History of Strauss Peyton

Strauss Peyton Portraits began in Kansas City in the year 1900.  Since that beginning over a century ago, we have created a history of our town through our portraits of its people and families.  We’ve even photographed many of the movers and shakers on the local, national and world scene – Presidents, Generals, Prime Ministers, Television Personalities, Athletes, Movie Stars and Book Authors.  But what we enjoy doing the most is meeting people like you and creating portraits of their families and children – telling their personal story through finely crafted portraits.

Our portraits are considered works of art that can, like nothing else, truly make a house a home – your home!

  Our creativity and longevity have allowed us to create a body of work unsurpassed by any other portrait studio.  We are proud of our heritage and enthusiastic about our future as we continue today to create the fine art portraits that become heirlooms for the next generation.

We look forward to meeting you soon.
