"Be bold enough to use your voice ... brave enough to listen to your heart ... and strong enough to live the life you've always imagined."

A little about the person behind the lens...

My name is Stephanie and I was born and raised in a small suburb of Kalamazoo, MI. I am mother of two beautiful little girls (you'll see them a lot on my website) they are the reason I pick up my camera every day.  My family and I have moved all over the midwest for my husband's career so I have been lucky enough to have a career that can travel with me...but I do believe we can finally say we have found a place to call home; here in Texas!  

I am a natural light photographer so you will find me chasing the sun.  My favorite is shooting lifestyle photography...I love capturing intimate moments between family members, whether it's babies little fingers and toes, a kiss on the cheek from your little one or a mother gently brushing hair from her daughters face.  I believe that every moment should be frozen in time because one day that moment will be gone and all you will have is a picture to look back on. 

I love warm summer nights, Michigan football (Go Blue!), spending time with family, documenting life, anything chocolate, and graphic tees.  I love cooking dinners, and with cooking comes a big glass of wine and listening to my Bob Seger Pandora station as loud as the volume will go!  I love to travel to the beach, but my favorite spot in the entire world is Gull Lake, Michigan...there is nothing better than spending your day on a boat in that gorgeous lake with your friends and family.
