I am a quirky, creative, girl boss with a witty sense of humour. I am passionate about helping people tell their stories.
I took the leap into full time entrepreneurship in November 2019, after my husband suffered a major health crisis. It was a difficult choice to leave my position as Manager of Development & Community Relations for a women's shelter because the work was meaningful & life changing for the women who needed us.
But I have always tried to live life fully, and after this sudden reminder about how fragile life is when my husband underwent heart surgery, I didn’t want to have any regrets. Once he was on the road to recovery, I knew it was time to pursue my entrepreneurial dreams.
And, here I am, loving every minute of it. Between Embrace Photography & my other business Say It with Stacey, I love the magic I get to create in both businesses every single day.
In addition to family & pet photography, I have a passion for helping other’s build their small businesses through my photography & marketing consulting services.
Your success is my success.
My portfolio of clients keeps growing and I know I am walking the talk, because I continue to attract my ideal clients.
My academic credentials (I hold an Honours Bachelor of Commerce degree specializing in marketing) & my 20 years of sales and marketing experiencing ranging from men’s hockey team to women’s shelter (it couldn’t be more apples to oranges) backed with a proven record of creative revenue generation ideas, have helped me and my clients find success.
No matter the industry you’re in, marketing principles are all the same. All you need to do is adapt your messaging to fit your industry. However, the foundation of attracting your ideal client is "be authentic to you." It really is that simple.
I can help you achieve this through bonafide marketing strategies & photography. As an added bonus for my clients that are interested in weaving in philanthropy as part of their business activities, this is one of my areas of specialty. If this resonates with you too, then let's talk. It can be a one-off campaign or something you do all year long.
I take pride in providing an easy photoshoot experience; don't be nervous, don't wait till you lose weight, don't let all the millions of excuses I’ve heard over the years hold you back. Trust me, it's all about angles, posing and lighting to get the photos you're looking for.
In addition to headshots & branding photography, I also love family photography, pet photography and fun creative projects.
I've discovered throughout the years, I prefer to serve these niche markets and therefore, I don’t do newborn or large weddings, however I am happy to provide referrals to other amazing camera artists who do.
Don’t hesitate to reach out, I’d love to connect.Let's capture what you're looking for. I'd be honoured to help.
