duluth newborn + portrait photographer
There is no greater honor than holding new life in my hands, just days old, and preserving those memories for ages to come for that little one’s parents. As a mother of two beautiful girls, I cherish every image we have of them. If I could create a museum of love for them, it would be filled of every portrait that I want to portray my boundless love through. Time flies by so fast, the investment of frozen memories for a lifetime is priceless.
My family is my life, I balance the ever-changing path between motherhood, being a wife and staying true to myself. And who am I beyond that? Well, I love travel … I can’t wait for the day when we can travel more. I love spending my days outdoors, on the lake, in the woods, and just soaking up the sun. However, I live in Minnesota, so I’ve learned to love the cold as well through loving the snowy world we live in for six plus months out of the year. I’m perceived as a rather serious person when I’m not smiling, but I have a unbound happiness that fills me up when I remember to stop thinking so much!
I hope to capture that same happiness that I feel in your family and preserve your priceless memories for a lifetime!

what our clients are saying
Stacey had already taken pictures of us as a couple and we knew that she is simply the best in what she does, so we were thrilled that she had the time to do the newborns session with our one-week old baby boy. Stacey truly understands how to make the most of every photo session, even if a fussy baby and overwhelmed new parents are present. As her assistants stated during the session “Stacey, has the magic touch when it comes to newborns”, this proved to be absolutely true. When we watched the slide show of the pictures we were overwhelmed, the pictures did not only captured one of the most precious moments of our life, they also carried all kinds of emotions we felt at this special moment. If you ever think about investing in good pictures to capture an important life event, do so with Stacey. We are so glad that we have those gorgeous pictures to relive this precious moment of our life over and over again.”- The Konklin Family
Stacey has photographed our growing family for the past four years. I am always amazed with her ability to capture moments that are so incredibly revealing and genuine. Her patience and gentle demeanor create a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. The quantity and quality of images always surprises me (though it shouldn’t). Opening a newly posted gallery is like opening a Christmas present. Selecting “favorites” is an impossible task as each new image becomes my favorite. Stacey, thank you for what you do!- The Lewis Family
“We just LOVED the family pictures Stacey took! In all honestly, we thought the shoot went terrible. Our two year old was being an absolute….well two year old. We were sure it was a bust and that he never looked at the camera once. Stacey was very patient and took the time to get some amazing shots. When we saw the proofs we both dropped our jaws. The pictures were AMAZING. Had we not been there to see him terrorize the studio, we would have been convinced he was the ultimate model. In reality we don’t know how she it, but we are grateful she did! We have recommended her to all of our family and friends. She is unique, professional and above all else she listens to what you want and delivers!”- The Hipp Family
Having family pictures taken with Stacey is a dream! She makes something that could be stressful really fun and enjoyable! We’ve been lucky enough to have her take pictures of both our babies when they were days old and every year since! She knows how to handle babies and toddlers. However, the reason we keep booking sessions with Stacey is her artistic talent and ability to capture our family and grasp our relationships with each other through her lens. Opening a photo gallery from Stacey is like Christmas morning – the anticipation is killer and when we get to see the images, we are overwhelmed with happiness and appreciation!The Crist Family
