About Me


Get to know your photographer a little better

Hi, I am Heather Straus.

I am very passionate about how I make each client feel through their portraits. I've been at this for over 10 years. And I'm always astonished how much I learn and grow during each session whether it is a big wedding or one tinny baby. And I love every second of what I do.

I have two young boys and an incredible husband. We live in our first house in Tacoma, WA. Our love for adventure keeps us motivated to explore the world around us, whether it is hiking, camping, or taking day trips to the beach.

My love for photography began in high school when I took a Black and White Darkroom photography class, I was hooked. I didn't actually move to digital until several years later, getting me out of that darkroom was harder than I thought. But the versatility of Digital brought a whole new life changing perspective to my world.

Practicing at Pacific Northwest College of Art and The Academy of Art University has taught me new perspective that not many other photographers have, Fine Art. I value every single image I snap with my Nikon as a vision waiting to be brought to life.
