Hi there and Welcome

 

My name is Heather and I am so glad you’re here! I'm a multi-genre photographer out of Central Iowa and I’d love to get to know you better and capture these moments in life with you!! I have a natural light studio in downtown Adel, Iowa; about 25 minutes west of Des Moines, and 15 minutes west of West Des Moines. My studio. When I'm not photographing in my natural light studio, I take full advantage of the beautiful Iowa landscape we have right here in small little town. The beautiful flowering blooms in the spring, the beautiful summer sunsets, gorgeous fall foliage, to the beautiful white crisp winters!

I specialize in small children ages 6 months and up, to seniors, families, weddings, boudoirs, and lifestyle photo sessions. I would love to get to know you better to give you the best experience possible!

About Heather

Hi, and welcome! I'm so glad you're here! My name is Heather, and I am the owner and photographer, at Heather Schroeder Photography. I grew up right here in central Iowa. Today, I live in Adel, Iowa with my husband and 3 beautiful kids and my adorable mini golden doodle! If you're not familiar with Adel, we are a little town just to the west of Des Moines by about 25 minutes! My studio is a beautiful natural light studio on the old downtown square looking right at the beautiful courthouse! As a child I remember my Grandmother came to visit us from California. While I didn't grow up here in Adel, we did pass through Adel while she was here and she had my Dad pull over so she could get a better look at, and get a picture of the most beautiful courthouse she had ever seen! Today, I'm lucky enough to have that memory from when I was 5 years old, to being able to look out and know exactly what my Grandmother meant by it! Each time I pick up my camera I know I'm going to stop and get a better look at something absolutely beautiful!

So what am I doing when I am not in my studio, or photographing something outdoors? I'm always dreaming of our next vacation, filled with hiking, camping, or the beach! If we aren't traveling, we are probably at a movie and I'm requesting my own popcorn! Oh, oh I love popcorn!

Client Testimonial

Heather made my daughter’s senior photo experience so much fun! She was so excited when she captured just the right light and look and made my daughter feel beautiful and confident. She spent much more time with us than we had expected and was able to play off my daughter’s personality perfectly. The result – photos we absolutely love! I’ve never seen so many great photos – it was hard to pick just a few. Being able to keep all of them digitally allowed us to cherish each one and not have to decide.

 

Thank you!
Brenda G.
