Hi! I’m Stefanie – with an “F” instead of a “PH”!
Growing up I took pictures of everything, particularly in high school me and my two friends would go through at least one disposable camera a week on regular everyday stuff! Then, once I got my first DSLR, I was more interested in landscape photograph. However, after a friend asked me to do their engagement photos years ago I was officially hooked on portrait photography and moving into doing it professionally. I think it’s the social interaction and learning your story that I love about photographing people – be it in 1hr, an entire day or year after year as I watch you and your family grow, and that includes your pets! I take a casual approach to my photography and I hope you have a great time along the way. I could go on and on about how I’m passionate about it or the style I have, but I think you should just look at my photos and decide for yourself.
I love working with people who feel our personalities will connect, it just makes the whole process easier and better for everyone! These people often end up being ones who value photography and know that it’s important to capture life’s moments, but aren’t too concerned with getting every shot on their ‘list’ and missing the moments in between. If I walk away with new friends, that’s the best feeling ever because not only have I got new amazing people in my lives, but I can provide my new friends with amazing gifts they will cherish forever!
Because we’re all a little quirky… Here’s some fun facts about me:
Right-brained with a dash of left / I love Ocean breezes / I have a Mini Dachshund named Farfel and she’s my world. Yes I get lots of questions on the name! / Typical Virgo, minus the shy part / I will stop and dance in probably the most inappropriate or awkward situations / My favourite colour is pink, but once you meet me you’ll know I’m definitely not a girly girl / I don’t drink coffee or tea… or anything warm, that includes hot chocolate / My LUCKY number is 13… I was also born on Friday the 13th at 6:49… Weird. Also, in 2013 my birthday will be on Friday the 13th again. Pretty stoked / I like to be active, but I’m not great at any one thing… I do dabble in biking, hiking, swimming, skiing, yoga(ing), inlining, and lately a sad attempt at running. / Love fall… It’s pretty and I’m a jeans and hoody kinda girl. / I’m pretty keen on meeting you and learning your story
