Welcome to HJB Photo. I’m Heidi. This is my website and these are my photos. I graduated from CCS in Detroit, moved to Seattle and Chicago with Getty Images, then started HJB Photo as a freelance photographer.
I Create natural, spontaneous photos that represent you and your family. I shoot frequently and in lots of different situations. I have worked as a photojournalist in Africa working to prevent violence against women and children, as a wedding photographer, a family photographer, dog photographer, and maternity photographer. My photos have been published in photo books, Author’s book photos, calendars, Annual reports, magazines, Websites, Blogs and my photos grace the walls of lots of amazing families in Chicago.
Creating photos that are enduring, welcoming, warm, engaging and flattering is something I take pride in and retouching your photos so that they are polished and exceptional but still natural is a skill I excel at. I want you to look your best and I love what I do.
Working with me is easy and collaborative. I will make your shoot surprisingly fun and painless. I also know all the best spots for taking photos in Chicago. After years of shooting in so many situations you can trust that I will assuredly get great photos of you and your family.
