lifestyle + portrait photographer

Hi, I'm


A Canon-shooting foodie who defines success as sitting on the couch with my family.

I believe in being a forever student of my craft and after years of practice (24 to be exact), I have lighting, composition, and posing locked in to make you look amazing AF. because life is way too short to risk having a shitty portrait experience.

(And my Mom is mad at me because I said 'shitty' on my website, but that's me.)

more about me

My husband, Ryan, and I have been married 21 years and we have a fourth grader who goes by Violet.

Throw in three pets and you have yourself the Ideus family.

An extroverted introvert who loves cooking and travel, but truly am a homebody.

real words from real people

I learned so much from Stacy in our short time together. I love the calm she brought in a storm. Really, her gift is beyond photography. She brings peace to people which is hard to do in this busy world. I found myself not wanting her to leave... she was medicinal to me for real-zes.... she is da bomb. I know my friend has always talked about how amazing she is, but this is the first time I got an insiders look. Stacy is such a blessing and I’m grateful for the time she gave us.



Think I could be the photographer for you?
