Hi!!! I'm Stefani!

I have been a photographer since 2008, learning the tricks of the trade in a self-taught kind of way (I took one class though!), and have learned so much and basically have grown so much because of photography. For me it comes down to documenting a moment in your life that is precious to you: whether it is a photo of where you and your family are at this point in time, or on the happiest day of your life at your wedding. I present these moments in a beautiful and creative way that you will have forever to look back on. And I LOVE being able to bless you like that!

a little about me

I am a Christian and I believe that my calling is to bless people with my photography. I am a middle child in a family of eleven kids (all from the same two people!), so I am surrounded by amazing, talented and wonderful people who are almost all entrepreneurs.

In June of 2016 I married Dan, "the bank guy": we started talking at a bank on my 27th birthday, he was the teller and I was the customer, he asked how my day was and the rest was history! 

In December of 2021 we welcomed our sweetie baby pie Desmond to our little family, and he lights up our world. He is a happy busy boy and I adore his little personality, and I love love love being a mom. Dan continues to be amazing and is the best dad ever and the most supportive husband in the universe. 

To add even more excitement and blessings to our life: we are expecting a little girl to join our family in June 2024, and we can hardly wait! 


In the spring of 2022 I started making polymer clay earrings as a hobby and completely nerded out on it. I enjoyed it so much that I decided to start selling them as a little side hustle. You can find my handmade jewelry on my Etsy page at Stefani Rose Boutique!   

these two (almost three!) people are my world

Super random facts about me:






24 million

the number of times I've watched the Office or Friends. Roundabout.

cats in our household

the approximate number of card games we have been able to play since we had a baby (yikes) 

times I've been to Hawaii. (Not even close to enough times) 

current number of weddings I've had the honor of photographing (yes I keep this updated!)

toys that make their way to the floor every day because we have a toddler

There is so much I love about photography, but what I enjoy the most is getting to work with people, both new and returning clients. I absolutely love to make people laugh and create candid moments for photos, it's seriously one of my favorite things (I think I've mentioned that like 20 times throughout this website). I've got an arsenal of ideas and prompts to make the experience fun and easy, and you will see me joking and laughing with my clients throughout my photo shoot sessions. This aspect, combined with the beauty of light and color, is why I do this. And then there are the sweet moments! Ah! There is nothing more beautiful than a shared secret smile or loving glance, and I think it's the coolest thing in the world that get to be the one to capture it!!
