Heather McClelland & Shad Kingston

Who are the Pair of Spades?

Wood worker and professional photographer met and joined forces in 2014 and never looked back! We are a blended family. Shad and I met at the very beginning stages of our divorces back in 2014 and we know we were put together so we could make it through that very difficult year. Now that 2014 is over, the future is brighter than it has ever been. We truly are the Brady Bunch, with 3 boys and 3 girls together, we are 2 self employed artists working hard to stay at home with our kids. (NO we don't homeschool. LOL)

Shad has been a woodworker and furniture maker for years, at one point owning his own store front shop in our hometown of Weatherford Texas. He's sarcastic and heck, funny and silly every single day, so making signs that make people smile was a natural avenue he had to pursue.  Shad has sold signs on our Etsy Shop since 2010 and we continue to do so.  We have added this shop to try and get away from the Etsy Seller Fees, and to consolidate all of our services to one page, etc.  If you would like to visit our shop to see our feedback and reviews, we encourage you to do so!  We are very proud of the work that we do, and the quality that we produce, and keeping our customers happy is our number one priority.  You can find our Pair of Spades Etsy shop by clicking here:  Pair Of Spades on Etsy.

Heather has been a professional portrait photographer for 14 years. During the slow seasons I am right by Shad's side in the shop. Designing, painting, sanding and poly-ing everything that moves through there. I also handle the $$ and marketing side of Pair of Spades.  Heather specializes in HDR Real Estate photography, architectural commercial photography, portrait work, child and family photography, seniors, engagements and weddings.  Heather is happy to serve the Fort Worth, Dallas, Weatherford, Texas, Springtown, Azle, Mineral Wells, Granbury, Poolville, Aledo, Hudson Oaks, Willow Park, and all surrounding towns. 

With 6 kids, 3 dogs, 6 cats and 15 chickens, our life is never boring! Thanks to our new chapter in this life, we've never been happier. Thank you for supporting our family and allowing us to do what we love to do, and be home with our kiddos.

HDR Real Estate Photography


Heather's passion is real estate photography!!

I have been a portrait photographer for the past 14 years.  After my divorce, and finding myself needing to depend on photography to support my family full time, real estate has become an integral part of my photography business.  I have found so much enjoyment helping homeowners and agents showcase their homes!  In fact, I have loved it so much, I am currently pursuing my real estate license.  As soon as I am licensed,  I will be available to not only photograph your home, but to guide my clients through the sales process as well.  My firm belief is that every single home deserves to be showcased exactly as if it were a million dollar home.  With my years of experience photographing and producing marketing pieces for my clients, I cannot wait to do it for you too!  Sign up below with your email to be the first to know when I am done with school and ready to go!


With my creative eye and arsenal of equipment, no other agent will be equipped to showcase your house quite like I will.

Every home will have top quality images, drone images, video, and a blog page dedicated to showcasing its very best features as well as painting a picture of life at your property.  Check back often to keep in touch with my progress, or sign up with your email address below to be the first to hear the announcement that my license is ACTIVE and I'm ready to rock!
