"Here'€™s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They'€™re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can'€™t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do."  It's Peanut Butter Jelly Time!


I love to travel, and will travel anywhere given travel expenses are paid for, I DO have a valid passport!

Nice to meet you, I'm Stephanie, or Steph, get the idea.  I've modeling since November 2004.  I am very energetic and I bring my energy and ideas to every shoot.  I am located in the heart of Illinois and am only 2.5 hours from Chicago, and 3 hours from St. Louis.
I expect professionalism and respect before and during the shoot,and you will recieve the same from me.  I urge you to contact photographers I have worked with in the past as references.  I have many creative ideas that can mutually benefit both my and the photographers portfolio, and I am always eager to try something new.  I enjoy working both in studio and outside.  I don't like to "theme" a shoot, I think it's best when an idea or wardrobe is set, but not in an attempt to duplicate another idea.  I prefer originality!
I give every shoot my best and I expect the same in return.  I am also available as a hair stylist, makeup stylist, and photoshop wizard (#1717784).
I have my Bachelors degree from Eureka College (Ronald Reagan's alma mater), where I majored in Psychology and Criminal Justice.  I am a freelance graphic artist, and have my own company "Birch Design".

Hope to shoot with you soon smile

I prefer paid shoots.  I will offer TFP/TFCD shoots on a case to case basis if I feel it can mutually benefit our portfolios, or if I've worked with you before.  I have a list of shoots/ideas I'd like to add to my portfolio, please contact me for details if you have something unique to offer (including couples shoots).  I WILL NOT do a TFP/TFCD shoot just because, I need an idea in mind...challenge me! 

My rates are very reasonable and are as follows:
$50-$75 per hour  : Fashion, Glamour
$75-$100 per hour : Swimwear, Lingerie


I understand, things come up, stuff happens, which is why I have different terms for different situations..
If I am traveling to you for a shoot, and you are not local, I expect any cancellations to take place before I travel to you, any cancellations less than one week before the shoot will be 50% of booked amount.  If I have already traveled to you and you cancel will be 100% of booked amount.
If you are local, any cancellation less than 48 hours in advance is considered unprofessional and will be 50% of booked amount.

Please don't be a flake, I wouldn't do it to you.  I'm nice, fun, and I'll make you laugh...promise
