Welcome! I'm glad you've stopped by to see some of my work.
First and foremost, let me be honest, I'm not a blogger. I can only hope by opening myself up to blogging, I'll be better at writing... eventually. But, let's be honest, probably not.
I'm Stefani LaViers, the owner and sole photographer here at Stefani LaViers Photography LLC. I have always loved photography but in the last 6 years it has become a serious hobby. I decided that 2018 is going to be my first year as an official business. I'm excited to have a job and a passion that I absolutely love.
Five years ago, my husband, Will, bought me my first DSLR camera, before the birth of our first son, Mason. I had no idea what I was doing but I was determined. I had always taken photos with my cell phone camera but I wanted nicer photos. I wanted 'professional' looking photos of my little one. It was definitely NOT as easy as I thought it would be. I didn't just want to set my camera to 'auto' and have at it.
By the birth of my second son, Camden, I was set out to take newborn photos myself. What a crock that was! Never being trained in newborn photography, I should have known better. The wrapping and posing was all wrong. From that point on, I decided I'd never do another newborn. While I'd love to cuddle your baby, you don't want me to photograph those adorable little poses. They'll be a "Pinterest fail" for sure! HAHAHA.
My children have given me a passion for small children portraiture while have a sister in high school has given me a passion for high school seniors.
I'm excited to be on this journey as a small business owner here in Harford County, Maryland.
