No major town is lacking in photography businesses. However, Dallas, TX's Heather Buckley Photography sets itself apart with one thing: its namesake, Heather Buckley. The 24-year-old is just beginning her photography career, but is finding her way, setting her business apart from the rest by being relatable and working towards her cosmetic certification. She'll photograph anyone interested in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, all the way up beyond McKinney and Sherman, TX. Buckley photographs graduations, weddings, children, loved ones and more.
Buckley developed her love of photography in high school. Growing up in San Luis Obispo, CA area, she often took her mother's camera out to shoot the scenery. Her hobby started as a love of black and white landscapes.
Later, when a few of her friends missed senior portraits, she offered to photograph them, and her love of portrait photography was born. Now, she feels a special connection to in-school clients as well, relating to them since it brings her back to these days and she isn't that far apart in age from these clients.
"I think not only my style of photography, but [also] my age sets me apart amongst the other photographers," Buckley says. "I wouldn't say I completely specialize in a certain type of photography. However, I am 24 years old and love the high school and college-aged graduates. I can really connect with them and our portrait sessions are always fun. That is why high school and college graduate portraits hold a special place in my heart. It is such a fun and exciting time in their lives and I can totally relate."
Buckley is actively working towards being certified in makeup. Once she is officially licensed, she will add these services to her photography sessions, further setting her business apart from the rest. Additionally, she recently added wedding photography back to into her services and says she's excited to get that started again.
"I am always coming up with new ideas and learning new techniques, with all of my portrait photography," Buckley says.
Buckley can be contacted via her website to schedule sessions. She is currently booking for 2017 senior portraits.
