HEY HEY SWEET NEW FRIEND!!!

I am Heather Chipps Townsend! I am located in a sweet little town in southern Virginia that I love to pieces, but don’t get me wrong, I LOVE to travel! I am a wife to a hard working husband, Robert, who’s an INCREDIBLY TALENTED Emergency RN, CEN and my NUMBER ONE biggest fan. Together we have two cats, Sola and Luna, and our precious baby angel puppers, Cooper, Maple and Cricket, who really are our children so to speak. Family and friends mean the world to me and constantly inspire me to be a better person every day and to pursue my dream fearlessly.

Most days you can find me cozied up on the couch with a big cup of coffee with the animals by my side. Typically I am either editing photos and/or writing emails all while watching Netflix or Hulu with shows like Law and Order SVU, Grey’s Anatomy, Real Housewives, and or any True Crime in the background. I am mostly known for how happy I am. I tend to find the humor in just about everything and approach life light heartedly with a ton of faith. 

My journey as a photographer began right out of high school along side going to school for Graphic Design. I NEVER imagined being in my early 20s and owning my own BUSINESS!!! After being in the photography industry for several years, I learned that my love for photographing weddings grew exponentially and this is now what I specialize in and am honored to call my full time job. It’s something I love to the point that I become overwhelmed with so much happiness I could literally burst. I can’t wait for you to see more of what I love to do! Be sure to take a peek at the blog!
