All About Me...



On location photo shoot in
Phoenix Arizona, December 2005

My name is Heather Hasse. Among many of the titles I wear in my life, I am a wife, mother, and founder of STI Photography.

simplytoimpress.com was created in 2003 when the search was on for creative and innovative designs for personalized invitations and announcements. I was a woman on a mission- I wanted to use photographs to truly capture the moment in life that I was celebrating...whether it was a family holiday, the birth of one of my five children, or a birthday party I was throwing for a friend! I wanted to embrace that moment and capture the memory...and I didn't want to have to pay a fortune in order to get something that unique. 


Me and the inspiration that surrounds my life

With my love of photography it was only natural that the next step in the company would be to create a photography business with the same values, beliefs, and mission that was the foundation for simplytoimpress.com, thus Simply to Inspire Photography was born. As a mother, I wanted to design a photography studio that was going to be a fun experience that would allow both children and parents to relax and enjoy themselves. I wanted to be a photographer that was going to capture the natural moments of children, instead of the posed "fake" smiles that were found elsewhere. I feel that photographs are poetry for the visual arts. Their physical scope is contained within the four edges of a single frame, and within a precise moment in time. But their ability to convey meaning and beauty is immeasurable. This is my inspiration.

I hope you will find that my artistic expression will make your photography session a unique experience that will produce beautiful portraits to be cherished forever. My uncompromising vision bridges the gap that lies between fine art and photography. Soul and grace with style...my passion will be your reward.
