Heidi Green’s photography career began in a classroom, but not a photography classroom – a preschool classroom. It was her former career as an early childhood teacher that sparked her passion for photographing children. After hearing parents complain year after year about their children’s stale, cookie-cutter school portraits, Heidi was inspired to blend a more natural approach into kids’ photography. She began bringing her camera to take candid photos of the kids, and the parents all wanted to buy them. She knew that she was onto something special. Friends saw her work and hinted that she was in the wrong profession. It only took her first photo job before she agreed. Heidi left teaching in 2006, enthusiastically launched Heidi Green Photography, and has never looked back.
With a B.A. from the University of Michigan, a Master’s in Education from UCLA, and additional training from the International Center for Photography in New York, Heidi is armed with both the technical skills and the un-teachable: a natural ability to connect with her subjects. Jeff Zucker, television executive and proud father of four was quoted, “Heidi’s professionalism, unique charm, and rapport are why she’s a staple at all of our functions. Family photography is truly her niche.”
Heidi is called upon by NYC’s savviest, in-the-know moms, as well as top event planners and party venues to capture their fun. Her repertoire has expanded over the years to include weddings, showers, engagements, and mitzvahs. Whether it’s a portrait session or special celebration, Heidi approaches each shoot with a unique blend of perfectionism and passion… and it shines through in each and every photo!
Nominated ”Best Family Photographer” by Nickelodeon’s Parents’ Picks Awards, “Friendliest Family Photographer” by Red Tricycle, and “Top Photographer” by Urban Baby and Stroller Traffic.
Heidi has been featured on TV and in leading publications including; The New York Times, The Today Show, CNN, Gotham Magazine, People, Hamptons Magazine, New York Family, Time Out New York Kids, and numerous parenting sites.
Heidi’s relaxed, fun personality, perfectionist’s eye, artistic talents and complete love and zest for photography have earned her household name status.
