Lifestyle and Family

“Sometimes you will not know the value of a moment, until it become a memory”- Dr. Seuss

My family portraits and lifestyle photography style embrace the quote “Sometimes you will not know the value of a moment, until it becomes a memory.”  My goal is to help you see  art and beauty in a moment.

What does this mean? It means that I enjoy getting to know each and every person I photograph.  We work together to find the right location, the right time and even the right clothes- so that your photo session becomes a valuable memory that you can cherish.

Up until this past year, I thought of it as a burden when family members would say ‘Don’t forget your camera, Stephanie!’ My job was to take pictures of other people’s families, not my own.  Now that I have lost two of my grandparents, I realize what a blessing it has been to be a photographer.  I have hard drives and back up hard drives and prints of all these amazing families (including my own).  Families that have lost members, families that have grown members- they are all part of who I am.

I am excited for this 2018 summer, because it means that a whole new photography season is upon us. I can’t wait to hear from you!
