Meet Baby Boy "H"

I always love photographing newborns, but unfortunately they don't always love me. LOL! Baby "H" was definately a challenge for me. He loved to be swaddled and with his mommy. He did not like to be naked, moved or put into anything but mommies arms! I don't blame them though.

I tried so hard for some unique shots... but maybe my next newborn. Ha Ha! Isn't he cute though still! Isn't the family absolutely adorable!! They are so happy and so excited to have a family of four and two precious little boys.

I thought the original was fantastic but I did black and white cause I love the contrast with the background.

Baby Kaden Sneak Peak

I cannot believe my adorable nephew is already 3 months old. Where does time go. I feel like just a few months ago I was holding him ub my arms doing a newborn session with him!

He did not enjoy me very much. He cried most of the time... until he fell asleep and then he awoke bright eyed. It was probably the longest newborn session I have had but got some super cute shots of his big blue eyes so it was worth every minute.

XOXOXO Love you Baby Kaden!

A Birthday Party for a Princess!

This was one of those birthday parties you would see in a Martha Stewart Magazine! Mommy thought of every idea possible for her daughters 3rd birthday party.
Congrats to you Olivia on your 3rd birthday. You are beautiful and your party was so magical! And the girls who dressed up as princesses for your party were so amazing and so sweet! I had so much fun sharing this party with you!

Here are some favorites...

Class of 2011 - I need Senior Ambassadors!

It's already that time of year! Thousands of Seniors are graduating and thousands more are preparing their way for their last year in High School. It's exciting and stressful all at the same time. Career fairs, SAT's, college, and yes... Senior Pictures!!

Senior pictures have changed significantly since I was a Senior 10 years ago. Seniors are wanting photos that display who they are. They want fun, fresh, and creative photos to show their classmates their hobbies, interests and personality.

Stefani Marie Photography is looking for two Senior Ambassadors from each High School for the 2011 year. This will be my first year offering a Senior Ambassador program and I am so excited to be able to extend this program out to those that are up for this challenge! It is so easy too. If you are interested email me at or call/text me at (208) 412-1215.

What makes a Good Senior Ambassador?
Someone who is outgoing, involved in activities at the High School such as sports, activities, band, cheerleaders, dance, or student council. A good Senior Ambassador will help promote my business and in return for your referrals you will earn print credits for their Senior Pictures.

What will you get for being a Senior Ambassador

You will get half off a regular Senior Session ($75.00 Discount). You will receive business cards to pass out to friends and family and for every referral you send my way that books for a session you will receive $10.00 in print credits. No limit on credits. These referrals can be for Senior, Infant, Family, Wedding or Engagement sessions too!

I don’t like a lot of posing, sit behind a set of big bright flashing lights and smile photos. No two people are the same so why should your photo be. I don’t like taking the same pictures of everyone. Bring props to your session. If it’s meaningful to you, it’s meant to be in your pictures. These can include your guitar, sports equipment, sunglasses, art supplies, car, etc. Location is up to you too. My sessions are designed with you in mind. The more people you refer to Stefani Marie Photography, the better your rewards will be.

Example of the business cards you will receive to pass out to family and friends.

Who can be a Senior Ambassador

Treasure Valley Area high school seniors graduating in 2011 are eligible for this fantastic offer. If you think you have what it takes, email me at and I will send you a short application. Sign up quickly as I’ll only be accepting at most two seniors from each school.




I have some great go-to places but it’s all up to you. Where do you want to go? Any location within Treasure Valley area is fair game

• Senior Ambassadors will receive exclusive discounts and fantastic Senior Portraits! A CD to share with family and friends, and an online gallery to easily share on facebook and myspace.

• Free student business cards to help you earn credits (only available to senior ambassadors)
• 1/2 off your regular priced session ($75.00 Value!)

Megan and Chad Wedding Sneak Peak

My first wedding of the year! Oh have I missed you. Weddings are some of my favorite things to photograph. This wedding was so laid back and everyone was so friendly. The bride and groom were so fun to work with. I have yet to meet a bridezilla! Hopefully I never cross paths with one. LOL! Here are a few of my favorites.
