I am so passionate about capturing what is fun, unique, and beautiful about each senior I work with. This isn't just a job for me, it's a career I love! My soul thrives off of seeing them glow when they realize just how amazing they really are. And when the light is just right? My heart leaves every session, renewed and happy! My sessions are about laughing and having fun! You've waited a long time for this, and I want you to savor every moment!

I am located in the heart of the Sonoma Wine Country, in Healdsburg, CA...but love the chance to visit new places and love to travel!

SENIORS ARE THE

of my business

Hi! Thank you so much for checking out my website! I have loved photography for as long as I can remember. I hear stories all the time about how people got a film camera in high school, and long story short, they have made a career. My story is a little different. Although I loved taking pictures, it only went as far as taking photos for friends and the kids I nannied for. I never really believed that I could make it as a "real" photographer. I went to college l and got my phlebotomy license (yep, I also know how to draw blood!) and loved my job!

Four years ago, I met the love of my life. Once we got engaged, I started looking for the most important aspect of the wedding to me: a photographer! After having her photograph our engagements, wedding, and family photos, I realized how much I missed being behind the camera. With my husband cheering me on, I blew the dust of my old Canon Rebel, and the rest is history! Hours and hours of classes and practice later, I am so blessed to call myself a photographer!

When I am not behind my camera, I am having fun with my family, watching Grey's Anatomy, eating Mexican food, and taking in a Giants game. I couldn't survive without ice cream and a hot bath at the end of a long night! Oh, and I think I can quote pretty much every episode of Friends!

about

giraffes

I know it's silly, but I LOVE giraffes! I think I get more excited than my kids do when we go to the zoo! For some reason, they just look so friendly...and then when Brandon Belt from the Giants got the nickname, I was sold! 

fall

I love the changing colors of fall, the smell of my apple cider candles and warming up the house by making soup. I also love the smell of fresh rain, wearing my favorite scarf and decorating my home! 

flip flops

I love being comfortable and carefree... and flip flops always remind me of that! Whether it's a spontaneous road trip or a drive out to the beach, flip flops are what I always grab!

“When Stephanie arrived she was so sweet and full of energy. She has a special eye for the most beautiful photos. Every place she had me pose was unique and beautiful. The photos were all so amazing, and it was awesome to work with her. Everything is so much better when you work with someone that clearly loves their job, and I can assure she does! She will make you feel absolutely comfortable, and make this once in a life time experience the best possible."
-Emily

Stephanie is the best photographer I have ever run across. Not only is her finished product great, but her demeanor and professionalism are wonderful. The end product of her work with me was better than I could have hoped for. 
~Chelsea

Stephanie is so awesome! Not only are the quality of her photos amazing, but she makes a point of creating a comfortable atmosphere during your session. She has an eye for finding the perfect background, as well as the perfect pose for each shot. She makes sure to take a variety of pictures as well so you have a little bit of everything! After my time with Stephanie, I felt like an absolute princess, which is something I feel that every senior should get the chance to experience! Having senior photos taken is a very important moment in our journey to adulthood and there is no photographer that is better to spend that moment than Stephanie.
