Personal and documentary style family and wedding photography. Give me all the chaos. Hello! I’m Stephanie! Chicago folks, do not fear!

After graduating from Columbia College with a journalism degree, I quickly dropped my pen, and picked up a camera. I have always loved storytelling, which I found I could do much better with imagery than words. My fascination with people is rooted in a strong love of psychology, and I try to capture the most genuine moments using natural light and minimal retouching. Two years ago our family made

I met Josh and Lisa separately many many years ago. Lisa and I worked at a bar together (RIP Rocking Horse) and Josh used to go to the bar. They have both been long time friends that I absolutely adore. They just renovated their house, and now have these two cute kids and I am so happy for them. 🤍

Sweet baby Jude was born to the best fam. She’s a lucky lady. Danielle + Pete were in my birthing class for my first kid, and it’s so cool to see their sweet fam grow.

I cannot tell you how much I love these newborn/family shoots where it is stress free. No “getting ready.” No “smile for the camera.” Just play and be as you are. Especially three days after giving birth. Thanks for having me .

In July of 2020, the heart of the pandemic, we decided to sell our house in Chicago ourselves. I did random showings here and there, and we got a last minute call on September 9th for a showing. It was my birthday and we were going to go out to dinner but instead we ate at home on the patio while a couple looked at our house. A little while later we sold it to that couple and moved to Denver.

Stacy + Peter moved in and had twin boys shortly after. We’ve kept in touch since I still get all my tax mail sent there (sorry guys) and I had the awesome experience of photographing them in my old house.

This was such an easy shoot because A.) Look at how cute they are, and B.) I knew the way the light hit at what time and I knew how good it looks when that dappled golden hour light hits just right. I have photographed my kids so much in that house and It was wild to be in a space that was so familiar, yet different. We hung those shelves and we sat on the same bar stools.

I really love what they’ve done to the place and look at what a beautiful life they have made inside the walls! I am so happy that house went to a good home. Thanks for letting me document you guys 🤍

I sold my camera to a guy in California, and then took some of their family photos. I loved this super playful session on a hot hot day in LA. Thank you for having me, + . Your home and kids are too dang cute. Follow them both for great photos and sweet content.

I love all my wedding couples, but these two in particular really got me. This Minneapolis wedding was so cute and sweet and everyone was so friendly and excited for these two to tie the knot. They are goofy, fun, unbelievably kind and generous. The best part is that they live in Colorado and one day we are all going to hang out again. I loved this wedding and felt more like a guest than a vendor. Congrats to Caitlin + Brian!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a wedding, but now that I’m in the heart of wedding season, I have a few backed up from this year and last year that I’m excited to share.

This is Part I of Haley + Noah’s gorgeous wedding in Chicago. I love these first moments of the day when you can feel the excitement in the air and everyone is getting ready and feeling good!

Though I love Chicago weddings, the travel is getting a bit out of control, and next year I’m going to be very focused on Colorado + New Mexico weddings, so if you know anyone, send em’ my way. Thanks!

A few weeks ago I reached out to a wonderful non-profit called to see if there was anywhere I could donate photo services. A Precious Child assists children and families facing difficult life challenges such as abuse and neglect, crisis situations and poverty. They are currently involved in helping families who lost everything in Marshall fires, including family photos. We put a call out for some free sessions and a few families responded. I loved meeting them and was inspired by their strength and perseverance. I also got some great tips on home insurance living in Colorado. Hoping to work with this non-profit again and again! If you have anything to spare, it’s a great organization to donate too. And if you are feeling extra generous, I have a link on my site under “gifted sessions” where you can contribute small amounts to help support my continued effort to do shoots like this. Thank you!

I have like, twelve weddings backed up from the past two years that I haven’t shared because I’ve been doing a push for families, but I wanted to share this one from last October. Chris + Kevin had to postpone their wedding more than once due to COVID and other things. Then a few weeks before their big day, they got word that they were finally getting a baby (!!!) They had a wild few years leading up to this event, but it went off without a hitch (mostly) and the love they have for each other and their new daughter was just beautiful to see. The love everyone had for them was filling the whole room the entire night. I loved this wedding and this couple, and I wish them many wonderful years together! Special thanks to my second shooter, , because she really nailed this one— as always. Planner:

I met Audrey () about 20 years ago while working at a brunch restaurant together. I have wanted to take pictures of her in her gorgeous Connecticut home since the minute I saw pictures of it.

Audrey is one of the most creative, vibrant, and kind women I know, and her eye for color, patterns, design, painting and fashion is out of this world! She did all the stencils, painting, wallpaper, etc. herself, and I am just in love with it. I was fortunate enough to spend a night and day at her house, falling in love with her children, and following them around the house, and catching up with my sweet friend. We had a blast!

Did I mention she also owns a restaurant () with her husband who was unfortunately out of town in a fishing tournament when we did this shoot? So just add incredible baker and cook to her list of talents.

Please follow if you want to get a glimpse into her beautiful brain, amazing style, and fantastic taste in music.
