Hi, I'm Steph!
I am a maternity through babies first year photographer based in sunny Miami, Florida. I grew up in a household where the arts were very prominent. My mother was fond of poetry and music, I was a dancer from elementary through high school, and my dad was a hobbyist photographer. I guess you can say my father was the one who instilled the importance of holding onto memories and moments through pictures. I have over 20 shoe boxes and a couple of dozen photo albums to prove it!
For me, photography just happened. It is my second career, and I guess you could say that it found me. In 2009 I left my advertising career behind, moved to Los Angeles, California, picked up a camera, pursued curiosity, and built the business of my dreams. In 2013 I made my way back to the sunshine state and have since flourished my little business into a full-service photography studio.
I love to tell stories through my work. I want you to look at my images and feel something. Connection is huge for me, I feel in order to capture the real you, I need to get to know you first. I want to become your friend and give you an experience, not just take pretty pictures. Overall I am a pretty happy and upbeat person. I adore my job, I love my clients, and I am so delighted to share this part of myself with you.
Everyone loves posting images online. "I just want the digital files". This is often the case, but let's think this through. You get the digitals, but then what? You'll share a few amongst family and friends, post a couple on Instagram, make a Facebook album and hopefully print one? Your images deserve more. Adorn + Cherish is driven to not only create beautiful images but also fill the niche of offering exquisite heirloom products - albums to reminisce, luxurious cards to send to your loved ones, and real photographs to adorn your walls. This generation is the most photographed with the least to show for it. Here at A+C Photography, we're determined to change that...
