Welcome! Please don’t be shy to tell your story, connect with me, ask questions and grow in your art!

My name is Stephanie, and I am a dessert-loving, crafty natural light photographer, CM Pro and stylist in the greater Phoenix, Arizona area. I work with many business owners, bloggers and fellow photographers and specialize in food, product and still life imagery. 

Ten years ago, as an Animal Science graduate from Texas A&M, I thought I was on the road to studying Veterinary Medicine. However, life plans changed, and who knew I would use my passion for Science, food and animals to form relationships with the local farmers & artists I have come to know in Arizona.

My love of homestead life, minimalist style and anything made by hand makes my kind of photography even for meaningful to me.

Capturing life-styled details, I jump at the chance to photograph a gorgeous tablescape, dinner party, food and styled details.  Working with business owners and the products they have created is so much fun.


My motto for every session is to keep everything “Beautiful, simply detailed and stress-free for you”.


Some other fun tidbits about me…

I have a life goal of publishing a book, or photographing a cookbook!

I love to collect vintage things, paper & crafts…& secretly can’t stop buying baskets, cutting boards & cake plates.

Summers in Napa, and the farmers market in San Francisco are where I’d want to go for a quick getaway.

Are you interested in my style of photography? 

Please let me know if I may assist you through a session, workshop or my eBook! Thank you
