Gallery Walls around the Home

Hi, I’m Heather with Heather Walker Photography. Such a joy to be included in this wonderful series! Thank you for having me Kristen!

I just adore Kristen and her sweet family and all she shares. I love what this series encourages in homes (for the eyes and the heart). I have a husband and 4 children who give me joy in capturing their daily lives. I strive to capture memories and real emotion in my photography. Here I’ll share with you a small home tour of a few collages I’ve created for our home. As you can see, I enjoy grouping photographs with other meaningful art. My very favorite art comes from my children and I have actually dedicated our entire staircase wall to display their their art in frames which you could see here. I’ll begin with our main living area. This is about as colorful as my decorating gets. I have a hard time committing to color and these pillows and art are perfect for someone like me because it can easily be swapped out. Kristen has definitely inspired me to let more color into my decorating.

When prepping for this series I actually went back a few years and printed images that I hadn’t seen in a while and brought found memories back (like the one of my now almost 3 year old in his high chair tasting food for the first time). I guess it’s no surprise we tend to appreciate photos more as time passes.

My baby’s room:

Such a pleasure to be involved here and I’ll look forward to the rest of the series!

You can find my blog here and find me on Instagram here.


My sweet friend Heather lives just a few streets away from me, has captured my family, and I’ve captured hers (even a birth). She has so much heart in her art, you’ll be inspired by what she shares.
