Meet Stephanie

I could go on about my love of photography, but being a photographer, that is a given. I would rather take this time to let you know more about my photography style and me.

My style is simple and classic. I keep my props very minimal and use simple setups in the studio. I like to use colors that are neutrals, earth tones, and a few pastels mixed in. I want personalities and family connections to be the focus of your photographs. Not props and bright colors.

I also believe that if you are investing in professional photography; that your photographs should be timeless and always have a place in your home. We can discuss color specifics and how they will complement your home décor in more detail as your session approaches.

I also am a mom to two little ones. A daughter that is too smart for her own good, and a son that is beyond stubborn. Like all parents, I love talking about my kiddos. Chances are I will share a story or two about them at our session. It also means that I am well versed in all things like Disney, PBS, and Marvel comics, and can always find something to talk about with little ones.

So here is the boring business stuff… I have been in business since 2011. I specialize in newborn photography and have photographed over 300 newborns. I also love photographing children, pregnant moms, and families. I have a studio in Northfield that is filled with a ridiculous amount of newborn props – really, it is ridiculous.

I look forward to hearing from you!

She is amazing at what she does! She made our almost 2 year old daughter have a blast with her recent photo session, she normally fights us on pictures. I recommend her to all my friends and family. She gets photos edited quickly and also gets sneak peeks out quickly too while you wait patiently for the rest of your session. She’s great with communication and working with your schedule for sessions. Her studio is absolutely beautiful and very organized!

She’s amazing! Stephanie have us the best newborn session today. We were totally comfortable and at ease and she’s just perfect with patiently getting your baby to settle and get cozy for posed pictures. She has a million amazing props in her cute studio, and even has snacks for your toddlers. I was totally impressed by the whole experience and would highly recommend if you not only want great photos, but a relaxed and comfortable experience for you and your baby.

Stephanie took newborn photos of our 2 week old daughter, and she was phenomenal! She did her homework ahead of time and guided me towards colors and textures for the props that would fit in well with our home decor.

At the shoot, she incorporated our 2 year old for some precious sibling shots, and even had her studio equipped with toys and snacks to keep kids entertained.

Something I really appreciated was how patiently she waited to get the right shots. She shushed and rocked our infant and calmly waited out the fussy moments in order to get the perfect pictures.
