I’m Stefanie, and I create dynamic, personality-driven images for business people like you! Well, it goes much, much deeper than that . . .
I create images that stand out and get the attention your business needs, and provide you with the professional photography that sets you from competitors who are ok with "good enough".
I love my job! I’ve been a leading headshot and personal branding photographer in San Diego, California for over 10 years, and I love working with entrepreneurs & professionals to create highly polished, gorgeous images (and visual marketing) - for print/publication, websites, books, products, and of course, social media - powerful images that let my client’s personality and brand message shine!
I adore my clients! I love seeing their vision for their business, and then crafting a visual method for them to share their story with their audience. It's a beautiful synergy putting our creative energies together collaboratively. With a background in social work, I'm great at making my clients feel super comfortable and at ease. Even those that come to me saying they don't feel photogenic, don't say that after working with me! In fact, they get a big boost of self-confidence that carries with them long after the photoshoot, and transfers into their business and how they see themselves professionally! Goosebumps, right?!
I have high standards. My goal with each photoshoot is to produce images that are top-notch, magazine worthy, book cover ready, and social media sensational! As a personal branding photographer, I help select wardrobe pieces that are most flattering to you. I pose my clients to enhance their best features, and minimize any "worry" areas. I know how to show you in your best light! And each image you select is edited to be the authentic, best version of you.
I get giddy about traveling! San Diego is a great destination, and I've enjoyed working with clients that have come to me from around the states - Pennsylvania, Minnesota, Colorado, and Northern California, as well as international clients from China, France, Spain, and Canada. Need me to come to you? Let me dust off my passport, and let's chat!
I can be a bit of a geek. As a social media instructor at Geek Girl Tech Con San Diego for 3 years, and an ongoing social media teacher since 2013, I’ve got marketing on the mind, and help my clients improve their website optics and visual marketing, as well as shining up their social media platforms.
I’m about the journey as much as I am about the destination. I really do like long walks on the beach, catching a movie, getting my cooking on in the kitchen, and getting out in nature with my camera to create my fine art images.
