Heather and Kissy were so much fun to work with! They were able to get our 18 month old daughter to smile for the camera within a few minutes of meeting her. There were a few shots/poses that I wanted and they made sure to get those as well as lots of other poses.

Their guide was very helpful for helping to coordinate outfits and had tips for how to prepare with kids.

In the end, the pictures turned out beautifully and we’d love to work with Heather and Kissy again.

It's not a job - it's love

Newborn-Shoots, Christmas Photos, Portrait Photoshoots and Cake Smash - we did them all with HK Create. Each of the photos still blows us and our friends and family away.

The shoots are always fun and the outcome is awesome. They have such a good eye for all the important details.

It's more than a job: you can feel that it's love what they are doing.


Heather and Kissy are both very talented and have a great eye! Follow their color guides and you’ll be so happy you did!

Their photos come out looking crisp and clean yet soft and airy. I’ve gotten really good at spotting their work amongst social media because they just have that signature look!

They are great with children- seriously- leave it to Kissy to make a fool of herself just to get a little one to smile! You don’t feel rushed and you feel like they listen and genuinely care about the quality of your photos. Give them a try!

We loved working with Heather and Kissy for our family photoshoot. The pre-session guide they provided was incredibly informative and helped us go into the photoshoot feeling prepared and with some peace of mind.


They did a great job of making it a comfortable and fun experience for everyone, which is a huge accomplishment when there are various family members, a toddler, and a dog involved!


They were very sweet and gentle with my parents who are older and sometimes have trouble with direction. Afterwards, they kept talking about how much they enjoyed the experience, which really meant a lot to me. The photos came out perfect and really captured the love and joy within our family. I would definitely work with them again and would recommend them to my own friends and family without hesitation. Great work!

from YVONNE P.

I had the most wonderful experience with Heather and Kissy capturing moments with my family.


From the moment they arrived, their warmth and enthusiasm put us at ease, making the session incredibly enjoyable. They effortlessly captured our family dynamics, resulting in stunning and authentic photographs we'll cherish forever.


Their creativity and attention to detail shone through every image, and their passion for their craft made the entire process fun and relaxed.


I'm truly grateful for the exceptional memories they've given us and wholeheartedly recommend them for their professionalism, creativity, and the joy they bring to their work.

My husband and I reached out to HK Create after receiving several referrals from friends and family members.


We shot maternity and family photos with Heather and Kissy and appreciated their thoughtfulness, direction and attention to detail. They made the shoot fun!


Our experience working with them was amazing and can’t thank them enough for our beautiful photos!

from ERIN K.

Heather and Kissy are nothing short of amazing!


They were super easy to work with and made everyone feel very comfortable. It was easy to joke around and feel familiar with them.


We received our photos from the shoot in less time than they had said it would take, and the pictures were phenomenal! So much better than I could have ever imagined!


These two are as genuine as they come. We've definitely found our family photographers and can't wait for more photoshoots!

Heather and Kissy are amazing photographers! They are super affordable and have amazing communication.


Our family has used them two times now for family sessions, and both times we received so many compliments on how our photos turned out.


Photo sessions in general can sometimes be uncomfortable or awkward, but Heather and Kissy make it easy and fun. Highly recommend!


Heather and Kissy have captured our family photos for many years.


Sometimes it can be an undesirable process with small children but I'm always so happy I did it once I see their results. They make it as easy as possible, are super friendly and have fair prices.


I've referred them to many people and they have all been very happy too.


We just love them and will continue to use them for many years.

I first reached out to Heather and Kissy of HKCreate for our family Christmas photos in 2018. We were completely blown away with the first session we had with the sisters. They were able to get our 6 month old and 2 year old boys to give so many smiles. They have a gift for getting our kids to relax and enjoy the photo session like never before.


Since then we have used them for all our Christmas photos and milestones like cake smash pics and spring birthday pictures of our boys growing up. Our whole family looks forward to our sessions and we have a blast every single time.


Heather and Kissy come over to Santa Cruz to take our pictures at the beach where we have the best time. Each session we have had has produced the best quality photos we could have dreamt of.


We cherish these memories and have the pictures over the past 4+ year all over our house. We also truly appreciate that the sessions are very reasonable. We wouldn’t be able to afford professional photography this quality otherwise, they are worth every penny!


We give HKCreate 5/5 stars and look forward to them documenting our family as our kids grow and our marriage grows as well. Thank you Heather and Kissy!


Heather and Kissy were awesome to work with from beginning to end! My husband and I first reached out to them for maternity photos. They were very quick to respond to my inquiry and my many questions.


We don’t take professional photos often, so the style guide and suggestions that they offered were greatly appreciated.


The photo session itself went even better than I could have imagined; they listened to our questions and concerns, were patient with us and our dog, and even my husband who strongly dislikes taking photos said that he was happy with the experience.


The edited photos were returned to us quickly and looked beautiful! We’re so glad we booked the maternity session with Heather and Kissy and plan to book with them again in the future!


If you’re looking for friendly, organized photographers that will deliver beautiful, natural photos, HK Create is the way to go.

We LOVED the photos from the large family beach shoot. We went on vacation with my in-law's last week and one night my mother-in-law and I sat on the couch to look through EVERY photo to choose which ones to frame.


She is so grateful for such beautiful photos of her family. We were both emotional reflecting on what an amazing legacy they've made.

from JAYME F.

This sister duo is such a delight to work with!

Their communication is prompt and their images are gorgeous.

I am most appreciative of the way they communicate with my children: getting on their level, addressing them directly, and asking them about their interests. The smiles are never forced because H&K take the time to make my littles feel seen.

I love how HK has a pre-session guide with outfit guide, color scheme, what to prep for our kid/dog. 

The session went so smooth and it was great that there were two of you so one can keep my son focused/entertained! 


It was our first time doing a mini session but it was great for my son, I feel like anything longer than 30 min would’ve been too hard for us.


The turnaround time to receive the pictures were so fast so I was able to print my holiday cards and send them on time!! 


Thank you for such beautiful pictures. Hope to have another session with you soon, and I’m definitely sending my friends your way.
