Seeking Mindfulness Through Photography

Greetings and welcome to my little corner of the web!

As a visual storyteller, who graduated with a BFA in Photography from the prestigious School of Visual Arts in New York City and with over 15 years of experience as a professional artist and lifestyle family, wedding, and event photographer, I invite you to step into a world of boundless creativity and infinite possibility, where the power of art and photography to inspire, uplift, and transform lives is limited only by our imaginations.

As the wife of an engineer and a proud mother of two wonderful sons whose boundless energy and infectious laughter never fail to light up my world, I am blessed to be part of an adventurous family that loves exploring the natural beauty of our world. From visiting national parks to camping in the wilderness, we find inspiration and joy in connecting with nature and each other. This love of exploration and connection is something I bring to my photography, capturing the beauty and emotion of life's most cherished moments.

Whether I'm capturing the heartfelt emotions of my own children or someone I meet for the first time I approach each project with a sense of wonder and a passion for creative expression.

So whether you're in the market for photojournalistic event photography, enchanting fine art portraits, stunning wedding photography, or simply a chance to connect with a creative soul who loves to explore the world, I invite you to join me on a journey of discovery and delight - where every moment is an opportunity to celebrate the beauty and wonder of life.

Stani was such a success at my wedding! I got married on 6/17/17 at Mountain House Estate in 100 degree weather, but that didn't stop her from wanting to take the most amazing shots ever and I'm so glad! From the very beginning, Stani was so sweet to work with. She would check in with us often and make it a point to get to know us as a couple. She listens, cares, and caters to each couple to make sure she delivers the finished product they'd hoped for. If you're considering Stani as a photographer, the decision-making process stops here! She's it!

All I can say is WOW!! I hired Stani to take photos of my home for my interior design portfolio and some shots of me for my industry and they turned out amazing!! She is a true artist and really knows how to capture a moment and make it interesting. Love your work Stani!! Thank you for making me look and feel beautiful and for all your gorgeous shots of the house. You are the best!

I cannot say enough amazing things about Stani! She has been photographing our family every year for 7 years. She has a magical way of capturing those special moments when our entire family feels so relaxed that we can really be ourselves and the result is beautiful every time. Stani is wonderful with both young children and larger groups like our big extended family. She consistently chooses beautiful and unique locations that complement our family's style. Thanks to Stani we have beautiful artwork in our home and unique holiday cards every year. I would trust Stani to photograph each and every event for our family, no matter how big or small. Thank you Stani for all the beautiful memories!
