Hi!! I'm Stefanie! I am a Jesus follower and sunset chaser. I’m the wife of the most steady, tender-hearted, intentional, sincere man I know. I am mom to a brilliant, determined, and thoughtful little girl. (that's my family at the top of the page!)
I’m a loud-laugher. And I have the best friends a girl can ask for. I prefer to be behind the camera rather than in front. And I believe that the creamer in the coffee is what really makes coffee good. I hope to one day replace my love of coffee with a love of exercising. A girl can dream.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, although I’m not currently practicing. I loved my social work positions, but felt like God was leading me to pursue photography full time. I believe my work in the worlds of adoption and pediatric hospice have framed the way I see families-allowing me to capture such precious details and moments. I have seen so many stories of heartbreak, but I’ve also seen the power of hope and sharing one’s journey with others. Somehow along the way, God allowed my self-care hobby of photography to become into something I never envisioned: a luxury photography business. Who knew? I feel so grateful and humbled that families continue to invite me into their lives, allowing me to capture their moments of joy, as well as moments of heartbreak. I am honored to be entrusted to create heirloom art that generations will hold and admire.
She's my right hand woman when it comes to in home Newborn photoshoots. Setting up a newborn "studio" in your home requires a lot of loading and unloading, and she is the best. She helps me plan and prepare for your shoot, load the SUV up with props and goodies, unloads and sets up the studio in your home, comforts your newborn, focuses on your newborn's safety, breaks down the studio after the session to load it back up in the car, and even launders the blankets after your new additions have left little "presents". Not only does she do ALL of that, but she also entertains my last minute ideas, and will happily whip up a new bonnet or outfit for your newborn's sessions. Yeah, she's a super woman. And a keeper!
