Like most starting out in photography, I began my journey with landscape and other familiar pieces. Posing and working as a subject with the camera were not only foreign concepts, but uncomfortable ones. As such, my husband and I hired a photographer whose style worked well at the time, but now looking back, was an ill fit. The lack of viable portraits to decorate our new home became devastating; and I would love to save that agony for any client.
The value of portraiture is extremely understated these days. With selfies and filters, the art has taken a true backseat. Which is not only sad, but ill fitting. Shedding a light on this art, both personal and corporate, has become a true passion and a true asset to our clients. Being proud of images, feeling the desire to show off family, events, and other images are of endless value.
I have decades of photography experience, 5 in portraits alone.
I am a passionate cat mom.
Portraits are my favorite types of photos as every person is different, which makes each image, and client, beautiful.
I listen to all music and feel that music helps bring a version of ourselves to the forefront we normally do not get a chance to see.
I laugh at EVERYTHING. Laughter is my coping mechanism and ice breaker. If I can make someone laugh, it is a win for me.
Photography is FUN. Can it be intimidating, of course, but like everything else in life, its nothing to take too seriously. Trust me, it comes through the camera.
I am loud. My volume button is stuck at 10 so I promise you cant loose me. And if you cannot hear me, you sure will see me (I am 6ft tall)

"It was a wonderful experience working with Stephanie at SMPhotos. I had so much fun at the photo session and Stephanie made me feel so welcomed and comfortable. She was also able to help me out when I was in a time crunch. She responded right away and we were able to set up an appointment. I will certainly use her again for any upcoming projects I may have. Give SMPhotos a try you will not be disappointed!!!"
