Sheila Huskey - Westminster, Maryland

Kelly was such a pleasure to work with for our headshot and office photo needs! She came prepared and ready to navigate the many personalities and quirks of those getting their photos taken. Even those that started out skeptical, were comfortable and trusting of Kelly behind the camera. We will certainly be working with Kelly again.

Stefani Pautz Stephenson, Ed.D. | Senior Director, Educator Community Partnerships at Digital Promise Global | Kelly Heck Photography

Kelly is an absolute joy to work with. She gave me great advice leading up to the shoot on how to prep for the day, and helped me feel confident in front of the camera. We did a few different settings and looks, and I was amazed at how great the photos turned out. I’ve gotten so many compliments on them! Added (and unexpected) bonus – the experience was a huge confidence booster!

Noah Kain | https://workwithnoah.com/ | Consulting - PPC - SEO - Lead Generation by Kelly Heck Photography

Kelly is an amazing photographer and beyond professional. Her communication from start to finish was so on point and I could not have been happier with the end result.

As a business owner, having quality photography makes such a difference in both how professional my website looks, but custom photography has an added benefit of positively impacting SEO. Especially for local businesses.

Thanks again, Kelly!

Jessica Walter Leadership Consulting of Biglerville, PA - portrait by Kelly Heck Photography

Kelly, thank you so much for using your unique and exceptional talent as a photographer to capture the personality and brand I wanted to convey as an author. There were many days when I was sitting at the computer wearing sweats with my hair in a messy bun and feeling like the words and concepts just weren’t coming… and if I should actually keep going. But there was something about being able to look at the photos you captured that reminded me of who I was. Or, more importantly, who I knew I needed to be to bring such an important message to the world. Thank you for being part of this journey and for bringing me countless moments of confidence when I needed them the most.

Nicole Linton - Bill Pay & Concierge Specialist | AJ Wealth - New York, NY | Kelly Heck Photography

My company hired Kelly to do headshots and she was so wonderful to work with! Very easy/flexible scheduling process and gave clear, easy to understand directions to the location we chose. She had such a pleasant demeanor and was able to confidently direct me during the shoot, which in turn made me so comfortable and I was really able to trust that she was getting very flattering angles/positioning. My photos came out PERFECT and I couldn’t have been happier. Will be returning when the need arises. Thanks Kelly!

Cowan Systems LLC | Baltimore, Maryland | Leaders in Transportation - Women in Trucking | Kelly Heck Photography

We have been working with Kelly for about a year now and she is fantastic! Kelly has handled 3-4 shoots for us, mostly corporate/identity stuff, both inside and outside of our offices. I have worked with probably a dozen or so photographers over the past 30 years, and Kelly is the best.

I would say her superpower is putting people at ease and working with subjects with various personalities. From our sales team to our CEO and executive team, Kelly quickly establishes a bond with anyone and it sets her far above the rest.

Easy to schedule, easy to work with, communicates effectively, takes amazing photos, turns them around professionally, has a nice platform for viewing and downloading photos, etc. Can’t say enough about her… She is awesome.

She patiently walked me through everything to expect, and gave me and my daughter some great tips and suggestions for preparing.

My daughter had such a great time posing for the photographs, and really felt supported and comfortable throughout the entire experience! And then came the pictures- absolutely gorgeous! Kelly knew exactly how to bring out my daughter’s personality, and really captured her spirit in so many fun ways!

I first met Kelly when she photographed me for a feature with a local organization in 2018. Kelly immediately put me at ease with her wonderful disposition and provided me with friendly feedback throughout the entire shoot to ensure I looked my best. I’ve been using her tips for striking the correct pose since and look 200% more fabulous in my photos. When it came time to have updated headshots of me and my executive team, Kelly was the first person I thought of. She is attentive, professional, and captured each member of my team at their best.

My husband and I were in a rush to get our home listed and on the market while the market was still hot. With short notice, Kelly was able to photograph our home and quickly have those photos ready for our listing. She was wonderfully sweet, on time and professional. Her photos really helped highlight all our homes best features and almost made me want to move back in! Thank you Kelly, we really appreciate your willingness to help, kindness and rapid turnaround!

Headshot candid moment with Kevin Dayhoff - photographer Kelly Heck


During the election campaign for Westminster City Council in the spring of 2019, Caroline and I decided to have portrait and branding artist photographer Kelly Heck take a campaign picture for us.

We were so thankful we chose Kelly – she is enormously talented. We really enjoyed working with her. She has a great sense of humor. She is very accessible and approachable. When we arrived at her studio in Taneytown, she was fully prepared, she had great cameras and equipment – all set-up and ready to go. Her excitement was contagious.

Kelly really makes you comfortable and puts you at ease. She runs a very efficient business operation. She gives you very personal individual attention – and she gets back with you in a timely manner for scheduling and coordination. She answers your questions thoroughly. She texts, emails and has a great web portal – her website is really well done and is an adventure all to itself. Kelly walks that fine line between being fun, yet easily understood as a very serious professional artist. Her prices are cost-efficient – especially when you take into consideration the enormous amount of time she puts into getting great pictures.

MAKKER by DesJardin - Product Photos


Working with Kelly Heck Photography was one of the best decisions we made for our company. She captured our vision perfectly, was very responsive to any feedback we had, and extremely prompt with all our deliverables. What I appreciated most about Kelly is that she didn’t just “show up” – she really took the time (before and during the shoot) to really understand our goals, share her thoughts on how to make our photos better, and always knew exactly what to do to get “that shot”. This included wall squats for minutes on end and standing on luggage towers! In addition, Kelly arrived an hour early to account for DMV traffic! We truly look forward to working with her on future projects and so should you.

Kelly truly captured my family’s history and dedication to the butcher business. With multiple shots throughout the shop, various poses, and multiple props of meat and knives, it was a task that would have been daunting to any photographer, and she handled it with humor and grace! These are photos that my family sincerely treasures, and we will pass them down through the generations as proof of our proud history in the meat business. It was an excellent retirement gift for the guys, and not only do we all love the final product, but it was a fun process creating these memories. Thank you so much to Kelly for capturing this cherished history!

Kelly is great walking you through the whole process offering suggestions regarding the style of the images and making sure the images match the intent of what you hope to use the photos. She has great photo equipment that makes the products pop – no shadows, no dark areas, no shiny spots – just right! Throughout the photo shoot she even shows you the raw images in the camera to ensure the look is what you want and if not adjusts things to make sure it does making sure I am happy with everything at the end of the day. The best part is going through the final images as I caught myself oohing over each image – they all look perfect for a magazine or postcard. I cannot recommend Kelly enough, she knows her stuff!

Even more impressive to me is how she managed to capture the power and emotion of our Drug Overdose and Prevention Vigil that involved over 400 people in attendance. The photos she took were frankly award-worthy, and through the moments she captured she was able to artistically convey the heartache of those who had lost loved ones. Kelly is not just a picture taker but her work shows a story-telling quality that you want for that special occasion….and she is an awesome juggling teacher to boot!

Autumn Summer Woodcraft | Handmade American Made Gifts for Men


I was looking for a photographer for large banner pictures, both for my website and social media/marketing channels. I sell wood pens that all have a metallic surface which is extremely difficult to capture. I was able to take some simple pictures, but when it came to the large “staged” pictures, I just couldn’t get it to work. Kelly was able to get the first picture within 15 minutes, and once that was set up, we just flew through the other’s! I was impressed with Kelly’s knowledge about lighting, equipment angles, and setting up the products in a way that look great on a website.

After meeting with Kelly, it only took a few days to edit them and have them back to me, and she was able to provide me with a few versions of each shot.

For any website or e-commerce store, it is totally worth the small investment to have a beautiful picture as the first thing your customers see. I feel that I got much more than I paid for, especially from a commercial standpoint, and I will be coming back to Kelly each time I need stock pictures or portraits for my website.

Kelly documented events and activities in the county that show off how much there is to do in our area. Her photographs have been a great addition to our portfolio!

Advertising Photos for Grass Products at Zoysia Farm Taneytown Maryland


I could have caught more than ‘heck’ for doing things so differently the day we met Kelly Heck, but instead we caught lightening in a bottle. Grass is not easy to photograph let alone the boring sequence from box to planting. Traditionally we have done photography in studio to control the light.  Kelly wanted to use the natural light right on our turf farm to capture the natural beauty of the grass and give it the look found in nature. The extra effort required to make it all work was so worth the end result. We are very happy she convinced us to do this. It gave us photographs that were real, not some studio concoction, and a truth and credibility in the presentation of the product as it really is. Things in nature are far from uniform and that is the way the product is now presented on our website. No more over processed photos… just the real thing the way it is. We caught Heck alright and glad we did, and we won’t catch heck from our customers anymore!

Kelly is a total pro – easy to work with, flexible with scheduling and she makes the subjects she photographs feel comfortable, even if they don’t like their pictures taken. The staff portraits turned out beautifully – and one staffer’s husband liked hers so much he wants to have prints made for the family! We’ve used Kelly in the past and will do so again in the future.

Laura & Todd, Elopement at Antrim 1844 in Taneytown, Maryland


I asked Kelly to photograph our intimate wedding ceremony at Antrim 1812. It was just the two of us, so we didn’t need someone for hours, but wanted to capture the moment. Kelly did an excellent job, and we are thrilled with the results. I thought I would be lucky to get one or two photos that I liked, but I only found a few that I didn’t! Not only are her photos excellent, she was also very pleasant and put us at ease. I highly recommend Kelly for your special event!
