Well Hello There!
I'm Stephanie. I've lived in Oregon since I was 11 and consider myself a native at the ripe age of 29. 10 years ago I met the love of my life when we were both serving tables at Macaroni Grill. We were introduced by a co-worker and she said to me, "This is Kyle. Kyle loves the ladies." Then Kyle turned to me and said, "No, the ladies love Kyle." I don't think I ever walked away from someone so fast in my life! haha I had it in my head that I was never going to speak with that cocky man again...and then to my surprise a few days later he asked me on a date. I at first declined and told him that I had a boyfriend (which I really did have a boyfriend!) He then replied, "Well he's not invited." I couldn't resist his charm and I went on that date as friends. About a week later we were back at work together and he asked me, "Have you broken up with your boyfriend yet?" Later that week, I did just that.
We have been married now for 8 years and have two amazing, smart, beautiful kids together. He is always my biggest fan and supporter and I honestly would have never had the courage to start my own business if it wasn't for him. I'm forever grateful that he supports this crazy passion of mine. And yes, he's still full of one liners that make me cringe and yet swoon at the same time.
Some of my favorite things (other than photography of course) are coffee, wine, Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, singing in the shower, Broadway shows, bare feet, warm nights on patios, hot tubs in the snow, and adventuring all over the beautiful PNW. 5 years ago I never would have dreamed I'd be at this place in my life. Being my own boss, making my own hours, and getting to stay home with my kids is the greatest gift. I owe ALL that to my amazing clients that keep me busy year round. Thank you guys from the bottom of my heart.
