You’re worth it!

Most parents spend over $600 a year on toys (kids grow tired of quickly) and over $700 a year on clothing  (kids grow out of quickly) and more on dance classes or sports. Maternity and family photos are priceless and will be passed down to future generations!

You can do this!

 From the moment your baby turns ONE you will only have 12 summers to spend with them until they are a teenager and they are off with their friends. {12 summers, 12 family trips, 12 birthday parties etc.}  Family time is precious and we want to capture those moments!

Love Notes

“Heidi and Gerry have photographed our family for over 10 years and we would never go to anyone else. We met them at a wedding show 15 years ago and once we saw their work it was love at first sight!  Every year they surprise us with new breathtaking locations and stunning art work! They really are a dream team!

Thank you for your photo magic!  ~ Erin & family

Fine Art Prints

Following your session, we select the best images for retouching. We devote time to carefully compare 100’s of images from your session to select the best ones from each concept — based on facial expressions, posing, lighting, sharpness, and overall appeal. These final images are each individually processed and enhanced into a true work of art.


 Pageant Portfolios

Heidi & Gerry’s edgy and emotive fashion journalism/ pageantry photography has gathered them a multitude of international advertising campaigns for pageants. Comfortable with formal and candid photography, they always shoot from the heart; purposely avoiding stiff unnatural poses. As artists they feed off your energy enabling them to create art and the ultimate pageantry images!

Heidi & Gerry’s unique visions and ability to put their clients at ease has added a sense of style to the subjects they document no matter what location you choose for your pageant portfolio. Heidi & Gerry love to travel and they don’t want to repeat what other photographers have done ~ Team Teja prides themselves on originality and want your pageant photos to be extraordinary!
