A stunning moment of Stephanie Simmons twirling around with her youngest at Fry Family Park at sunset

Hello there!

I'm so glad you're here! I am a lifestyle photographer based out of Canton, Ohio specializing in maternity, newborn, and family portraiture for the Akron / Canton area. I pour my heart into every session I do and am passionate about documenting the moments you’ll want to remember for years to come. Tickles, cuddles, walking hand in hand, playing together, and all the little details. My focus for every session is to capture the authentic moments and details that tell your family story. I can't wait to meet you and start documenting your family's sweet moments too!

“You will never have this day with your children again. Tomorrow, they will be a little bit older than they were today. This day is a gift. Breathe and notice. Smell and touch them; study their faces and little feet and pay attention. Relish the charms of the present. Enjoy today Momma, it will be over before you know it.”-Jen Hatmaker

The Ruff Family

"Stephanie's photos are more than just beautiful, they capture real moments and emotions. She takes such care in her work and developing a personal connection that shines through. I found her to be responsive and professional, and she was very thoughtful in how to set up sessions to work best for our family. I'd recommend her in a heartbeat and definitely want to work with her again in future."

The Morgan Family

"Stephanie is an AMAZING photographer. Not only does she capture the best moments, she's personable, makes you laugh, and just makes the entire experience fun. She can style each person's outfit and she even has lots of dresses for women to use from her own client wardrobe. I have had my family's photos taken 3x now with Stephanie and each session is unique and the photos always turn out magical and better than I could even imagine!"

The Steele Family

"Stephanie's work truly shows that a picture is worth a thousand words! She is passionate about her photography and light obsessed, capturing the most spectacular images. She especially understands kids and works with them in a way that they don't even know they are being photographed, capturing life's precious moments and laughter. Nothing is ever fake or posed, truley in the moment-how it should be! You will not be disappointed!"

The Candea Family

"I was sooo excited to get our family photos done with Stephanie and they turned out better than anticipated! Absolutely beautiful!! We will cherish these photos forever. I’ve already recommended her to all my family and friends."

The Compan Family

"Stephanie was amazing!!! Very patient with our twins and 4 year old. Captured every essence of my family. I would highly recommend her and everything she has to offer!"
