I have been a professional Columbus maternity, newborn, and family photographer for over 7 years. I reside in Lewis Center with my husband and two kids. My journey into photography first started as a child in 4H, where I learned to look at photos in a different way. After that, I took some film courses in high school and worked as the sports photographer during college. From there, it was a matter of coursework, enthusiasm, education, and lots of practice. I have been able to train with some of the best newborn photographers in the world, including the wonderful Ana Brandt, and have been published in several magazines. And now I get to be on the other side, as I educate other photographers in the area of newborns.

It is so rewarding meeting new parents and working with babies. Those days of raising my own newborns were so fleeting, no matter how many people told me to cherish it. It was gone in the blink of an eye and it was my favorite stage. Getting to photograph new babies takes me right back and fills me with joy. 

I am honored you are considering me for your family photographer. Please know that I take care of my clients and want you to absolutely love your photos. It is important to me that when you look around your home at your images, you will be filled with love and gratefulness. Thank you for trusting me in this process! Now don't be shy, say hello!

THE STUDIO

I do all of my work out of my commercial space in Columbus, Ohio. The studio is conveniently located right of Polaris Parkway. It is stocked full of props, maternity dresses, baby wraps, accessories, and backdrops. I even provide extra diapers, snacks, and drinks for you!  There really isn't much you need to bring with you for a session!

A snapshot into my life

1 / 3

These two right here! They are the reason I work so hard. At my core I am a wife and mother. I am in the midst of a great balancing act while working and supporting my young family. I enjoy being involved in the lives of my boys; attending swim lessons, volunteering in the classroom, doing projects, and just hanging out as a family. I am very thankful for a career that allows me the time to be with them. Thomas is my oldest. He is sensitive, smart, and curious about all things science. Matthew is my youngest and loves to please his teachers. He is a determined little guy and isn't one to give up easily!

MY BOYS

2 / 3

I wouldn't be where I am today without my husband, John. When we met, it was a whirlwind romance and we were inseparable. The only challenge was the number of dogs we had to care for between our two homes. Living an hour apart meant lots of car rides for the pups. We got married the year after we met and became a blended family of four dogs! Since those early days we are down to two dogs and one cat, but have added two sons to the mix. John is a very hard worker, but also likes to joke around. He has trained the boys how to trick Mom! 

MY LOVE

Family vacations have become one of my absolute favorite things! We don't travel often, but do love to plan a yearly vacation. John and I honeymooned in St. Kitts and babymooned in Maui. After kids came along, the vacations changed  a bit, but fun nonetheless. Some of our favorite memories are from the days at train museums and Thomas Land in Massachusetts. When my oldest was born we started collecting Disney gifts cards and finally got to cash them in when the boys were 4 and 6. We had the best experience at Disney World and I am so glad we got it in before COVID hit. John and I would love to go back to St. Kitts for our 10 year anniversary that's coming up.

Stacey was so great to work with! She was so patient and understanding with our fussy newborn baby and still managed to get amazing shots! We love our final product! She also was extremely fast with getting our pictures edited and uploaded!

Our experience with Stacey was wonderful. She was patient, professional, friendly, and made us feel so comfortable as first time parents. She and her assistant explained everything they would do and provided all essentials to have a preemie newborn for the shoot. I could tell they really cared for him and made sure his safety came first. We got really great photos of all the poses we wanted and she always asked for our opinion! We couldn’t have been happier with our family and individual photos of our son! I’d recommend Stacey to everyone!!

WOW! Stacey is really a very good professional photographer and her photo studio is literally a magic space. It has everything you need-- lighting, steamer, clothing rack, hangers etc. Stacey is extremely talented and hands on taking photos of newborns. She makes it a seamless, fun and creative atmosphere. 10/10 will be booking for all of my future shoots.

Stacey was so awesome to work with! We ended up purchasing extra photos because we couldn't choose, they were all so amazing! Our 14 month old is terrible to try and get professional photos and she got some great smiles out of him and even the serious shots were so beautiful! Her studio is comfortable and easy to locate! I would absolutely recommend her for any photo needs!

We had a great experience with Stacey. She did such an incredible job! She is very creative. She accommodated our request and was able to come up with a great set up, exactly what we were envisioning for our newborn photoshoot. She was so well prepared that we were able to relax the whole time we were there and she kept our little one completely content and comfortable. I highly recommend Stacey!

Stacey is simply great! She is easy to communicate with, always responds promptly. And she has magic working with kids. My toddler is a little shy with strangers. But Stacey got her engaged quickly. At that night, my daughter told me "taking pictures with Stacey is so fun, mommy"!!! And we love the outcome which is 100% what we wanted!

Stacey is a talented photographer who makes every newborn session a joyful experience! Handing your little one over to someone else can be scary, but Stacey has such a calming and reassuring presence, there is no doubt that your baby will be in good hands! She pays attention to all the details, and works ceaselessly to get the perfect shot. She's full of unique ideas, so each newborn session is different and personalized! She offers a variety of packages to meet your needs and budget. I look forward to using Stacey for all my baby pictures to come!
