Stephanie – Lifestyle Photo Session
When Stephanie reached out in need of some lifestyle photos, I was so happy to learn she’s not only an entrepreneur but a life coach for women and teenage girls. She’s also a writer and public speaker on important issues that hit home with every woman at some point in her life, like body image and self-worth. Hers is the kind of positive, uplifting work that this world can never have too much of, especially lately.
I love every opportunity I get to work with a woman who’s found her passion. But what’s even better is when I get to work with a woman who’s helping other women find theirs. Needless to say, I was more than happy to help Stephanie promote her business with some lifestyle photos for her website that would reflect who she is, in a place that is special to her and her family.

We had our photo session on a breezy summer day near Point Reyes Station, just northwest of San Francisco. Point Reyes Station and the surrounding area has become one of my favorite locations for lifestyle shoots – offering lush greenery, golden grasses, bayside trails, and rolling hills all within a short driving distance.
I captured a few shots of Stephanie (who was actually about three months pregnant at the time) with her daughter Lily and their dog, Bandon, before she and I went off on our own for her individual shots (Lily and Bandon went home with their dad).
As Stephanie and I explored the area together, chasing the sunlight as the fog rolled gracefully into Tomales Bay, we chatted about our work and our families, what inspires us, and the societal pressures that women and girls face to have Instagram-worthy lives.
As women, it’s so important for us to not only love and accept ourselves for who we are but to show support for each other, too. Kudos to Stephanie and other women entrepreneurs like her for being a part of a positive movement in that direction.
Check out some photos from my session with Stephanie below, and if you’re interested in booking a lifestyle session of your own in the Bay Area or beyond, I’d love to hear from you.
