Aside from capturing your candid moments, I’m a Mom, and an absolute caffeine addict (two things that may or may not be related, I’ll let you decide). You might not be able to tell from the moody tone of my images, but I’m actually really bubbly in person. Having a strong personality actually helps to shape my work – because I think it’s important for your personality to ooze from the images we capture of you and your family.

That’s part of why I prioritize making sure my clients are 100% comfortable in front of my camera (the first ten minutes don’t count though, everyone is nervous for the first few minutes!)

Your BubblyWedding, Newborn, & Family Photographer 

I'm Stephanie

am so glad you’re here! I’m originally from Ohio, so I’m really a Buckeye at heart. But now, I’m located in Batesville, Indiana, where my studio is under construction!

The person behind the camera

1 / 5

I am super high-energy, especially after my coffee, and enjoy being goofy.

Aside from being a photographer I am also a teacher. I previously used to teach first grade and I find that I connect with young kids very well. Currently, I am teaching American Sign Language online to high school students across Indiana. It is incredibly rewarding to be able to teach while also being at home. 

I find it very important to connect with each of my clients and I enjoy the opportunity to get to know each person in front of my camera.

I am married to my college sweetheart. We met in a class while at Ball State and the rest is history :)

He is my calm within the storm, my rock, and the one that keeps me rational. 

I am so privileged to be on this roller coaster of life with him. He defiantly keeps me on my toes and his presence everyday encourages me to take the less "planned" track and be more spontaneous.

He is my biggest fan and supports me and my creative soul.

my kids

I became a mother in 2014 and have had a baby every two years up until 2020. That's 4 kids, if you're counting. I never would have thought I'd have a mini van full of little humans but here I am. 

I am striving to become a better person each and every day for the little humans that live in my house.  

Life is never a dull moment with you have kids in the house. My kids surprise me daily with the things that they say and do but it's the surprises each day that fill my heart full with love.

Throwback alert!

I grew up dancing. As a kid, I spent 4-6 days a week at the studio. Dancing fulfills my soul, even to this day. You will find that I will play music at our sessions to help get more natural movements in our poses. 

Dance has always been a part of my life. I even majored in dance while at Ball State! 

My dance moves have evolved since becoming a mother, however, but I still have a gnarly kick ball change. 

More about me!

I love to travel. I love to see the world. And I always bring my camera :) 

I love the beach, the mountains, the valleys, you name it, I want to visit it. 

If I won the lottery, I would buy a beach house somewhere I could hear the ocean every night. There is something about looking off into the ocean with infinity stretched out into the horizon.

As Seen in:

"Stephanie has been so easy to work with! My kids always love being in front of the camera until it comes to professional pictures. BUT… Stephanie has a special way of getting them to open up and be themselves, which I have been so grateful for. There have been times I go home and think “I hope we got at least one good one.” And there are always so many ‘good’ ones to choose from, because Stephanie does amazing work! "

"Stephanie is great to work with. She creates a fun photo shoot and captures casual and relaxed photos. She has a wonderful way of making everyone smile and have a good time - even the moody teenager! I highly recommend Stephanie - she is very responsive, provides a great variety of purchase options, and quickly edits and provides pictures to her clients. "


“Stephanie is so great to work with when trying to capture the most important moments in your life. We had such a relaxed and fun session. Stephanie was easy going and took the stress and awkwardness out of taking pictures. The location that she chose for our photos was beautiful and was exactly what I described to her for what I was looking for. Her editing skills are amazing and she got our photos back to us very quickly! She was always very quick to respond anytime I messaged her and was always very helpful in answering any of my questions or concerns. I would definitely recommend using Stephanie to capture all of your most memorable moments in your life! We had a great experience with her! I cherish the pictures that she captured for my husband and I.”


"I absolutely LOVE working with Stephanie!! She is phenomenal at capturing great candid photos with young children both cooperating and not! She makes everyone feel at ease, able to get the kids to laugh and look at the camera, and I have a gallery of edited proofs in 24-48hrs!!"

"I love that you made Sophie feel at ease during her session. You were able to capture her natural beauty and nothing felt staged or un-natural about any of her photos. Being able to sit down with you after to talk about packages and ordering options was great, I never felt pressured to order anything that I didn't want. Thank you for all the time you spent with us."


"We had so much fun with Stephanie. She captured our laughter and love in her photos. I am excited to put these photos in our home."

"Stephanie is amazing to work with. She is always there to guide me through every process. I'm always blown away at the images she creates during our session."

"I couldn’t have asked for a better experience! I love the way that you interacted with Calvin!"


"Stephanie was great for my son’s two year milestone! She let him warm up to his surroundings and met his needs (aka snacks and toys). She let him explore and didn’t pressure him or I to get the session done. It was a very relaxed and easy-going session!"

"My session with Stephanie was amazing! I love how comfortable she made the session! My photos were amazing and they fit me and Jacob so well! She captured moments that fit us perfectly! I would most definitely highly recommend her for any type of photo session you need! it was also great to catch up and talk to her!"
