Seeing as this is my first blog post, I figured it'd be a good idea to kick off blogging with an introduction! So, hey, y’all! My name is Stefanie and I’m a high school senior and engagement portrait photographer in Canton, GA.
When I’m not at my desk working on photos or various business plans, you’ll usually find my TV-obsessed self in my favorite chair watching Netflix or some show I’ve DVR’d. Any fellow Downton Abbey or Parks and Recreation fans out there? “Treat yo self!”
I’ve got a knack for paying attention to details, overanalyzing everything, and getting scared easily. (I literally screamed while watching a particularly suspenseful moment in Finding Nemo that involved a shark.)
I was born and raised in the South so southern staples, like fried chicken and buttermilk biscuits, are my comfort food but I love trying new foods. (Let’s be real, I just love food in general!) In fact, I wanted to be a pastry chef when I was in high school (but then it changed to an art teacher, then archaeologist, etc, etc…).
Photography as a potential career option came into my life my last year of college while I was taking a black and white film class. I loved spending hours in the darkroom getting to create tangible work. I remember the first time I ever developed a print of a photo I’d taken…watching the image slowly develop on the paper was one of the coolest things ever.
My photography style is warm, colorful and timeless. And my passion is to provide quality, tangible products and to document milestones for clients so they can be busy living in those moments!
Here are six things you probably don’t know about me:
1. I love Cracker Barrel’s Coca-Cola cake. LOVE IT.
2. I’m a homebody. Period.
3. I’m always dreaming of getting to visit England again.
4. Brownie a la mode is my favorite dessert—see, I told you I love food!
5. People usually have a 2-3 second window when I’m alone in front of the camera to get a nice shot of me or else I start involuntarily making weird faces…Thus the picture above!
6. “Quality over quantity” is one of my favorite sayings.
Wait! Before you leave, I have a question for you! What’s your favorite food?
