Born on July 27, 1981, Heather was raised in Oshawa and attended elementary, secondary and post-secondary in the same city. An only child, Heather quickly learned how to keep herself busy with reading, writing, crafts and art. Her parents, Gayle and David, would take her on camping vacations every summer for up to 3 weeks - even driving all across to the east coast of Canada with their cat and dog. This greatly shaped her love of the outdoors. Growing up, Heather enjoyed playing many sports, signing in choir and music theatre, and honing her fine art skills. She maintained honour roll through every year of secondary school, and won awards for her art both in and outside the classroom. After being accepted to Durham College for Graphic Design in 2000, Heather made the decision to not complete her 5th year of high school, and instead went into an accelerated 2 year program. Upon graduation, Heather freelanced for various businesses before her son, Kaeden, was born in January 2003. This started a new chapter in Heather's life as she started on the path of entrepreneurship and in 2004, Heather Windsor Photography was started. Heather continued to work in the Graphic Design field for a number of years while photographing weddings and portraits on weekends. In 2008, Heather made the plunge to go full-time with her business and opened her own studio space in 2009. Heather has a great love of animals, cottage life, Caesars and naps.
