Beautiful Moments

Capturing all of life's most

I’m a wife, a mom and I love Jesus. We live a primitive lifestyle and most days you will find us either sitting by the warmth of our wood stove, swimming in our spring fed pond, hiking or traveling somewhere fun. We have chickens, ducks, horses, dogs, and a cat. If you ask us what our favorite TV show is, we couldn’t tell you because we haven’t watched TV in over 10 years. Our television is mostly for looks - Ha!
My heart is drawn to the timeless aesthetic of film. While I studied film photography through high school and college, my love for film began as a child. I spent countless hours with my grandpa, who was hobby film photographer, and I started using my very own film camera at 13 years old. When I finally had my chance to develop my own images in the darkroom, I was hooked for life. Fast-forward 20 years, I now focus on primarily portrait photography, utilizing a blend of medium format, 35 mm and DLSR. My passion is serving clients who are looking for a fine art aesthetic and love a timeless, artful look for their wedding or family portraits. We love traveling, which makes destination weddings or portrait sessions our favorite. 

hi friends, i'm staci

Or maybe I wish I was recovering...

I'm a recovering perfectionist

That dreamy natural sunset light

I'm golden hour obsessed

As long as you only ask me to quote the Princess Bride

I can quote you any movie

"Staci did an AMAZING job during our photo session! My husband and I had no clue how to pose together, how to dress, what color or even location since we had just moved to KC. Staci was so professional and e-mailed me everything I needed in order to be ready for our shoot. She gave us direction during the shoot, and was also open to our ideas at the same time."

"... She made visits to both places before the event to scope out the best places for the most beautiful pictures. And boy did that pay off! It was a joy just to be in her and her husband's presence. Knowing she is the recorder and keeper of your memories of the day allows for a very calming, confident feeling." 


Gwen Scott (mother of the bride)

"Amazing to work with!!! She does everything in her power to make sure that your photos are exactly what you're lookingn for!!! Even when you get 3 seasons of weather all in one day. I cannot recommend her enough!!!!"
