Heidi Walter Photography bio picture

Welcome to my blog!


I love all types of photos.  Especially love the ones I take of my children when they don't know I have my camera in my hand.   I love pictures that my kids draw for me and I "post-it" them all over my office.  I love the little things to look back on and remember a special day.  I love old black and white photos of my father when he was in the navy.  I love pictures that my kids take...even though they are out of focus. Because it comes from their heart.

I once took a workshop, and one of the photographers told me to write down and focus on the things I love.   I try and do this every morning ~ it sure is a nice way to start out the day.

I would love to meet you and your family.....if you are interested in booking a session contact me at 310-956-0976 or heidi@heidiwalterphotos.com

One Year | Hermosa Beach Photographer | Heidi Walter Photography

Meet the happiest, smiliest, most easy going kid I think I have met in about 4 years of sessions…  Now they are all pretty easy going, happy and enjoy the camera, but nothing like this one. Every time I called her name she looked at me with a cute little toothy grin.  She wasn’t afraid at all, it was was such a fun session.  Plus she was just darling and talked more than most one year olds too!!  This area has become a favorite place to shoot, the light is always perfect, it’s quiet and safe and pretty confined for my little clients that like to “run”.  Plus, we can always hear the peacocks in the background and sometimes they even walk down the street out in plain view.  Very exciting. :)

This is also coming to be my new favorite age.  Everything is exciting, just walking and how they just want to be held and snuggled by their parents.  It’s just so cute and I’ll be honest I miss it.  My littles are not so little anymore, 8 & 10 years old, and they will still let me hug and kiss them before school {they actually ask for it!!!!!}..but that will not last much longer.  So its so fun to get to know these little ones and hang out with them for a short amount of time.   I always leave sessions remembering mine at this age.  Lots of the kiddos have similar characteristics of mine, from teeth to pony tails to wobbly walking styles.   Just another reason I am grateful for my clients..sharing their little ones with me. ♥♥

8 months | Heidi Walter Photography | Palos Verdes Estates Photographer

I am dying to post her 1 year shots…but I guess I haven’t even put up her latest shots!!  Blogging is not my strength, mostly because there. is. just. no. time. in the day. :)  We have work…{well I have work}, school, homework, soccer, dance, playmates, dinner, grocery store, all those fun life errands that get in the way of me and showing off my latest sessions.  I either need more hours in the day or some adult ADD medicine. :)  All kidding aside, this little one is truly a favorite…been shooting her since she was a newborn and she will be one in just a few days.  This was about 8 months…and just a love to shoot. ♥

These two big brothers are one of the reasons I love to take pictures.  They were completely infatuated with their new little sister and they were so much fun, so happy and so eager to help me with taking pictures.  I have known the brothers since early preschool and I can’t believe that they are in elementary school…well at least the older is.  Time flies….  This sweet little girl will be so lucky growing up with these two. :)  She was so calm and sleepy, made for darling photos, such a beautiful little family. ♥

Redondo Beach Newborn Photographer | Heidi Walter Photography

Sessions are all custom and this one was all about new baby B.  I almost died when I saw the little knitted cowboy boots that mom had for him.  Plus the light was beautiful and the baby was perfect.  Nice and sleepy with an occasional smile, yawn and of course he was nice enough to show me his beautiful eyes.   I loved the nursery, it was just so cute with all the little details of books, pictures and artwork.  {I wish I had that talent of decorating.}
