Since I was a little girl, cameras had surrounded me. Not necessarily pointing at me. But everywhere my family went there were at least two recording our life. So, for me, it felt perfectly natural to continue capturing life's beautiful moments… like a personal treasury.
In 1994, my career began as a graphic designer after graduating from Oregon State University. I then created DesignBin Studios as my graphic design outlet... after working for publication firms, a newspaper, and a corporation.
As DesignBin Studios gained momentum, I sought my studio cameras (having felt as though I'd lost an arm without a "serious" camera). So, in 2005, I bought my first Digital SLR and never looked back. At this point, I branched out with Stacee Taft Photography. As I acquired more experience, upgraded equipment, completed many courses, and spent time with numerous mentors and industry professionals; it's a real joy, now, to be shooting elegant, full-frame portraiture. The official business of Stacee Taft Photography is in full swing!
Day-to-day, however, I love working with each person. My goal is to keep each client at-ease and expressive throughout the session. I’m honored that clients have commended my outgoing and approachable nature. Yet my delight is that many become friends (which makes their next sessions even more fun).
At the end of the day, beautiful photography secures memories like a personal treasury. And it's my desire to help each one see the beauty God created in them and keep it in an image they will cherish for a lifetime. I 'focus' on personal portraiture of babies, toddlers, children, high school seniors and families. Of course, business and modeling clients are welcome, too.
I am so blessed to be able to capture finite moments like priceless time capsules. It’s who I am. I love getting to interact with amazing and unique people. And I find great pleasure in showing people their own God-given beauty.
