin put me at ease,... helped me relax and enjoy the experience! The photos are just wonderful! We are a virtual company and I use the photos on several of our software platforms. Everyone who sees them comments on how great I look. I tell them that the secret is a great photographer!read more

I had a fantastic headshot/branding photography experience with Heike. We talked about how I wanted to feature a casual... style, and Heike familiarized herself with my brand vibe/colors before our session. The color matching she did is amazing and everything will fit right into my website and social media feeds as-is! I will definitely be back to work with Heike again to get some more formal business shots.read more

Heike did a fabulous branding shoot for me that provided me with an array of photos for my website, social media, and... print advertising that totally captures who I am and what I do. As someone who despises having her picture taken, she was wonderful to work with, keeping me laughing and relaxed. I highly recommend her work.read more
