Kelly has been a true pleasure to work with from the our very first interaction via email up to the day of the shoot and beyond. Kelly not only puts out some outstanding work but she also makes the experience fun and very easy.
A New Earth – Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose by Eckhart Tolle … WOW. This is another one of those reads that is all encompasing through deep awareness and alternative perspectives on life, it’s hard to pinpoint what it’s all about. Books like this have sentence after sentence that you have to read multiple times to really let it sink in. I highly … Read More
The Noticer and The Noticer Returns by Andy Andrews are both fun and rewarding reads that leave with with an altered perspective of life. The Noticer touches on aspects that remind me of two other recent reads… “The 5 Love Languages” by Gary Chapman and “Lifeonaire” by Shaun McCloskey and Steve Cook. A character in the book “notices” obvious things in ways it seems others … Read More
Over the past two years, Kelly and I have worked together to build a photo stock portfolio to freshen marketing material for Carroll County Tourism. 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!
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 … Read More

The Automatic Millionaire – A Powerful One-Step Plan to Live and Finish Rich by David Bach was a quick and easy read, focusing on all things money. They begin with the concept of the Latte Factor… spending $5.00 on a drink (often more) doesn’t seem like much, but if you do it every day for years, it adds up REALLY quick. … Read More
The Power of Now by Echart Tolle is an excellent read to change your perspective. I noted so many insightful excerpts and wanted to share a few with you. To be identified with your mind is to be trapped in time: the compulsion to live almost exclusively through memory and anticipation.” pg 48 “The more you are focused on time – past … Read More
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 … Read More
Zen and the Art of Happiness by Chris Prentiss was an interesting read. The biggest thing I’ve taken from this book is… Everything that happens to me is the best possible thing that could happen to me. What an amazing way to look at the world, events, and outcomes. Marcus Aurelius once said, “Accept whatever comes to you woven in the … Read More
I presented to a live audience at Ignite Carroll this past week for the first time!! I chose a topic of personal enjoyment instead of career boosting (yes I know, I’m crazy)… and would you believe I spoke about The History, Health Benefits, and How-To of Juggling. YES, I JUGGLE! And not only was I one of many speakers – … Read More
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, … Read More
