I have always been passionate about photography but once my kids were born I found myself snapping their every move, trying to make time stand still. I blinked, and then...

I am a wife + a mom to two awesome kidDOs, Jaxson and Brynnley.

There is something so real and raw about capturing families just as they are at this very moment.

Hey, I'm Stefanie!

Stefanie was so much fun to work with and she knew exactly how to work to settle a newborn. She did a great job capturing such a special time in our lives and the pictures turned out beautifully. She made it so easy to work with her and we would recommend her to all of our friends and family.

Five star reviews

Stefanie’s ability to make you feel comfortable and relaxed during sessions has made our experience with her truly enjoyable. This is coming from someone who has typically dreaded having his picture taken. Our kids also fed off of Stefanie’s fun and patient personality, resulting in beautiful pictures that we’ll cherish for the rest of our lives. Stefanie’s talent is unmatched and I hope she’ll photograph our family for many years to come.

what the dads are saying...

Stefanie has a way of making what could be a stressful event, painless and fun for everyone involved. She’s really good at what she does, and it shows in her carefree, energetic approach. Stefanie manages to capture all parties in their truest form. When my wife told me we were getting pictures of our newborn with Stefanie, I actually was looking forward to it.

what the dads are saying...

Our first photo session with our little Heidi was fun! Sometimes getting pictures taken with kids can be challenging. But Stefanie made the whole experience smooth and enjoyable! Definitely doing another session in the future! 

The pictures turned out so nice! Highly recommend.

what the dads are saying...

Stefanie was amazing! She came into to a messy and hectic household, quickly surveyed the house, and identified where the photos would be taken and even helped us clean up. Her work was very professional and what I appreciated even more was the efficiency. She took about 800 photos in 30 minutes which gave us plenty of options when reviewing the photos. From a guys perspective, this was a fun, no nonsense, no corny posing, photo shoot that was well worth it. Like most guys I didn’t love the idea of my wife booking this, but overall I was very pleased and happy she picked Stefanie.

what the dads are saying...

Stefanie has done two shoots with our family. One of which was the day my son was born. She made us feel like family and it was an incredible experience. I would highly recommend her for any kind of photos you need, family photo shoots being number one as her love for family shows!
