Award-winning Plymouth photographer Heidi Harting has a knack for capturing the essence of summer—from balmy beachside breezes and the sound of giggling children running along the water’s edge—with a photograph. She specializes in family portraits, engagements, maternity and newborn sessions and images that reveal the everyday magic of childhood. Harting takes full advantage of the South Shore’s gorgeous beaches and verdant gardens as settings for her images and enjoys being able to document the lives of local children as they grow and change.
Harting occasionally accentuates the romance of her photo shoots by creating a short video montage called a lagniappe, which is a French word for “a little something more,” that incorporate a collection of images and movie clips to bring her photo shoots to life. These short clips are another fun tool for telling the story of an everyday moment—and making it memorable.
