I have always gravitated toward using natural light as my primary lighting source while leveraging the environment as my backdrop. I love the way the light lends a soft, natural feel to my images and the environment gives a glimpse beyond. Although I shoot with digital equipment, I originally began shooting with film and I still love the tonal qualities that film provides - my images tend to have a film shot feel. 

I always enjoy hearing about the way it makes them feel, the way they interpret it. The relationship between imagery and emotions can be profound. Imagery has the power to tell you a story, leave you with a feeling, remind you of days gone by. Bringing emotion, visual beauty and detail together creates powerful imagery. The kind of imagery that speaks to me as an artist. 

My sessions are relaxed and leisurely. I guide my clients throughout the process, making them feel comfortable and at ease. So often, my clients share how much they've enjoyed the process and were so relieved to have had such a good experience, even those that are uneasy in front of a camera.

Prices include up to 20 miles travel from zip code 06801. Additional charges apply for distances exceeding 20 miles, as well as fees in locations which charge fees to gain entry.

Classic sessions usually take about 1 hour, sometimes a little less, to create the kind of images that you'll love to look at for years to come.  I encourage my clients to dress in clothing that they feel comfortable in, but to give particular thought to how they want their images to look. Both I and many of my clients pull inspiration from Pinterest. It's a wonderful catalyst for planning and collecting ideas.

In my opinion groups look best coordinated, not matched in identical colors or patterns. Think about how stores and brands will group collections of clothing and accessories that compliment one another and look great paired together. Search for those in stores if you don't have something that you love already. Layers can add interest and can easily be removed to give a different look. Flowing fabrics work well in highlighting movement. Texture adds interest in detail.

Chemistry shows in photos - when people have great chemistry and connections it comes through. I love when my clients have authentic connections happening even though I am there with sharing time and space with them. I love documenting both the real moments in peoples lives as well as helping guide them to tell a story with the images we're creating. We spend time doing both posed and natural photos.

A few days after the session I share a sneak peek on social media sites. Clients are then provided with a link to a password protected gallery to view the edited photos from their session, within 2 weeks. Upon receiving their gallery link clients have 5 days to make their selections before the gallery link expires. The gallery may be reactivated for a $25 fee if clients would like more time. After their items have been ordered their selections will arrive within 2-3 weeks, sometimes sooner.

about Stacy


about Stacy


I find inspiration in the big and small, the significant and insignificant. I'm very drawn to details and find the little things can make the most impact. For me, creating art through photography is incredibly rewarding. It instantly brings me back to a moment in time, a conversation, a feeling, a random detail. 

I am a lover of coffee, music and good food. I love holidays, they're one more reason to celebrate and spend uninterrupted time with the ones I love. I am inspired by fashion, design, cinema, nature, feelgood Upworthy articles and pop culture. I love HBO series, watching movies and exploring new places.

I feel happy when my longtime clients return, year after year. I like seeing how their children have grown and hearing about the new things happening in their lives. It's a lot like catching up with an old friend. I also love meeting new people and helping them tell their story - freeze their moments in time - through my eyes. Everyone has a unique story to tell - one of celebrations, love, growth and change; triumphs and challenges. I love being a part of helping my clients capture those moments and tell their own unique story.

If my style of photography speaks to you, contact me so we can talk about booking your custom session.

“From the minute I met Stacy, I knew we were going to have a wonderful experience.  My family and I are not usually comfortable in front of the camera, and our pictures can sometimes look posed and stiff.  Stacy made the whole thing utterly relaxed and enjoyable.  She spent a lot of time with us, from explaining how to prepare for the session to leisurely walking around our property with us to find the best possible spots for photos.  We didn’t have to think … just be ourselves and relate to each other in a truly authentic way.  She did the rest, and was able to capture the most wonderful moments.  She has a fabulous eye for what’s genuine and beautiful.  Our pictures came out simply stunning, more so than I could have ever hoped for. We got so many compliments on our holiday card, and now I’m giving many of the other pictures as gifts for family as well as hanging many in our home.  The opportunity to purchase a CD of the photos is fantastic, because I wasn’t on the spot to decide which ones I wanted in which sizes, etc.  There is nothing I would have changed about our experience, and I would highly recommend Stacy to anyone!”  

- Nancy B.

 

"It’s not easy selecting someone to photograph your daughter for senior pictures.  My daughter had heard that a number of her friends were very pleased with Stacy Burt’s services, both quality of photography and cost.  Hence, we contacted Stacy and she accommodated us quickly and set up a place and time for the picture taking.  At the shoot, Stacy connected with my daughter right away, made her feel very comfortable and got right into taking shots.  My daughter was very relaxed and Stacy took many pictures from many perspectives and positions.  Stacy was a pleasure to work with.  She more than met the time frames she had stated to us and the pictures were excellent, so excellent, that it was extremely difficult to narrow it down to the ones we would actually select for the yearbook and for family and friends.  Stacy was also very accommodating for any adjustments we desired.  From start to finish, Stacy was a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend her to family and friends."

- Frank O. 

 

"I've been working on projects with Stacy for a couple of years now, and I'm always blown away by her ability to capture images with such artistry.  I am camera shy, and it's such a challenge for me to even agree to have my picture taken (and it usually shows in pictures how uncomfortable I am).  Stacy understands that most of us have insecurities, and she has a personality that you trust and feel at ease.  As far as her work, the best way for me to describe what I see is that she captures life, organically, with the ability to suit any of her client's image request.  Stacy is magic behind her camera!

-Maria R. 

 

“Working with Stacy was a wonderful experience from start to finish.  It quickly became clear that she was dedicated to making her clients confident in her attention to detail and showed professionalism throughout. She provided us with recommendations to have things run smoothly throughout the day.  We knew we had nothing to worry about.  She did an outstanding job chronicling the highlights of the day with Attorney Pete Wright at the Wrightslaw conference.  She was extremely proficient at working with the light that was available within the space and moved about the entire conference in a very unobtrusive way.  She provided us with very clear, sharp images that featured a variety of highlights throughout the day and it was done very promptly.  We would love the opportunity to work with her again and would highly recommend her without any reservations.”  

- Faith F.

 

"Our office is beautiful and tranquil with the new artwork.  Our patients as well as staff have all commented on the artwork and it is really liked by all.  We have had many of the staff stopping in to view it after hearing from someone else just how nice it is! ... We are very happy with the selections and have something in all the rooms as well as the patient common areas. "

People come in all shapes, sizes, with different strengths and abilities.  Those who have a child with unique needs know that along with frustrations and challenges, come triumphs and success.  We also know that although our children may not be typical in some ways, they are extraordinary in so many others.  

As a mother of both typical and non-typical children, I not only understand the nuances of a day in the life, but have lived through many of them.  We have good days and not so good days.  We work hard everyday to overcome the challenges and accentuate the strengths.  Like most parents, we were given the very special job of raising children who amaze us every day.  They make us laugh, cry, slow down, speed up, work harder, stay awake longer and rise earlier; live in the moment and dream bigger dreams.  

As a family, we don't strive for perfection; we strive for giving it our best.  We don't focus solely on the goal; we try to appreciate the journey.  We have learned as a family what it truly means to be accepting.  

Throughout the years, documenting my children's lives has been one of the most fulfilling, nurturing, healing and emotive things I have done.  Each and every time I look through the thousands of images I have captured I feel  joy; for the many things we have to be thankful for; for the successes and celebrations; for the unique qualities each child has.  Sometimes I feel  sadness too; for the years that have flown bye much quicker than I ever could have imagined.

All children, whether typical or not, should be captured just as they are in photographs, both individually and as part of their families throughout their entire lives.  It is in truth and acceptance that we can honor their uniqueness and celebrate their colors.  Let them be who they are and never dream of apologizing for what they're not. 

I would love the opportunity to work with you and your child so you can celebrate the uniqueness of your firework and create meaningful heirlooms you'll treasure forever.  Please contact me so I can explain how we can get started.

Current research suggests that the display of representational visual art (such as photographs) depicting nature in healthcare settings can effectively relieve (severe) pain in patients and promote comfort.

Because the best medical facility design plans make patients' comfort a priority, it is incredibly important to consider that nature themed fine art contributes greatly to a healing environment.
