PHOTOGRAPHER, BARISTA, & LOVER OF GOOD COFFEE
WITH GREAT COMPANY

ESTHER HEETHUIS :)

     so you found my website... i'm guessing you like coffee, photography, having a good time--or something in between? if so, lets be friends :). i am a lover and creator of art, created by the greatest artist of ALL TIME. my Hallmark story with coffee started young. like really young. my admiration for my dad inspired me to drink coffee at 10 or 11ish (i wasn't thinking about age at the time--just the moustache trend and rollerblading). i quickly fell in love with the biter drink. --fast forward to 16--i found that coffee shops were an oasis. an island of calm in the chaos that is highschool. i was mesmerized by the genuity and rhythm of the bustling business. 

     coffee is more than a bitter thing to sip on when the conversation lulls. it’s more than a quick stop at the nearest shop for a jolt of caffeine. quiet sunrises on the coast sipping your favorite batch brew, hot summer days spent downing a full bodied, cocoa hinted cold brew, long fireside chats with old friends accompanied by the wafting smell of a fresh Ethiopian pour over----that’s coffee. it’s those little moments, those fleeting memories and small breakthroughs of intimacy that make up the elusive definition of “grabbing a cup of coffee”.

     there is something beautiful about the cheerful chitter chatter of a hopping cafe, the quiet comradery of two gentlemen sipping their decaf americanos in near silence, and the boisterous laughing of reunited relationships. coffee helps to foster such a strong, heart touching sense of community.it is my passion to contribute to such a wonderful industry.

     the thought of combining my love for this drink with the creativity and artistry that goes into social media coordination is extremely exciting. being able to educate and inform your customers in a way that brings value both to your service and to their lives is SO COOL

 

can't wait to talk more!
