"heather is absolutely amazing at what she does! her talent and her eye for stunning imagery is unlike anything i've ever seen in the area!"

At just 30 years old, Heather has 16 years of photography experience to her credit. She instantly fell in love with photography when she took it as an elective course during her sophomore year of high school. Heather's senior portrait work is recognized for the bright and bold look and feel to each image. She gets to know her clients and makes their unique personalities shine in every image. Heather's senior portraiture is nationally published and her vibrant, editorial-styled work has been featured in print and online publications. 

Heather works closely with each senior to create a custom experience focused on showing the true inner and outer beauty. She loves getting to know her seniors and completely customizes the look and feel of every session to authentically represent each client's unique personality. Seniors are given the royal treatment with top-of-the-line services, including hair, makeup, and wardrobe styling. What more could a girl want!?


 I am so glad that you are considering me to be your senior photographer! This is a monumental time in your life, and I would love to capture your senior memories!

I'm Heather, owner and photographer at Modern Monroe Portraiture. I'm an Aquarius who loves yoga pants, pizza, cupcakes, and sparkly things. In 2009, I graduated from Kansas State University with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Advertising and a minor in Psychology. It's probably pretty obvious that I big puffy heart Marilyn Monroe. I'm the mama of two extra-handsome little boys, and a pomapoo named Layla. My guilty pleasure is binge-watching Netflix to my heart's content. I hate spiders, and I can't sleep without a fan at night. If you're a Harry Potter fan, then you should know that I'm a proud member of House Ravenclaw. I'm pretty sure the left side of my brain doesn't work, and the right side is made up of rainbow glitter and confetti. I'm super goofy, and I like to make people laugh. I also have OCD (hands must be clean at all times), and I'm a perfectionist...what can ya do!?

I am confident in my creativity, and I am blessed to have this talent and passion for what I do. I have been in your shoes, and I know how crazy being a teenager can be. That's why I specialize in senior portraits!  I am so passionate about making all of my seniors look and feel amazing, and I promise to take the most beautiful images you have ever seen of yourself. To the parents - Today she is 17, and tomorrow, she will be all grown up and on her own. The next step in the professional photography timeline is typically wedding portraits, so take this time to cherish her and remember her just as she is today.
