Art is all around you.
It’s the ordinary moments.
The way his eyes light up when he sees you.
The simple little snuggle and the way you you can't help but smile when he's near.
The moments that happen a hundred times a day but never get old.
These are the moments that you’ll remember.
The ones you’ll look back at someday and realize that although they may have felt ordinary at the time, they all added up to a truly extraordinary life.
I'm Stephanie - a creative entrepreneur, portrait artist, and blogger passionate about creating art out of ordinary moments.
I believe in cherishing what matters and savoring each and every day.
I believe that stories should be told with authenticity and discretion.
I believe simplicity is best and connection is key.
I believe classic is better than trendy.
I believe paper and ink trumps pixels on a screen.
I believe art is best enjoyed tangibly.
I believe it's a thousand ordinary moments that make up an extraordinary life.

I’ll help you choose your clothing and location, so every single element in your photographs work together.
Your wardrobe and portrait location will be carefully selected in a way that will enhance who you are, not distract from it.
Focused on connection, not getting everyone to smile at the camera.
Of course, you want one beautiful camera-aware photograph, but the majority of our time together will not be focused on that. Instead, your photographs will be focused on connection - the way you look at each other, the sweet giggles you always want to remember, and the love that you share.
These one of a kind images become iconic representations of your family at specific seasons of your life.
From the moment you inquire, my goal is to do all of the work for you, so you can simply enjoy the process.
Because what is more special than looking at a photograph of yourself and your little one in the house that you brought her home to, or in your favorite outfit that he outgrew far too quickly?
Presented as museum quality finished artwork.
The goal of any photograph is to be enjoyed. Unfortunately, life happens and many prints never get finished. Instead, they sit in a drawer or a “to do later” pile. Or, maybe you do stick your photograph in a simple frame constructed of non-archival materials, and your beautiful photograph immediately begins to deteriorate. Since my goal is to make the process simple and easy for you, each photograph that leaves my studio is presented as a finished piece of artwork guaranteed to stand the test of time.
This is how they'll remember.
My portraits are thoughtfully crafted, iconic, and intentionally timeless. They’re more than simply a Facebook profile picture; they’re family heirlooms. The photographs I create are designed be framed in your home and cherished for generations. I work closely with all of my clients to ensure their photographs are preserved in a way that won't fade over time or get lost on a hard drive.
Because your story is beautiful, and it deserves to be told and remembered.

"This box. The proofs. I'm dying.
These are so perfect I can't even put it into words. I can't stop looking at them. The LIGHT. The greens. The poses. I'm serious, my brain can't process how much we love these.
THANK YOU for always over-delivering for us. I can't wait to order prints!
I'm not sure there's one picture I don't just love!!"
