Hello! I'm so glad you are here!
 

I'm Stacie, an artistic soul throughout!

I love colors and pattern and how they can invoke a feeling or emotion. I'm inspired daily by the most basic of things and love being able to incorporate that into my photography and design. Life is beautiful when you just open your eyes and look around you!

Since childhood I always knew I wanted to be some sort of artist when I grew up. I spent a lot of time as a child drawing, creating and taking pictures on my awesome purple 110 camera that my mom got for me from Avon - guess they are more than just beauty products! And although I don't feel "grown up" yet, I feel blessed to be able to have accomplished this dream by spending my days as a photographer and designer.

I have the most amazing family! I live in North Liberty, Iowa with my handsome husband, Dan, along with our wild and crazy boys, Will and Zac. To keep our home even more interesting we also have a fabulous dog, Monty and a beautiful cat, Roxie, who even after 8 years of living together still can't be within 15 feet of each other without giant cat/dog drama! When we aren't living the regular chaotic life at home we love spending time with family, spending time outside and enjoying the relaxed life on the lake in Okoboji.

Now that you know a little bit about me I invite you to reach out to me so I can learn about you! Whether you are starting your life out with your perfect partner or documenting your growing family, I'd love to capture those moments for you so you have them for a lifetime to cherish!
