My goal is to create a beautiful set of authentic images that capture who you are at this moment in time.  After almost two decades, I have the honor of many repeat clients. I love seeing individuals and families grow throughout the years as I capture their milestones. 

For almost two decades, I’ve had the privilege of documenting the momentous occasions in people’s lives. From new babies to new business ventures, I have been there to capture both the personal and professional milestones. 

Through the lens of my camera, I’ve helped families document the moments they experience love, new life, and even loss.  I’ve been present for the raw parts of people’s lives as well as for the celebrations.  It continues to be a great honor to be a part of, and help preserve, all these defining moments. 


Capture the Occasion

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

Tell me about yourself, your portrait needs, or your big day. I can help recommend which package is best suited to your needs. I am happy to set up a call so we can get to know each other. Not a phone person? Email works great, too. I am excited to connect with you and see if I can help achieve your vision.

Plan, plan, plan!

A big part of achieving great photographs is a plan.  
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 it's 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 my daughter Birdie, no matter how nervous you are, it will end up being a great experience! Relax, trust the universe (and Stephanie) to deliver for you so you can enjoy the moment. The fun you have will shine through in your photos. 

The day has arrived and it’s time to get those amazing photos you’ve been dreaming of

Your finished photographs

I, too, have waited for photos and know how exciting the anticipation can be. I try my best to get photos back to you as soon as I can. 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 the photos and it will 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 prints, products, and albums, that is absolutely an option. There is a 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’ve 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 I will send you a contract. A 50% retainer fee holds your date and then we start the 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, Michigan. 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.
