It all started right here...

I started my photography business with a simple family portrait…and I fell in love with the whole concept of documenting life. It was with a family that I barely knew and we scheduled the portraits on a late Friday afternoon in February inside their home. As I was wrapping up the session the children were getting excited about dinner. The parents explained to me that it was “leftover and movie" night. Every Friday this family would have that week's leftovers and watch a movie. I was intrigued by this concept! What a wonderful memory for these kids to have when they became adults. It was during that very first session when my approach to family portraits was born. I decided to stay for a few moments longer and photograph the family preparing for their special tradition. It was these photos the family ended up choosing to hang on their walls, not the posed family portraits. Even after all these years I still strive to photograph memories first and foremost while getting a few “formal" group shots in there as well so that every family can have the best of both worlds.

The In Betweens

My speciality are the "in betweens" where the subject is just being them. These are the photos I capture between the posed we are talking or walking from one spot to the next. Each family session will come with a handful of these "in between" shots.

The Posed Shots

Every family session will also include the "posed" photos where the subject and camera are aware of each other.

Maternity - Births - Newborns

The passage into new parenthood is terrifyingly beautiful and documenting this amazing journey is something to behold. I am qualified to document pregnancy, birthing, and newborn sessions.

They are our ever so faithful companions. Nothing quite compares to the unconditional love they possess for those humans who are their world. This utterly devoted love deserves to be documented so that we can remember them for years to come.

"Stephanie has photographed our family every 6 months beginning in 2005 when our first son was born. I only trust her to photograph our family love. Her ability to capture our children's personality and the love my husband and I have for our family is remarkable. This makes it easy for my family to open up and shine when she turns on the camera!" I highly recommend her to anyone wanting to document a moment in time. Our family is forever grateful." Cindy Freeman, Client 18+ years
