Stacy exceeded all expectations for my son's 6-month photoshoot. The shoot itself was so chill and casual, and she turned our photos around in less than a week! We will forever cherish these pictures and will absolutely be reaching out with her for his 1-y

I met Stacy through my best friend. My SIL and I used her for family pictures with my parents before 2 grandkids moved to Arizona. When we came back to Illinois to visit, I contacted her for more family pictures with my in-laws. Stacy did not hesitate to drive to a new location. She was kind, patient, creative!

We hired Stacy for our engagement photo session which turned out incredible! She made the whole process comfortable and enjoyable. We have hired her to photograph our wedding this summer as well! Hire her and you won't be sorry.

Stacy is wonderful! We have used her on multiple occasions for our family photos, and she is spot on for capturing us and our little ones. Her sweet and kind demeanor is able to move quickly, especially with our little ones short attention spans! Her turn around time for producing the final product was faster than expected.

Stacy exceeded all of my expectations with my mommy and me photo shStacy exceeded all of my expectations with my mommy and me photo shoot!! She is a highly skilled photographer, who captured the sweetest moments of me and my 10 month old! Being a mom has a been a dream come true, and I now have these precious memories to look back on forever. She knew how to engage with my baby and get the absolute best candid shots of her! She welcomed us into her adorable studio, and even let us look through her client wardrobe to find the perfect outfit for my daughter! Stacy is kindhearted, and extremely professional. I would highly recommend booking with her for any photography needs! I can’t wait to have Stacy capture more special memories of me and my little family!
