Hello! I am Heather, the founder & photographer of Snapshot Photography. Thank you for visiting my page & taking the time to read about me! I started this business quite a few years back and fall in love with it more and more everyday. I specialize in children photography. While I enjoy photographing children of all ages, the majority of my work consists of capturing little ones 18 months and under. My work consists of both classic portraiture & modern lifestyle photojournalism. I strive to capture unique & creative photos that showcase your child's personality in a relaxed and fun manner! My husband and I are both Ohio Valley natives. I grew up in Wheeling, graduated from Wheeling Central & Wheeling Jesuit University. My husband grew up in Martins Ferry, graduated from St. John's High School and Ohio University. He owns a Financial Advisor Firm by the name of DeFranco Financial in Wheeling, WV. We have six little ones...twin boys, Rocco & Bruno, Lucy, Dash, ZA and Xiao-Xiao.

-We received our pictures!!! Oh my they are wonderful! Seriously brought years to my eyes!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!-


-Oh Heather, these are wonderful!!!!!!! I am in love!!!!! I cried through that whole slide show lol! I can't thank you enough!!!! My son must have had a fun time yesterday because last night he asked if he could go outside again to get "pics" taken.  Thank you a million!!! You're awesome!-



-Thank you so much Heather. The pictures turned out beautiful. Such hard decisions are ahead now to pick what we want. We will be suggesting you to everyone.-


-I LOVE THEM!!!!!!!! :)♥ Thank you SOOOO much. It's going to be really hard to choose. Last time (at the other place) they were so terrible it was an easy choice. ONE good photo.

Thank you for making this difficult!-


-Heather!!!!!!!!!  It's perfect!!! Thank you so much!-


Oh my goodness!!! I have no idea how you captured what you did! You are truly amazing and I'm never going anywhere else! Can't wait to order! Thanks again Heather!


Heather, In case I haven’t told u enough how happy we r.. WE ARE SOO HAPPY with the pictures. You are the reason her big personality shines through in them.

We are having a tough time deciding.. :) thanks again!-



-Hi Heather! I have to tell you that I was completely heartbroken when we left the studio the other day because this is the first time we have used a "real" photographer. We had always gone to XXX and I was never happy. When I saw your photos of my friend’s baby, I thought your work was fantastic. Then, when my daughter had a complete meltdown on picture day, I was devastated because I didn't think you were going to be able to get any great pictures. Well, I was very pleasantly surprised today when viewing the proofs. They are great!

Thank you so much for your hard work. You have a wonderful talent!-


-Thank you so much much Heather. You were so patient and wonderful to work with it. You offer an amazing value for the price! We will be back!


-Heather, We just finished picking out pictures of the boys.  You did an absolutely wonderful job with them. I was hoping for a few good shots when the boys started getting restless. Wow!!! Every picture was great!  I had a very hard time trying to pick what I liked best!!! I can't wait to bring them back!! Thanks for your patience.  The pictures turned out awesome!-



-I can't believe you got the pictures you got.  She really wasn't very cooperative. They are great!  Thanks!-


-Oh I'm crying! Thank you so much. I can't put into words how precious this is! It was great working with you too!-


-Words do not do this justice! Monday was hard and I was disappointed, however, this video just made me cry Bc I almost forgot how important every moment is!  This truly captures their wonderfully different personalities and I could not be happier with how these pictures have turned out, thank you so much again for sharing your talent with my family and your patience!  I LOVE IT!


-I just saw some wonderful senior pictures you took of ####....you are fantastic. I work with his Mom and she could not help but gush with pride. She also said MANY lovely things about you. Keep up the good work my dear.-



Hi Heather. Thank you sooooo very much! The pics look absolutely fabulous. I love them! I guess my son, (with the help of a very talented photographer), did better than I thought he did at the session. You were able to capture some very cute moments .I would highly recommend you to anyone looking for some awesome pictures.-
