Hi! I’m Stefanie. Mom, business owner, photographer, and coffee addict. I aim to tell a story with my camera, and truly believe that everyone has an incredible story to tell.
I seek to capture real life and stop time because it just goes so darn fast. I want you to remember the smile on her face as she twirled in her tutu. The superman cape he refused to take off. The way your baby’s skin felt at 7 days old. The way she grabbed your finger and wouldn’t let go. The sparkle in her eye, his toothless grin.
I’m kind of a sap. I cry at commercials. I cried putting away the last of my daughter’s baby clothes. I cried so hard during the movie of Les Mis that I didn’t even notice Russell Crowe’s acting.
Forget airport reunions. They totally do me in.
I have 3 kids, but based on the current noise level it sounds like 10.
They’re all girls, so there’s never any hot water in my house, I dry a lot of tears because something is never fair, and I’m pretty sure we’re responsible for 90% of shoe revenue at Nordstrom.
I love the beach. If the beach has a bar, I’m even happier.
I have this bizarre ability to alphabetize any word. That’s right, I can put the letters of words in alphabetical order. No there is no use for this ability in the real world. But I’m fun at parties.
I believe you can see someone’s soul in a black and white photograph.
I love music. I love music with meaning, but I’ve been known to bust out with some Vanilla Ice from time to time also. I was raised in Maryland but knew I was a Jersey Girl the day I realized I knew every lyric to every Springsteen song.
I hate laundry. In fact I’m pretty sure that one day when I end up in a straight jacket, it’s because the laundry did me in. And I swear my kids put clean clothes in the laundry just to drive me crazy.
My grandmother’s french onion soup may be my favorite food ever. And I wish I was as good as her in the kitchen. (I burn things)
My favorite holiday is Thanksgiving. I get to spend a week with our favorite humans and we’re actually IN the Macy’s Parade! That’s right, keep your eyes peeled for us marching past the cameras, usually in crazy costumes.
Before this amazing gig I was the director of marketing for the American Cancer Society (an equally amazing gig).
I love this job. Love love it. I love getting to know my clients, connecting with them on a personal level, and making them smile. My clients have become dear friends and I thank my lucky stars every single day for them.
And I think life is a fine balance of crazy fun, insane hard work, deep love, and belly laughter.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope to be able to tell your story soon.
