First & foremost – I give the LORD full credit and gratitude for my talents and gifts! The divinely appointed drive in me to be creative & bless others through my art goes deep into my core. I have a NEEEEEED to be CREATIVE!!! It’s woven into the fibers of my being, so I know that’s the Lord’s handy work 🙂 It’s exciting!
h.a.e is me – heidi ann preisch ecklor
This is my family in December 2007:
My husband Jerry, our sweet daughter Ryley and I live in Jacksonville, Florida. I create heart-warming, unique indoor/outdoor/location lifestyle portraiture and wedding photography. I enjoy travel and have photographed weddings and other assignments along the east coast. I also enjoy sports action photography and sub-contract for Gumps Sports Photo & Awards.
h.a.e (my initials) is the essence of who I am creatively. I pour my heart into my artwork and take a personal interest in creating images that are unique and heart-warming. My clients seek me for that reason. Through my artistry & dedication, I often go from being not just a photographer, but a fast family friend. Accepting a limited number of commissions per year gives me the time to invest in creating one of a kind images and allows me to provide personal attention to my clients…. to create “heartfelt artistry without exception!”
Love & Blessings,

Top left – Angie Bechanan www.bechananphoto.com – Angie not only blesses families here in Florida through her portraiture, she also uses her gifts in international missionary work! Being the first new photography friend I met soon after moving to Jacksonville, she’s had a major impact on my life. We met over the phone when I inquired about a job posting at Gumps Sports Photography, and we instantly became friends. We have traveled together for trainings, fun, & family . Angie took this photo in Cocoa Beach when I represented Jacksonville at the state level for the 2005 Marjorie Crick Teacher of the Year Award for the Florida Council for Exceptional Children (CEC). Visit Angie’s website & check out her awesome photography. It WILL bless you!
Family beach portraits – Kim Kirk www.kimkirkphotography.com – Kim and I met through our mutual friend Lorrie (Gumps Sports Photography). Then we began bumping into each other at photography workshops and PPSNF meetings. Now we’re good friends and I have the pleasure of assisting Kim at her weddings as a second photographer. She created these portraits for me when I designed my 2007 Christmas Cards. Check out her site too!
