Hi! I'm Stephanie! I'm a Twin Cites-based portrait photographer specializing in babies, children and families; but I also love photographing high-school seniors, casual head shots, and weddings. (They're always a fun and welcome addition to my repertoire!)
I'm an urban-dwelling married mother of two kids: a teenage daughter and a preteen son. I'm the shortest one in the family. We love animals around here, happily coexisting in a modestly small but charming c.1919 home with a Golden-Doodle, a cat, a gecko, and a fluctuating number of fish.
I have a gorgeous natural light studio located in NE Minneapolis, MN (which comes in handy during the winter months.) However, I love shooting outside any time of year, whether it's at a park, in the woods, in the city, or at a client's home.
I draw inspiration from music, traveling, reading, art, gardening, food, social media, and spending time with my friends and family. I tend to binge on guacamole and crime documentaries. I have a fascination for old things, and history. I don't like being cold and I love hibernating inside during long winters. I ALSO love when the long winters are over.
I believe that light is the single most important factor in capturing a gorgeous image, and that it doesn't matter how lovely your surroundings are without it. The right light can turn a into a seedy back alley into a stirring space of interest and intrigue. The wrong light can allow a garden oasis to fall flat.
I get excited about meeting new clients and I am always so happy to see the ones that I've come to know. I love to hear about any ideas or hopes you may have for an upcoming session and I am eager to share mine, too!
If you are interested in booking a session or would like to learn more, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or use the contact form found on the website.
I look forward to working with you!
