Let's make some magic together.

welcome, friends


I love it so much I even drink decaf. I also love film, chilly weather, Mexican coke, Harry Potter, crystals, and let's not forget, creating badass images for entrepreneurs who want to connect with their audiences on a deeper level. Like, a real connection, ya know? Whether you're a novelist or a chef, a yoga studio or a restaurant, we all crave real human connections with the brands we love and we can make it happen through the power of photography.

I'm Stephanie, and I like warm hugs ... er, coffee. :)

oh hey!

say hello



all the pretty



you should know





I got my photography start almost a quarter century ago when the only elective still open for incoming freshmen at my high school was Darkroom Photography. Yes, it was all film (digital cameras didn't even exist then!). I continued with it as a hobby while earning a degree in Theatre Studies, and still kept it up throughout law school. It was my escape from the daily stresses of life as a Big Law attorney and it soon became my ticket to freedom, i.e. entrepreneurship. After shooting primarily weddings, I felt called to work with my fellow entrepreneurs. So, I shot my first branding session in 2014 and I've been hooked ever since!

I'm not your typical photographer.



Let's say you spend 30 minutes each weekday coming up with something to share on social media, shooting a quick photo on your iPhone, then applying your fave preset and hitting 'Post'. That 30 minutes a day adds up to 40 HOURS every quarter!! But what if we could create all the photos you need for an entire quarter's worth of daily posts in just ONE photo session? Imagine actually having time to do the things you love most, with the people you love most, all while staying top-of-mind with your customers. Oh what a lovely world that would be. Let's make it happen!

Working with me will save you TIME.



Trust me on this one. Unless you are a professional model, you're probably not totally comfortable in front of the camera. In fact, I'll let you in on a little secret. Most *photographers* aren't even  comfortable being photographed! But you know what? It's not your job to be comfortable in front of the lens. It's MY job to bring our your very best through direction, guidance, and choosing the most flattering light and locations possible to show off your personality and highlight your brand's values. With the right direction, everyone is photogenic. I got you, boo. :)

You might not know it yet, but you are *totally* photogenic.



So what are they saying about you? Not quite sure? Together, we will create a set of images that clearly communicates your brand's story and values and connects with your audience in an authentic way. And we'll showcase all the awesome products and services you have to offer the world, too! A strong online presence with consistent and captivating visual content can elevate your brand, drive more traffic to your site, and literally transform your business and your life. So what are you waiting for? Let's get shooting!

Your brand is what people say about you when you're not in the room.


“Stephanie is amazing and got all the photos edited and delivered so fast! They are beautiful. I'm so happy with the results. Looking at them, I can't think of a single element I would want different. Can't believe it took me so long to actually hire a professional to do this! Thanks again for all your hard work. You are wonderful!”

jordana Paige, designer & business coach SAYs:


"I’d had head shots done so many times in the past with mediocre results, I was dreading the idea of another session. I was familiar with Stephanie’s work and always loved her photography. It was the best photo session I’ve ever experienced. I felt so at ease with her because she’s calm, respectful, confident, and passionate about what she does. My favorite thing about working with her was how open she was to my suggestions and ideas. She’s also great at giving direction which is incredibly important because I need guidance, otherwise I feel awkward and too self-aware. Stephanie’s incredibly talented and truly a pro. I absolutely love how the photos turned out. We ended up with such a diverse set of photos! It's hard to believe they all came from the same session. I hope to shoot with her again soon!"

samantha, voice-over artist & director SAYs:


"Oh my gosh the photos are so pretty! People are raving about our our two new websites with all of your amazing photography! You did such a wonderful job! LOVING THEM!

Michelle, Yoga instructor & studio Owner SAYs:


"I love these photos so much!!!!! Thanks so much for doing my personal branding shoot. I'll be using these as my new headshots and as my main photo on IMDB! Thanks, again!" 

trieste dunn, Actress SAYs:



Starting at $275

As they say in those crime dramas, "Just the food, ma'am."
What? That's not how it goes? Oops.  Well, these are JUST food shoots. No headshots or portraits, m'kay?



Starting at $950

Starting at $375

We'll go over a questionnaire to help nail down your brand’s identity and message, goals for the shoot, and strategize exactly how to maximize the images to best benefit your business. All packages include the final high-res images and commercial usage rights. 

Need new headshots for yourself or your employees?  My style is more "natural light portrait"  than corporate-vibe headshots. I prefer to keep things simple so we'll most likely shoot outdoors (but not necessarily if there's good window light involved).

"Branding adds spirit and soul to what would otherwise be a robotic, automated, generic price-value proposition. If branding is ultimately about the creation of human meaning, it follows logically that it is the humans who must ultimately provide it" - David Aaker
