Stacie Kemp Photography Blog bio picture
  • Welcome

    I'm so happy you are here! My name is Stacie Kemp, I'm an Iowa girl who married and uprooted myself and business to Chicago, IL. I love family, friends, food, fashion and capturing life's moments involving all of the above!

    My love affair with photography began in college. Do you know that magical feeling you get when you wake up Christmas morning? That's the feeling I get every time I photograph, every time I capture the essence of someone's personality, the love between couples and families, the awe and wonder of a child. I'm passionate about my art and about capturing every fun, exciting, silly, fashionable, quiet, romantic and crazy moment of life.

    If you'd like to schedule a session, I'd love to hear from you! I strive to make every session unique and special to you. Please contact me at 115,116,97,99,105,101,107,101,109,112,112,104,111,116,111,103,114,97,112,104,121,64,103,109,97,105,108,46,99,111,109,46.moc.liamg@yhpargotohppmekeicats

Thought for the day… Designing a life you love

In this day and age, it’s easy to feel like you have to do it all. If you are starting a photography business, you especially feel like you have to take every wedding, couple, family, senior, etc that comes your way. You want the work so you take everything you can get, even if it’s not what you like! Or maybe you are more established and doing studio work but what you REALLY want to be doing is all natural light photography on location. I’m here to tell you it’s okay to follow your passion (the type of work you are really drawn to) and to let everything else fall to the wayside. It seems counter intuitive to turn business away however once you really focus in on the work you are passionate about, people will really start to take notice and you will find yourself getting busier with the type of work you actually love.

If you don’t know what it is you love yet, that’s absolutely okay! I’ve been a photographer for 8 years and it took me until about 2 years ago before I really started to figure it out. I find the best way to make progress is to take little breaks and check in with yourself. Sip some tea or coffee and ask yourself what it is you are feeling. Do you get excited about photographing families but the thought of taking on a wedding make you break out into sweat? These are little clues that will help guide you along the way.
