My goal is to create a beautiful set of authentic images that capture who you are at this moment in time. Fourteen years into my career, the majority of my portrait clients are repeat clients!

For the last 14 years, I’ve had the privilege of documenting momentous occasions. Through the lens of my camera, I've watched children grow up and get married, a mother celebrate the birth of their son. I helped document a women celebrating the good news that her cancer was in remission. I've watched people start businesses, get engaged, marry the person they love, the list goes on and on. I get to be present for the raw stuff as well as the incredibly happy stuff. And I am so, so honored to be part of these moments.

My mission

I would love to learn all about your hopes and dreams!  I can help guide you on which package is best based on your needs.  If you're not a phone person, we can stick to email!  I am just excited to connect with you and see if I can help achieve your goals!

Plan, plan, plan!

I feel that a big part of getting great photography is not achieved by flying by the seat of my pants.  I love to help choose portrait locations, help tweak the wedding timeline, recommend vendors, and offer any other advice to help you have the best experience ever! Whether its a family session or an all day wedding, I am here to help! 

I'll send you "all-the-things" for your big day - location ideas, outfit inspo, you name it!

the Big Day

The day is here and you're probably having mixed emotions.  I can tell you from my own experience of having portrait sessions with Birdie, no matter how nervous you are, it will end up being a great experience!  So sit back, relax, trust the universe (and Stephanie) will deliver for you, and just enjoy the ride!  The more fun you have, the better your photos will turn out!

the day has arrived and it's time to get those amazing photos you've been dreaming of!

Your finished photographs

I will get photos back to you as soon as I can because I too have waited for photos and know how exciting the anticipation can be!  If you are waiting for wedding photos, within a few days of the wedding, you will receive a sneak peek of the highlights from the day so you can make your big announcement with professional photos! 

I know you are dying to see those photos and it'll be worth the wait!

Print Ordering

All collections include a full resolution digital download and with that I send detailed printing instructions (ahem! do NOT print at local kiosks like Walgreens!).  If you wish to have me help you with your prints, products, and albums, that is absolutely an option!  There is a super cute shop attached to your gallery with all sorts of gifts, albums, cards, and prints!  Even cute metal holiday ornaments!

Want to get your favorites printed to display in your home?
I got you!

Working Together

Contact me to learn specifics! After you receive my detailed information + pricing guide, all you have to do is say, “Hey! I want to book!” and then I will send you a contract. A 50% retainer fee holds your date and then we get to start planning!

I take my job very seriously. I know you are investing quite a bit of time, energy, and money to have beautiful portraits made. If the weather is not ideal, I will likely reach out to postpone your shoot, either by a couple of hours, or maybe we simply pick another day. 

Portrait sessions usually take between 2-6 weeks and weddings take 30-90 days. It takes a lot of time to hand-edit all your images, and I want to make sure that every one is perfect for you! So please sit back and relax, and I will get your images over to you as soon as I can! 

All packages come with a full resolution digital download.  With this, you can order your own beautiful prints and products. I send printer recommendations with your gallery.  You also have the option to order through your gallery website. 

My home base is Harbor Springs.  I request that most shoots take place within a 20 minute radius.  If you wish to have your shoot or wedding take place outside that area, contact me so we can discuss your project! I am up for an adventure!

Absolutely!  These are some of my favorite events to capture!  Please contact me to learn more.  Depending on your project and my availability, I can even consider smaller Saturday packages for you!
