Hi there. I’m Heidi!

Heidi Crawford Family Lifestyle Photographer in Maricopa Arizona

My heart skips a beat for nature walks, photo journaling, comedy nights and a little honey in my iced coffee!

When I’m not taking photos or homeschooling the kiddos, one may find me covered in paint, thrifting or drawing! I live to be creative and it is something I have always prioritized.


Ever since I was a little girl I fell in love with sorting through old boxes filled to the brim of photos collected and snapped over the years. Some things just never change! Reminiscing and reconnecting with that moment in a photo is still one of my absolute favorite things to do.


Film photography class in middle school sparked my passion for learning the intricate functions of a camera and eventually led me to studying Graphic Design in Art college. For the last 15 years I have immersed myself in all different types of photography and my work has been featured by publications such as Better Homes & Gardens Magazine, Rock ’n Roll Bride blog, Alternative Press and Arizona’s Java Magazine. Being on both sides of the camera is so much fun for me and I still get excited about learning new ways to improve my craft!

This is the fun bunch that I love to bits! EVERYDAY IS FUELED BY their SWEET ENERGY and cuddles.

I live in Maricopa Arizona with my dreamy, talented and incredibly supportive husband. I often pinch myself that I married my childhood sweetheart neighbor (he is also my favorite musician) 7 years ago on a Gilbert Arizona backyard farm, we are celebrating 20 years together!!! Absolutely nothing tops couch karaoke and exploring the sunny southwest with the love of my life and two sweet littles. Chasing our children around snapping the ordinary but magical little moments has been a never ending project of love of mine and will be a gift for their future families. I just love looking back at all of the photo snippets of our lives and feeling what was in that very moment!


My joy for creating art, my own lovingly captured childhood photos and the need to freeze time for our little camera ham family is the heart and soul driving Whimsy & Glow Photography! I also have a blast creating nature photography and a have a print shop for purchasing unique gifts and wall art for the home and office!


IF YOU ARE SEARCHING FOR BOLD, VIBRANT AND ARTFUL IMAGES I WOULD LOVE TO BE YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER GAL!


Thank you for finding yourself in this creative space of mine!

Be sure to stop by again to see my available sessions & any new fun projects I may be up to.
