Colorado Springs family photographer offering beautiful photos and short films
Capture this season of life with beautiful photos and films. Hand crafted films are available as an option with your customized photo session. Photos are special, but films capture the details that you won’t want to forget.
I love working with families who want to capture life as it is now. Because in the blink of an eye, “someday” becomes a year from now. Throughout the tiresome days, tiny but meaningful moments are happening within your family that you won’t want to miss out on capturing. Things you don’t know you’re missing are the things you’ll always want to remember. The kiddos grow so much year to year and it is important to capture them in this season of life, whatever season that might be.
RELAXED AND NATURAL POSING
“My husband and I are awkward, will you tell us what to do?” Of course! I don’t like to do unnatural or super posed shots, but I will give you some light direction on how to stand or position yourselves so there are no awkward photos. I’ll encourage kids to relax, play and snuggle up with mom and dad. Tickle fights, silly words, or big bear hugs happen on the regular to capture the most authentic and genuine smiles. Don’t worry I’ll let you know if you’re doing something funny with your hands, or have a goofy face. I’m here to capture joy while making sure you look good!
As a family photographer and a mom of 4 kids, I am drawn to those candid moments, but I understand that most clients want classic, look at the camera and smile shots, too. We will do a mixture of both styles, with various backgrounds so you have a variety of images to choose from in your final gallery. I know my favorites won’t always be your favorites. If you prefer more candid than posed, or vice versa, just let me know either at booking or at the start of your session and I’ll make sure I capture photos you will love and cherish.
CAPTURING BEAUTY IN THE CHAOS
After having 4 babies and photographing newborns and families for almost a decade I know how chaotic picture day can be. One kid didn’t nap, the other doesn’t like the shoes she’s wearing and the toddler has a big bruise on his head after falling (don’t worry I can edit that out)! Your session might feel chaotic, but there is no need to stress. I am capturing it all, the beauty within the chaos.
A photography session should not only produce beautiful images, but it should also be an enjoyable stress free experience. Online Booking, joyful sessions, optional short films, and digital downloads make everything simple and fun!
Hi, I’m Stephanie, your Colorado Springs family photographer
I’m so glad you’re here! I am a family photographer with over 10 years of experience specializing in family, maternity, birth, newborn photography and short films.
We probably have a lot in common. I am an Air Force wife and mother to 4 children(and 2 dogs). Most days feel long, but I know the years are short. I am just trying to slow down time and create joyful memories with my family. My mornings usually start with a kid or two waking me up. I start each morning with a cup of coffee. I think the outcome of my day solely depends on if I am able to finish my cup before it gets cold.
Stephanie has such a keen eye for capturing raw emotions and details. She takes a mix of candid and posed photos, which I love! It really helps you to see each personality being represented.
My family has used Stephanie for a variety of sessions (maternity, birth, newborn, and family pictures) and we were very pleased with ALL of them. I’d highly recommend Stephanie to capture your family’s memories!
Stephanie is amazing! She made us feel at ease the moment we met her. She was professional and down to earth, and we will definitely be using her again in the future. Our photographs came out more beautiful than we could have imagined. I’m so glad we found her!
