I use photography as a form of self expression. In my regular life I would consider myself a very easy going person, which I think shows in my work. I don't try to say that I only shoot one category of photography and I honestly don't know that you could really categorize my work. Primarily my goal is to create images that people genuinely love and react to. Photography has gone from being a occasional hobby into a way for me to deeply invest my time and efforts into a passion that only keeps growing. I love changing and mixing my photography as much as possible.

 

I have always been fascinated by portraits and incorporating unique surroundings or objects to create a truly interesting image. I thoroughly enjoy changing my techniques on a regular basis and constantly trying new concepts. I ultimately love creating work that has a weird look to it and is eye catching. I love to step out of my comfort zone for shoots as much as possible. While shooting I carry a variety of cameras, both digital and film, I am fascinated by the natural uniqueness that film creates as well as all the possibilities digital images give me.

 

My work has been published in Coy Magazine and Institute Magazine, both out of the U.K. I have a strong working relationship with modeling agencies in Seattle, including Heffner Management and TCM Models, as well as Q Models in Portland. I have been so lucky to work with Free People Seattle, as well as local jewelry companies like Speckled & Clay and Lembas Jewelry.

Artist Statement

 

What does real family life look like?  All around us, we see ‘best of’ imagery.  The thoughtfully culled collections of social media give the impression that our own messy and ordinary lives are somehow lacking.

 

This collection of images comes from a larger body my work that shows a year in the life of my little family, an honest telling.  Embracing the unkempt and everyday moments, and finding some sense of order amidst the chaos of raising two children in a small home.  Unexpected symmetry and visual humor presents itself daily, if only we’re there to take notice.

Artist Statement

 

As most women out there, I imagine, I face a nearly constant battle between the different sides of myself and how I would like the world to perceive me.  I want to be strong—of will and of heart…but also feminine, with a certain understated sexuality….but also possessing the nurturing and maternal instincts that are supposedly inherent in each of us women.  This struggle between these different sides is only exaggerated by acknowledging that most of us also fall prey to the danger that is comparison.  The fear of coming up short when measured against every woman in the room, whatever that ‘room’ may be.

 

I enjoy having women in front of my camera, always aiming to help them feel in touch with the parts of themselves that they most want to connect with.  The result I’m seeking is exposure, sometimes literal and sometimes figurative—sometimes literal leading to figurative, as removing layers can certainly help to open up emotionally.  My subjects are exploring all their battling sides during our time together—sides that they may not have known were there—and my role is to give them a safe space where there is no need for cruel comparison.

    Every living being has the gift of emotion, and our passions can be conveyed artfully with moving pictures. As a visual artist, my favorite creative projects involve emotional portraiture with a message. The topics I love to portray are ones that may inspire, empathize, or bring light to an area of human consciousness that is shunned in darkness.

    Currently, I am driven to meld moving pictures with sound to deliver my message. In the backseat of the family van, I used to close my eyes and conjure up intriguing visuals that danced to whatever song my parent's radio played. Years went by, and I clouded my creative visions for videography, stunted by the gossip about expensive camera equipment and complicated editing software.

    I have been musing in front of the lens since the age of eighteen, collaborating with photographers as well as painters and sketch artists. Through the use of my body as an art form, I have finally built up the courage to purchase my video camera and instigate my own productions with the actors, musicians, and models I have connected with along my journey.

    I am still in the experimental "honeymoon phase" of my video art. Fall of 2017 I upgraded to top-tier editing software, and I feel I have barely scraped the tip of the iceberg in exploring its capacities. My daydreams are finally living!

    Metaphoric symbolism tied to universal emotions and predicaments are the essence of my short films. I strive to challenge, empathize, and rejuvenate those who graciously give their time to view my work. Thank you!

The dynamic balance which is at the heart of masterful positions and movements.  It is the inner confidence and control which leads to the creation of beauty, grace, and mastery to create form, movement and a vision of something fleeting but memorable.

My name is Stephanie Michaelis and photography is my passion.  I started my business in 2015 and it has been the most incredibly fulfilling journey.  I've always had a passion for photography but it wasn't until I had my 5th (you read that right, FIFTH) child that I realized how much a I enjoy documenting everyday life.  Do you have a milestone moment that needs to be captured or want to create beautiful art of your everyday life?  I can show you options on the perfect way to create lasting memories.

 

I consider myself a documentary photographer, I love to capture real life and moments as they are.  There's nothing better than a real laugh, a deep hug, or a loving smile. I photograph people in their homes, outdoors or in my Seattle studio space.  I keep a very relaxed environment, no stressing, and no posing.  I ask you to be yourself and enjoy the moment.  It’s the perfect opportunity to focus only on loving and connecting with the people that mean the most to you.   

 

I am currently booking in studio Baby Love sessions with the focus on the parent/child bond.  I am also booking outdoor and in-home documentary sessions.  I would be happy to talk to you about what type of session is right for you and your family.  You can also find more information about my business on my website or on my Facebook business page.  I look forward to photographing you!
