  • Hello, there! Thank you for visiting. I'm a photographer based out of Austin, Texas. I specialize in personalized family portrait sessions. Please take a look around to get an idea of my work. I'm here to capture your story. It's your life, up-close.

Carsyn & Friends

The goal – photograph various combinations of 11 people (which included two babies, one toddler, one getting-over-a-cold-so-I-can’t-get-too-close Grandpa and one very sweet (but deaf) dog.

It was the “Carsyn & Friends” show! Chaos, lots of laugher and lots more outfit changes. Thank you to Heather, Sam, Carsyn, John, Angela, Kate, Kim, Chuck, Kira, Suzanne and Steve for letting me capture those moments. And full disclosure – with over 900 photos taken, there were lots of fun outtakes with this bunch.

Outtakes such as the levitating Christmas wreath or all the kids making a dash for the decorations or Kate making a grab for Carsyn’s bow.

Calgary Photographer - Judging by the big smiles and outright laughter in these shots it’s sounds like your session was successful. Those twins look absolutely delicious and I love the shot with the toddler in the “starry necklace”.

Heather - This was an amazing morning. Stephanie brings pure talent, energy, fun and professionalism to her shoots!
Thank you for capturing the beauty of our day!

Max & The Bubbles

I have a lot of holiday portrait session photos to share with you all – but since I need to wait until those nice folks send our their holiday cards (and not spoil the surprise of what images they got) – as a hold over – here are some pics of Max from yesterday. Bubbles in the morning, and the close-ups are from riding the free train at the Triangle in the afternoon.

Westyn & Family – Portrait Session

Say hello to Shannon, Steven and Westyn Owen. I met this lovely family at the park behind Central Market on a cloudy Sunday afternoon. Westyn (6 months old) was full of gummy grins and couldn’t get enough of the stacking blocks. Mostly because she wanted to keep eating them.

I have two favorite outtakes – this candid moment during an outfit change and this moment when Westyn decided to eat Christmas.
