ABOUT ME POST! 📢
Helloooo my sweet followers! I’m Heather Panter and I’m the Photographer with Pearl LeeAnn Photography!
Wait.😱 what. 😳
Who’s Pearl LeeAnn? Well... that’s me too!😳💥
When I was born my parents decided to give me 2 middle names.😁 And basically, I thought Pearl LeeAnn sounded more “artsy” than Heather Panter (Panter is pronounced Painter)
And there you have it! I probably should have branded my business in a less confusing way but that’s okay! ☺️
I am 26 years old and I live in a beautiful small town by the name of Chatsworth,Ga (near Dalton, Ga) with my amazing husband Cliff and our beautiful daughter Bethany!
I have been taking pictures since I can remember but when I was about 12 years old I remember being outside taking pictures of random things outside and then finally looking at them to see what I created. It was in that moment when I first heard God’s voice. (I know this is where some of you will check out. And that’s okay.👍) But in that moment I heard that still small voice say “This is what I’ve created you to do”
Now, as a little girl i had always watched my family struggle financially all my life, and I personally struggled in school and always felt inadequate. So when God told me that THIS was what He created me for....
You can imagine all the questions I had.. Me? How? When? And How? Again.
But... God is so good. He took those questions and didn’t quite answer them in that moment but He did instantly fill me with unexplainable joy. Joy that took away the questions and I simply trusted Him. I remember dancing in my front yard and thanking God for choosing me!
Fast forward to now! 😉
I am a photographer! He did it! He really made it happen! After working as a waitress (2010) I saved money for my very first “pro” camera and that’s when I started taking pictures for actual people! 😜 God has done some AMAZING things in these 8 years. He has taught me SO much about people and His incredible love for them.
Look out for another “about me”part 2! It hasn’t always been easy! Especially as a self taught photographer! 😉
The two photos of the fence I’ve shared are from that special day when Jesus spoke to me! 🙂
Something we are continuing to learn as a family is the simple fact that "Jesus is Better"
He's better than anything we may want or need
He's better than any feeling or emotion
He's better than any addictions
He's even even better than what we think is the BEST.
He's SO much better.
Love this sweater? @halynjenkins is the best!
Totally in love with this family session..❤️ Aaron is a very talented photographer and I have always looked up to his work! What an honor it was to do pictures of him and his beautiful wife Sydney and adorable baby boy Titus!
