Hi! I'm Stacey.
I’m a North Carolina girl who loves the New Mexico skies, mom to three sweet boys who keep me on my toes, and wife to my super-hot best friend. (I can still say that after 12 years of marriage, right?)
After 7 years of happily teaching elementary school in two states and two different countries, I put down the chalk and picked up a camera.
In my new life as a mom, I found such joy in photographing the simple moments of our days. I set out to learn as much as I could about photography and film-making to document this overwhelming feeling of love I have for my family.
Along the way, I realized I loved helping other families hold onto their moments with meaningful photos and videos, as much as I loved creating them for my own.
I photograph and film the images that speak to our hearts - the ones that show our personalities and our connections, and remind us how beautiful our real lives really are.
I capture the details of both the simple, every day, moments at home and the huge life-changing ones (like bringing your baby home!) in a way that allows you to relive the best parts of these days for years to come.
I'm a family and newborn portrait photographer based in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I help families hold onto this exact moment in time - the bonds, quirks, and love that make your family’s story its own.

I love to travel. Please inquire for more details on booking your session outside of New Mexico.
I look forward to helping you hold onto your favorite memories for a lifetime.
Three quick facts about me:
- Making people laugh is my favorite.
- Traveling to new places (and eating the food!) makes my heart sing, and I'm equally thrilled to get home and sleep in my own bed.
- Even though I'm often overwhelmed by how hard it is, being a mom has been my dream job for as long as I can remember, and I wouldn't trade the life I have for the world.
