    We coudn't be happier with the images that Heather has captured for us over the last few years. Her warmth and lovely nature bring out the best in her subjects, allowing her to capture beautiful and natural images. Heather worked with us to create the style of photography that we were looking for when photograhing our child. Her skill as a photographer is equally matched with her enthusiasm for her work. We have already been back to Seawind Studios to have our second baby photographed and look forward to many more photo sessions in the future.

    where to start! this amazing lady with such a natural talent has photographed my children for 14 years! she has managed to capture the essence of their beauty time and time again but made them all feel at ease. She has photographed my mum (who hates being photographed!) and her response was "...I've had such a wonderful day, I want to do it again!". When I look at the latest photos of my little girl I have such emotion - what Heather has captured is purely magical! Heather is many things in her life but to achieve the quality of work she does requires more than talent and dedication - and that wow factor she certainly has!

    Testimonials

    Cory, Cooinda Cat Resort & Dogs Country Club
    Heather of Seawinds Studios is an exceptional photographer. Our photographic journey started with Heather over 5 years ago now when we photographed my husband, myself and my very pregnant belly. The images she created were just divine and she made it all happen so easily and effortlessly. Since then she has photographed our family with our daughter; and our daughter with the most beautiful baby animals. These images were gifts for the grandparents and great grand aunty this past Christmas and the smiles that these images bought to all their faces was absolutely priceless. Heather has a beautiful spirit that seems to bring the best out of her subjects and in turn sees some wonderful images. We always have trouble choosing there are soooo many great ones! Most recently Heather has photographed both of our businesses for our websites and printed marketing materials. Changing from doing portrait photography to rooms with animals in them was no trouble at all for her and again the images that came out were exactly as I briefed her on. She has a wealth of knowledge, listens closely to what you are wanting to achieve and if you let her she even tells you how that can be made even better. Our Country Club for dogs www.dogscountryclub.com.au and our Resort for Cats www.cooindacatresort.com.au have been beautifully represented in what she has done for us. I would highly recommend her if you are needing a professional photographer who will provide you with images you will cherish for a lifetime.

    Michele,
    Personal, Passionate , Professional and Perfect. I could just leave the testimonial at that but I shall elaborate. Heather Joy of Seawinds Studio is quite the unique professional. You will not find a more passionate photographer. Her first love is taking photos but her passion is to take the absolute best photo she can for you . It is this love that drives her and not the fact it is a business. The fact she is "working" whilst she is with clients is often hard to accept or see. Time seems immaterial, customer satisfaction is her number one goal. Her creativity, attention to detail and most of all her innate ability to capture the essence of her subject matter is truly a gift upon which she has built her life long hobby and yes- also her business, although you will never get the feeling you are ever just a client ! Seawinds will deliver a photo for you which you will never tire of looking at and after all isn't that what its all about?

    Alison,
    Heather Runting of Seawind Studios has photographed the essence of my family both at my wedding and for family portraits. The images that are on my walls always are a conversation starter and people always say how beautiful my children look. Working with children is not easy. I have four boys who may not see the importance of having their photo taken. Heather has managed to take brilliant photos of my kids in the midst of tears and tantrums, laughs and cuddles, kisses and accidents. All the photos look great and choosing is VERY difficult. I'm sure I'll be back for an updated set of photos soon about every 3-4 years show the changes, growth and the possibilities! Heather's work is amazing! Viewing her work makes my heart burst with love for my kids. I recommend her to all who comment on the images she has taken of my kids and all who ask if I know a good photographer. You won't regret having Heather as your photographer!

About this Photographer

The fun & freedom of friendships is so important at all ages, but especially during the teenage years. Heather's "Teen Dream" photography sessions are designed to create & capture the teenage experience in photographs at the park, beach or in city urban settings.

Heather's all female team also photographs "Belladonna" images, an amazingly revitalising & liberating experience for the "beautiful woman you are" with a make-over including hair & make-up and a photographic session. Glamour & fashion portfolios are available from these sessions. A must for Valentine's Day or just simply to celebrate as a gift for yourself!

Heather is a photographer of flowers & gardens and an on-line gallery of fine art photographs showcasing these and her travel photographs will be opening in June 2013.
