A little bit about me...
In case you were wondering about the gal 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 a new location, new poses, etc.
I started blogging because I wanted a way to introduce clients to the world of photography. Initially it was just to share my own photography with the world but it started to change. Whether it be to help my clients capture their own images or how to prepare for a photo shoot, I wanted to share!! Share as much information as I could with my clients.
My blog is mostly a resource for clients. I like to share information about all things photography. Most clients have trouble figuring out how to prepare for a photo shoot so I like to use my blog as a way to inform clients about what to wear or even how to pick a great location that fits their personality.
In the past, my photography business has mostly focused on family photography but recently I have been getting very interested in newborn photography. I have always loved photographing children and getting their unique expressions. You can't typically just sit a child down and take their picture. You must interact with them and sometimes even chase them around to get a great image. With newborns, a lot of preparation goes into account in addition to learning all about safety, posing, etc. It's my new favorite area of focus and I'm so excited!
One message that I hope people take away from my blog is that I have a love of photography and want to share that love with my clients and others. I want people to find me as not just their photographer but their go-to person for everything that has to do with their photo shoot!
