When my grandmother passed away, I sifted through my mother's old photo albums, hoping to find a picture that would help me feel closer to my grandmother and ease my pain. After an exhaustive search, I finally came across a photograph that transported me back in time and space to a specific moment I shared with her. I could hear her laughter, feel the warmth of her embrace and the softness of her hands. In those moments, I felt a deep connection with her, and the rest of the world disappeared. This experience was a healing one, and the images still bring me comfort to this day. It was in those moments I came to know the power of photography, and I fell in love.
As a photographer, my ultimate goal is to create images that have that magical "time machine" effect on my clients. My aim is to capture those precious moments that can be revisited through the lens of a photograph, like the smell of your newborn's hair, the softness of their peach-fuzz ears or the pounding of your heart on your wedding day. I want my work to serve you in many ways, some of which may surprise you, for the rest of your life. It is an honor for me to be a part of your family's story, and I hope that my work will touch your family's lives for generations to come.
"I will always recommend Stephanie. She made our wedding magical and we will cherish our photos for a lifetime. She is so talented and makes it easy with her simple and helpful directions for the perfect natural pose. She’s a master of light and a creative visionary who captures every. Little. Detail."
"Stephanie was so easy to work with and fun! She was great with our kids and intentional about creating an environment that would help the kids relax and have fun. I would book her again in a heartbeat. Thank you so much, Stephanie. We’re blown away by the pictures and so many of our friends are obsessed with them as well." -Lilian Her
Stephanie is one AMAZING photographer. Not only is she organized, personable and tons of fun she truly has a distinct and gorgeous photography style. Having someone take pictures of you with zero modeling experience is intimidating to say the least, but with her direction I immediately felt at ease and the pictures turned out very natural. I would highly recommend her service to anyone! - Nikki Ettner
Stephanie was super fun to work with! She made our maternity shoot a lot of fun! She went across ditches, into fields with blackberry bushes, and climbed on things to get some great shots! She's energetic fun and full of spunk! If you want an awesome experience and amazing photos contact Stephanie at SK Photography! Thank you Stephanie for great photos that will last a lifetime! -Katie Wilson
I had first seen Stephanie's work when a co-worker of mine hired her to shoot his wedding, and fell in love their day/session right away! She was the first person I thought of to inquire about booking when I wanted to gift a close friend's wedding photography. Luckily she was available, and willing to make the near 5 hour drive to the Southern Oregon venue. Stephanie was very kind, professional, and took initiative to direct the day to ensure everything was smooth for my friends. The photos turned out gorgeous, and my friend excitedly shared them with me, and sent a photo of the display box the thumbnail drive and prints arrived in, which was also very lovely. Thank you so much Stephanie! Would hire again, 10/10! - Ashley Anderson
I stumbled across Stephanie's photography page on Instagram one day and fell in love with her unique style and her ability to capture such natural, precious moments. She's done my maternity, newborn and most recently, ONE year photos for my baby girl and I couldn't be happier with her work. Not to mention, she's so easy going and fun to be around. I love that she goes with the flow and makes you feel so comfortable (even with no modeling experience lol). I will definitely continue going to Stephanie for any future photography needs. She's AMAZING!! - Vanessa Echeverria
Stephanie is so talented and such a blast to work with! She’s got a wonderful aesthetic, millions of great ideas, and delivers the most stunning memorable photos every time. We look forward to photos with SK photography every year! - Emily Tritsch
How do I book you for a family, newborn, baby milestone, or portrait session?
First, send me an email and let me know what type of session you are interested in and when you are hoping to have it done. If you have any specific visions or requests I would love to hear them! I will send you back my available dates and answer any questions you might have. Once we have settled on a date I will send you a link to my online contract deposit invoice. Once I receive your contract and deposit back your date is officially on my books! Your remaining balance is due on the date of your session.
It honestly comes down to what you are comfortable in and expresses who you are. However, if you want a more styled approach or want help with colors and patterns, here is a link to my style guide to help you coordinate your wardrobe! SK STYLE GUIDE
Please send me an email with your wedding date, your venue (if you have one yet) and tell me about you and your partner! How did you meet? How long have you been together? How was the proposal? I will send you an email back letting you know if I am available for your date and my full package details. If one of my packages would work for you, I would love to set up a consult over coffee (or zoom call if you aren't local). At this time I learn more about your love story, we go over my contract, get a rough wedding timeline worked out, and answer any questions you might have. A signed contract and %50 of your package price is due to book your date.
