Thank you for taking the time to view my work and visit my website! 

I am Heather!  Owner and Photographer to Heather Schroeder Photography, Wife and Mom to 3 amazing and active kids!

I fell in love with photography at a young age. Not just any genre of photography, but fashion! I would style outfits for my friends and put on a “photoshoot” in the back yard. As I grew up, photography had been taken over by sports, and college! I met my husband, got married, had children, and it wasn’t until then, I realized the mistake I was making! I was watching my children in front of me, the memories of them as babies were mine! I was not capturing this time for them to look back upon, or share with future generations. This is when I picked back up my camera, and my love affair with photography started again!

As I started to grow as a photographer, I would think about all the times I had my portraits taken professionally in my life. All great experiences except for one, my senior pictures. I had no idea the value of what those photographs would hold for me someday.

My favorite things to do when I am not behind the camera or in front of my computer are: cooking for my family, having a dance party in the living room with my family, karaoke, refinishing furniture, playing dolls with my girls and coloring, and doing puzzles and playing dinosaurs with my son, and of course date nights with my hubby, family movie nights. Whew, that more than just a few of my favorite things!
