I can always gauge a good session by how messy my hair and makeup are by the end. The photos turn out gorgeous while I look as if a hurricane touched down on my head. 😂

I blame the light. I go where it takes me—under bushes, over fallen trees, in the sand. I am obsessed and constantly staring at it, analyzing the way it moves. When I finish a session, often families always remark on how much fun they had. My favorite reaction is, “I can’t believe you got that!”

I go where the light takes me...

my philosophy: FIND your light

Colorful beach portraits that showcase your true, candid togetherness.

"Our go-to photographer at the Jersey Shore"

"Stacey took our family photos (11 people!) on the beach, and they turned out beautifully! She made the photoshoot fun and relaxing, and gave us a variety of photos (from more formal ones to silly ones, too). We had such a good time with Stacey, and some fantastic photos to show for it!"

"She made the photoshoot fun and relaxing"

"We love our family beach photos! Stacey beautifully captured our newly blended family which has expanded to 14. She was super responsive with getting back to me, and updating me along the way in case we had a rain delay. Stacey is professional but not stuffy, had creative ideas, was great with the little ones, and maximized our hour together. I highly recommend Stacey to provide your family with lasting photo memories!"

It's all about the light.

Your life is colorful and bright and your memories deserve to be captured that way.  I love playing with the sun’s natural light to create glow or lens flare. The way it shines through the trees challenges me with a game of the hide and seek to find balance between the rays, the wind affecting the foliage, and my lens. It's a true art form that I take pride in providing for you and your family's cherished memories.
