The Studio

HW Portraits is owned and operated by Heidi Wisniewski. The studio is located on the Mississippi River in beautiful downtown Winona, Minnesota. After nearly 20 years in the Graphic Design industry, Heidi opened 'Heidi Wisniewski Photography' in 2012 out of her home. In March of 2016, the studio was renamed to 'HW Portraits' and relocated to a renovated 125-year-old grocery warehouse which includes an indoor shooting space.
