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 and casual head shots. (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 ten year old son.  I'm willing to wager than within two years they will both be much taller than me.  We live with a Golden-Doodle, a gecko, a rabbit, and a fluctuating number of fish.

I have a gorgeous natural light studio located in Burnsville, MN (which comes in handy during the winter months.)  However, I also really enjoy 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 love when the long winters are over. 

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 photos@stephaniedehler.com or use the contact form found on the website.


I look forward to working with you!
