Hi there! I’m Stephanie, an award-winning photographer of all things beautiful located in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex! I’ve loved playing with children ever since I can remember! I was a dance teacher for many years focusing on younger kids and tweens. I studied Dance at the University of Texas at Austin and I love incorporating movement into photos of children (because let’s face it, what child is ever still?).
I believe all families are beautiful and everyone has their own special story to tell. Take a look around. I hope my images inspire you.
Ultimately that’s up to you! I have an extensive location guide that will share with you once you’ve booked your senior photography session. It includes locations all over the Dallas Fort Worth metroplex and even a few special spots in other parts of Texas! Perhaps you are more glam and the Dallas Arts District is your vibe or maybe a field filled with thousands of chairs in every shape and size imaginable stacked 30 feet high is your dream photoshoot? I’ll give you a few suggestions based on your personal style but in the end, you get to pick where you would like to shoot your senior session!
Where will we do the session?
You would be correct! I have been photographing Dallas newborns, babies, and families for the past 12 years! In 2019 I created Studio18 with my dear friend Lindey because we both love photographing high school seniors so much! Studio18 is taking a breather and I’m photographing seniors on my own for now!
Aren’t you that baby photographer?
Again, that’s up to you! I have Senior photography packages that include 1 look all the way up to however many you can stand! You will mostly be in charge of your own wardrobe but I do provide dresses, gowns and funky headpieces for Senior Studio Fine Art sessions. When it comes to wardrobe be creative, have fun, be YOU!
How many looks will we get? Do you provide any clothes?
It all depends on your goal! I typically do senior picture year long. But many schools will have a yearbook deadline that is in September or October. If you are trying to get Senior pictures for this then you will want to book May – August the summer following the Junior year. If your senior is an athlete or in many clubs then the sooner the better as the fall get really busy!
When is the best time to do Senior photographs?

I’ve been using Stephanie since my daughter was 6 months old. She’s 4 now. In between I’ve used other photographers that are closer to home simply because of convenience but they simply don’t measure up. I always find myself going back to Stephanie and driving the distance to see her. She’s so upbeat and super talented! We love her and look forward to seeing our latest pics!
Literally the best kids photographer on the planet. Dahlias and Daisies takes the stress out of kids photography. I don’t have to worry about a thing with them. Outfits? She’s got them. Props? Planned. Backdrops? Check. PATIENCE FOR MY KIDDOS? Priceless. She thinks of everything. The most phenomenal, creative products that are incomparable to anyone out there. Cling to this photographer and don’t let go. She will capture the memories you never knew you had for your children and you both.
I am in love with my newborn photos! Stephanie was very welcoming & handled my son with care. She is an absolute professional. She had a huge variety of outfits, accessories, backgrounds & props to chose from. I really appreciated how she took her time with our photo session & made sure our son was comfortable the whole time. I would totally recommend her for your child’s professional photography.
