Professional family pictures are a wonderful investment because they will be passed down to future generations. Once your kids outgrow their toys and clothes, all you have left in 20 years to remember their childhood are these photographs!
I capture moments in time that you can never reproduce. When you kids get married, they can pass these beautiful family pictures down to their children.
You’re important to us!
We provide a 5-star Portrait Experience unsurpassed in its level of TLC! We take time to get to know YOU allowing everyone to become comfortable around the camera. We get down on the kids’ level ~ literally on the ground and interact with them to reveal their true personalities! We provide 110% customer service before, during and after your family session!

“Heidi & Gerry has photographed our family for over 10 years and we would never go to anyone else. We met her at a wedding show 15 years ago and once we saw her work it was love at first sight! Every year Heidi surprises us with new breathtaking locations and stunning art work!
Thank you for your photo magic! ~ Erin & family
“Our family has been fortunate to work with De La Teja Studios for the past 10 years. It all began with a phone call to have Heidi take our engagement photos. Her unique eye for a great shot and outside the box thinking drew us to wanting more! We quickly realized that we could NOT have any other photographer shoot our destination wedding in Cancun, Mexico. We hired Heidi to come to Mexico and take our photos and once again she did not disappoint! We still receive many comments on our wedding pictures and have been asked “Who took those? They are amazing!”
Shortly thereafter we had our son, Miles. Once again, we wanted no one other than Heidi to take his very first photos. She continues to take our family pictures each year and coming from someone who really dislikes having her photo taken, Heidi always makes me look my best in every shot! Her photos not only boost my confidence, but she is never short of making me feel beautiful while she is trying to capture the family moments.
What I love about Heidi is that she is so creative and thinks about shots that quite honestly I haven’t seen before. She has a way of making any photo come to life. Heidi has quickly become a part of our family not only because she has been a part of EVERY big milestone in our lives but she has the kindest heart and most outgoing personality. I can honestly say she is the best out there and anyone who choses De La Teja Studios as their photographer will NOT be disappointed!” ~ Lindsey Pearson
