About the Photographer

You are beautiful!

Yes, YOU! So many of my clients tell me that they hate having their picture taken. I love that challenge. It is my mission to create emotive portraits for you that capture your inner and outer beauty, the uniqueness of your personality, the bond you share as family and the passion you bring to your business.

When you work with me I will personally and creatively plan for every detail connected with your portrait or branding session. You will leave your session with a renewed sense of confidence, self love, and appreciation for who you are.

Photography is the only language
that can be understood anywhere in the world.

Come and sip a cup of coffee with me to plan and add focus to your session. My style is relaxed and easy going and I promise you'll be enjoying it.  I come prepared with the vision we've created together to make your session move seamlessly along. You will receive portraits that capture a variety of poses, candid moments and emotional connections. Your hardest task will be finding enough wall space to hang your favorite images.

What my clients say:

Heike has a creative eye that is evident in the composition of her images. She also relates very well with a variety of ages, as she places her subjects in the backdrops of her choice. She spent time with me and our granddaughters, and they considered her a friend by the end of our session! That’s saying a lot for 8, 10, and 12 year olds! If you’re looking to preserve your family memories in photographs, I highly recommend Heike for the job!

Grandma & Granddaughters Marian T, Landisville, PA

Heike is an excellent photographer! She is creative, thoughtful, and works well with all types of people, even those who might be reluctant to have photos taken. Heike created wonderful photographs of our family gathering.

90th Birthday Event Marilyn P, Lancaster, PA

Over the course of a 45-year career in corporate advertising, public relations and private business, I’ve had the opportunity to work with many professional photographers. My experience with Heike Martin was the best! From the minute I looked at her portfolio, I knew she had the special quality that it takes to bring out the best in her subjects, a rare quality that makes all the difference in the world.
Her after-the-shoot followup and assistance was exceptional — kind and thoroughly professional.

Political Campaign Roger G, Colebrook, PA

Heike did a great job with a mini session for our family! She had ideas and tricks to make our 4-year-old son focus and smile. She was super fast in getting our photos to us as well!

Family Mini Session Kelly M, Mount Joy, PA

I’ll be honest, it had been nearly 10 years since our last professional family portrait, and I was so nervous. I actually had a nightmare the week before. How do you keep three kids happy during an hour-long portrait session? Goodness, though, Heike made it painless and even fun. The family portraits are fantastic, but the photos of the individual kids – they are simply priceless. So glad for this friend and artist who could take time to capture us!

Heike was wonderful! She found a great location for my family, was able to control the shoot very efficiently and get fantastic photos!!!
