Good to Meet You
Seattle newborn photographer Heather Glude has been a photographer for life as the daughter of two photographers. Given her first camera at the age of 8, she graduated to a fully manual film camera by 12. Her art focused on finding things we miss because we're too busy or distracted to stop and look, often in the natural world, but also in urban and industrial environments.
Her passion for newborn photography was born alongside her son in the exhaustion and love of the first frenetic weeks of life, when all plans went awry and opportunities to capture tiny toes were missed and life changed forever. Now, she is dedicated to capturing those first moments for other parents, blessed to relive the memories of the first days of his life every time she gets to see a tiny infant embraced in its mother's arms.
