I'm a family photographer located in Bradenton, Florida.  But who says you have to come to a stuffy studio out here to have great family photos?  In my experience, the best family portraits happen when the entire family is relaxed and having fun!  So why not pick your favorite park, beach, lake, preserve, or even your own back yard as the backdrop for your next family photo session?  You choose any location in Manatee, Sarasota, or nearby County and I'll bring my camera.  Not sure where to go?  I'll be more than happy to help you find the perfect place for your family portrait session.  Still want that studio session?  No problem!  I've just opened my home studio and have a great space for a studio family session too!

Don't worry about the kids either.  I'm a mother of two, grandmother of two, and a veteran teacher.  We can take our time, walk about, play some, and just get to know each other while I photograph them.  I promise, they will be just fine.  And if all else fails, I can teach them to make funny faces to get them giggling and smiling again!

"We Always come away from our sessions with a variety of AMAZING photos."
-Cathy H.

Once you have chosen your favorite images from your session, I will custom design your photo album, wall art, and other keepsakes for you.

One of the first questions I usually get is, "What should we wear for our family photos?"  If you are struggling with what to wear, I can help with that too!  I'll send you a wardrobe guide with my welcome packet that will help plan your wardrobe.

If you have a place in mind for your family photos, that's GREAT!  If not, or if you just aren't sure, I'm able to help you choose the perfect location for your family session.  I've photographed families all over the Manatee, Sarasota, and Tampa Bay areas; including the Downtown Bradenton Bus Station!

I'll edit all of your images.  My goal is to keep you looking like you; so I focus on enhancing the color in your images while removing any temporary blemishes you may have.

It doesn't matter how many are in your family, there is only one fee for your session and it includes all of the photography time.  Most sessions last between 45 minutes and an hour and a half.

What's included in our session?

"We hired Stacey to do a beach photo shoot of our son and his girlfriend. The photos turned out so beautiful!! All of us are beyond satisfied with the results and will definitely be calling on her again. Stacey was very responsive to my questions and emails, she picked a perfect spot for the photos, she was kind, personable, professional, and easy to work with. I really cannot say enough good things about our experience. Hire her - you will not be disappointed!!!"
-Michelle T.

I believe your photography investment is just that, an investment. To this day, when our family gets together, we pull out our old photo albums and we look through them.  We marvel at the clothes and hairstyles, laugh at old stories, and reminisce about those passed on. 

Your photos not only capture moments in your family's lives, they show the love you have for one another.  Your photos will be cherished for a lifetime and beyond.
