Hi, I'm Stephanie.
I'm a natural light photographer and freelance editor based in the Troutdale, Oregon area. I feel privileged to live in such a beautiful corner of the world!
My passion for photography began almost ten years ago after a traumatic and difficult time in my life. I got my first DSLR and started capturing my oldest daughter's childhood in photos. It was a healing experience, a gift from the Lord. I wanted to be able to remember every sweet moment God had given me with her!
Fast forward several years, and I increasingly found myself being asked to take pictures for my friends and their families. Some of these families had loved ones who were close to the end of lives, and I was honored to capture precious memories for them. I began to see that taking pictures is about more than freezing a moment in time; it's about capturing the emotion and love and preserving it for generations to come.
More about me: besides taking pictures of my daughters, I enjoy gardening, reading, ballet, and spending time with my family. I also love genuinely connecting with people so I can capture real emotion and joy. My photographic style is to take a mix of both posed and unposed pictures.
If you live near the Troutdale, Oregon area and would like to chat more about how I can help preserve your precious memories, or if you have an editing project you would like to discuss, please contact me.
