Hi I'm Stef!
I was the kid growing up that turned everything into a craft. Nothing was allowed to be thrown out because it could be used as crafting supplies. I looked forward to 3 things in life; art class, gym class, and coming home to play with my dog.
Well I haven’t changed much! I have focused my passion for creativity into photography, I love to be active and competitive (especially on the tennis court), and I can’t wait to come home each day to the cutest yorkie/jack russel mix on the face of the earth, Fin!
Photography became a more serious part of my life Senior year of high school when I started shooting my friend's senior portraits. Before I knew it I was getting opportunities to shoot family portraits, maternity photos, children and babies, engagements, sports, and eventually weddings! Throughout my 4 years of college at Millersville University I worked to build my business on the side while also playing tennis and shooting sports photography for the Millersville Athletics Department. I majored in Art & Design with a concentration in photography, as well as minored in Entrepreneurship. Through multiple internships, freelance work, and with a laundry list of photgraphy classes under my belt, I was able to graduate with experiance in portrait, event, athletic, commercial, and marketing photography. When May 2014 came along, I could barely wait to start using those skills and experiences to build my business into everything it could be!
First and foremost, I want to make sure you're having as much fun as I am with your shoot! Then we can focus on getting the quality and unique photos that capture your unique personality/personalities. I tend to have a more candid style with my work because I'm way more interested in capturing your individual personalities and interests than a stiff, posed, fake smile. If you're looking for a studio backdrop and a desk with a fake apple to take your pictures at, I'm probably not the best photogorapher for the job. I love to get to know my clients throughout the shoot and make sure I'm reflecting them the best way I can. Whether that means I have to wade out into water or climb a tree to get those shots, you can count me in.
I love to meet new people, I love to take pictures, and I'd love you meet you and take your picture :)
