Perhaps I will just put myself out there

I've decided that I want to be that photographer that inspires other photographers and artists and really get into the mix and make a name for myself in this industry. I am going to start to push forward with this, and just make it happen. I told Leslie Burns this once, and she agreed that I would be a good one for it. So here goes, I have put myself out there. I was just inspired by this while reading the blog of photographer Nick Onken, I just have decied its best to be open. My goal for this blog is a place that people can come to learn not only about me, but what I think about everything.

Happy to Be Chillin

I am very happy about today and I am glad that this week has officially ended. I must admit, it was a bit overwhelming. My tasks for the week were wrapping out Baby On Board; the independent comedy I had been working on for the past few weeks. On top of that, I was the audition coordinator for Who’s Got Jokes and we had live auditions on Friday and Saturday. ALSO Rodney Perry was also in town and agreed to let me shoot him for The Comedian Project, a new documentary portrait project I am working on. It was really just a lot. Everything went smoothly, I sort of feel silly for having an internal freak out. THANK YOU JESUS!!!

Right now it just feels good to be at my grandmas house on Easter Sunday. Chilling with the fam, catching up on my reality shows, shooting the breeze about teen life with my cousins. I’ve laid around here it feels good to just finally lie down and be lazy at grandmas house. WOW!! I worked every single day this week. I’m a hustler so it’s all good; but WOW, am I exhausted. Pat on my back for getting it all done. HEY! GO STEPHANIE! GO STEPHANIE! GO STEPHANIE!


As much as money I spend renting out random studio space, I decided to go ahead and get a studio space of my own. When Photographers Mark Niemi, John Kramer and Charles Albarran, made an offer to have me join there team at Studio 500 West ( website to come) I could not turn the offer down. It feels good. I made a goal to step up my photo game this year and so far so good. I am pretty proud of myself, and super stoked to have my own space.
