Hello! My name is Stephanie. A born & raised German girl, I am now living my dream photographing momma’s to be, newborns, and families in Northern Virginia, Washington D.C. and Maryland.
As a mother, I know how precious time is and how fast our little ones grow up. My daughter’s newborn session is what truly sparked my passion for photography. Words cannot express how thankful I am to have these special memories captured in beautiful photographs to cherish for eternity. This is the reason I am so passionate and dedicated to capturing breathtaking images for you to remember for the rest of your life; your story deserves to be remembered and be told from generation to generation. I believe that photographs are more than a piece of paper. They are a connection to our past and a gift to our future. They are the representation of all that the mind forgets and what the heart will always remember.
