Hi, Welcome to my blog!

Here's a little about me and why I love photography.

I've been married to my best friend for 5 years. I'm a young mom of 2 little girls. (As I type this, one is 3 years and one is 3 months old). The photo on the left is of the 3 year old (my other daughter is also hiding in the photo- I was pregnant at the time ;)

I love photographing people and details. I've learned that what really matters is not the pictures of the people, but the pictures that show who a person really is. That's why I tend to photograph people doing things together. I direct a little, and pose a little now and then, but I really treasure the opportunity to capture the real moments.

For more information on the basics of what I do, pricing, etc. you can visit my website. The blog will show you a few photos from each session. It'll also be where you'll see contests from time to time and announcements about upcoming events and changes at Heather Lynne Photography. I also blog a little about my life here, so you'll get to know me a bit through reading.

I hope you'll check it out & stay a while!

De Jong's Furniture Retirement Sale

My dad and his brothers are retiring. My grandfather started the business when they came to Canada from Holland when my dad & his twin brother were 3 years old. The store has been a big part of my life and the lives of all of my family members, so it's a pretty huge event for us all.

I was in town for the start of an early opening to their retirement sale where I got a chance to take a few photos. Here are just a few of them:



This was taken the day before the sale:


People waiting in line for the doors to open:


There's still equipment in the back room from when they used to build their own furniture:


A shot of my uncle in the office, as I'll remember him there. (I worked at the store when I was younger- so many memories in this photo!)

That shot of your uncle made me tear up for a moment, wishing I had a shot like that of my mother, doing something she loved before she passed. I just love the timeless quaslity you've captured here. Very nice.

PEP, thank you. I went back recently, to get a similar type of shot of my dad at the store, before it officially closes. I'm so glad I got it!

Well lets see the one of your dad to Heather. I love the picture of your uncle.

Hi Sherry :) I'm doing something for my dad for father's day that includes the pic. of him. Maybe I can share it on here after Father's Day :)
