Heather McClelland was born and raised in the beautiful northwest corner of the US in Idaho’s rugged northern panhandle. After high school, she moved to Utah to pursue a Bachelor's degree in Speech Pathology. She and her husband then moved to Los Angeles where she worked at the Ritz Carlton in Marina Del Rey, and then as part of the opening team for the J. Paul Getty Museum in Brentwood. As her family soon grew to include four beautiful, amazingly talented, and smart children, Heather elected to be a stay-at-home mom. Still needing to satisfy her entrepreneurial spirit, she created businesses that would allow her to work from home, including a medical billing business.
As her children grew, Heather discovered she had an artist’s eye for seeing beyond the lens of a camera; the pictures she snapped of her kids garnered much praise. This positive attention fueled her insatiable appetite for knowledge about all things photographic, leading her on a quest to learn everything she could about her newest passion - portrait photography. Her goal? To one day expand that passion into a rewarding career.
After ten years of enjoying the beach, sunshine, and mountains of Los Angeles, Heather and her family moved to the great state of Texas, settling down in Weatherford. Still immersed in furthering her knowledge and improving her skills with a camera, she ultimately achieved her goal and discovered what it meant to run a successful studio and portrait business. In her words, “I LOVE PHOTOGRAPHY!” And, for the past fifteen years, she has loved helping her clients create timeless images.
In 2014, a REALTOR® from Clark Real Estate Group approached Heather about using her artist’s eye to take portrait-quality photographs of real estate for marketing purposes. Newly single, she was eager for the challenge. As her reputation grew for enhancing a REALTOR®’s listings with her skillful photographic techniques, demand for her services spread among Clark’s other agents. Shooting primarily real estate kept her schedule fully booked, thus providing her the means to support her family. But beyond putting bread on the table, she found that this type of photography and marketing fed her entrepreneurial soul in other ways. So, in 2017, she acquired a Texas Real Estate License. Now, her own clients and family will benefit from her extensive photography, videography, and marketing skills. With her background as a full time professional photographer, coupled with her experience photographing and marketing real estate, Heather’s clients will have a huge advantage of having an agent who will spare nothing to market their properties in the most cutting edge, professional, and technologically advanced way possible.
