Hello, I'm Stephanie!


I am the owner and photographer behind Whimsy & Wilderness Photography, as well as a writer, an avid hiker, and a mama to two little adventurers. My family has lived in Virginia, Tennessee, and currently reside near Bangor, Maine, with a small homestead that consists of a garden, chickens, a dog, and our two cats who are in charge of everything. I love reading, writing, travel, and chasing novel experiences, and my goal is always to make the people around me feel at ease.


The role of photographer is a privilege--by hiring me, you are trusting me with your memories, and often your most intimate and vulnerable moments. And while I take that role very seriously, my goal is for your session to be as easy as possible, capturing the moments you never want to forget, that are joyfully and authentically you.

"If more of us valued food, and cheer, and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world."
