Working with a team of moms means we get it. We know how uncomfortable pregnancy can be. We know how it felt those first few weeks with a newborn when you're sleep deprived and exhausted. Our goal is to have you show up as you are, relax, listen to your favorite music, and we will take care of the rest.
Hi! I’m Stefanie
I have a deep appreciation for chocolate, super soft blankets, and country music.
I'm so glad you're here. I'm a wife, mother of 3 humans and a collection of fur and feathered babies. I grew up with a camera in my hand chasing the chance to freeze time. Capturing details and emotions I knew would have otherwise been forgotten.
Another love I've always had for as long as I can remember is babies. I remember sitting on my uncle's couch when I was about 9 or 10 and they let me hold my cousin who was a few weeks old. I could not contain my excitement. I sat there fascinated by how tiny and precious he was. My aunt recommended I go to school to be a nurse in the nursery since I loved babies so much, so that's what I did. I worked on the Birth Center for 8 years, "catching babies" that were minutes sometimes seconds old. When I became pregnant with my son I wanted regular hours. The first few months I remember being shocked how fast the time was going. The urge of wanting to freeze time and moments came rushing back. When he was about 6 months old I started offering sessions as a small business and I haven't looked back. They say if you find something you love you won't work a day in your life. That's what photography is for me. It's not just a passion it's part of my soul, everytime someone books a session I do a little happy dance that someone is investing in my dream.

Wardrobe and Planning
After sending the creative or collective fee you will receive a questionnaire that will help me to customize your session. You will be able to choose a dress from my wardrobe, and will receive a welcome guide with tips for styling your family.
If you choose to add on hair and make-up the artist will be eagerly waiting to work with you at the studio. You just show up sit back and enjoy being pampered, listening to your favorite music, enjoying your favorite drink. When you are feeling your most beautiful you will spend time with your family taking it all in while I take pictures of the love you share.
Using photos of your space I will help you choose which products and framed prints are the perfect fit for you and your home. We can even design a beautiful gallery wall with custom frames. About 6-10 weeks later your artwork will be ready for you to pick-up and enjoy!
