This is Me.....

A little bit about me….

So, in case you were wondering about the lady behind the camera, let me introduce myself.  I’m Stacey of Stacey Markel Photography.  I have loved taking pictures for as long as I remember but my love for photography grew stronger when I had children.  I loved capturing every possible moment of my son and daughter's lives as babies.  My daughter is often my go-to subject if I want to try out a new location, new poses, etc.  I think because I took so many pictures of my son when he was younger that he does not want anything to do with my camera as a 10 year old.

In 2012, I entered a challenge on Flickr that was started by LensProtoGo.  Each week, they would choose a theme and then the challengers had to take a photo within that theme.  The first few weeks of the challenges, I was very nervous but I received some very nice feedback from the other photographers (many of whom were pros!).  Eventually, my photos were chosen as top photos of the week.  This experience allowed me to gain confidence in my photography.    

Late last year I had a few friends ask me to take their photo for their Christmas cards so I said, “yes”.  I was SO nervous but still glad I did them because I had so much fun!  They gave me the encouragement to pursue my dream of starting my own photography business.  I opened my business in February of 2013 and have been having such a blast meeting some wonderful people!  I typically schedule about 2-4 sessions a month since I have a full-time career as a safety consultant for an insurance broker. 

My favorite subject to photograph, by far, is children, but I also love taking couple and family portraits as well.  Since I started in February, I have begun to focus my inspiration towards lifestyle sessions.  Lifestyle sessions capture and document real-life events and milestones such as candid moments between a couple or a mother and child.


I would love to capture your memories for you.  Contact me to discuss scheduling your photo session through my website or Facebook page.
