Welcome! Thank you so much for stopping by!
Design Studio by Stacy is a business many years in the making. I started taking a real interest in photography when I graduated college with an art degree in 2004. I was photographing family and friends mostly then while I worked as an art teacher full-time. During this time I started to build my skills, experience and portfolio slowly over many years, getting busier as the years went by. In 2015, I went full-time with my photography business and I haven't looked back.
Now, I am a photographer with many years of experience chasing around little kids and getting the natural smiles; calming brides and helping wedding parties have a great time; hanging out with some really cool teenagers wanting to express themselves through great portraits that tell their story; and shushing newborns back to a deep calm sleep capturing them at their most precious stage.
I am also an artist and a teacher. As my business evolved, I began I offering Paint & Sip parties as well as private events for all ages. I still offer these parties occasionally but my business is mostly based on photography now. But contact me if you are interested in setting up a private event.
I hope you enjoy exploring my website. There is lots to see! I have a really hard time only sharing a few photos when there are so many happy faces of people I have come to adore.
Have a wonderful day!
