Hi! I'm Stacey.

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.

When my middle son was born nine years ago, I realized 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 filmmaking 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 capture the details of your ordinary, every day, moments at home and the huge life-changing ones in a way that allows you to relive the best parts of these days for years to come. 

I'm a family and newborn baby photographer and short filmmaker based in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

More about me:

  • Making people laugh is my favorite.

  • Traveling to new places (and eating the food!) makes my heart sing.

  • 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.

  • I wouldn't trade the life I have for the world.


I look forward to helping you hold onto this exact moment in time - the bonds, quirks, and love that make your family’s story its own.

xoxo-  Stacey

Here’s a little of my family enjoying our recent (and huge!) trip to Spain and Italy.

PS - While I consider it a great honor to attend a baby’s birth and have loved every moment of those I’ve photographed and filmed over the past few years, due to my own family’s schedule and needs, I’m afraid I am no longer accepting new birth clients. For your birth photography, I highly recommend booking Albuquerque Birth Photographer, Lori Martinez. I’ve worked beside her at multiple births and not only does she do beautiful work, she’s an incredible professional. I am proud to be her back-up birth photographer.
