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.

    xoxo-  Stacey

    Three quick facts about me:

    1. Making people laugh is my favorite.
    2. 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.
    3. 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.
