I started my photo journey by documenting the in between moments with my daughter 6 years ago. I quickly found the value in the unposed because they are the only way I know how to freeze time and relive fleeting moments. 

Throw away any past experience with awkwardly held smiles and poses. I'm here to tell your story and freeze your time. 

"I highly recommend Stephanie for any of your photography needs! She made my whole family feel relaxed and was able to capture some of the most gorgeous pictures my family has ever had."

The Verrell Family

"Steph did an amazing job making me and my girls feel comfortable in front of the camera. She captured that sweet sisterly love my daughters have for each other for us to always look back on. We had so much fun and didn't once feel self conscious. I would recommend her to all of my family and friends."

Courtney, Emma + Zoe

Steph's mini sessions are so fun and I loved every image! 

The Dow Family

Steph is soooo great! She made it so easy and comfortable... can't wait to do it again!!

Karisa Woodworth

Seeing Stephanie in action I totally trusted her with our very first family photo shoot. I have major trust issues creatively, so that says a lot! I KNEW she'd KILL IT!!

Hank, Stacey + Monroe

"These pics literally make my heart happy! Steph! I'm in love with this!"

James, Athena + Blake

I offer a wide range of session options. Portrait and family sessions begin at $150. Maternity and newborn sessions begin at $200, and I offer bundled packages. Periodically throughout the year I will schedule mini sessions starting at $100, and I will post date + time availability for those on my Instagram. 






This is Your Investment

Life is full of fleeting moments that we never want to forget. Before we go over pricing and details just know that I never want you to skip a session due to cost. I'm willing to offer flexible payment plans that fit your needs. Shoot me an e-mail, and we will customize a plan just for you.

In home newborn sessions are some of my favorite times with my clients. I really work as a fly on the wall during these sessions.

We are truly on your new baby's time, and I'm there to document the love and awe you have for your family's new addition. I set aside a generous amount of time for these sessions so that nothing is rushed, and we keep you and baby as comfortable as possible.

Whether it's a graduation or headshots, portrait sessions are the perfect opportunity to capture your personality. These sessions are truly all about you- your sense of humor, beauty, and interests.
I want you to see your gallery and recognize yourself- no over processing and no gimmicky props. Just your candid self in a beautiful setting. These are really fun and there's no need to be nervous being in the spotlight. We will chat, laugh, and just have a good time.

Mini Sessions are available seasonally only.
I will announce dates and times on my Instagram: 

Family Sessions

There's so many fun milestones to document with your family. I want to see your family grow and document it every step of the way. Forget what you've experienced with awkward poses and stiff smiles. We are here for the real moments- the giggles, the cuddles, and all the candids in between.

I am always exploring new locations for my families, and I can help with any styling needs you may have.
