The definition of a great image is one that stays with you, one that you can’t forget.

- Steve McCurry

Let’s collaborate - if you can imagine it, I can create it.

Have you ever experienced a photoshoot that was awkward, stuffy and didn’t have the lasting impact you desired?

I have been there, and I hate to say, I might have created a few of those in my time.

After more than a decade in the photography industry, I now know exactly what I want to produce - a photography experience that not only encourages and empowers women, but one that leaves them with tangible evidence of their beauty and inspires them to live confidently.

Whether you need a brand shoot, senior session or want to collaborate on a re-creation of an outside-the-box image that speaks to you, if you can imagine it, I can help you create it.

Be bold. Be dramatic. Be creative. Be beautiful. I can’t wait to meet you!

Reviews

You helped embolden me to just be myself. To not hide who I am.


- LGBTQ+ Advocate

The whole experience, from Heidi’s professionalism to her charismatic genuine personality, helped me grow more than I thought possible. Seeing the stunning images she captured boosted my self esteem and made my heart dance.


- Videographer and Film Editor

Preparing for my session, Heidi guided me in gathering all the props that would make my session more personal. I was left speechless because Heidi was able to capture the emotion I was feeling and I will forever be able to cherish that.


- Photography Technician

It’s no exaggeration to say I’ve worked with dozens of photographers the past several years. Heidi is the dark horse I will always prefer to shoot with in Arizona. The images always come out startlingly beautiful, with every detail pristinely lit and every element composed perfectly. She works efficiently and is extremely friendly and fun.


- Lead Singer of Catalyst Crime

An exceptional image should capture the beauty, strength, uniqueness and untold story of its subject(s), and that's exactly where Heidi Mixon Imagery excels. Not only is her photography bold, dynamic and creative, but it tells a powerful story with each frame she captures. In a society that wants you to believe that you are not as beautiful as magazine cover models unless you look like someone other than yourself, Heidi transcends that with her lens and captures the beauty that is truly YOU.


- Founder & CEO, LaPorte & Company

Heidi is not just an exceptional photographer she is an exceptional person.  She is fun to work with and makes sure every detail has been thought through and prepared for. She has taken professional portraits for me at my downtown office, the photos are stunning.  You will never be sorry for choosing Heidi. She is my lifetime photographer. They just don't get any better!


- Director of Faith and Community Initiatives for state government

Heidi did a great job of being my photography mentor over the past year. She has such a wealth of knowledge, professionalism, and positive energy; I learned very quickly! I gained a new understanding and experience with using lighting to create beautiful, flattering photos of people. I learned a number of creative tricks that help me take my work to an above average level. She is fantastic to work with, being very understanding of where I am in my learning process and what I need most. I would definitely recommend her for anyone needing a top-notch photography mentor.


- Novice Photography Business Owner

I met Heidi through the Arizona Professional Photographers Association last year, and we instantly hit it off. I knew she would be a great mentor for me. She has a great passion for photography, teaching and mentoring, along with supporting and helping others further develop themselves and their business. Photography and the business of photography can be very challenging. I have found those challenges to be difficult at times and Heidi has been very supportive, and she continually builds me up and motivates me to keep going. Her guidance has been very beneficial to my professional development. Heidi has many awesome attributes, but one that stood out from the start for me is that she can take the technical aspects of photography and explain it in a language that I could understand. This was extremely helpful when it came time to explain off-camera flash and lighting ratios. It all came together after attending two practical mentoring sessions with Heidi, where I was able to work on the posing and lighting scenarios, she taught me. I am very fortunate to have Heidi as my mentor and would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a qualified mentor. Her caring and supportive approach will inspire you to become a better photographer and person.
