Welcome to my creative corner of the internet! 

I'm Heather Getzlaf, a passionate photographer with over two decades of experience capturing life's most precious moments through my lens. But that's not all—three years ago, I embarked on a new journey of creativity by delving into the world of handmade child gowns. Now, after honing my craft, I'm thrilled to announce that my first collection will be available for sale this May 2024!

My Story

I am proud to call Calgary my hometown and the base of my photography journey. From the majestic landscapes of the Rockies to the urban charm of downtown, this vibrant city has been my muse and my backdrop for over two decades.

In my 20 years in the photography industry, I've had the privilege of capturing a diverse array of subjects and moments. From intimate boudoir sessions to joyous weddings, delicate newborn portraits to cherished family memories, and the whimsical world of fine art child photography, each click of my camera has been a celebration of life's beauty.

It was through my exploration of fine art child photography that I discovered my passion for couture child gowns. In 2021, I took it upon myself to learn the art of sewing, driven by a desire to create exquisite pieces that complemented the innocence and wonder of childhood. Now, as I prepare to unveil my first collection of handmade child gowns, I am filled with excitement and anticipation for the journey ahead.

But my creative endeavors don't end there. In addition to crafting these beautiful gowns, I'm dedicated to fostering a community of fellow photographers. Through curated experiences, I bring together picturesque settings, adorable models adorned in Heather Getzlaf Creation dresses, and stylized photoshoots that ignite our creativity and passion. These gatherings aren't just about snapping pictures; they're about learning, expanding our artistic horizons, and connecting with fellow creatives in a vibrant community.

I also share my knowledge and expertise through teaching. You can find me on YouTube and Patreon, where I offer tutorials and workshops on mastering Photoshop techniques, empowering others to enhance their photography skills and unleash their creativity.

So, whether you're here to explore my photography portfolio, browse through my upcoming gown collection, learn Photoshop techniques, or join us for one of our exciting photographer get-togethers, I'm thrilled to have you along for the ride. Together, let's capture beauty, ignite imagination, and make lasting memories.

Warmest regards,

Heather Getzlaf
