Hi! I’m Stephanie Olsen and I’m so glad you are here!
I’ve been a photographer for half of my life.
This industry is all I know and it’s who I am. I can’t think of or want to do anything else. I have been rewarded and have had so much joy brought to me photographing people. I have learned so many lessons over the last 2 decades and consider myself very blessed to have the career that I do. I am also committed to continued education, I am a Certified Professional Photographer, will shortly have my Craftsman Degree and look forward to the challenge of a Master of Photography Degree via PPA. I also truly enjoy mentoring and teaching fellow and upcoming photographers.
As you can see, I have a family that I am absolutely in love with. Not pictured, that we love just as much, are our hens. I never thought of taking them to beach but maybe I should try!
We love to travel, try new foods, play card games (but I like word card games, not the traditional stuff that Todd likes, like Whist!) and we especially love spending time in our vacation home in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom. Todd is a great skier and and loves to mountain bike, while Lake Willoughby, which is just a roll down the hill, is one of my favorite places on earth. Natalie has been on some amazing trips with us including the Amazon Rainforest and Galapagos Islands and she did it like a pro!
I am a Sting fan, a tea lover and don’t buy paper napkins. I make my own napkins and still have my mom’s from the 70’s. I try not to buy paper towels either. I’m working on living a plastic free life. It’s been quite a challenge!
I’m the classic Italian girl that loves to cook, feed and entertain as much as possible. I am at my happiest when my house feels like a B&B! My backyard is one of my happy places too. When the table under the pergola is full, the campfire is crackling and the laughter is rolling.
One thing I practice daily is being grateful. I’m grateful for my home. I’m grateful that it’s warm and safe and I have a bed to sleep in. That’s just for starters. I’m grateful for the silliest things and when they come to mind with gratefulness, it makes me happy.
I’m grateful you clicked on this page!
