Hi! I'm Stephanie!
And as your potential photographer, you probably want to know a little more about me. I was born Stephanie Brooke Johnson, but in 2011 I married the love of my life and surrendered Johnson for Sutherlin. My husband, Jim and I currently live in Roseville, CA with a black dog named Katie, a bearded dragon named Marshall and a tank full of anonymous fish.
I can't pinpoint the exact moment that photography entered my life. I was always trying to get my hands on my dad's Canon 35mm camera as a kid. I would "waste" roll after roll of his film until he finally got me my own for Christmas when I was ten. I loved that camera. I took it with me everywhere I went, snapping photos of everything from my friends creating strange culinary combinations at sleepovers to ants in the grass and double rainbows.
Today not much has changed except the frequency of sleepovers. I love to capture life's little moments. I'm fascinated by organic reactions. My favorite part of a wedding is catching the groom's face as his bride steps into view. Most people are fixed on the beautiful girl in the big white dress, but my eye always goes to the groom.
When my face is not behind a camera, it can usually be found behind a computer screen working on my latest writing project or in the kitchen baking or concocting some form of vegetarian dish that, hopefully, my meat-eater husband will enjoy. I also love hiking, scrapbooking, reading, yoga and spending as much time as possible with my family and friends.
