 ABOUT Stephanie

Chocolate, Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, Furry Animals, Crosswords & Jeopardy 

Most days, you can find me chugging coffee like it's going out of style and exploring a new part of the city with my little guy (unless it's after bedtime, in which case I’ll either be diving into a new book or catching up on one of my many favorite TV shows). I am mostly known for remaining calm under pressure and for my quirky, self-deprecating sense of humor, but patience is a constant work in progress.

I love serving the world by empowering other badass bossbabes, raising an empathetic human being, and using photography to magnify your light within. My work has been featured both in print and online, including Style Me Pretty, The Today Show, 7x7SF, Modern Jewish Weddings Magazine, & Health Monitor Magazine, but my greatest professional joy comes from capturing YOUR best self and showing the world everything you have to offer.

A Few of My Favorite Things

 

Ravenclaw vs. Gryffindor

I know deep down I’m probably a Ravenclaw. But the Sorting Hat would take my love & admiration of Gryffindor into consideration when placing me, right?

Film

35mm, medium format, instant, I love it all! Film, to me, looks the way memories feel. I shoot it for a lot of my personal work and would be happy to shoot some film for you, too. All you have to do is ask!

Baking

And more importantly, eating what I bake.

Travel

It doesn’t always have to be to faraway places or exotic locales. Just seeing something new, if it’s only an hour away from home, is always invigorating for the senses and leaves me feeling refreshed every time.

Movies & TV Shows           

I love getting lost in a good story, no matter the format. Plus, cinematography is a huge source of inspiration for me.

Guinea Pigs

They’re seriously the best pets ever. We currently have two: Juno & Violet and they’re smart, friendly, affectionate, and sweet. Someday, I want to open a guinea pig/small animal rescue and take them ALL in. <3

Anthropologie Catalogs

My dream is to live inside one but I’ll settle for just shooting one (hello, Anthro…can you hear me?)

Books

I know, that’s a broad category. I truly love them all, though. Books are my friends, and a few of my bestest friends are historical fiction, biographies, sci-fi/supernatural, political commentary, memoirs. Honestly, there’s no ‘bad’ kind of book in my book!

Mexican Coke

My most favorite treat. It’s pure sugar, I know, but can we just go ahead and change the recipe for American Coke already? Real sugar and caramel for color ftw.

Crossword Puzzles & Jeopardy

I swear, I’m not 85. I’m just an old soul when it comes to hobbies.

Knitting

See? Grandma hobbies. This is more of a fall/winter one for me though. Who wants a pile of yarn in their lap when it’s 90+ degrees and your San Francisco apartment doesn’t have A/C? Nobody, that’s who.

Yoga

Wannabe yogi in training over here. It’s a challenge to stay committed to a daily practice but thinking about it as time for a mind-body connection rather than just another workout helps me stay motivated

Photography is the closest thing we have to an actual time machine.

here’s what I believe…

 

I believe photography has the power to transport us to another time and place in an instant.

I believe in laughing till your abs are sore.

I believe in your story, and I believe the world needs to hear it.

I believe in doing well by doing good.

I believe food brings us together and creates a community.

I do NOT believe in saying cheese, but I do believe in eating it. Lots of it!

I believe we owe it to ourselves and our loved ones to be IN the photos.

I believe a photo is worth WAY more than a thousand words.

I believe a solid dose of nature is good medicine for the soul.

I believe in YOU.

I believe you & I can make magic together.

I believe love is the purpose of life. To love and be loved, what more do you need?
